THE TOP IS SOLD!!! I put the top on e-bay and ended up getting more money for it. ~Funny~ People on Benz World are a perfect example of the rat race; no faith in mankind, know one trusts each other, they will sell their soul for another dollar, and they love to one up their neighbor. I guess some people live for different things in life!!!
While I understand how an honest person would feel offended if called a cheat, the caution that has shawdowed all internet purchases, (including PayPal), is warranted. Sellers do cheat buyers far more often than buyers cheat sellers, and you are a seller of a large ticket item.
Your BW point of view is narrow minded and far off the mark. I am cautious when I buy here because I have been cheated, and when you see comments of caution, it's usually from those who have also sent the money, and never received the part.
My faith in mankind is based upon reality, not some idealist dreamers point of view, and it changes with the situation, as it should.
If you want me to send you my hard earned money, and just trust to faith that you are honest enough to be sending what you advertised, don't be surprised when I become more sceptical as the price goes up and the potential to lose greater amount of money becomes a reality.
I use Paypal all the time to purchase items, and we at BW have discovered that PayPal offers no protection at all, except that it's a record of an exchange of money. They have no power and can do nothing to the seller, and that is a fact, buyers are scammed using paypal all the time.
You are being childish throwing your remarks around a location that you rarely become a part of. Six posts means your a stranger, and we're all supposed to beleive you are the one who is honest, it's the other guy who's a cheat.
For the most part, everyone who spends a fair amount to time here at BW are really great folks, and just because we are careful and look out for each other when someone new advertises doesn't mean anything except we care enough about each other to watch the other guys back.
Like so many other one time posters or those who don't post here very often, your only interest here seems to be to sell something to a group you have deemed to be potential sources of money for youself. Other than that, you seem to have no other interest in what goes on here, and that's fine, but remember, you came to us, no one here invited you to join us long enough to sell an item, then dissapear.
All that being said, I am glad you are an honest person, (it's much easier to beleive in you when you don't want my money), and that your sale on eBay went well.
Have a peaceful trouble free life, and I hope you never get scammed yourself. Keep the faith....lol
