I sent you a PM (Private Message) so looks like you had the min of 5 posts already. Sent you the jist of how it works, negotiate a deal we are both happy with, exchange proper information, you send payment for that deal and once payment is confirmed via whatever method (typically paypal) I send whatever item(s) were part of the deal. Any questions let me know, also this announcement
and this sticky
are great guides to understanding how it all works. Any questions feel free to ask me or J Aura, the post above yours. He has more experience than I and since I know him personally, he's backing me up as I have lack of feedback except for my purchase of a mini that went exceedingly smooth recently, and it was also my first deal on here as well since, as in your case, was convinced by a friend to try it out. Only problem I have is all the deals and goodies I'd like but dont have the wallet to back up . . . yet
But ya any questions feel free to ask me or anyone around and let me know if you're still interested.
