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 f**k 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 s**t proper and has a tracking number and sends the item as described then buyer can't scam.
