First of all, I really don't think this will put an end to people getting scammed...however, I know it will help significantly
Sadly, I keep seeing topics like this: http://www.ko4life.com/forums/index....owtopic=181632

I think an extremely effective way to end these no-help situations is by adding a (perhaps optional...because not everyone who uses these forums actually plays ko) email that will be shown on each person's profile or even their little info on the left for each post they make that will be their dedicated email that they will be using for trades...
a lot of people got scammed by so called "impersonators" who made emails that resembled the actual ko4life troll's email...so if everyone had a specific email, people who were discussing trades via msn could just check and see to make sure it don't happen to them.
Yes, I know the trusted trade moderator feature kind of kills this, but a lot of people who aren't frequent on ko4life don't even trust that, they want to make their own deals with the people they meet and decide for themselves are trustable.
Maybe even make it so that the people could register those specific emails, but the people who wanted to trade with them would have to "request" to be able to see that email, just for privacy reasons so everyone can't have everyone else's email...
just an idea :P now shoot it down
