NOTICE FROM AD7RU

Post by ad7ru » Fri Dec 12, 2008 3:36 pm

I will no longer be making any deals,swaps or trades that is not done in person face to face. To much has happened in the past with shipping and misunderstandings and delays.

That's too bad. I have made hundreds of deals , never been burn't yet as far as buying or swapping equipment. I even request personal checks so the sender does not have to go out of their way and usually I ship first. I always do a little research first though. When in doubt , google them. There is no reason to be scared to do a transaction .

Trading in person puts a massive limit on how much you can actually achieve.

"Trading in person puts a massive limit on how much you can actually achieve". I am not sure exactly what you mean, but by trading in person, one can get a good, "feel", on what the other person is like. Example, does the person look you in the eye when talking about the equipment that he is selling or trading? Is the person nervous? Things that can't be picked up via e-mail, or by telephone. And, probably the most important, you can ask to try out the equipment before committing to buy or trade.

Most all of us are compassionate.

Al we all have problems but it is much easier to communicate than complain. Stop hiding and answer your emails. The woe is me attitude you seem to have doesn't go very far when you have received your part of a deal and suddenly have nothing but excuses to not finish your part. I hope you learn it is easier to be the good guy than a deadbeat. Still waiting for you to keep your word.

The way I read what N4ATS wrote is that "trading in person only" means that you limit yourself to your immediate area.

Too bad if the person who needs your trade lives 500 miles away... :(
