If they have positive feedback in EE Thread and actively post in the OTHER discussion forums (General, AR15, AK47, etc), the chance of a problem is very minimal. This is from statistical analasys of the people who have gotten ripped off.
It is like a big family here whan you participate, people will drive hundreds of miles to help another in need. We also sell stuff to each other. MANY Good Deals to be found here, with better assurance and service than I would give shops local to me. Just check the feedback and HoS on an individual before buying, and you should have no problems.
"High Risk" is a non-team member account with under 100 posts, usually under 6 months old, who has posted 75%+ in the EE forums.
I don't promote post whoring, I would like to see more support the site, but I am pointing out what the majority of the problems have involved as far as a "member profile".
If in doubt, ask for references from other ARF members!
It is also your option to not do business here, we aren't eBay.
