Ebay scammers think there's a sucker born every minute. Make sure they're the ones that get licked!
The world's always had its share of crooks, outlaws, pirates and highway robbers.
Today's knaves and scoundrels don't need to hide in the bushes pouncing on unsuspecting travelers...They simply do their pouncing online.
Use common sense to avoid getting your goose cooked by eBay burglars:
1. Read carefully the entire description the seller has put in the description box. If you are you still have questions about the item ask the seller a question in the upper right corner of the screen - it says ASK SELLER A QUESTION.
2. You can ask if the movie plays well or is it extremely used. Does the furniture item have and scratches or flaws? What sort of shipping time can you expect for delivery?
3. If the seller takes more than a day or two to answer your question - or doesn't answer you at all - you can assume something is rotten in Denmark.
3. Look at the seller's feedback rating. If there are some negative feedbacks, you should browse through the sellers feedbacks and look at what the unsatisfied buyer said about the item the received.
4.Make sure you check the shipping cost before you bid. MANY EBAY NEWBIES forget to do this. An honest seller will always tell you in the listing how much it costs to ship your item.
5. If by chance, your item arrives broken or damaged because of mishandling by the postal service, do not get angry and immediately leave bad feedback. Contact the seller and ask for a refund or a replacement.
6. If you get no reply from the seller or the seller refuses to refund, you should leave bad feedback so he can not scam other trusting buyers.
7. Be smart about who you buy from and let the joke be on the jokers.
