I think we are already doing as best we can with the tools we have to hand, erm.
Punting can be a lonely business and it can be a godsend finding somewhere to share tips and tactics. As smiths says it's about research and not thinking with your dick. Bad providers of all sorts know these weaknesses and the fact that if you are fucked over you are unlikely to do much about it.
We are here for all Punters, not regional and there are thousands of Pro$$ies out there constantly changing names, location, profiles and so on. Use Google on phone numbers and variations, AW ID and names as these can throw up useful stuff and save money and time.
As we attract more members, despite the efforts of the anti- punter brigades, we will accumulate more and more information. It may not always be easy to find but it could be there.
As for Adultwork it's pretty clear they don't do anywhere near enough to root out Scams. I've reported thousands in the last year, posting a percentage here for information etc but it's just the tip of the iceberg.
