had good trade with cameron@lake fork marina, product just new as he described shipping good and timely etc. happy.

and I'll say brando is a fine feller.

almost got a little dicey with one member i won't mention name unless you PM me. I was the buyer. Our deal was solidified totally FINALIZED after discussing product and price x 2-3 days, and I put check in the mail within 24 hours of our agreement, and the next day he sent me a message to hold check or he'd return it b/c he was going to sell to somebody else locally to avoid shipping it. Maybe they didn't show up to buy it idk, b/c he changed his mind back to sell it to me within a few hours before i even knew this was happening.., so the deal ended fine. Also this same item he said he had opwned for 6 months, but i found transaction record here where he just bought it 2 months ago. I don't know why he lied but i almost killed the deal right there. Didn't seem like an honest person and i'd stay away from him from now on. This wasn't a couple of lures either, it was >$500 transaction.
First, give thanks to God.

That's bad news hangitup. I had a couple of very good transactions buying some Cowboys tickets from johnnlucky. He's a good guy and the tickets are legit and very, very good seats.

Have bought some stuff and have always been happy with everything. Requested a cheese burger once and still waiting on it.

I have only had 1 problem. I won a contest to get crankbaits painted and sent them to the person. After a few months I made contact with the person a couple of times and now have not heard anything for 9 months.

Is there a process to have a mod contact the customer? I just want the crankbaits back. I let the person know this.

Out of dozens of deals thru 9 years I did not have any problems til this year. I wanted a TM and after a long time my pm FINALLY got answered and the deal was progressing.Sent a friend a check so he could give the guy cash. Then the guy says he sold it to another that day after he said deal was on with me.
Other bad deal was when offered a guy less than he was asking , he politely said no thanks and that was fine. Later he lowered his price to what I originally offered but he never responded to my pm s. A few weeks later he sold it for what I offered the 1st time.

I am not out any money but just felt bad because EVERYONE else on here is SO great. I have many friends thru some of the deals i had.

Bikeman is bad news. He is no longer on the forum, but it took me 4 months, the Parker Co Sheriffs Dept, and a certified letter to get my reel back.

I've never bought anything from anyone that wasn't a face to face transaction until this year. It was always hard for me to send someone money and trust them to ship me what they say they're going to... But I've had nothing but positive experinces on here. Here's a few people that I can remember from recent transactions... Oh and thanks mods for this sticky, it's nice to be able to try and research someone a little before buying from them!

People I've bought from that weren't FTF:

RngrMac ( I think that's how it was spelled, he's in Illinois)

FTF transactions:

I have sold and bought here a few times and have had no issues, seems like everyone is willing to meet up and is honest about what they have or want.

I've bought 2 times from people on this forum.
One face to face deal, the other, I sent a check and got the reels in just a few days.

I wouldn't have a problem trusting anyone on this forum.

I bought a gps/sonar from coryp for a good price. Paid through paypal. As the deal progressed, he offered to throw in the gimble bracket, transducer, and ram mount for and extra $20. He received the money. I only received the head unit. He doesn't answer my pm's.
