Problems with Scamming on AO

I'm not taking either side in who is right or wrong, but will say this to would-be traders and tradees - when a seller posts they aren't giving refunds or returns, its in your best interest to DEAL in FACT, not ASSUMPTION.

If what you stand to gain is bigger than what you're putting in, chances are something too good to be true usually is.

If you're not going to follow up to protect your butt, then you deserve whatever consequences come from it. Don't pollute the boards griping about it, we can't protect you from your own stupidity.

Likewise, Would-be sellers - you need to disclose all known facts - if you don't know then say so to protect your own butt. Don't weasel out and try to blame him for being stupid while you profit. Make sure he understands what he's getting.

Bottom line - engage your brain before you engage your wallet.

This entire issue could have been avoided with honest and open communication between both buyer and seller. Both of you go to your room, and no looking at pics of Wubbah's hawt sister...

My .02.

I apologize for what was portrayed as griping. I was simply trying to warn certain people and see how to fix my guns.

Dude, you gotta protect yourself. The real world is not a kind place (that includes here on the forums as well) and even people you know can take advantage of you. It's not showing disrespect to ask questions about a business dealing. In fact, it irresponsible of you not to do so.

When you younger guys allow stuff like this to happen by not protecting yourselves, you're just inviting more of this crap to happen here.

At the same time, I know for a fact I've posted on this very topic many times. For any member whose been here for more than a year to not understand these points and try to do business here, its just pure insanity.

Am sorry but I don't feel sorry for anyone who would allow their own complacency screw them. Its unfortunate, but completely and totally preventable.

This should be read by all, participating in the classified forum atleast. Good post texx.

Win Bah- I think the word sister was mentioned, more specifically your sister.
Pics or GTFO.

Agreed Texx. These are wise words, and as stated, whenever you purchase from independent sellers; you're rolling the proverbial dice. Keep a frugal mentality, you are allowed to say no. You'll have this kind of behavior anywhere I suspect, however it reflects poorly on the airsoft community, with that being said...If you intend to engage in nefarious deeds......Take that $h!t elsewhere!!! Let try to set a positive example for the younger players....Just sayin.
