    well, today i called up a few dealers in the US for a couple parts, and there was one that really stuck out to me. in a bad way wich is kinda unfortunate.

    i was going to buy 35 dollars worth and they tell me that paypall does not work with Canada-US transactions.(ive baught dozzens of items off of ebay and other dealer sites from the US using paypal.
    this dealer then wanted me to mail in money...

    yes, i am Canadian, and i may be over reacting...i dont know, but this just semmed a bit suspiciouse.

    am i correct about this?

    Don't worry about it. He's the third cousin the boss had to hire! rotfl
    Americans are not like that. If we can help, let us know.

    his paypal is probably frozen because of a disputed claim. only way he can do buisness is cash. not a good sign.

    if anyone would like to know who this dealer is, i would be more than willing to send you a personal message, but i dont want to post it on an open board.

    This is a bit off thread. On jan 16th i got hit with id theft thru my debit mastercard. Almost $800. Went to the credit union the next day. They had me sign some forms and took care of it. I took about 5 days total. They cut up my card and issued a new one. They gave me credit`s for all the overdraft charges.

    In the end, i did not lose any funds and it all cost me nothing. Just a bit of inconvience. Asked her if i should drop my $500. Over draft option. She said no, i was better off with it. End of story!
