One of two things is going to happen. Either we're going to go to this escrow service.. and Shane and I discussed this this morning or the staff is going to completely wash its hands with the classifieds and it will be "Use at your own risk!" I dont have time to mediate these disputes. Ive tried OVER and OVER and OVER again to put safeguards in place and people just complain. No one wants them until they get ripped off then its "Wah! Help me!" The escrow service does a couple of things. It protects the buyer and seller from getting ripped off and it provides an avenue of mediation if either party is dissatisfied. This is what these guys do full time. Frankly I think its a small price to pay for that kind of coverage. Here's a link once again. Im not overly enthusiastic with how the system integrates with the forum but Ive talked to them about a different way to do it here. http://www.styckyd.com/search For those people that buy and sell in the parts section and pay a fee, this will not impact you. You're established and I dont consider that private sales. There will be a dedicated forum for that.
