No longer a eBay virgin :(

Tuesday, November 28 2006

Sadly, I had (just had to) to buy something from eBay yesterday – a very specific Xmas gift request was received. I have resisted for so long cos I am soooo suspicion about the whole eBay / Paypal thing and being inundated by spam & phishing attempts.

The first of the PS3 got sold yesterday for the Buy It Now price … to a scammer. “please send the item to a consulate in Africa” response. From UK and where the post code, street name and tel.number did not match up.

eBay does not seem to have a function to report obvious scams so the option is to wait 4 days (non-payment) and then get the fees back from eBay.

    Grr… I’m yet to buy something online. There are so many CD’s I want to buy that I possibly can’t find in BitTorrent or LimeWire. My dad just won’t give me his credit card. Maybe I should just “borrow” it *evil smile*
