Sadly if someone wants to screw you, there is nothing we, or anyone can do about it. Buyer beware as always.
I don't think you would be so objective if it were you that had been stung, your attitude is no use.
This forum should be pro-active in taking measures to deal with con men/rip off merchants, whatever. It should not adopt a 'if you get screwed, tough attitude'
I may be wrong but it seems this kind of thing is not unusual on here.
This is common sense, no?
Bob. I think you will find that when your anger is calmed, there is very little that is possible and workable for one of the most active trading boards for retro goods.
I have been stung before. Now I am more careful. Not sure I appreciate your statement regarding my attitude.
We are proactive. We ban. We follow up complaints. We instigated the feedback forum. But we are not responsible for your actions.
You are also wrong - this kind of trading is unusual on here. There have been tens of thousands of sales. I think this is the third case of a significant issue.
Frankly, 32 posts down and becoming abusive is hardly appealing to my good nature or contributing positively to the site.
