Thanks for being my "eyes" over here while I'm busy with the reviews and other duties. We count on you folks to police the forums - feel free to notify me whenever you see someone posting ads or other inappropriate text.

Steve, I guess there's no feature on this forum system to add a link for each reply that's been posted that says, "Report this post to moderator"...it would make things easier.

Default Glad to see it gone!

There was an item on last nights news warning of deals being offered on the internet when what they really wanted was to grab at someones identity. If you look at the waiting time for delivery, it pretty much says it all. The customer waits and waits while the alleged seller runs???

Hi Mike, yes I read all the scams, but I'm wondering, do you have any credit card purchase protection arrangements or consumer protection Laws your side of the pond?

I'd never deal cash with these sorts, but I know merchants over here accepting credit cards can only process the order at the point of shipping, and on most cards purchases over 100 are insured on the card if the dealer doesn't deliver. The purchasers beef is first to the credit card company who are treated as Agents in the purchase transaction.

I've had problems with unlawful debits from my card account by an internet service provider, contrary to an agreement - and the card company refunded the amounts.
