    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "vouches". Sometimes when buying or selling, I will look at a poster's history in the discussion threads here at Bladeforums. It gives me a general idea of who they are, if they get along well with others, etc. I guess that's a kind of community "vouch". It may sway my decision as to whether to do business with them. Still has nothing to do with using Goods & Services on Paypal, though.

    Something like that...
    But we didnt talk here it was on IG.
    And the knife wasnt listed for sale.

    It has to do with trust...

    If someone dont trust me get vouches from known collectors, makers and G&S is fine.

    I have no prob my self getting vouches from collectors/makers.

    I'm going to assume that you missed an earlier post from me.

    It’d be even better if the assumption was that he didn’t. Seems to me that proudly proclaiming one’s dishonesty ought to be reason enough to be shown the door. But, you da boss.

    Late to the party her, and I have been reading the insults....

    But I'd never send payment friends and family..... unless I am sending the money to a friend....or family.....

    If the seller is demanding friends and family, out them, and I'll add them to my ignore list.

    I sent an offer on a knife just a few weeks ago. Seller messaged me for F&F. To save fees. I indicated I would send extra to cover....
    Had he said no, and demanded F&F I would have moved on.

    My favorite part of this thread is the whole vouches thing. I hate knife culture on facebook.

    This is the first time in almost 20 years on bladeforums, the LEADING knife website on the internet, that i have ever heard of “vouches.”

    Fortunately on a site like this where people are embedded in the community there is less of a likelihood of being scammed than on a site like instagram or facebook or reddit with the lack of investment in the hobby except profit.

    This forum exists as “vouches” for buying and selling. If someone gets a bad reputation here it will follow them them to every other knife community on the web. Google any of the biggest scammers and thieves and BFC threads will be top hits.

    Scuttling your reputation here is a bad idea.

    The BF owner's position on the matter is clear. It goes along with the policy prohibiting discussion of illegal acts. If you violate PayPal policies you are breaking their laws. Since the deals made here are between individuals, misuse of PayPal can't be prohibited. However BF neither recommends nor supports such misuse.

    And, if they would have just done the deal, I'm sure everything would have gone fine. But, instead, the OP, and Smiler, took us down a hole, and into a place, only the internet could create.

    I was just thinking - maybe I shouldn't be thinking? :D - that if we didn't have some of these thieving bastards, like Balls to the whatever (Heath Helton), that there wouldn't be so much paranoia. By nature, unfortunately, I'm a bit paranoid, lol. :(:eek::p

    Anyway, I thought I had a point, when I started this post, but, clearly I don't... Oh, wait, I don't think that either of these guys would screw anybody, if any of us did a deal, with them. However, I'm not saying that anybody should do a deal, with either of them, as I think that a knife acquisition should be tied to somebody we (maybe I'm reaching, and should say I?) feel a kinship with. Well, that's just my sentimental BS position, FWIW. :cool:

    Probably wouldn't be a bad idea not to show your face around here again. We don't need folks like you around. Seeya!
