Be careful once again- I replied to three ads and ALL three were looking for WU money orders ONLY- 2 had predesigned forms to fill out for shipping-
the callsigns were legitimate although one when googled had a plethora of scam alerts
Its getting more difficult to make a purchase. Seasoned vets wont fall prey but if youre reasonably new to horsetrading- just a friendly warning- do your homework before sending funds and I would AVOID AT ALL COSTS any sale that ONLY takes a WU ( Western Union) for payment. Its MOST TIMES a heads -up that youere not going to see your item
