Just read a post about scammers.
Itís 2020 guys, get a PayPal account for transactions it easy.
The days of sending money and waiting for the parts are over.
Itís sad but true.

Many people will ask you to send money "as a friend" to avoid paypal fees. I do it too. BUT, I don't think you get any protection this way. Paypal doesn't see it as a transaction.

In the other thread, I shared where I sent money through PayPal and had no recourse. Paypal actually sent me an email...…

Just some things to think about....I'm thinking a good credit card with protection AND PayPal may give some more protection....

Must send as "Goods & Services" for PayPal protection.

You know that's not really a silly comment, some rooster years ago bought the old London Bridge and moved it to Arizona or some state nearby.

Yes, the old London Bridge was dismantled and reassembled in Lake Havisu City, AZ. Drove over it a few times. Can't remember the man's name, but he was big in Havisu.

Yes vilanar is correct. McCulloch started the chain saw and outboard motor of the same name. He founded LHC because he needed a new place to move his company. Very interesting story. Lake Havasu City is my favorite place of all Arizona. Tons of hot rods and stockers there of all makes.

I always use Friends and Family buying and selling but only on Ford Barn. I have no fear of members with history on this site. I would never think of using Paypal with someone outside this site or The Hamb if I know them.
