It has came to my attention that whilst there are so many honest people out there on ebay, there are still a few scammers who wish only to take your money & for you recieve nothing in return, trust me it has happened to me twice!! I highly recomend that you fully check out the sellers feedback to find out what type of seller they are before bidding or even ask a question through ask seller a question link on the listed item if unsure, but do not take this as gospel as the last one that I purchased had 100% feed back! there are also people who hijack innocent ebayers accounts and use them for there own scam of taking money! and remember never send an email if asked to do so in the listing as it could be a hijacked account & the safest way to pay is pay pal at least you will recieve the money back for your item that was not recieved! but remember try to contact the seller 1st by email or phone if all else fails only then can you open a dispute through pay pal at least then you will be protected no matter what is said in the dispute by the seller for example the 1st one i had said it had been sent so i dropped the dispute being the trusting person that i am & i recieved nothing i lost my money! Don't drop the claim unless you recieve your payment back or if the item arrives then it would be fraudulent for you to keep the case open.
Good luck and safe shopping!
