exactly, and that's why we really didn't have a rule for it until recently because sending as F&F to people who weren't friends & family violated paypal's TOS as it is...

It feels like I've been a bit paranoid with online sales in different areas as of late. For here and other forums I really have no pause for concern as I've never been given any cause for concern, but I had a pair of headphones I was selling off in another forum and got an offer from a person for a certain amount that wasn't out of line, but what was unusual was him offering to send a prepaid shipping label. Paypal lists it as a scam as the person could change the address and then claim it was never delivered. From what one USPS clerk told me a buyer could do the same, but I don't think she knew her salt so to speak. I reported the fellow on that forum, but I think they didn't take any action on him. At least to ban him. The fellow was active primarily in the BST forum there, good feedback, but no way in hell am I going to trust that scenario. He can't get a label any cheaper than I can, and reeks too much of a scam. I didn't accept his offer.

The age old saying of caveat emptor (let the buyer beware) is always wise advice, but caveat venditor (let the seller beware) is good advice to keep in mind for those of us selling too.

I feel bad for the folks that got scammed. Sad
