I always send photos if the tire kickers request them. I have no problem doing that... Yea, if I had seen a picture of the backside of the 509 - I would have been able to tell immediately that the connections were changed. In the future - I will ask for pictures. If you had bought it from me withou...

Well, FWIW - I bought a Argonaut 509 here. Yea, had a great picture of the front panel. My gut instinct was to ask for pictures all the way around the unit but heck, it was an Argonaut 509 and the description just said how great it was. Well, I received the puppy and all the connections on the back...

Just sold a Drake R8A here on QTH based on the description. I have bought many items the same way . What a relief, the buyer did not need a photo to realize what a Drake R8A looks like . By his feedback it seems he is quite satisfied that my description was indeed accurate.Then again , anything I se...

Re: WAY OVERRATED

[quote="K9XR"]I think Pictures are WAAYY Over-rated. I also think that some of the usual "tire kickers" around here must collect them. [quote] WOW ! And I thought it was just me.. I HATE having to take photos. In fact not taking photos is a strong incentive for me to list here rather than ebay. Neve...

I too have dealt with Martyn..as a seller. He paid promptly and offered positive feedback for the goods received.

What I said was correct . In the event of a dispute ; Paypal places a HOLD on the funds . You are wrong, the funds are on HOLD but NOT in the buyer's account. The buyer has no access to those funds .The seller may also have access denied . That is why the funds are said to be on HOLD ! In some cases...

But I do understand. I read you like a book at your first posting. Your post started with myopic whining regarding a claim that you had been scammed. You are no longer using Paypal. Got it. Others have chimed in with other opinions that may not be in line with yours..Fair Game . That is what PUBLIC ...

Also, if these jokers that keep advertising about send payment under the "Personal Tab" all of the time, how long do you think it will take PayPal to catch on and create a loophole, or change there policy under that personal tab? It used to be that you could only send "personal" payments from your ...

Sounds fair but good luck.

The fellow in this case didn't have that option and it looks like he doesn't have the whole package yet either.

If you buy a rig here the same thing, don't like it ? Bring it back. In tact of course. I want you happy.

. I'd give him the benefit of the doubt. But that's me. YMMV. VWPBL(STn). Probably the same here, but only after finding out that he indeed sent the filters along as listed. However, I am not taking unsubstantiated explanations as a given fact. Especially since there may already have been the start...

The difference is most of us were commenting on the situation , that is what the forum is about.

More often the problem is the other way around; Most of the scamming is commited by sellers. Feedback is not enough insurance to trust money orders (Scampal) to protect you.
Many a ham here on QTH has gone rogue seller after receiving a few good feedback ratings.
