    I am trying to buy some tail lights from other members, although i dont want to get ripped off. Ive had offers that the website later emailed me and said the member was "shady". What is the best way to buy something from someone else without any risk of losing your money??

    There really is no way, unless you use a middle man, but that would jack the price up.

    i thought if they didnt have any money it would automaticly draft it from the connected bank account/card and on top charge the seller a 10 buck fee

    there's been very few bad incidents on here from members buying from each other. you could buy from someone with a higher post count if you're concerned. we'll be adding itrader very soon where people can rate their buying experiences from other members

    paypal is not always safe like some say, if they close there bank account there is nothing paypal can do. i posted before about doing feed back, i was on 3 other sites for my magnum and all 3 had a way to give feed back.if everything was good then both give good feed back if something went wrong like you got riped off then you post bad feed back kind of like ebay.

    I'm surprised we don't have a buyer and seller feedback thread. Many other boards I participate in have them and it is a good way to gauge.
