    Default Buyer beware

    I would like to remind all my Spyder Ryder friends that just because someone on this forum describes something for sale, do your due diligence to ensure that the item is properly described as to Year, Condition etc.

    Always good advise. Don't let the stars in your eyes obscure your vision! Look closely first. Then let the stars shine!

    Trust but verify is a good way to look at the situation. The site cannot be responsible for vetting each and every ad. We are trusting the knowledge of the members to be careful before taking a long trip or putting out a lot of money for something that is not as advertised.

    We have not had any major complaints so far, and the ads have kind of policed on their own.

    We are thinking of putting up a "sticky" as a warning...but common sense would dictate to be careful anyway.

    I've found in the past a good question to start with is, "Why are you selling such & such?" The way the answer is presented can be an early clue as to the authenticity of the sale.
