My guess here is, that since the buyer filed his dispute with the Credit Card company, and got resolution, the credit card company then went after PayPal, to get their money back, and subsequently now PayPal wants to get their money back, by going after the seller. Had the buyer simply gone to PayPa...

WHOA, there, folks!

Tossing out a man's name, as being potentially associated with a fraud, is opening yourselves up to some liability. I'd be cautious about mentioning Joe's name and call sign, until more is KNOWN. I have dealt with Joe, and had QSO with him on air, on a few occasions. I found him to be a VERY honest,...

As a frequent seller and buyer, I have found that the Postal Service, while usually doing a good job of delivering parcels, has a tracking system, which leaves a lot to be desired. That makes me wonder if this transaction might actually ...

W7KSG, another ham to help me.

I made a deal with J, for a part I needed for my 75A-4 restoration project. He was reasonably priced, shipped fast, and amicable to deal with. I recommend him, to anyone looking to buy from, or sell to, him.
A real credit to the hobby.

Not once did he complain about me pestering him with seemingly dumb questions, and his advice was the best. My Gold Dust Tw...

It is not like the ads are not available to all sides.

I have only taken one radio to JOhn, for work, but he was fast, efficient and VERY fair in his price. Several of the folks I know in this area will only go to John, for work on their radios, and I understand why. He is very competent, fast and friendly. Thanks John, for a job well done on my TM-255A.
