Does anyone know how to report members who post fake prices? I am talking about $3.80 when it's actually $3.49. I have warned the NEW member on their white board but no response and still posting fake prices.

Well Ron it does seem unusual that a long time active member like yourself doesn't know how to PM someone. I meant no harm. Just a little befuddled.

Sorry Ron, no offense meant. I really was just expressing amazement that you did not seem to know about the PM system for contacting the Mods about fake prices (or any other site issue). I report fake prices 3 or 4 times a week; it’s a pretty routine problem, sadly.

My gosh jrsva & scoutmaster. Yes I've been a member for almost 10 yrs. Yes I see fake post from time to time, but when its every day and a station I drive by daily, it mad me made. Yes this is the first time I've attempted to report someone for any reason. Give me a break guys, I am just trying to help the website show real prices.

People don't like Sam's Club so they DELIBERATELY report incorrect prices?

Wow!

Ron, you’ve been a member for almost ten years and do not know about the PM system? And this is the first time you’ve been faced with phony prices?? Amazing! The Mods ask us NOT to use the whiteboards for this purpose but to report directly to them as Max points out. Report the date and time of the false price post along with the member’s screen name and the station name and address or station ID number. Also, enter the correct price if you know it or, if not, delete the false price (enter a price of 0).

At the bottom of the website page follow Contact Us > Leave Feedback > Email Category = Incorrect Pricing.
In the "Type your message here" box write your complaint. And be specific about which station(s) by including the station id number and the member name.
