Guess the virtual equivalent of a handshake deal isn't what it used to be.
On a recent purchase and I was aware that there were others who were interested. I still had some question whether the seller understood that we had a deal. My last words to him were; Do we have a handshake in this deal?
His response was that the package had my name and address and was ready to ship. .....
You know, that is about as good as one can do. Things like this happen all the time and I've had a few bad dealings like this, on this forum. ...
That is why I don't participate in any postings that indicate an auction. It's expected on GB but not in here. ..... JMHO ....
Use to be that a man's word was worth it's weight, in gold and now it's too much of, money talks and BS walks.
Be Safe !!!
