I haven't been on ebay for very long, but in the short time that I have, the one thing I have learnt very quickly
is to ensure that you read every word of an ad very carefully.
I myself have not yet experienced anything negative about buying or selling on ebay, and that's because I am
very cautious. But a couple of my friends and even a couple of family members have made mistakes with
buying certain things and that has simply been because they didn't read the entire ad properly or for that matter
did not heed the warnings that ebay constantly make about who they deal with and what they are buying.
Ebay does a wonderful job of ensuring that all buyers and sellers can safely and securely buy and sell products
so that the customer will always be happy.
One of the warnings they give is about dealing with Western Union or Money Gram. One of my friends
unfortunately was ripped off $200 simply because she did not read ebays warnings.
A family member purchased an item that he thought was the real thing and he ended up getting what was
simply a list of companies that sell the actual product. Both of these incidences was simply because the
customer did not read the ads correctly and therefore didn't get what they thought they were getting.
So, just a little bit of helpful advice and that is the please make sure when purchasing on ebay that
you do read entire ads very carefully, that way you wont get caught out.
Thankyou ebay for doing such a wonderful job of ensuring that we can all shop on ebay safely.
Keep up the good work.
