Remember to check the feedback for the seller of the item that interests you. Even after 3 1/2 years of purchasing from eBay, I don't always heed what I say: Check feedback, check feedback, check feedback. On my very first eBay purchase I let my heart (desire) lead my head and honestly didn't know what I was doing. However, I am dealing with a seller now for an item that I have yet to receive and no correspondence until I brought a paypal case against her. Her negative feedback is for things I just listed. I acted on heart (desire) again, and not with my head. I did it with a 'best offer' bid, and I wouldn't be in this hassle if I had looked at her feedback before a counteroffer I submitted. Then, it was too late. I saw the feedback before I paid, but being an honest buyer, and not wanting to have a negative feedback for nonpayment, I paid. I hoped that I would be one of the positive feedback purchasers. Not so. I now feel like it would be better to get a negative feedback than the hassle I am going through to get my item, and may never get.
Again, Check Feedback
