Re: listing abuse?

That is the correct answer, just add an ignore filter, and then ignore those folks. A really novel idea might be to create an ignore filter, that asks why, then sets the ignore flag, and emails the person saying you have been ignored for this reason by a fellow Amateur Operator.

Re: Tire Kickers

Here's the deal... When you are selling something, be prepared to deal with inquiries from people... Finally, someone that seems sane here... Sellers, if you are selling something, you are going to get people who want more photos, you are going to get people who want more info, and you are going to...

Re: Unable to contact classified sellers

I understand the scammer problem, but scammers do not SEND money via pay pal or postal money orders, they only take money. The buyer sends you a small percentage of what you are asking and has a friend send you the rest. The friend later files a "never got the stuff" claim and you can not prove you...

Re: Postal money orders are the way to go

Paypal is without a doubt the way to go... If I see a seller whining about Paypal, I move on... I have no idea if the seller is a good seller or a bad seller, or if the seller just likes to whine at the fees involved, nor do I care... I move on and only buy from PayPal vendors. I have had two issues...

Great person-- Dealing with AD4C, Hector...

Hi, I thought I'd share my experience with AD4C here. What a wonderful person to deal with! My item arrived quickly, was well packed, and in better condition than described... There was a balun which Hector forgot to include with the tuner so he sent it along separately via USPS Priority mail. The b...

AD4C - Hector Good trader...

Just a short note to say thanks to Hector, AD4C, for the AT2KD tuner! It arrived in short order, was packed well, very well, and works like a champ... It was exactly as described, actually a bit better! Hector is a fine person to deal with in my book! He reminds me of the old time hams, that you cou...

Re: Bank Transfer

Hi Chris,
Could you post the result of this episode when you get it resolved, one way or the other please? I am curious what happens here... I use Paypal for all transactions, so bank transfers are a blind spot for me.

Re: Use PayPal or Don't Sell

PayPal adds no security to any transaction. PayPal does add a middleman who takes a cut and keeps your money until they find it convenient to release it to you. PayPal has used some pretty rancid tactics in shutting out firearms and firearms accessories manufacturers and dealers including putting h...

Re: Use PayPal or Don't Sell

I strongly disagree. PayPal would have screwed me twice but I reversed their charges on my credit card. One seller sent me the WRONG ITEM. To get my $4.95 back, I'd have to spend $7.95 for postage back ON TOP OF $7.85 I paid for postage to me. Another seller wasn't shipping a badly needed household...
