erm, right.... but what about those people shelling out $2k for a synth? Tends to be a little more noticeable then.

It's different now. All Ebay purchases paid with PayPal are protected 100% for buyers. If the seller screws you, you get 100% of your cash back regardless of what is in their account. It also makes it really easy for buyers to scam sellers though.Toris wrote:Don't be under the illusion that paypal will look after you if you get shafted. I lost £500 in an ebay transaction 2 years ago. When paypal had finally completed their inefficient and laborious investigation, all they recovered was what was left in his account (£70) as he’d spent most of it while they were fucking about.
The seller can do everything right as you said, and the buyer could claim the item is not as described, PayPal rules in buyers favor, buyer sends back a different item or no item at all in a box with Delivery Confirmation, PayPal refunds buyer, buyer has cash and item, seller is SOL.plikestechno wrote:If seller does their shit proper and has a tracking number and sends the item as described then buyer can't scam.
