do COD.. cash on devliery, you pay when the stuff arrives, then the post office will send the seller the money order...

this is a way to protect the buyer

like Kevin said, do COD, or you can use an escrow service, safe for buyers and sellers...safest way in my opinion.

is it the classified section on this board? who is the seller and what is he/she selling? perhaps we can give u some insight to their reputation.

I bought something from some guy on the board

and I just ended up picking it up from the guy. Also if you want you can do the COD thing or even ask the board members about the seller to see if they know him or at least of him.

i have bought 2 things from the for sale forum on the board, both were shipped without problems, but the COD idea sounds like the safest way
