    The only bad check I've ever rec'd in my life was one written on a closed account that the sender sent by mistake, and made right on when the mistake was brought to his attention.

    That being said, your next one could very well be your first one.

    If I can put an email address or phone number to a sign-on name of someone here, with a decent track record, stuff gets shipped when pmt arrives, whether its a check, money order, w/e. If I can't, it gets held until it clears my bank, whether its a check, money order, w/e. It also depends on my level of risk/exposure, on low $ items, I'll usually risk it and send it when pmt arrives, regardless of the sender, but I'm not in a position to afford to eat a substantial loss.

    Never had a problem. It was the same way when I was vending all over the country and taking checks from every state- only one bad check in 11 years -
    None on this site. Shooters are an honest bunch.....

    The only problems I have had is that I sent to goods to the address on the check and the guy had moved out of state. Only by luck I was able to retrieve the good and send them to the buyer.

    Did get scammed by someone else but thats another matter.

    I've never sold anything here, so no.

    I did have a payment I sent to Terry Jordan (Wall Chart Dry Firing Systems) go missing. He sent my my wall chart anyway, and I fired off another payment to him pronto. Five months later the Canadian post office delivered my original money order.
