I have a RC on one of my books the requestor asks that if I'm unsure wether my book meets her conditions please PM her before refusing her request but how do I PM her ? I can't find any requestor info am I missing something?

No, you are not missing anything. Unless the requestor puts his/her PM address in the RC, you cannot PM without first accepting the request. A number of people refuse RCs for this reason -- they don't want to accept the request and then have to cancel or depend on the requestor to cancel if the RC cannot be met.

Thanks, Thats what I thought but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something IMO the book is in very good condition but requestor lists many unacceptable condition this book is heavily wish listed so I'm not really willing to loose a book and credit if she's not happy with  it any advise should I just deny her request or take my chances?

I deny in those cases. If they can't tell me clearly enough without a PM what they want, I'll pass. Especially if it's heavily wishlisted, you know someone else is waiting for it.

If it is heavily wishlisted and they did not include their user name to PM them in their RC, then, if in any doubt, deny the request and move on.

If the RC makes you uncomfortable, definately decline (espeically with so many other wishers waiting).
