    Doing it that way really weeds out the dreamers.
    absolutely, JD. the problem is that they believe that since you are a foreigner, of any stripe, you can afford to extend them generosity. and bear one thing in mind..Dominicans really look out for their own. if you do a favor for one guy, you would hope it is held in confidence, between you both. not so. he is going to tell everyone who will listen that you are generous, and they should go and take advantage of you. so, as you said, if someone else wants something, they get it when i see all the money. otherwise, you will never see all the money.

    You may have misunderstood what I wrote. I have to have payment in hand before I will even order the item.

    I learned that years ago when a phone was lost after it arrived at the courier (business mail) and disappeared.

    I ended up eating that one and switched couriers.

    i agree with you. i learned that the hard way. i ordered a phone which was advertised on EBAY as being unlocked. when it got here, it was locked. if it had been a Sprint, or AT and T, and it was below Android 8, my guy could have unlocked it. turns out it was Boost Mobile, and nobody here can crack those. so, i had to eat it. i solved the matter by getting the same make and model phone, which was unlocked, but had fallen and broken the screen. i used the two to make one. then the prick tried to beat the price down, with some crap about ''original''. i was letting him have a phone which sells for 10k pesos for 3500. i told him to bugger off and go buy somebody else's phone. asshat still has no phone.

    It goes to show the quality of persons you are subjecting yourself to. Why do this to yourself at your advanced age? This is not a good equation.
