I thought id place this info here because more people will see it. When trying to sell my kite to someone in a different country in order to ensure noone looses out i investigated a third party service called escrows. And discovered something interesting.
Dont use them! apparently there are 100's of people creating websites out there that look fine but are really scams to make shit loads of money off trusting unsuspecting people!!
So if selling kites to people in other countries use ebay or the like it protects us all!
