    Noted, but I just don't see this as being as big of a problem as cato was making it out to be. Then again, I don't post much in FS/T anymore because I don't buy or sell as much these days, so maybe I'm not the most qualified person to comment on the matter. I have faith that if it becomes an issue, the mods will address it.

    Here's an example . I'm searching for "GTX 1070" and that thread is a hit. If the title didn't hit, then that list of sold items did. He doesn't have 1070s for sale anymore.

    Something I noticed in the rules, about avoiding scams, "do not accept a cell phone as a phone number". A lot of people don't have land lines anymore, I know I haven't had a landline for about 10 years now.

    I have tried searching for an answer to my question with no luck...

    How long should I wait after sending payment before reporting an issue to paypal for not receiving what I payed for? This person has basically dropped off of the forums and has not responded to his email...

    Really up to you; your assessment of the seller's character/reputation, your own risk propensity, and maybe a pinch of leniency because "things happen." I think it's completely fair to open a claim after 2 weeks if you still haven't received the product/s and there's been no effort by the seller to communicate with you. If the seller is new or has little heatware, I'd consider keeping him on a shorter leash with no more than 1 week without communication.
