Ebay, How I nearly got tricked out of 170

Written by Stephen Hill

I am not sure how many people have had bad experiences on Ebay, I hope not too many. I was having a great time on there until some man tried to defraud me out of 170.

I had been buying and selling on Ebay for a number of months without any problems at all. If I ever bought anything that cost over 100, I would offer to meetrepparttar seller somewhere, normally just offrepparttar 148849 motorway and this was working very well. I managed to pick up some real bargains and also managed to offload some of my unwanted items which I either had no interest in anymore or that I had no longer a need for.

Good things apparantly have to come to an end and unfortunately it did with Ebay.

I was looking to purchase a mobile phone and saw an advert for a buy it now phone withrepparttar 148850 asking price low but not extremely low.

There was a mobile number to phone if I had any questions. I therefore rang him, his name was Tony and asked himrepparttar 148851 general type questions. He sounded and seemed really nice, however stated that he was unable to meet me as he was unable to drive as he had not past his test.

His house was a long way from where I lived and reluctantly I agreed to pay via a bank transfer. He assured me he would postrepparttar 148852 phone, that very day via Royal Mail Special Delivery to arrive by 11amrepparttar 148853 next morning. He seemed very genuine, they always do your thinking and that was that.
