The people i've personally delt with on THIS forum have been pretty damm honest for total strangers. But isn't Paypal a form of escrow? I use that, but if you're going to be screwed i.e. damaged products, paypal won't do jack.

COD is a good idea, personally i have dealt with a lot of ppl on the board and about 95% of us are nice to deal with, just make sure to use credit card payment or anything that protect ur own right :thumbup: :thumbup:

i thought i can trust most members here too but after what happened to me this weekend i think i will have to go with all these other alternatives for payments. I have been told to use COD but becaseu my eagerness have blinded me. i saw it comoing but i doubted myslef. i have been told to use COD but being the nice guy that i am i still went ahead and did it western union. well this is a very expensive learning experience i have learned today.

That was energy-escrow.com, which is a fake service setup to confuse people w/ escrow.com.

Then you can check w/ the shipping company to find out whether the person has signed and picked up the item.

using a credit card on paypal does nothing for you. Paypal does not protect you and the cc company transaction is with paypal not the seller. Paypal offers no protection at all!

if you tell your credit card u were frauded and the item never came they will stop the payment.

Doing paypal or MO always pay half, then when u get the package pay the rest. This way the risk is not all on one side. Its tough though. Call the person a couple of times if necessary and get their full address, maybe even license number if its a big Dolla transaction.
