Although there are a lot of names of "unreliable" Collectors on the
Internet and there are various sites were you can find blacklists, I myself have
up to now no bad experience with swapping coins via the Internet. On the
contrary, in one of the blacklists was the name of a Collector with whom I made
a good deal, and his name is therefor removed from the list after my request.
I don't mean to say that it doesn't happen. There are no doubt people who will
take advantage of the situation and will not return coins. However one should also
take into consideration the delay the mail can have in some Countries before someone is
marked as "unreliable". I myself did send some Coins to the Philippines
which arrived only after four Month. It can also happen that Coins get lost in
the mail, but I think that both Collectors should then be able to come to an
agreement to replace the missing Coins.
It's everybody right to warn other Collectors if you have had a bad experience.
However until I had such an experience myself, I will not make a blacklist on my
site until I have had a bad experience my self. But on some of the sites I'm referring to in my site list, you can find
blacklists. I myself don't think its wise to make a deal with a Collector from
one of the blacklists. Forewarned is forearmed!!
Underneath are a number of links to specific blacklist pages but keep in mind that I'm not responsible
for the content of these lists and I just want to share the information on these pages.
