Do not let your heart rule your head when using EBAY.
Read the rules carefully as they are not compiled to help people who lose money.
Like the car trade, there may be no such thing as a bargain.
*helloburt* WILL NOT REFUND ON RETURNED ITEMS.
MARK REYNOLDS 59 WHATTON ROAD. KEGWORTH DE74 2DJ
I lost money recently to *helloburt* who promised a refund for a lens which I sent back, and then promptly sold it again to someone else under a different number.
The advice I can give is DO NOT PAY BY CQ or Postal order. Be aware that many have learned to their cost that feedback does not indicate honesty or that seller is a great guy.
Even EBAY is involved in shill bidding. One strange thing you will notice that if a serious negative is left for a seller or a buyer, it is immediately followed by glowing positives from those who are lucky enough to think they have a bargain.
It is almost impossible to recover money from a private trader. Even if a court finds in your favor this is no guarantee you will ever recover your money.
A WORD ABOUT INSURANCE. So you use Insurance or buy extra insurance?
Item goes missing. When you make a claim who gets the money. Item is still lost.
So, someone loses out.
