I've been scammed many-a-time via ebay and paypal. Sending payment via paypal, they didnt send item, paypal wouldnt refund my money. Another time I sent a money order, never recieved item from some guy in Syracuse, NY, ebay wouldnt do anything to help. I've sold stuff some stuff and recieved payment on Paypal, like $150, then the other party told paypal someone who wasnt "authorized" to be on their paypal used it, so paypal took the money back out of my paypal, nothing I could do about it. I bought a program on Ebay and the seller assured me they'd show me how to use it, after purchasing and run around for weeks trying to get help, I filed a complaint with paypal for a refund, the seller threatened to get their "lawyers" on me.... blah blah. I no longer use paypal, i always send money by certified mail, and I dont ship anything until I got cash in hand. I only deal with people within a days drive from me. Everytime I list anything on craigslist i get the "You item bring me great benefit, I send sum of 1000,0,000.44$$$ US DOLLAR ($$$$$), you wire me sum of subtracted change!" ... Remember, if a deal is too good to be true, it is. You're not gonna score a year old harley for $3000. No one is gonna sell you a mint 69 Camaro for 10% of what its worth. USE COMMON SENSE!
