RE: [z_scale] Big problem - Business 101
- I know it doesn't help now, but my rules for buying are fairly simple:
Use a credit card when you can - you can dispute the charge and get our
money back if you do not receive the goods. PayPal works just about as well.
Second choice is by check. Once they cash the check, the money is gone, but
you can stop it before they cash it.
Use air for overseas deliveries. In many cases the rates are not that much
higher (about $12), you get your packages in less than 10 days (even with
customs) and it is cheap mental insurance.
Check those ebay references! There are pro ebay guys out there who sell all
the time and have reputations to protect. Stay away from the smaller guys,
or at least have them provide at least a few references. Email is cheap.
Loss of $300 is not.
Now back to the Z scale subjects....

Not to be so blunt but..
Rule #1: Never send cash. EVER! I don't care if it's to your mother
who needs an operation. Lost mail = lost cash. The only time you use
cash is when you're buying a Big-Gulp at 7-11! Even if they get the
cash..."I'm sorry, do I know you?" !!!!!
Rule #2: READ RULE #1!
You've got to be more careful. At any rate, hope you get your
