I was looking to buy from an online dealer, but knew nothing about them, so I looked them up on BBB (Better Business Bureau). Good way to do a quick check:

Pkato re: BBB

The BBB is a membership program paid for by the Merchants who sell. Especially on-line, one should be very wary. But not all are bad, by a long shot, but it is no guarantee...

to use for purchases...just another tool to use. I try not to buy from anyone I haven't bought from before or at the very least know someone who bought from the seller and gives them the thumbs up...nothing better than going in person to the shop, touch, feel, fire, etc...but not possible now (for me anyway)

I can only hope I didn't sound like I was. I was just suggesting also. Sorry if it came off that way!
