Post safe pgm buying?
Whats the best way to buy from overseas? I read that escrow.com is not safe? someone said that there was attempted activity on his account..

So is there any safe way to buy? any other 3rd party that will hold the cash for you? Cuz im in discussions to get a pgm from a guy i got to know off msn..its a bit worrying to just transfer e money first.

Any suggestions?
thanks!

I'm getting a PGM from Hong Kong right now. I went through escrow.com. If you don't use a credit card you won't have to worry about people attempting to use your account. I sent a check.

The escrow.com fees were less than doing an international wire transfer. When I get the guitar next week I have 2 days to accept it or it goes back and the seller will not get paid.

I never do private party purchases overseas, so I wouldn't know.

xjustice09x - what are you getting?

I'm the one who had the attempted activity, and Eddie and xjustice are right, if I had it to do again, I would either have directly transferred to Mae or sent a check or MO to escrow.com - unfortunately, that wasn't something I could do at the time, I was travelling, long story.

But, Mae is definitely a secure place to buy from, they obviously do a ton of sales worldwide, so they would need to be. I was very happy with the service, and I'd say they are a great place to get a guitar from.

Also, xjustice, sweet on the 500, you'll love it :D
