    I believe this why the Mods enforce the "no Gift" rule . The 'Purchase' option on Paypal offers some degree of protection for the buyer that the 'Gift' option does not.

    My transactions have been good on this forum and others. One minor problem with a zipper on a piece of gear but after a lil' Google-Fu I was able to fix it easily. I asked the seller and he said he'd never had any problems so I chose to give benefit of the doubt. I have bought since and will again, if my wife and wallet allow !

    Mr. Tattoo, congrats on the increase in your Karma quoitient.

    I too did the search thing and found the For Sale thread in question. Perhaps I'm reading it wrong, but in the thread, he doesn't say its from HG, he says it the same size as one. Although if he told the OP that it was a HG UQ in a private message, the mods can easily find that out and take care of the user in question. Not a good experience in any case, although I too am glad that the mods enforce the "No Gift" PP option.

    Yes, that is a large part of the reasoning.

    Luckily, these occurrences are the exception around here, not the rule. We'd all like to be able to say transactions here are safe 100%, but that simply isn't realistic. That's why we have all those rules and guidelines for the Marketplace; to try and limit these bad transactions. Still, they happen on occasion.
    Trust nobody!

    lilricky your reading is just fine ..It was told to me in a PM .....And to anyone that reads this please don't let this discourage you from purchasing from other members this is just a small ripple in a rather large glassy pond. There is a good chance that he would have refunded my $ but it was my choice not to pursue a refund. My whole point to this thread was to make people think before they try and misrepresent an Item they are selling. I sell gear on here and when I do I make sure they know exactly what they are getting.

    You have an amazing attitude towards this. This is the reason why I feel comfortable buying and selling gear here. I too have had nothing but good experiences both as a seller and buyer.

    I like FS ads that have detailed pictures of the product personally. I always have photos on my FS ads so everyone who views them know exactly what they're planning on buying.

    that stinks man.... but at least your not letting it bring you down
    i been buying and selling for years here and i can say it's rare to have this happen .. i'm sure it happens more than we as reg members know but from what i know of ,it's a rare thing.
    Knowing the mods like i do... i don't think we will have any problems for the said seller of the item
    they are pretty quick to fix problems ... that why we love them so much
    ... makes my heart warm

I am a donating member but I consider myself a guest on the forums and do not want to disrespect this site with negativity so i figure brush it off go to work tomorrow focus on my work and make some more $$ and get the real thing may take a little longer but it will be worth it.
