Have just been reading through some of the posts about people being ripped off and was thinking about some of the systems on other forums to provide some kind of saftey

Two systems that seem to work is

1. members must have a minimum post count eg: 25 posts and a formal introduction post before the trading section becomes visable, most people that want to make a quick dollar wont bother

2. a small charge eg: $10 to be made via paypal etc before the section becomes visable

Or you can have both systems, i cant see scammers going through all the hassle

to new commers the forum would appear to have no trading section and is likley to deter people want to make quick $$$

Im happy to pay a fee to use the forsale section


Its just a thought in an effort to gain some protection for the genuine members

We can have a poll and let the good folks decide on the system ???

You almost need a third party middle man.

Joe buys part from John.
Joe and john send money and part to Jack
Jack sends out both when both items are received.

Soooooooooo true!



But if someone like Chilly or Jones charged a fee for a service like that for poeple who arent comfortable sending money,,,,or even if the money gets sent to a third party until the parts show up to buyer would be great.

There you go, thats what I was thinking.

We been going through about the same thing 4 wheeler racing.
Track promoters get sponcer companys to annie up products for the riders bikes, like for business addvertizment, well, promoter shows up with their 4 wheeler or 4 wheeler's & its got all the latest & greatest high quality race stuff on it.
Come end of the year banquet time, & the riders that have supported the series all year dont get $hit.
Seem's to be the same thing over & over, riders gitting screwed.

But here lately, since ol big daddys big in charge & keeping records of whats in & out, ol Jack skipping town aint got no where to hide if he side to skip.
