Newbie here and this is my first post. I am in the market for a new detector and came across your site.

I don't even know if calling a person to talk to them would work these days with pay-as-you-go, no-contract cell phones. A person could have one and get rid of it with no identifying information connected to the scammer. Just a thought. :-\

You are right , it could get scarey at times....I sold a high $$$$$$ detector on e-bay and had no problems, but still had that thought "what if" ....Hope you pick you a good detector !!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I know there's bad people out there, but I've done thousands of internet transactions over the last several years. I use paypal and postal money orders "only" to pay and to receive payment. And "knock on wood" I've never had a problem. Always get phone #'s and street addresses and email addresses. Then google them to see if it's legite. And always keep it within the continental U.S.
