    Unsure about a seller....Ask a Mod.

    In the last two weeks, we've had two cases of dodgy dealings within the for sale section.
    Both completely avoidable by one simple action.
    ASK A MODERATOR.

    If you are new to paintball, you can't know everything about paintball, the equipment or the people selling gear.

    A simple PM to a moderator to ask advice, or even a post in the sale thread itself can pay massive dividends and help to stop you buying a mule.

    Follow these simple rules and you shouldn't go far wrong.

    1) Don't even look at a sale if the users name and a date are not visible on a piece of paper next to the goods offered for sale. (The mods will pick these threads up in good time and delete them anyway)
    2) If you are unsure about a seller, ask someone. If you see a low post count, then there is nothing to loose by finding out about the seller. Paintball is a very small world, someone will know the seller. If no one does, use the Fat Bobs 3rd Man service.
    3) If you are communicating with a seller on another format eg. e-mail, x box live etc, ask yourself why the sale isn't being played out on the forum.

    4) IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT IN ANY WAY, USE THE FAT BOBS 3RD MAN SERVICE

    As above guys, PM any one of us. We usually know what's a good/bad deal and who to deal/not deal with so just drop us a PM.

    Little bump.
    There are lots of new members joining at the moment. If someone with a very low post count (Under 100) is selling something, please do your homework first.
    If you are in any doubt, use the Fat Bobs 3rd man service.

    It maybe worth knowing that several members who were banned for their conduct in the classifieds on p8nt have re-registered.
    So use caution when buying or selling items.

    This isn't the thread for it. Please read the for sale rules and post in that section.

    Thanks

    If you ask nicely, I'm sure they'd have a quick look over it, although don't expect them to take any responsibility if there are less obvious issues!

    I'm pretty sure they do not check if they are working etc - all they do is open it, check it is what it says it is then ships it on.

    No we don't check equipment to see if it is working, inside the box I would expect a list of contents that should be in there as per the sale items sold. It is the sellers job to check to see if the item sold is working as it's their item been sold.
