• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.

Some things that should throw a flag:

Sellers requesting funds without buyer protection

Sellers wanting to take a convo off-site right away


New users

Don't be afraid to alert a moderator if you smell something fishy. They monitor the action here, know most of the regulars, and will either escalate the situation or calm your nerves.

I'm starting to feel better about being so paranoid. If anything seems the least bit weird, I just nope out. Usually, if the price isn't in the ad, I don't bother asking. That might be why I've only had one transaction here in thirteen years, but it was one really good transaction!
Ah well I guess there are absolutely no limits for some people. Lesson learned the hard way. Donald Holden will get his due

Bad thing about this guy is he is really in the business and deals with chainsaws a lot. I talked to the guy for several days and he knows a lot about the business
