Used Parts - Buyer Beware

I have enjoyed a perfect record of buying used parts from Pelicanites for many years, until the recession hit. In 2009 I had a rash of rip-offs, all 930 engine parts. The injury spans from simple non-delivery to sending pure junk that has been cannibalized and nothing more than a worthless shell remains. I just got hit again.

What methods do you use to protect yourself? I do credit cards when possible, paypal is useless and cash, well we know how that ends.
