    I started that kind of Sale Feedback thread yesterday:

    Thread stuck, but again, whether it works or not will depend on whether enough people participate, and for most occasional/infrequent sellers, buyers will have to rely on other information, like general forum reputation based on how long they've been around and how active they are on the forum.

    Great thanks David and Summerbee.

    Have at it folks, remember let's keep the below thread banter free and without drama so Sean, David and the other mods don't need to waste their valuable time. Give it a spin folks:

    in fact in the site I forementioned it's mandatory after any transaction as extablished by the rules of that market...

    I just got an email from the guy. He sent me pictures for the wrong Kirk l-bracket. I found the original images on Gumtree. What a plonker. I told him where to go.

    Hope you sent him a map too, just in case he misses his road to nowhere...

    Yeah, same adioman guy sent me a message too! For Photoshop 2, not something everybody around here has lying in their closets. I ignored it because I had a hunch that it was fishy. Glad I got confirmation now, so my conscience can rest. Agree with Ghostman, what a plonker. But then, these jerks are just everywhere.

    On the subject of bank transfers, they are not often used for private transactions in the UK, except perhaps with people you know well. One of the problems is that you need to divulge essential details about your bank account number, sort code etc, which are the very items of information that scammers are after to clean your account out (eg the folk in Nigeria etc). For that reason I've never accepted them on the various sites where I've sold items. Despite their faults, using people like PayPal, Google etc is safer.

    It's totally normal in Switzerland to do bank transfers to move money to another person, I often pay for things this way. I also transfer money to UK accounts doing this but you no longer need to use account numbers & sort codes. All you need is the name & IBAN number for the person & off you go. It's really quite safe this way.
