How do you guys go about trades on the Buy N Sell forum with members that don't know each other? Is there an acceptable method for trades? Myself and a forum member were going to trade some items and cash and when I inquired as to how might we do this trade, the member replied I should send the items and payment, he would then inspect and send his item.......I declined as I see myself at 100% risk yet the other member has zero risk! .....how does that sound like a fair or even trade? When I informed him of my reluctance, he replied he has great feedback via eBay, this forum and FredMiranda which I haven't confirmed but am not denying, but why must I take the initiative and send my items while he waits then sends his? I won't name him as I don't wish him any negativity and don't think he's trying to scam but why must 1 party wait til the other is satisfied while one just sits and waits for approval? What is the common practice for trading? Terms?
