Sam.... I enjoyed swapping with you!
I wish more people were honest like you (and many others I've met here). Although I am saddened by your problems and stress, I completely understand and respect your decision. Swapping here should be fun and enjoyable, and not a source of stress. Take care of yourself and your family.
Thank you for starting this thread. :nod:
I do my best to describe my items in detail, and if I'm unsure, I list it. I would be VERY angry if something was listed as genuine and turned out to be fake, and I would make sure to give an appropriate token, and post their name on the forum.
1. Check out the swaplifters list before making swap offers or accepting them.
2. Be sure to be as detailed as possible with your swaps (condition, size, color, approximate age, etc)
3. Take plenty of pictures.
4. Prowl the forums. Sometimes, a question you have might already be answered.
5. Put up some terms and your likes and dislikes or your member page (check out different members' pages for ideas).
6. Give tokens, and don't be afraid to ask for them.
7. Have fun, and good luck swapping!
Ah, love2beach said what I was going to say. Vintage is technically 20 years old or older (that's how classic/ vintage cars are classified in NJ).
I think more swappers/ sellers need to a little more research about their items. If they want to list things as "vintage" (I do have a few true vintage items up for swap, BTW), they should google or read up on it.
Kind of ironic..... But it looks like at least one of us got swaplifted by LizbethM, the original poster on this thread. I had a couple of good (small risk) swaps with her, then.... I heard nothing from her. I sent her a couple of PMs, and also e-mails... (I do have an e-mail address for her). Then, I looked on her profile, and lo and behold, a comment on her page: Accusing LizbethM of being a swaplifter, too.
I am saddened, hurt, and stuck for ideas..... is there anything we can do about swaplifters?
