Avoid Getting SCAMMED Buying a Your New Sony Wii System
This is fine as at least if you want an Wii the chances are you will get one. However, this causes a problem. There are scammers out there to fleece you out of your hard earned cash.
While browsing the Sony Wii listings I noticed an alarming amount of auctions simply selling a picture of an wii or an email address or simply a web link. The worst thing was some of these items were bid up to over $600. Obviously there are going to be some very disappointed people out there and this will only damage eBay's reputation. However, the listings clearly state what the item is and some would say if you are stupid enough not to read the item properly there is no wrong doing. I would have to disagree as the titles are misleading and it is a scam.
So what can I do to avoid being scammed?
- First of all make sure you read the item description carefully, especially the title.
- Check the seller’s feedback, if they have made their feedback private this is a sure sign of a scam. Also a low rating should be approached with caution.
- If the eBay account is new be suspicious.
- Check the sellers other items for sale. Most sellers will only have one Wii for sale. More than one could be a sign of a scam. Unless the seller is registered as a business seller.
- Use the 'ask seller a question' feature. A genuine seller will respond.
- Use PayPal for payment. This protects you as a buyer.
- Use common sense. If it looks to good to be true it probably is....
As long as you are careful you should have no problems and you will get that Wii system!
