This is a reminder that we here at ENI can not get directly involved in someone's trade. Any trade you enter into on these boards you do at your own risk. We suggest that before you enter into a trade with anyone you don't know, that you ask for references, or look for feedback from other board members. We also highly recommend, that after you conduct any trade that you leave feeback about that person in the trader feedback section of this site, whether it's positive or negative.

A footnote I'd like to add to this topic:
We all need to be cautious with any trade with a person UNDER the legal age of majority in THEIR jurisdiction. This is because in many jurisdictions, a contract is not considered binding with a person under the age of majority-hence a child--regardless of the reasons entered into.
Any adult person here making a trade with someone who is a teen, even if they do not tell you they are under the legal age, runs the potential risk of being ripped off and they'd be unable to do anything about it.
You will have NO legal recourse against them, or their parents, because ( usually) the law will state that the onus is upon you to know who you are dealing with.

In addition to references, it might be wise to ask the age of the person you trade with, and if necessary seek permission from their parents to go through with the trade. That or forego the trade and deal only with legal age adults.

This is NOT to say that any and/or all teens will rip you off, but rather that everyone understand the realities and potential problems that can arise.
The best policy for all concerned is to communicate, be honest and proceed cautiously, until trust is gained.
