    Courtney1968 Possible SCAMMER BEWARE,DONT SEND CASH

    Ad #1477901, emailed for info. then called. talked up the sale. made the deal.needed frieght costs before shipping. he called me back the same day with fee info. agreed to the deal said I would pay COD.he said he would ship items and call me with tracking info.Items never showed up. his phone goes to voice mail, no email responce. I did not loose any money but he didn't handle this sale very well.If I had sent cash like he wanted I would be SOL. He has no record for feedback, so beware.

    I would never send anything out COD because the shipper has to pay up-front for the shipping costs, and if the buyer decides he don't want the merchandise, for WHATEVER REASON, the shipper pays for the trip back, too.
    He probably decided not to ship COD, but I agree, he should have let you know why he didn't follow through with the agreement.

    Shipping COD

    I also would'nt ship COD because of the problems mentioned in the above response-It also takes up to a month to get your money back-Buying online is risky at best,I've been burned several times-Theres really no perfect method to protect both seller & buyer when buying online-Too Bad theres so many frigging thieves out there!

    I agree,He probably decided not to ship COD or maybe he sold the item locally. But anyway he should have atleast let you know why,if he wasn't going to follow through with the agreement.I've bought,sold and traded all over the world and i always try to make my deals fair and easy for both parties involved.Alot of times it is tough to know who you are dealing with .I too have been burned a couple of times.One way to checkout a seller or buyer is to do a search and see if there is any feedback for them on any other websites or forums.I sold a part to someone a couple years ago and shipped it by Priority Mail but with no delivery confirmation.The guy started sending emails a couple of days later saying he hadn't received the part yet.After ten days of emails,I contacted the Post Office and was told there was nothing they could do without a delivery confirmation,So giving the guy the benifit of the doubt, I sent him another part at no cost.A few weeks later i saw posted on another forum that he had pulled this stunt several times before.
