I don't have much feedback here, and he wants me to ship first. Says he's sold lots of stuff on this forum, but the iTrade module seems to be broken. Can anyone vouch for having dealt with him successfully?

If you don't trust him, don't trust anyone on HWC, he knows almost every moderator here and buys/sells about as much if not more then anyone on HWC. Also will leave you i trader rating when it is repaired. It is nothing personal, just like me, he see's the trader rating/very low post count and gets leery, but without question he is super trustworthy.

I have about 20 positive feedback here with 100%, too bad it doesn't show on the site these days. :\ Trying to be extra cautious now, ever since that "shane_p incident" if you guys remember that....

I'll tell you in a couple of days when my cooler arrives if SlickEnuf4U is trustworthy, too. I'm sure he is, but I can understand why people would be hesitant on the internet.

BigFOIG is a standup guy....BUT even if he was family....no payment == no shipment. ALWAYS get paid first....and paypal does NOT count. Then and only then ship the parts. What happens if he changes his mind? Best case scenario...you are out the cost of shipping it to him AND back to you...and thats best case scenario. :(

If he cant pay right away...get a downpayment to hold the item until he CAN pay.

YMMV but it has kept me from being burned for many...many years now.

This is the best advise I can imagine. Even when dealing with peeps like me (Staff).

Always get paid first.

Honestly, if the person doesn't have a couple hundred posts and some rep on the forum, I NEVER send first. I think it is bad advise telling him to get the money first, and frankly I would be offended if I were a member here for years and staff is saying "ya get him to pay first"
