This is a thoughtful response, and helpful. ThanksI am not speaking for Brian, but yes, he is the whole enchilada, take it or leave it.
That being said, I can see legitimate reasons for TUGBBS not posting all of its security checks (and balances) ahead of time. The checks themselves are little traps for the scammer to fail. Giving scammers a heads up on the security checks (or the places they will show themselves) just helps scammers circumvent them.
As Brian notes, most (practically all) ad posters don't run afoul. Scammers are sloppy and often dumb. They usually repeat the same red flags. Likely when TUG follows up, they wallow away and don't persist. The fact that you have persisted helps to validate you in a way. So, you are just an unlucky (but tiny) poster that has to deal with it to help protect renters.
