Buyers/Sellers 'Feedback' Forum Express your knowledge of particular buyers, sellers, and traders and search for the experiences of others. Please only relate 'first hand' knowledge - no "a friend of mine said his mate bought something off this bloke" type stuff - and remember if you 'recommend' someone and the deal goes 'pete tong' - the buyer/seller might be asking YOU why you recommended them.

Default BUYERS/SELLERS FEEDBACK FORUM

We've added a new forum . . .

The idea is that BEFORE parting with any cash you can ask (by posting a thread) in the new forum if anyone has had dealings with the seller/trader or buyer you're about to deal with.

If you don't know a buyer or seller (even by reputation) then please ask for 'references' in the BUYERS/SELLERS FEEDBACK FORUM

https://www.volkszone.com/VZi/forumdisplay.php?f=59

A genuine Buyer or Seller won't be offended at you checking them out.

However, we ask that you only relate 'first hand' knowledge - no "a friend of mine said his mate bought something off this bloke" type stuff and remember if you 'recommend' someone and the deal goes Pete Tong- the buyer/seller might be asking YOU why YOU recommended them. So please think carefully before replying.

ANY ABUSE OF THIS FORUM WILL GET YOU KICKED OFF VZi - NO SECOND CHANCE . . . so please, no using it to 'diss' competitors

We don't have time to get involved in 'rivalry' or 'squabbles' - it will just be easier to bounce your ass(es) outta here . . . so PLEASE STICK TO 'FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE/FACTS'

This will be the only warning you get - THINK before you post

We're just trying to make VZi a safe place to do business - and surely that's what EVERYONE wants



SOME MORE ADVICE

Please be advised, all buyers and sellers should satisfy themselves that the other party is genuine by providing the following via PM to each other after negotiations are complete and prior to dispatching goods and making payment:

1) Landline telephone number. Make a call to check out the area code and number are correct too!

2) Name and address including postcode.

3) Valid e-mail address (no disposable addresses such as @gmail or @yahoo for example).

We suggest you DO NOT proceed with a deal until you are completely satisfied with all details being correct. It's in your best interest to check out these details yourself.

Thanks for reading

VZi Admin. Team

Any tips on how to get me money back from a lying shit peddler?

Or do i use the return address on the package "old skool"?

Gutted that the first transaction on here leads to 40 out of pocket and being filled full of shit!!

Thanks guys

Hi Bertie, was the item you purchased advertised on here?

Your first call would be to start a thread of your own on this part of the forum with some details of what happened.
