    Little something about ebay and stores!

    Fraudsters launch auctions on eBay or TradeMe with very low prices and no reservations especially for high priced items like watches, computers or high value collectibles. They received payment but never delivers, or delivers an item that is less valuable than the one offered, such as counterfeit, refurbished or used. Some fraudsters also create complete webstores that appear to be legitimate, but they never deliver the goods. In some cases, some stores or auctioneers are legitimate but eventually they stopped shipping after cashing the customers' payments.

    If you didn't already know this, it's good info for you guys, so be aware this stuff is out there!

    I was watching a documentary on ebay. I think it was about a year old. Anyway, it was 2 hours long and in the course of the show, they followed these 2 fellows who were scammed exactly as you mention.

    They got together with some others and went to court. They went to court and won, although they did receive any money. The guy had none. So basically you are at the mercy of these scammers.

    You just have to be careful when dealing with eBay. Most of the people are good on there and mean well though.
