Bait and switch? Hard to say

I don't think it's incumbent upon anyone to carry enough items to respond to every buyer. When you sell out, you sell out. To be able to say that it was bait and switch without being subject to libel, you would have to prove that it was Marc's intent to never have the advertised item and only to lur...

It's not about being uncharitable!

The people who are complaining that this post indicates a proclivity against charity are wrong. The problem is that the internet is awash with scam artists, just waiting to deposit millions into your bank account or overpay for items with bad cheques (so you send the refund before you realize the ch...

It's clear from the text below that this is likely autogenerated by a spambot somewhere trolling for living, breathing victims. Note the bad grammar, unlikely sentence structure AND how there is no specific reference to your wanted item. If it had really come from someone with an actual Cushcraft to...

W4TL - good guy report

Bought an auto tuner from Terry. Shipped when said, arrived when promised, in the condition that was promised (better, even). Recommended.

I'm not so quick to side against K7VS

Seems that Van isn't necessarily being unreasonable in wondering if he had a committed buyer or just a tire-kicker. Also, I am not sure why some of the most vitriolic posters here assumed, absent any facts, that K7VS received more money locally than the distant ham would have sent. There's been no i...

E-mail scams

N4ATS raises a good flag. Here are some foolproof ways to avoid getting ripped off. The thread referred to eBay, so I will here, but insert anything instead of eBay and the advice is the same. 1. If you did not bid for an item on eBay, you cannot have won the auction. Know your bids. 2. If you do no...

W4AJF (ex KG4ZCL) - Adam Farber, another good guy

This is my second time selling to Adam. He is fair and honest. When he tells you he's sent his payment, he has. If you send him items that are as described, he's a happy camper. I'd deal with him again. :D

W5KG - A good guy

Don pays promptly and if items received are as described, accepts them that way. A good buyer. :D
