Before you take part in a purchase or sale, check the feedback section of the buyer or seller's profile to see feedback from previous experiences with that user. Member profile>Feedback Stats. If a user doesn't have much feedback, proceed at your own risk. If you do complete a purchase, do everyone else a favor and add your own feedback for that user which is also done from the user's profile.

I’ve seen on several forums where accounts are getting hacked as well. They look for members with a good reputation and post items under their names.

    This happened with a moderator account recently. This is why calling people, getting copies of up to date drivers license, and asking for photos with the screen name of the seller and date in the photo are other good items to insure a solid transaction.

    Not to over simplify things, but would dramatically upping the password length and feature requirements help more?

    Yes. It will deter a lot of attempting hackers but also being careful with what you click online, especially email, and keeping your passwords unpredictable throughout any of your online accounts (don't use same passwords for each of your accounts) would be just as important.

    However, it is most important to have "Two-step verification" enabled from your "Password and security" section in "Your account." Doing so will have the most effective protection, especially from those that may successfully enter with the correct password. They'd have to get a temporary code from you to log in at that point.
