Honestly if you send a guy with 0 feedback $300+ you deserve to lose your money.

When I saw these listed warning bells went off big time. New ebay member lists identical items with the exact same photo in each auction. Lots of bidding later he has people's money and he is long gone.

You really need to watch out for zero feedback sellers, especially when it looks too good to be true on the price.



Just FYI, having the same photograph for multiple items is done all the time, even here on the EE, it is by no means a give away to a scam.

How much you want to bet people still buy goods from this guy without checking his feedback.

ebay has become a fraud breeding ground. This guy just made an easy $1200+. I will say and continue to say FU(# ebay. I only use them for very limited things and only because sometimes that's the only place I can find things, like old lathe parts.

Now where would one be able to find these quality dealers?

<­BR>



WIZZO

BTW, I don't go anywhere near Ebay. My mom does around Christmas, but she usually isn't buying anything that expensive.

I'll use ebay to unload old pc parts and stuff like that.
Buying a high dollar value item there? no thanks.

I agree. In my several purchases from vendors in EE, I have had nothing but great service and results. Buy from EE.

There really is some stuff on ebay you can't get anywhere else. I bought a Valmet 62 bolt there. No complaints.



I don't know what the people that bid on those aimpoints were thinking though. Can you say "warning signs"???

E-Bay can be great and it can be horrible. You just have to be careful. I picked up a complete lower dash for my 70' Z28 on E-bay for $26. It was in perfect shape and was an original GM. It could have cost me near $500 otherwise.
