Default Bad Buyer alert

Yes I too have a bad buyer alert too!

guy bought a trans, I let his give a checK dated 2 weeks later, I forgot to cash it at the 2 week mark, and called him to make sure it was ok to cash a couple weeks later, he said his gf had closed the account and said he would mail me the money when he got his next pay check, that was about 2 months ago, the original sale was in mid Feb...


This got my thinking, with so many I'm thinking maybe we should start some type of system where each user has a link from their profile or something, where people could give feed back on how the transaction went.

Whatcha all think? Maybe call it I-Trader or something like that.

someone should talk to the owner of this site and see what he can come up with. I hear he's a pretty smrt dude.

Mudslinger183, from the west side, I think Muskegon

it was only $75, and I knew he was hard on cash, so I let him take it having the feeling I would never see the cash

The trans was advertised as having sat in the vehicle not being used a few years, works when the engine last ran, but leaked, and had been driven hard for 10 years...

He must have been hard up to drive 200 miles to get this trans.

Your own fault, you should have dismantled you mind on site and realized that you would forget to cash the check, it's not his fault it wasn't chromo... Er I mean you forgot.

yes it was my own fault, thats why my OP was did not incluse the buyer's name but was meant to see interest in some type of buyer/seller rating system.

maybe call it something catchy like "i-rate-u"

Which is why you don't get the dead horse treatment, you already admitted your mistake :)

Kinda hard, sounds like the guy needed a break and you offered. You probably already knew it was coming, so maybe deep down you made a donation
