I cant stress enough guys/ladies, that anything over 20 bucks you really shouldnt do outside of paypal or a similar service. I know it can be tempting to buy something but is it worth it if you get ripped off?

I'm sorry to hear that, too. I personally have probably traded 50 or 60 times here and on other toy boards, and I have yet to be burned. I've also bought and sold hundreds of things on eBay, and have only had two bad deals. . .one where a guy didn't pay, and one where the figures were simply in worse shape than the guy led on.
I think part of the reason that I've had such "luck" is that, similar to what others have said, I'm always extremely cautious. I only deal with people with good feedback, I always use and typically encourage delivery confirmation in my dealings, and I always use Paypal unless it's not for much, and if the other guy seems legit. . .of course, statistically, if you trade a lot, the chances are that you will get burned at some point are pretty high.

i only pay with paypal, via my credit card so i can always get my money back if someone screws me. and i dont like 'trading' i say buy only what you want and be done with it. it seems like to much of a hassel to trade to me. im very sorry to hear you got screwed over, and that you want to quit collecting now.
i think we should set up something and those of us here on the tank all chip in a few dollars and get him a wedding present of a gold pdd! can we get a mod to do it? it would make everyone feal safer i think. or if someone has a better idea lets hear it. lets promote hisstanks community and show we care and set this right!
and to everyone. please dont base opinions of christians on one person who is appearently a douche scammer. thanks.

I'm not going to mention his name, but I once bought a bunch of carded Joe's from a fairly well known member of these boards. He told me they were all in C-9+ condition or better. When I finally recieved the figures, most of them looked as though a dog had gotten ahold of them. The guy is pretty popular here, so I won't say who he is, but I personally have zero respect and no trust whatsoever for this individual.
Check out my 1980's vintage toy room. It's full of rare and high grade toys from the greatest decade ever.

It totally sucks when you get taken for a ride, especially in a community like this. I've gotten taken on ebay a few times, and it sucks. Hopefully you will have much better deals from here on out.

I got taken for a $72.50 ride by Michael Smalley A.K.A. Nemesis Prime on TFW2005. I still have to call Visa and see if I'm covered. Paypal didn't come through for me on the refund as they can't give you what they can't collect from the seller.
Because of this burn, I hesitated before sending *faceless master* a money order for a deal we were going to do. I'm glad I didn't send the money.
Fridge, I'm sorry to hear that things haven't come through for you. Especially given that it was a wedding gift. Hopefully karma will get this dude back, or even better, he'll come through and be on the up-and-up and get you your Gold PDD. Hope it all works out dude.

I recieved a refund in the mail today from Faceless Master. He did make things right and I appreciate that.

I went out on a limb yesterday with The Amazing Mutato. I sent him 100.00 paypal for 3 moc snake eyes with timber and 1 moc flint. The price was right for me. I am just praying that he comes through. He said he would send dc so I feel reasonable confidant he'll delivery. Anyone care to make me feel better about the deal?
