Default Buyers Beware:

Just like Craig's List, do a little research before buying and selling in the Garage Sale section.

If the guy has a slim "profile" (yahoo addy, not much info, etc) and no history, and you don't know them, you are gambling.

If something looks too good to be true, or doesn't "feel" right, there are lots of parts in the world, just skip that one.

DuramaxDiesels and it's staff are not responsible for private transactions that go sour, but we do like to hear about them. We normally remove Garage Sale priviledges from people who botch transactions. Ask Wade.

Well I might buy one of them as long as you put in some new muffler bearings first. A kneutson valve would be a bonus too!

It's also one of few sites with more hardcore wrenches and racers than wannabees.

It comes up time to time, but it's fairly rare here. Most guys are racers, and they don't want a bad karma to run over their dogma in the future, so they try to keep a clean rep.

Wow good to know.

It may be a felony but it seams like 1 of the easier 1s for Scamers to get away with.

^^^This.

The other truck forum I frequent and help moderate has a Trader Rating system. It's comparable to ebay's feedback. Positive, neutral, or negative, along with comments. It's a quick way to check a member, and add a little insight.

We also have a member feedback section. Provides a place for members to resolve issues, or just give props. If I am considering a transaction on a forum, I usually check these sections first. I was surprised to not see them here.
