BTW I was not talking about a scammer I was talking about the purchase being 95 % ok, but the 5 % defect was a serious defect and should legally and ethically have been disclosed, as in both cases they knew about it, but chose to not disclose it.
They could even have told me after I paid them but to let me find out the hard way, eish.

In both cases it was not something you could have noticed up front as I had both items checked out before I bought.

Anyway water under the bridge.

Kan bly wees dis nie aan Willie wat hy die 500K betaal het nie.

Cool om te hoor maar wees bewus van die skelms wat ook hier rond hang!

I had a pleasant experience recently when buying a bike from a forum member, this guy was so open and up front with everything. Sent tons of pictures after i was already satisfied with the bike. I arranged to pick up 600kms away, was picked up and taken to his home, everything that was extra was placed neatly on the floor to show me, repacked into the panniers, when asked where i could find a petrol station , he simply said i've filled it up for you since i know you have a long ride to do. Whattsapped me along the way to see if all was good.
The next day i found that the bike was backfiring a bit so phoned to ask him what he thinks, he said please take it to your nearest bike shop and he'll pay to get it sorted. I didnt take up the offer as it was not that bad.
More honest and outright great person i could not find.
Anyway a long story to say how great this guy is but i also chose to pay him fully upfront before even getting on the plane to fetch it. I just had a great feeling from the start.
I have had a few dealing on this forum and definitely find it more trusting that Gomboom and the likes.
Three cheers to all of us and the forum of course
Ride it like you stole it!!!

@petri oosthuizen Agreed and many thanks.  I rely heavily on the tech knowledge vault here which I will just take this opportunity to thank, just quietly.  Its through these contacts that have done valuable transactions.

Also for awesome destination routes

But please do be aware especially if someone does not post often.

Die gereelde posters is so bang vir my lae post count hulle betaal nie eens die courier koste wanneer ek hom goed verniet gee nie.
Wel, een ou s'n wag ek nog voor, die ander het darem die R100 betaal nadat ek vir hom 2 keer moes reminders stuur..... ::) ::)

Well done Petri, on a good topic. I have had nothing but 110% from fellow WDs buying and selling. Yes, been lucky, but your gut tells you if its a good deal or not.By the way, I'm on my way to the farm in Ganyesa on Wednesday next week, and have to go through your town. Maybe stop at the local pub for a beer and lunch.

Perhaps I just am a sucker for old school values, but probably 70% of the bags I courier to clients on the forum are sent before invoicing and payment.

NEVER had an issue...

Nope...70% of the time I dropped the bags at the courier on the way to the beach or some other important destination.
30% was pure fluke that I managed to get my shit together in time to send them the invoice.

BTW...I think you fell into the 70% every time you purchased from me.
