I have an opportunity make a long distance purchase in Pensacola, FL, and it would be nice to have a forum member or a friend of a forum member (or any other trust worthy resource), verify the existence, condition, seller, etc...
This potential purchase has the feeling "If it's too good to be true.. yada yada yada..."
Not getting a last name or phone number so far from the seller, (Criags List), and a medium level alert is kicking in before PayPal happens.
A shame too, as I've been looking a while, and when it does pop up, the negotiation goes almost too easy, followed by a first name only, an address, the admission that I'm just flipping, and a claim that I don't have a phone. No real email address revealed as of yet either.
This deal may be as advertised, but I'm just seeing a caution flag, and don't want to end up holding an empty bag.
Any help, ideas, suggestions etc are welcome.
