    you mean he joined as in paid up member or joined as in uses the bb?

    If you only bought them last week then you may be being a little hasty but when all's said and done - you pays your money, you takes your choice. He's been on here 2 weeks - i wouldnr be buying off him.

    EDIT :

    just looked him up - he's not a member, he registered on the 9th - so 13 days ago and hasnt posted a single thing - hmm.......

    I've found a "polar mike" in the user list, but can't find any posts by him

    How did you manage to buy something from someone with no posts?

    I hope you didn't buy something off someone who appeared out of the blue with no posts and PM'd you

    Maybe he's just being a bit slow. Anyone else dealt with him?

    Got any more details for us to go on, other than Hove? (PM me if you like )
    '97 180sx with S15 SR20DET & 6MT + a few other bits.
    Recent DIY 1: Front track-rod ends replaced.
    Recent DIY 2: O/S front sill welded.

    If you want any of my old guides, put your e-mail in the PM and I'll send them over (saves me asking ).

    If you paid by cheque, post up the address you sent it to.

    ouch...slightly on a tangent here, but maybe we should have a sticky in the for sale section that has a few guidelines for buying stuff....
    I know theres stuff in the announcement bit but a sticky with only a few recommendations would get peoples attention...

    If you paid by cheque or card you can still cancel, even a week down the line. Just phone the bank and say it was a fraudulant cheque etc

    So he registered, watched the wanted section or just randomly PM'd folk saying he had stuff to sell?

    Man... I'm sorry, but you just don't buy anything from someone who has never posted on a BB. I know it doesn't help for those affected, but still..

    We should have a sticky thread in the for sale section for things like this.
    A lot of this is happening at the moment
