    Shawn Gallant from Ontario wants to sell me two freaks for a very good deal (too good) of course he wants me to pay with a money order. He says he's done lots of business so I thought i'd check on here.

    cheers

    **sorry posted this in the wrong place, can it be moved?**

    like i said the deal sounded too good to be true... any advice on best method of payment in case of fraud? I know from experience you're screwed with a money order. With paypal if you do a deal and pay but never get the bat(s) do you have any recourse?

    Paypal works from what i hear.. I just was paid to today for a receipt through interact online banking it was neat to do. so if you both have online banking ti might be away to do it as well.

    From what I read Paypal insurance only kicks in if you did the transaction through eBay.

    Do

    paypal and use your credit card... Your credit card should protect you if it is worth its weight. Call your bank first. USE UPS COD..

    Hope this helps. If not, WALK away from the deal...

    I suggest that you use Overdafence's services....costs a little more, but he will hang onto your money order or what ever type of payment until the bat arrives to him, and then he mails the bat and the payment out from there. He is a VERY trusted board member, and that would keep your money safe...you may still lose money due to him having to mail you the money back, but that is better than losing the whole amount!!!

    Hope that helps!

    and i imagine that if i use my visa and pay paypal then paypal pays this guy. Visa won't cover me because paypal lived up to their end of the bargan...... You can't win.
