Reply To: SCAMMER ALERT !!!!!!! BY SEASONFIRE
I hate that this happened to you. I don’t know how to protect yourself completely. However, I’m a big fan of a certain credit card that a lot of retailers don’t like (higher fees). If they don’t take it, I find another place to do business.
I usually provide some information about myself that the buyer or seller can check out. I then ask them for the same.
I’ve made nearly 200 archery transactions over the years. Never been burned. So far not on an air rifle either.
When buying here I look up their name/handle and do a search for their posts. Not a guarantee that someone with almost no posts is to be avoided, but someone that is regular with posts is as good as gold.
