Absolutely!...., about 8 months ago, my brain was so overtaken by my desire for an ipod that I stupidly wesern unioned some c?@* in florida a load of money for an ipod which, of course, never came.
a/ try to always use a credit card, u can charge back
b/ If u can't do that, don't spend over ?105 as ebay won't refund u more
c/ properly try to check out past feedback of seller etc
I am now v tentative about private selling on the internet (probably a good thing as I would otherwise be v broke thu buying too much).. However, I have had great deals on lower priced items like dvd's from both ebay and the amazon marketplace.. so don't lose heart. For example, just got Spaced series one on DVD for about ?10 from amazon...GREAT!! and arrived in 1 dayhttp://www.ipodlounge.com/forums/images/icons/icon10.gif
