I did mistakenly read the APO as PO. My mistake and I know better and the difference between the two.....my fault. Thank you for pointing out what I overlooked. Reading on this darn phone can be a pain sometimes.
I appreciate your offer to insure but I don't need it. Paypal isn't fool proof or a guarantee. I do investigations for a living and have little faith in much other than cash. However, since cash is not a good option in many circumstances, we have to go with the next best option...and frankly, for someone who has input no information in their profile, named themselves after "Jack Webb" aka John Preston or Preston Wood, and has three posts, etc. I'm going to pass.
He might be a great guy and honest. But I have seen a few folks get burned on here lately and seen way too many in my line of work get caught off guard and lose gear or money because they didn't follow their gut.
Thanks for your prior service Ian.
