posticon Be very careful


When buying or selling on here or other sites.

I have recently been ripped off by buying from another radio web site. Its a fine site, no names and no pack drill, but they recently changed they're policy on the for sale part of the forum, which has made it easier for crooks and rip off merchants to ply their trade.

Please go by other members posts and history on here or if you know them

Using paypal is good but when paying "as a gift" remember this can never be later disputed, you will be gifting money to someone you dont necessarily know for something you haven't seen and may never recieve.

Please, please, please be aware that radio equipment is desirable and expensive to us enthusiats which, make it easy for gits to rip us off emoticon

Its happin to me in the pass, Just be carefull, I know its hard when you see the radio you want, and you have saved the money to buy it. But some assholes will take that money and wont give a !@#$ about your hard earned cash, Ive seen birthdays and chrismas go down the pan, because of rip offs.

Re: Be very careful


this is why i use ebay, i know people slag it off but you can get bargains on there if you keep your eyes open and your covered if paying with paypal. Maybe we should have a feedback section on the forums where sellers can have feedback left by other users who have bought from them. The karma points could work to a degree but somewhere people can read feedback on members who have sold stuff before? Paypal as a gift is ok if its someone you know and if there a good friend they will pay the fee's emoticon BUT i wouldnt pay a stranger as gift for anything of value, its nice to feel covered by paypal
