    Man I thought my wife never forgets the crap I did wrong that one time 12 years ago..

    And real men don't keep harassing others online over being hurt that a transaction didn't happen.. I fail to see what damage this caused you? Did you miss out on fishing cause you needed this reel? Did you have to cancel a fishing trip? What hurt you sooooo bad that you were persistent on following him around to bash him? Please tell me it's something tangible (that means actually happened in case you pulled out the dictionary). If it wasn't then it's pure emotional hurt which again "real men" let it go and move on.. Don't just pick and choose quotes that real men do like keep their word..

    And please don't get this confused, I'm not attacking just wondering what really caused you to do all of this and ruin a perfectly legit post (you should apologize to Jason)..

    Jer Dog for president!! I think you and Trump would make for a very entertaining ticket [emoji4]...

    on a better note I bought 2 rods and 3 reels here on bd, 3 days before my trip. I was leery about one of the reels condition and the seller told me he'd let me check it out before buying. As per our agreement the seller dropped off the stuff with the capt. I got to check out the gear before purchasing and I paid the seller the balance owed with paypal that morning and it all went very smoothly.
    Thanks Rich!


    TL;DR: I think BD sellers need a feedback page. it would eliminate all the bs.

    More PayPal buying & selling tips:

    Always REQUIRE a seller to send you an invoice off the paypal-com website -- the invoice (with clear terms and conditions included) will be emailed to you directly from PayPal.

    This puts teeth in PayPal's ability to enforce the contract and its Buyer/Seller Protection plans -- you get your money back if the item is not as described.

    Watch out for accounts that have been taken over by fraudsters and ONLY SHIP TO THE BUYER'S "CONFIRMED ADDRESS" on the PayPal receipt.

    Sellers should also be very careful about delivery methods that legally prove receipt -- so a buyer can't say he didn't get the item...

    PayPal answers their phone (contact off their website) you do not need a PayPal account to have someone email you money -- but it makes sense a Seller has an established PayPal account and CONFIRMED ADDRESS.

    Never ship to unconfirmed address and only ship to the exact information provided on the PayPal document.


    POST EDIT:

    PAYPAL FRIENDS AND FAMILY FF IS NOT COVERED BY BUYER PROTECTION PLANS

    think twice before using paypal friends & family to buy and sell - THEN DON'T - require the seller to send you an actual INVOICE off the paypal-com website so you are covered in case it goes bad

    Simple -- have the seller post the item on ebay and you can "Buy it Now"..... with Ebay buyer protection.....then have them send you the link........

    Ya.... the seller pays Ebay for the privilege but at least you know you have options....
