the only way i ever see buying links working for seo reasons if you have on page seo already done (kw density, title, etc, etc) and the right anchor text and the authority of a site. As I stated i try to buy links from sites that sell 15 or less links per page. I personally check that before I buy. I also check for unique c-class(3rd set of ip adress numbers) and I check thier backlinks... everything is checked befor i buy anything. If I can't check, i won't buy it, period. BUT, i also do link exchanges. mixing them both (one way and reciprocal) is the way i'll go from now on.
