Most of you know this but for those who are unsure...
If you pay by gift and there is a problem with the sale you will stuggle to get your money back.
If you do decide to gift money at the very least speak to the seller and obtain as many details as you can. If you haven't dealt with that person before I would still recommend that you don’t gift but pay as goods. The commission is 4%, at least you have piece of mind.
If the sellers telephone number is unobtainable or the person who picks the phone up doesn’t know what your talking about then you must start thinking the deal maybe dodgy.
If your still not sure about the user message or ring me ..... Alan ... on 07701 054 538.
Tackle-Trader is like any other classified/auction type platform whether its Loot, Adtrader, a fishing forum or even Ebay there are people out there looking to fleece you. You don't need me to tell you that.
If an item seems cheap, at the very least and before you commit to sending money you must ideally talk to the seller first to establish who they are and where they live.
We all love a bargain and there are genuine bargains to be had, just be careful. I have said before and we all know.... " If it seems to good to be true it probably is" so at the very least contact the seller in person and don't just rely on messages via the site.
I'm not against gift payments through paypal as I prefer it myself, however, if you are going to gift money only do it if you know the person and again at the very least have all there details, full name address home telephone number. If there is a problem its unlikely that you will get your money back without having to get the police involved or taking a civil action against the other party. The same applies to a bank transfer, you need all the persons details you can get. I CAN'T give out details unless its for the police because of the data protection act, so you need to obtain all the relevent information.
If any of you see any ad on here or receive any message that you think maybe a bit dodgey contact me. I will have a look at the user and check his details. I'm also willing to tell anybody the history of any user. The site is setup now so you can see how long a user has been a member and how many posts he has made. You can also view all his older posts regardless of thier status, ie sold, closed etc. Just click on there username to view these details.
If your'e still not sure about someone just contact me and I'll tell you thier history..
I will not give out any personal details (Data protection act) so please do not ask me.
IF YOU SEE ANYTHING ON HERE THAT YOU THINK IS NOT RIGHT THEN PLEASE RING ME AND I'LL HAVE A LOOK AT IT.... ALAN.....07701 054 538.
Had a few members mention to me about users sending messages and not getting ant response from the recipient. I appreciate that sometimes some of us are very busy people. There is no rule that you have to respond to messages but please just bear in mind that someone has taken the trouble to message you so a response would be nice even if its a very short response like "No thanks" or "Not interested".
When items are sold can users either put sold on the ad or close the ad save people trying to buy something that's already gone. Thanks.
Hopefully the site will continue to grow as it has done for the last 18 years. I have always considered that the Tackle-Trader community is very tight, long may that continue.
As always thanks for your support.
