Insist on RECORDED or signed for on Delivery postage with insurance (especially with more expensive items . The cost of an extra pound or two could save a lot of grief later).Normal post? GET Proof of posting.
Always ask sellers for a VERIFIABLE Postal Address and do your best to check it out. (phone book ,internet etc.)
