Post subject:  Buying Dogs or Equipment Off The Forum is not responsible for bad transactions that take place on the forum from bad deals which includes seller not honoring a dog guarantee, dog not as advertised, receiving broken equipment, not receiving what you paid for an etc....

Buying Dogs

If your buying dogs off a forum (any forum or site, not just here) TRY BEFORE YOU BUY - If you buy a used vehicle, you drive it before buying it and check it out - do the same thing with a dog. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY. We can not stress that enough. If you don't and the dog is not as advertised, then that is on you for not trying before you buy. This is 2011, not 1965 - a mans word is not like it used to be.

We have a "Do's and Don'ts on Buying a Dog" page right on the homepage:

Buying Equipment

We have a Buyer and Seller Protection Option For Selling and Buying for buying goods off the forum.

We have added a feature on the site where sellers and buyers can use PayPal to sell and buy with added protection if a dispute arises. You must have a PayPal account to use this as a seller..........As a buyer, in order to have buyers protection, you need to have a PayPal account as well.

By using the Buyer and Seller Protection Option For Selling and Buying, you add some recourse on being able to get your money back if your are burned/scammed in a bad deal.

Here is the Buyer and Seller Protection Option For Selling and Buying info: viewtopic.php?f=52&t=112709

Posting Bad Deal Details on the Forum

We no longer become involved with any bad dog deal or bad transaction that takes place on the forum. We operate like UKC, PKC, and AKC forums run concerning bad deal transaction.

Bad deal transaction are between people that need to get all the details worked out between themselves.

Do not post the persons name and state that they are a crook!!!!!.

It is very SIMPLE, keep your bad transaction details off the forum......Work it out away from the forum. That means don't post they are a crook, don't post a warning, don't share your bad transaction details, don't post in someone's ad yalls bad transaction details, and etc..

If you choose to engage in those type of post IT WILL result in automatic ban.
