I just spent $950 on a used E-Trac from a member on the forum. I would not have done that if I was not able to trust the seller who had over 7,000 posts, and see his iTrader ratings. The sale went perfectly.

Thank you enforcing the rules the way they are.

Sorry if it rubs some new members the wrong way.
Best thing to do is to not use the gift option. If a seller is going to accept Paypal payments, any fees should be included in their asking price. JMO
