Moved this to FS/FT as it's useful for other members to see here.

Probably not at this point. I think this happened months ago and I offered to help mediate it but I never heard back from you.

As always, buying over the forums is risky so you have to use very wary thinking or buy from members you know and trust. If it's a high value item I recommend using escrow.com or a similar established escrow service.

I used to do loads of buying and selling in member forums like this and never got seriously burnt. Remember if it's too good to be true it is. Follow your gut, but also get as much backup as you can, such as information of address/telephone number, real name etc. Also send items insured and with tracking so you both know if an item has arrived. I also recommend using PayPal on transactions with a credit card funding so you have double recourse (once to PayPal and once to your cc company).

Overall it's a great way to make friends and get good deals but you do have to be cynical and wary.

BTW there is a fantastic vigilante group in the States that hunt down "trolls" (i.e. people who make fraudulent trades). They have lots of good advice for trading over the net that is applicable to the UK although I don't think they operate here. I knew them when they first started and they're still doing excellent work, all for free and just because they care.

Also, one other note. I highly recommend that people use [url]www.heatware.com[/url] to establish an online trading reputation. Again, this is North American site, but it can be used anywhere in the world. It provides a third party place to leave evaluations on person to person trades. It's somewhat like eBay feedback except more accurate, less fraudulent and can be used for any FS/FT forum.

This way when you go to enter a trade with someone you can check their heatware rating and see if they are trustworthy or if they have ripped off people in the past.

If there is interest from members here I can ask to have HUKD added to their site list although you can use it now even without HUKD specifically added.
