For the most part, our Armory section's sales go smoothly. Occasionally issues arise that require special attention.
We've always required up to date pics for all sales threads. I can't stress enough that both buyers and sellers hold some responsibility in assuring the sale goes smoothly.
Sellers are required to fully disclose any imperfections and are expected to post a detailed description of the item. Condition quality should always be stated. ie, new, used, damaged, broken, mint etc.
Buyers hold some responsibility to inquire about the condition of the item. If there's no description in the sales thread and you don't ask the seller about the details you'll have no idea what to expect during unBoxing Day. Ask questions. Save pms, emails and any other correspondence that show proof of intent.
As a non profit hobby forum we have no recourse when a sale goes bad. We can only list the member as unreliable or place a ban on them if we can prove deceit. We can't get your money or property back.
NEVER pay as a friend. I can't stress that enough. When you pay as friend you've now lost any PayPal protection you may have had. For the couple bucks you save it's simply not worth the gamble.
Surprises when opening up your newly acquired prop are never fun. Be cautious. Be safe.
GK45: Prolly for the best, my Wisdom Tooth has decided it doesn't like my mouth and has begun seceding little by little and I can't get it pulled for another month yet so sugar isn't my best friend right now...not that it is stopping me.

darthsquidious: I haven't had cake since I was 5, and interestingly I kept all my wisdom teeth. Correlation?

GK45: Supposedly they know how many times you've checked a tracking number and laugh at you.

scarecrow: Then they've gotten more than a few laughs on my behalf. I'm probably their Sam Kinison.
