I thought i would share this with you chaps as this is one of the problems encountered too often in my opinion. Just been having a conversation with John casino as i stumbled across his site the other day , there was a certain item i was interested in and asked him about shipping to the UK and mentioned that i wanted to pay via paypal. I got a reply saying that the only way he would accept paypal was for me to send him the cash as a friend / family payment . As so things are secure his end , well that's all well for him but if anything goes wrong for me i lose my cash. I said can't i just pay via regular payment and pay his 4% paypal fees aswell. He said yes but he would need references of who i have bought from etc?! , so i sent him the info. But it was not good enough and he needed to contact one of the sellers in the next 4 days for varification. 4-5 emails were exchanged in total and i feel put out by it all as i am an honest bloke and i was treated as not so just because i don't live in the U.S , this is the 2nd time i have encountered this type of attitude , the other was from e-militaria who also acted the same way. All i can say is that it has left me feeling disappointed and if this is the future of internet militaria collecting then god help us.
