You can't be certain of anything you're buying sight unseen over the internet, and we can't offer you any kind of protection. If you get blatantly ripped off by a member here their stay here will be short. We don't like scammers around these forums. People buy lots of things online nowdays, and we do so without any guarantee.

Caveat emptor

Look at the person's history on the site. See if he has sold stuff before. How long has he been around? Sometimes a google search will answer a lot of questions about a person.

As said if someone has been on the site for years, they are probably not going to screw you. :)

Might help to say what you want to buy... maybe someone bought one and can give some feedback to you...or show you a safe place to buy the same thing.

Pay using Paypal. Have the funding for Paypal hooked up your credit card. If the items don't show up, have your CC reverse the charges. It is a guarantee most cards have ie: Visa. NEVER have Paypal funded by cash ie; bank acct. Works lika a charm.
