Sorry to hear about it. Hopefully we can keep it limited and still have a nice atmosphere on here. This is legit my fav forum that i've been on. Nice folks, who love hunting.

This is a great forum with a lot of honest knowledgeable members. There is always going to be some one with less than honorable intentions to take advantage of opportunities. In the future maybe sales, not purchases, should be limited to members with at least an “Active Member” rating?

I guess it was bound to happen. I have been active buying and selling here since day 1. Never an issue ... I guess be on guard but let’s not let one bad transaction push us to the dark side. Sorry this happened to you and thanks for sharing

I hate to hear it also. It was a very strange thread. I didn’t realize the guy had joined only a couple hours before the listing.

Maybe require new members (I know this is me at the moment) to list their items via paypal + fees? Don't want to over react, just a suggestion.

Me neither. Not until I reread the thread and saw the eBay post.

No dark side here. I just want people to be aware. These Mantis saddles sell so quickly on here it can make you not do your homework. And if we are going have people pop in here to do this we just need to be cautious. I was just a little surprised. Hadn’t heard of it before.

Also just bummed because I thought I was getting a new saddle. Been rocking this evolution I bought used from Ernie for 3 years.

I'll paypal you 35$ to help recover some of your expense if youd like. Or if you needed the extra money to get gaffs or a way up a tree I have a extra set of sticks or spare set of gaffs I'd gladly mail you to help.

This is a stand up move! I would be willing to do the same if it helps a brother out. Let me know!

That sucks! Sorry to hear about that.

I'm part of a fb bow group and moderator. We never had this issue until the group grew bigger... Only has happened twice. Limiting people to only active members or whatever won't stop this type of crap. The best thing to do is always pay with PayPal goods and services. If the seller ask for friends and family in the post offer to pay the extra 3%... only one reason why the seller would say no.

Always use goods and services. 3% is well worth the protection you get and all the seller needs to do is upload a tracking number. I always pay the fee, if the seller isn't ok with that I don't buy it.

Well, this stinks. As was already stated, I've really let my guard down dealing in the classifieds here, as SH is by and large a much nicer group of folks.
