I had many successful and happy experience, meeting buyer/seller and had a chat is a very enjoyable experience.
I also had a bad experience of been played out; once I advertised to sell a P&S camera, one guy contacted me asking me to reserve the camera for him until his pay day which is 2 weeks later. We exchanged SMS and I asked him specifically that he if I close the thread and reserve for him, he must honour the deal, and got a reply that he will. Few days before his payday, I SMS him to ask for confirmaton, and got a possitive reply. So I waited, 2 days pass his payday, he didn't contact me, send SMS also got no reply, when I called him, he rejected my call. Used another phone to call him, he picked up the call, when I identify myself, he cut off the call immediately. The worsed thing is that, I actually had another person offer to buy my camera, and I rejected it because of my promise, and at the end been played out. That was a lousy feeling of kindness been exploied.
Is it possible for clubsnap to implement stuffs like reputation rating? Something similar to ebay.

The banned list could be useful for weeding out user accounts that leads to "fraudalent" actions....but seriously, such ppl can just sign up for another account. I've done some sales of my old stuff before and i've experienced CSers (with single digit post counts) quoting unreasonable prices or simply "testing water" with me.
Anyway, this has nothing to do with the case.
TS, sorry to hear about your case. We still need to hear from Paul though. Its nice of you to go to all the trouble to do the transaction.

Not the first time I ever seen/experienced.
Last time, I post a camera for sale, a guy SMS me to deal that day at 6:30pm.
And when I prepared to go, at 6:00 pm, he SMSed me he back out.
With no reason....
