  • Ahh; this is kinda dicey...

    I've found a legendary DD3 module! But I'm in Canada it's in the US.
    This is a private sale; not an auction sale.
    The dilema?
    I'm sending a substantial payment to a complete stranger & HOPING he'll send the goods. What's the safest way to do this transaction?
    Is there any way I can protect myself?
    Much thanks.

    careful!

    I strongly recommend requiring the seller to agree to an escrow...

    www.escrow.com

    There is a fee based on the size of the transaction but it is reasonable. BTW, a while back I bid and won a ddrum3 on ebay from a guy in California, but he had no transaction history...I had suggested an escrow arrangement and he agreed. The "short of it" is that the unit showed up at my door inoperable/broken (he did a horrible packing job). I had him arrange for UPS to pick it up at my house...and it didn't cost me anything because the original shipping fee I agreed to pay was in escrow as well. Also, specifically instruct the seller that you will require him/her to be responsible for insurance
    E-drums: TD-20, RT-5S triggers on snare/toms, KD-7s, VH12, CY-14Cs, CY-15R, Pintech splash.
    A-drums: Zickos (amber) w/ all Zildjians.

      Thanks Jimmy, that's exactly what I need! I didn't even know they existed.
      I've registered & just need to get the seller's agreement & we'll be up & running. It'll cost (me) $42 but worth the knowledge that I won't get burned.
