I think ive been stung on UKHD

My first trade on UKHD hasn't gone that well
I sold a Xbox Sky Player Card to this member
http://www.hotukdeals.com/for-sale-trade/wanted-sky-player-code/757992/#post9395802

Because of my lack of feedback I was told the normal thing was to send item first & the buyer pays you once they get the item.
So I emailed the code & see the buyer has been suspended :-(

Ive tried all day to contact them but Ive had no response
Dont get me wrong its only £4 so it's not the end of the world but it has put me in a position to think do I take part in any future trade/sales on UKHD?

Once bitten twice shy

Ive contacted support but dont know what they can do

Any advice guys

If the buyer has been suspended, then they'll be back after the suspension is up. In the meantime, they wont be able to get on the site or access their PMs, so hold out until they return before getting too worried.

It is the norm for new members to send first before payment, although I would've hesitated with that particular buyer because although he has 11 positive, he's got 2 negative already- which would ring alarm bells for me. That said, he will hopefully make payment when he returns from his suspension. I'm presuming you didn't, but if you followed the rules and got an outside contact number for him (phone number/e-mail address), then you could obviously contact him outside of the site to arrange payment.

@localboy - Yeah I did & yes it did make me think but then again Im from the world of Ebay where people will leave negative feedback at the drop of a hat or because of buyers remorse.

As I said it's only £4 so it's not the end of the world more the principle of it but I'll have to hold out & see what happends

I'm more bothered about what future transactions will be like

to be fair its a free service they offer on here & there are rules & regs in place to hopefully stop scammers.

Surely the FS forums aren't worth all the hassle,so many scammers.

Should close it.
