Here is a short guide for trading and what to do first if you
think you have been ripped off by a trader.
1) Always ship with insurance and tracking #'s.If shipping expensive
items,ship with delivery confirmation.
2) Always ask for a real name and home address when trading with
somebody who is unknown or has no heatware evals.
3) Always have other party ship first if trader is unknown or has no
4) Always do a search on a trader if you are unsure of his
credibility.Credit Red Dawn for this one
5) If you do not recieve the goods/money right away,email said
trader and request action
6) If said trader does not respond in two working days,email
7) If after one week of no response,contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
8) Please do not jump to conclusions until a reasonable amount of
time has passed.Two weeks of no response is a sure bet that
something is wrong.
9) Do not make decisions while you are upset,Only post or email me
after you have calmed down.This is most important.Making decisions
while enraged will not help your cause,it can only hurt it.
10) Do not post derogatory remarks on said trader,instead,post your
situation in a calm and friendly manner.Flaming someone will only
raise tempers hurting your chance of getting your goods back.(I have
been guilty of this one)
11) Ask if anyone else has had trouble with said trader.It's always
good to know as much as possible when trading with someone
especially if you think you got ripped by that person.
12) If said trader does not rectify situation and action has to be
taken,post a negative heatware eval on said trader.Thanks to
mastertech01 for this bit of wisdom
13) If said trader does not rectify situation and action has to be
taken,I will post a thread stating "Do not trade with this
person".If said trader straightens out the mess he/she has
created and everyone who is involved is satisfied,I will retract
14) Last but not least............ Be Nice and courtious,Nobody
likes to be spoken to in a RUDE manner.
