    Sorry to have to ask this. But where on this forum do I warn people another member?

    Sadly I have Escrap to sell, had a person from here that said he wanted to buy it. Was remotely close. And agreed to pick up. Stood me up before. And didnt contact me for a while. reached out to me later and appologized. Then set up new appointment. Stood me up. (Said his friend was given 3 days to live and he couldnt make it. After I messaged to see where he was) Then agreed to another time. This time we were in contact all the way up till yesterday. I just got in a large amount of computers and busted my rear taking them apart to meet the timeline. And sorting as he requested. Then today he didnt show. I asked him if he was coming in text. And he simply replies I am out of this deal, not going to be there. This is already after the time he was suppose to be here. Is there a warning dont deal with this person section on the forum?

    Just post it here on this thread. There is no dedicated place that I know of unless they are a registered buyer here on the forum. If that is the case leave them a review on their thread.

    Sorry this happened. I assume he is not a member with a buyers thread. I suggest you contact one of the buyers here who does have a thread and recent reviews to base you decision on to who to use. I assure you that you will make out better with one of them.

    One member who has a buyers thread responded to your question here has a buyers thread, I would start with him and see what he is paying and his reviews. Check out some others as well but I have done business with him and several other buyers with buyers threads and have been very happy.

    I suggest you read the first page of each buyers thread and note how best to communicate with them(leaving a message via the forum is not the best way for all of them).

    I've seen where others have complained of lack of good communications with a buyer only to find out they had not used the preferred method.

    You will end up with more money in your pocket in the end if you follow my suggestions and soon the electric bill will be just something to pay.

    If you have a question you want to ask me in private send me a pm I will respond.

    73, Mike

    How much material do you have, what do you have and can you ship it? Shoot me a call 920-573-3139, I am a buyer here and it looks like I'm the closest to you. Im understanding of your situation, if the pics look good and I believe the material will turn out good I can push some payment immediately with a tracking number.
