    Hi guys! I switched to all Apple hardware this January and loving it!

    My question is, there are some nice deals on the forums (plus some stuff I wanna sell). But how do you go about to dealing transactions without the high risk of getting scammed?

    I wanted to do a trade once, but it was just too risky mailing out your item to a stranger. :mad:

    Given that this community is pretty tight (for the most part) you can usually deal with people with confidence. I usually won't buy from people with status=newbie, but most of the people selling here have been members for a while.

    Always use common sense when dealing with someone. If you are worried, try using an escrow service.

    I have bought/sold on here several times now and have yet to get scammed *crosses fingers*

    Bottom line, ask for seller references, pictures, etc...then make an informed decision.
