Classifieds Are Now Viewable To The General Public
« on: February 01, 2013, 11:28:43 PM »
We here at SchwinnBikeForum have decided to open the Classifieds to the general public for viewing. If you you don't want any personal information to be seen by the public do not post it in your ad. Only members can post ads. As far as disputes are concerned see below.

 We are not dispute mediators here. Our expectations for the Classified section is that everyone deal in good faith with each other and it is our responsibility to prevent any type of ongoing fraud, scam or purposeful deception.
We ask that sellers and buyers that have disputes to settle things between themselves. If you suspect that you are a victim of a scam or fraud that you please contact the moderators through the Personal Messaging or email and provide some evidence that we will use to discuss among ourselves to determine what actions need to be taken.

There has been a dispute… 
This is a good time to remind members to pay with paypal whenever possible and NOT to send it as a gift/friend payment. I've seen some major issues develop when sending as friend/family, mainly... the buyer having no recourse if something goes wrong. The money they charge is the cost of doing business.  Figure it into the price of the part BEFORE you list it.  In this case it would have been money well spent.  I also will only send parts with tracking….
I just got burnt sending a part to England with USPS….  They told me their small box was insured….. Not so.  I had to send a replacement.
