Some excellent buyer beware suggestions posted here. My question/suggestion is slightly different though.
Is there a trusted member nearby the seller that might physically inspect and report?
If a buyer is already scammed,what serious recourse is available to us ?? Law enforcement,FBI…..? They all have much higher priorities it would seem. Not trying to be negative,just asking.
I have found if dealing with sketchy retailers of certain products,going to the manufacturer will sometimes yield results as they spend a lot of $$$ on their branding and image.
Due to the scum/scam level that started this thread, in extreme cases I have followed Joes’ suggestions in one form or another. Without consequences for them,there is no incentive to stop their bad behavior.
