Simple really, i have crimbo cash sat waiting to purchase.
But would you trust this seller?, even with the protection from paypal it looks too "set up" to me.

  • Doesn't sell much cycling stuff does he?

    If it looks too good to be true then it generally is - how much below RRP is this?
  • Rod, its about £175 cheaper than anywhere i can find. What concerns me most is memeber since Nov 2010, and twenty transactions mostly in the range of a pound or two only...

    Hence my reservations.
  • Can you pick up in person? If not then I'd steer clear. Lot of money to lose for a £175 saving and a load of hassle if it does go wrong.
  • Thought of that, but even if vendor agrees he's in Norwich and im down in the holyland (Bristol).

    Gonna pass this by i think!
  • Probably a wise move - I've not heard great things about paypal refunds and it is a lot of cash to potentially lose to a user that hasn't got a long history. Fair enough everyone starts as a new user at one time but I guess the fraudsters have spoiled it for the genuine sellers.

    You can ask if you can collect in person anyway (even if in reality you can't) just to gauge reaction - if they're dodgy they'll likely ignore the request or spin a yarn about having just moved blah blah blah.

    I had a look at his other auction listing as I need mechs shifters and brakes but decided with the history and no real pictures it's not worth it.
