Upload & Sell: On
Wendy, FWIW, I have had numerous transactions here with members with flawless feedback on high-dollar items (i.e., lenses, bodies, etc) using both MO and personal checks. While it might well happen that down the line I get burned, it hasn't happened yet. I pay careful attention to whether or not the buyer/seller has a history with putting up posts on whatever board it is that reflects their specialty(ties). On sales I offer a 48 hour inspection and hold their personal check until I get the okay. With USPS MO, I cash it, deposit it, and that ensures that if the person I've sold to doesn't want the item, I have the funds available to create a USPS MO in their name and then send it back.
So, Dan is exactly correct on all counts.
