    Hi Scotch Mist,

    I just bought a book on E-Buygumbay, and the deal was done via PM ie. personal message. Click on the sellers profile, and you will see "Send this person a personal message. They then get an email alert, and look at your message,none of this is in the public forum, so details can be exchanged. I had the book posted to me from Belgium, and sent a cheque off today, So some trust is involved. I hope It works as well for everybody, as it did for me. I am going to put my electric lawn mower on next, as I have a petrol one now. Try it and see what happens.

    Thanks Gardenantics, this makes everything clearer as to how it works, but I am a suspicious bugger by nature, I got my fingers burn't throught trusting people before and although I was brought up to believe that my word was my bond, unfortunatly there are a lot of shysters out there that will exploite this, what's to stop them logging on to this website and posing as real gardeners and doing this?  I have a friend that uses Ebay and even he got caught out, fortunatly paypal refunded his money.

    I give master classes in being a suspicious bugger! so I am with you all the way there. But you can make a judgement based on seeing the profile of the posting, and get an idea about that person. If they only posted to sell, then be careful. You will soon be alerted to any fraud on the board by the old Yabb Gods!
