Of course, no one can predictrepparttar 117015 number of arbitrage opportunities which will occur. Suffice to say that with thousands of sporting events occurring all year round, there is an abundance of arbitrage opportunities. Is there a possibility, however slim, of default by a sportsbook?

If you have testimonials and feedback from happy customers, tellrepparttar world. It's true that Richardson had these advantages, too, but he is newsworthy simply because he is an exception and notrepparttar 117013 rule. Generally,repparttar 117014 feedback system works very well.

If you have special credentials, let buyers know. For example, perhaps you are a nurse who sells nutritional supplements or you are an antique dealer who has been inrepparttar 117015 business for 30 years and can prove it.

This kind of credibility is much more reassuring than a one page website and a free hotmail address.

2. Credit cards arerepparttar 117016 safest way to purchase anything. These days, it is possible for most entrepreneurs to accept credit cards throughrepparttar 117017 auction sites or 3rd party processors, even if they don't have their own merchant account. Go even further and explainrepparttar 117018 safety of credit cards to your buyers.

In my one and only personal experience with auction fraud, there were dozens of other sellers who never received their merchandise. Those who paid by credit card, like I did, received their money back. Those who paid with cash or cashier's checks simply lost their money.

eBay has fraud protection, but it only covers $175.

3. Escrow is a great safeguard, although it is most practical for higher priced sales. It works like this:

a. The buyer sendsrepparttar 117019 purchase price torepparttar 117020 escrow company, who then verifiesrepparttar 117021 funds b. The escrow company notifiesrepparttar 117022 seller who shipsrepparttar 117023 merchandise torepparttar 117024 buyer c. Whenrepparttar 117025 buyer is satisfied,repparttar 117026 money is released torepparttar 117027 seller d. Ifrepparttar 117028 buyer isn't satisfied, he can returnrepparttar 117029 merchandise torepparttar 117030 seller and receive his money back. These kinds of conditions are usually specified in advance. That is, "I changed my mind" usually isn't grounds for return ofrepparttar 117031 merchandise. It normally has to be misrepresented in some way for a buyer return.

According to news stories, one of Richardson's buyers sent a registered check for $20,000. That money is lost for good. Ifrepparttar 117032 buyer had been careful enough to use an escrow company that loss would not have occurred. If you sell expensive items, always mention this option to buyers. Even if they choose not to use it, they will know you have nothing to hide.
