Never buy from a stranger without the proper forum. Require the item be placed on Ebay as private auction. EBay has money back guarantee for any reason and they pay return shipping if NAD not as described. EBay requires PayPal and always use a credit card here as card company always sides with member. PayPal hates it because if they would ever decide against you your credit card company will not. If they can not use ebay then use PayPal. If item is not received the sellers funds are placed in escrow. PayPal will always pay you back for non received item and so will EBay. The seller is required to show tracking. No tracking even if you received it means seller must refund you. Do any dispute the first day item not received. Do no partial refunds or send money to unknown email address. Do not accept the sick excuse or many others as my father is dying. The only thing important is was it received. There is no other compromise and you still have right of return with full refund.
