    Guess I will put my 2 cents in. Here is the email I got from a question I asked about a rotor on the swap forum. That very day this is the email I got.

    Yes I sent the money but thru paypal and not thru friends and family. I didn't do much checking as we were headed out of town that day and I needed a rotor. When I checked after no one would return my emails in paypal it went to Faith Fowler using When contacted on my email it came from So it pays to check and my first red flag should have been a 4 month old G-800A that sells for about $500 for $185 should have been my first clue. Anyway beware folks. They must be scouring the classifieds all the time.

    Update today. I got my money back thru paypal. It said refund from Faith Fowler. They did not say if the money was in her account or if they went after her or what. All I care about is in my paypal account is $200 bigger. They said claim resolved.
