    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    I don't understand why people continually try to use this to avoid PayPal fees when doing buying transactions.

    It goes both ways, though. When I sell a part to someone I don't know, particularly if it's a hard to find part, I'll usually ask them to pay me via "friends and family" and fund it with a bank account or PayPal balance. It has nothing to do with avoiding the PayPal fees. It's the only way to protect yourself from getting fu**ed over. There are a lot of scammers out there who will file a dispute even though they received the item.

    Then again, I'm not a business. I'm just a hobbyist who occasionally sells things to other hobbyists. No reputable business should insist on "friends and family".

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    I was hanging recently with a couple of Pinheads in the "Business", "Leaving this Business", and "retired"
    from this business.
    We all agreed on one thing.
    Consumers have changed, and much of that is related to "Amazon Syndrome"
    Having Goods Fast, is todays world. It isnt always as easy, as those that use phrases like
    "My Money", have criteria they expect.
    It doesnt make the Op here, or anyone else Bad or wrong, its more that there are some of us
    old or tired, and sometimes ill, from what the Hobby/Job offers.
    For me, its harder to get 1 package out at this time, then 100, when I had a Full time Staff and machine running.
    Consumers wouldnt know whats happening behind the scenes in the pinball business, but those that jump in and start selling, respectfully, all have a mountain of stories.
    Its part of the world today, where "Money" is the first, and most important thing in life, and politics.....
    Some may not see these changes, but I find myself missing the days of Patience anywhere I go....
    Maybe its just me, and some the guys as we are "Old"......

    If all sellers conducted themselves like you, Art, we would never have threads like this. You are a man of integrity that prides himself on customer service. Unfortunately, not all sellers have this same attitude towards their customers.
