eBay – good when it works

I’m learning the hard way about what not to do on eBay. I’m sure the guy I’m trying to buy off is doing something dodgy. Yes, I shouldn’t have bid on a first time seller, yes I should have organised an escrow account, yes I should have confirmed every last bloody detail about the item, and yes I should have checked shipping price before bidding… Lessons learnt hey. At least I haven’t paid anything for the item yet. Last email has been sent before I fork out the USD$20 for a mediator. Bugger.
