a matter of trust ?

Hey guys,

I sold a couple of parts to a forum member who is not comfortable to pay me until the goods arrive.

So my question to those of you who have dealt with me is ; Am I "trustworthy and honourable" in my dealings with you guys ?

I was " comfortable" to post them which I did,,, So what is the etiquette on this as I'm confused a little. ?

; )

joe

ps just wanna say I'm not worried in the slightest of the honesty of the buyer..I don't think for a moment there is any issue at all. I guess we all like to be trusted.

Money first. Send Item with tracking number.
There are some guys on this forum I'd entrust my life to.
As a small example of trust, Randy has "our" F4CC titled in his name, insured in his name & tagged in his name. No money has exchanged hands. Melanie & I paid for it but it sits in his garage, well cared for. If he chose to he could sell it or, as he often jibes me about, part it out & we would not have a legal foot to stand on, even with Elton gunnin' for Randy. That's the kind of trust I have in Randy, and more....
Ed's received many thousands of dollars of parts on my behalf and shipped them to NZ. Could have put those parts on Gina. But always sent them on. That's the kind of trust I have in Ed, and more...
And this is also true of several others on here, from my perspective. It's a great place to be.
Now, would I trust Chuck and Melanie in a spa pool at the Cartersville Hilton at 1 am?
Actually, yes I would.
Joe, I hold you in very high regard. I'd trust you to send these items, post haste upon receipt of money. And that's the order of things regarding internet sales. Simple.

Ditto to Dave. Joe is well known this side of the pond and to me is clearly well regarded by one of the biggest dealers in secondhand/new parts for MV Agusta's (not sure I can name names here!)

Also trusted CAG, on a number of occasions, Ed, JDS and Al of Design Corse to name but a few.

It is a difficult situation I know, but if you are in need of something you have to take a few on the seller. Eg on eBay you would look to the number of sales and there feedback score.

I believe Joe is a knowledgeable, regular contributor, and well regarded on this forum.

My brief dealings with Joe give me a strong impression that he should be counted amongst the most trustworthy people to deal with on this forum.

Oh....and I might add that the village that we live in (New Zealand), is far too small to get unethical behaviour. Sure it happens from time to time, but we'll find you...

I don't see a whole lot of difference between that and our "family" here....well apart from the distances
