Just to let you know, I strongly disagree with you about this. When someone has a track record of deceit and outright dishonesty going back at least 10 years is enough "strong evidence" for me. What if you found out a employee had a record of theft and drug use at his last 10 jobs ? Would you say t...

Re: KE6DCA issue Dentron MLA-2500B

After arraigning shipping I sent him $660 in the form of a US Postal MO. I sent the MO via US Express mail. If someone says they 'Only accept PO money order', how do you get your money back if it is a scam? If you paid for the MO with a credit card, can you dispute the charge and get a refund? If y...

Does anyone ever get busted for scamming?

Do any of these rip-off crooks ever get busted for stealing money on here? I see lots of postings where someone has bought something and never paid. Lots of negative feedback and grumbling and complaing, but that is as far as it goes. If I didn't give a rip about my reputation, I could make a lot of...

I usually look at the 'Replies' list. If there aren't any, it is usually positive.

If there are a whole bunch of replies, it is usually negative. Most of the replies are left by the same people, whether they bought something from the seller or not. 73

Re: WAY OVERRATED

I think Pictures are WAAYY Over-rated. I also think that some of the usual "tire kickers" around here must collect them. Yes and no. If there any flaws in the equipment you are selling, showing them in a picture can save a lot of grief later. Someone can't complain there is a scratch on the display...

Re: RADIOGEARPRO.COM ... "pro" is a real misnomer.

My experience was NOT a "good" one....:evil:

Bought an HT antenna that made "gain" claims it didn't come close to.
Gain over what?

Every antenna has 'gain' over something.

Let me add that my Russian ham friend has never asked me to make a fraudulent claim on a custom form. He's only stressed that I should correctly specify that the equipment is used, because that greatly reduces the duty that he has to pay on his end. When I was doing a lot of eBay, I found out that ...

The survey doesn't stipulate that you had to buy from him. Maybe They DID read the feedback and have developed their opinion from that? BTW most of the bad feedback on the net is from Ebay deals.
