I look at the winning bidders feedback. If he's been a bidder for many years and has almost no(t) winning bids I smell something might be up. If he's got a large number of feed backs then I just move on. I see a few guns that are sold and then returned to be relisted or just never paid for and relisted.
I sold a loader on EBay a few months ago. GA was listed in the title, listed n the description and in the listing specifics, a total of five times. Want to venture a guess why the bidder wanted to return the loader. Wrong GA. he was looking for. My 12 was not the 28 he was looking for. Listing was a no return listing but I did agree to take it back if he shipped it back in the same condition. He bitched that I should pay shipping both ways to which I refused. He gave me a bad feedback. I contacted EBay and they actually stood up for the seller for once. Told the buyer it was accurately described and terms were clearly listed twice. Removed his negative feedback. Might have helped he had about five feed backs and I have several thousand. He is now a banned buyer.
There are a lot of bad sellers and buyers out there. The dumb ones you have to work with but the crooked ones you just want to avoid.
