I tried to buy an item from a private seller via the play trade site in plenty of time for Xmas. Got an email that the sale had gone through. A week later wondering where it was I emailed the seller. He assured me it had been sent the day after ordering. I then logged on to find the sale had been 'declined' but no body had bothered to tell me, and the seller was lying about the despatch. Tried to complain about poor service but no one was interested. Left it very hard to get the item in time for Xmas.
