I’ve posted an ad on the marketplace and I’ve received messages from a new member here obviously using photos of somebody else’s uke and even photoshopping (very poorly might I add) his name on a piece of paper next to the uke. Who do I report this to in order to make sure they don’t actually scam someone?

I believe that the box containing the text of a personal message has a report option: bottom left hand corner ‘report’ in green lettering. Click on that writing and I think that that starts the process.

+1 on what Graham said ^ You can also click on the person's name and that will bring you to their profile. There will be a "report" button to the right of their screen name and you can use that to report the member as well. Thanks for helping to keep the UU Forum spam-free!

I see the Report link at the bottom left, but I'm not seeing a Report link in the profile window. Here's a screen shot of your profile.

Maybe double click on their profile name - that should bring you to their actual profile page. The report link will appear to the right of their name on their profile page:

Same thing happened to me. It seems they may be targeting "Want To Buy" posts. It's easy enough to find photos of something if you know what a person is looking for. A new member "Allen 98" tried to get me to send them money via Zelle. They stopped communicating when I said since they had just signed up that day and did not have any posts, we would need to use PayPal.
