DavidSW uses gmail?

Hi all: iím emailing back-and-forth with DavidSW staff members about an anticipated purchase. I noticed that the email addresses they use are gmail. For those that have had experience emailing with David SW, is that accurate? It seemed a Bit low brow for such a amazing, high-end seller and just wanted to be careful. Thanks for any info.

It is odd considering he could have an email at his domain for like $30 a year lol.

Yes I get all off that and have no worries about DavidSW. This isnít an inquiry about Davidís legitimacy or trustworthiness. Rather, I wanted to ensure that he and his staff used gmail (ie, his account hadnít been hacked) as I had expected domain emails in light of his exceptional, unquestionable reputation.

Always smart to be careful. Just too many scams out there in today's world.

Took me 2 emails & 2 calls to get ahold of you. I offered to drive the 2 hours to you, watch was sold & you said you would contact me if another one comes available. What's funny is a week later, you had the exact model I was looking for advertised on your site. No call, no email. Thank you & have a great evening.

What lame post dude. Commentary on DavidSW wasnít the point of this string. Heís such a legit seller. Youíve obviously got very little experience buying. With under 50 posts here on TRF, great work popping on here and criticizing one of the indisputable great sellers, and on a post that wasnít even about that ó looking forward to your future posts!

I'm so sorry that my post isn't up to your standards. It is my attempted experience with a "trusted seller".
Lol. Thank you for the lesson. I'll look forward to your future posts also. ��

. Just didnít want my post about simply gmail usage to be hijacked into a DavidSW critique (criticism) string, when heís a beloved and honest and righteous seller in a risky world.

Fair post OP.

The fact DSW replied shows itís not the first time and it provides good feedback for a retailer.

If I didnít know of DSW already, Iíd ask the question too.

I would never, in a hundred years, believed that a gmail address was indicative of a possible scam. I hope my aol email doesn't create a scam alert for someone.

If you’re doing $2.5 - $4.5(EST) a year in high risk transactions targeted by fraudsters, cloners, etc... I’d expect a private server and branded email. The fact DSW offers the option should validate the need he recognized, which is what a mature and successful business owner always scans for. I think the gmail is simply just easy and likely a grandfathered address so others can have sign in and the g-suite access. But that’s a guess and really nobody’s biz.

But think about it from a noobs perspective.

This is exactly right. Think about getting an email from john.tourneau@gmail.com. Or sally.wempe@gmail.com. Or Susie-Tiffany&Co@gmail.com. Itíd be worth asking, ďhey Wempe, do you use gmail?Ē Quite an obvious inquiry I think.
