Are there measures I can take to protect myself in ensuring a potential transaction is legitimate or would you say this is just too much of a red flag? Of course I do not want to offend anyone, especially if this is an honest, helpful person that frequents the forum and has just not previously had a reason to formally register. That said, I did see another member post a warning message in the classifieds recently about a transaction they had been burned on (buyer sent payment, "seller" cut off communication, buyer never received their item) so I want to be smart.
Any advice is appreciated.
IMO trust your gut on something like that. Based on my experience someone contacting on behalf of someone does indeed have giant red flags! I think, in short order, you’ll find a opportunity that won’t feel so suspect.
