So many scams and crooks on the internet ...

Post by n5wrx » Fri Oct 07, 2011 2:32 pm

With so many scammers on the internet today it is a wonder anyone would risk their money buying something sight unseen from a voice on the telephone.

Paypal helps provide some protection but you are still out the time it takes to recover the money.
Anyone that says "send it as a gift" kills the deal with me.
Just another scam that strips away all the Paypal protection.

To bad things are this way ... AND ... it will only get worse as our economy tanks.

Not trying to sound disresectful of overseas buyers or sellers but in my experiance to be safe just stay away from them on forums as I see nothing but bad news, that is my policy here.

I am the Radio-mart who has over 17,000 positive feedbacks and a few complaints like any business

No other ham radio company on eBay has that volume of positive feedbacks and of course with that comes some complaints, none that have not already been addressed.

If you know of anyone who has a complaint against me please let them get in touch with me so I can offer a resolution.

This post was not started as a knocking posy or is it going to turn in to one again?

W3WN do you have any comments against me?

Martyn: The simple question was asked if you were the same person that there had been complaints about. The simple answer is "yes." That does not address whether or not there is any validity in any of those complaints; it simply answers the question.

Surely you're not going to get on MY case for answering a simple question...
