Sorry you didn't get your bridge, but happy that you got your money back.
The only person I've never met 'in the flesh' that I would use 'gift' with is Rich.....most likely Matias too.
Actually, there are a few on this site I would trust with it based on their reputations, but no one else.
It's just asking for trouble with someone you're not familiar with. Isn't there another thread where this is discussed in detail? Making sure you use every protection available, both selling and buying.
Sorry you learned the hard way, but at least that event saved you money this time.

I did the "make offer" thing on ebay when looking to buy an amp. Offered the guy $25 less than the asking price... He said sure, but to do a paypal gift to save him the ebay fees and he would pull the amp off ebay. I thought twice about it and just figured it wasn't worth getting ripped off for $250 over a $25 savings... so I just bought it through ebay for the security. Got a great amp for reasonable price!

I've used paypal gift 3 times and always got what I asked for. just screen the seller before you commit to anything.

He's referring to the first time where he paid as gift and got screwed.

Gift is a very useful tool when the buyer needs something shipped to an address that is not their registered address. The only way I'll ship to alternate address is if paid Gift or cash [wire, etc]. The problem is you have to trust the seller explicitly. Here was having it shipped to an alternate address and the seller, just never shipped.

Re: 2nd time here I am cheated!

I only gift to people I know/would trust and have a solid history of doing deals. Just wondering though, how did you get your money back if you gifted?

If they want to do "gift" stay away. Good sellers will not do that. It protects both parties. Glad you got your money back.

2nd time here I am cheated!

Bad news again. I am cheated here in the classified forum again. It is my 2nd time already.

This time I bought a used LO-PRO worth $140 from a member "hachimako"

Money sent long agao, but silence.

Learn from last time that never do paypal gift. Lucky I got my $140 back.

I am warning you all guys here spend more for the paypal fee. It is the only way to get the money back if the seller ran away.

Just wanna share the bad experience.
