I have a alot things to trade right now, and will soom be trading/selling things I haven't used. I am keeping many that fit my act, and trading some that are excellent, but don't fit my act.

I got a PM from someone who was trading here on the Café. He said he sent his magic, but hasn't recieved his trade in 6 weeks. He also said his PM's go unanswered.

I have yet to ship anything yet, although I will when I recieve what I bargained for. I am wondering if there is a thread for people who don't keep there word about trading/selling in a timely manner (if at all.

I personally will send that I agree to in the next buisinees day, since I have the item ready to ship.

Can anyone help so I know who to deal with?

Its buy at your own risk. The Café people don't have anything to do with the transactions. I will PM you about some of your stuff, I have people I have traded/sold to as references if you'd like. Josh
If a magician is not intending to "trick" a spectator, why is every "trick" called a magic "trick"?

I actually got ripped off once. I sent him my tricks then never heard from him again. One percaution is to ask him if he has ever traded with someone else before and PM those people.

Another is to check the number of posts. Chances are if somebody has over 300 posts he will not rip you off.

I also like to check the quality of a few of their posts. If they have only written about "how c00l david blane" is, and junk like that, then I won't buy from them, and I will only sell to them if they are paying with Paypal or a money order.

Before every transaction, I just pray Smile

But also noting, as others have said, the status of the member as well as their attitude towards magic is a good way to start.

Take care and all the best,
