Re: The Bad Side Of EEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeebay
Futonman...WOW, I've heard similar stories about eBay.
Did you contact eBay for their help in apprehending these low-lifes? They might have a lead on the sellers.
A gentleman responded elsewhere in this thread about his eBay laptop purchases...both turned out to be stolen. Seems as though the thieves failed to fully delete the real owners' contact information...some people demonstrate their intelligence with such grace, don't-cha think? He contacted the real owners, then followed up with eBay. The rightful owners got their their laptops back, he got his money back, and one of the loser thieves was found, arrested and went to jail! Doesn't that story warm your heart?
I've read many mixed reviews regarding any auction purchase and the overriding theme from most is... be VERY VERY careful.
Sorry about your bad experiences...and thanks for the advice!
