I won the bidding on the TFO rod. This guy was clear in his ad that PAYPAL was his preferred method of payment. When it was time for me to pay he insisted that I pay extra if I used PAYPAL and pushed hard for me to pay by money order. Ebay says Money Order payments offer no protection and one should beware of fraudulent sellers when paying with a money order. I couldn't believe how much this guy pushed to get payment by money order. I became suspicious and warn you to do the same.:( :( :( :( :(

Thanks for the warning.

One thing that really bothers me about getting payment via PayPal is the high charges PayPal takes out of the credit card payments people send me. I do like the convenience of it though, so usually what I do is tack on a few extra bucks as a handling charge to my auctions to cover for this. It can really kill you on small value auctions since PayPal charges on a decreasing curve, i.e. a $5 PayPal payment may have $1 deducted but a $20 purchase may only have $2 deducted.

I tack the paypal charges in w/ my shipping charges. I will not pay anyone w/ money order. I've been scammed twice on ebay. Ounce for golf clubs and ounce for a shirt. Paid w/ paypal thru a credit card and got my money back on both. I'm not saying anything is wrong w/ the poster above but you are taking a big chance sending a money order. Bad feedback doesn't get you your money back.

That guy is just unreal....I can't and won't even begin to explain to you how much of a pest this person is. I'm not getting any bites on my equipment on this site anyway but if you have any doubt look at my ebay feedback, member id saves_today....yes you will see a negative feedback from the jerk who posted above, but like I said its difficult to put a person like him in words. He's gone off the deep end :Eyecrazy:

Also, two days after you flipped out on me I sold the TFO to a clinically sane person in Washington. She sent me a personal check, I cashed it and sent her an absolutely gorgeous rod that she loves. Just like every other transaction I've ever made before you it was silky smooth. Such a good transaction that it makes up for like 20% of the massacre that you created, and that's saying a lot.

Anyone that tells me that they prefer I pay by PayPal and then pressures me to send a money order is really suspect at best. Watch out if you buy any of this "Stuff For Sale" :whoa: :Eyecrazy: :whoa: :Eyecrazy: :whoa: :Eyecrazy: :whoa:
