ebay has badly degraded over the last 12 months.
Badly/fraudulently described goods etc.
To be fair there are still some reliable dealers/sellers out there, but also many scammers.
Anyway, back to the word/music games
No, I have to disagree I'm afraid. Not everyone is worldlywise and sometimes even the experienced can be caught out, so I would always initially feel sorry for anyone caught by a scammer, although some of the stories that I have read do defy belief and you end up thinking "How could you have fell for that", but we all have off days
Our son Simon fell for a Mobile phone Scam. He SHOULD have known better. Now he checks and double checks. I raised the point because we are currently looking for another Commuter Mini RV. In the last week there has been at least 10 Scammed Motorhomes for sale. They have Buy-It-Now at stupidly LOW prices lower down in the text to contact a certain email address. They are new sellers/ebayers and so have zero feedback. YET, people are bidding.
