    Please move if this is not the appropriate thread. Last week beachcamera had the E-pl1 for $474 which I missed. Now I have found a member of dpreview who got the cam but also has the ep1 so he wants to return it but though if someone wants to buy the cam he will sell it for the same price.

    How should I deal with it. I have never bought anything from a member. If anyone has any experience please do share, what steps, precaution I should take.

    Thanks

    First check out the member. Then definately use Paypal.
    I bought tons of stuff for many years and never had a problem.

    Paypal is easy. You have to set up an account.
    It takes a few days to verify you bank.
    It's safe and secure but you can still get ripped if ya have a bad seller.
    If in doubt, don't.
