I've only been ripped off once. I bought a metal detector. The guy had a shaky reputation. If I remember correctly, about 10 out of every 1000 of his items got negative feedback, mostly for items not recieved. I decided to give it a shot anyway and see what I would get for my time. The answer: I got completely ripped off. I was out $50. I emailed that guy like, 10 times a day for a week. He replied at some point said he was sorry and asked me to select the color of metal detector I wanted and he would ship it out. He never did. I'd say the best way to protect yourself is check the seller's reputation. I normally don't buy from anybody with feedback that's less than 85% posotive. Also, beware of sellers with like, 2 million items for sale. They sell that shit out of a warehouse and never touch or see it. They sell more than they could ever keep track of. Customer service is extremely poor. I find that there are also alot of shady sellers from china, selling fake or over priced antiques and bootlegged anime. I tend to be wary of sellers from china. Also, if you think a deal is too good to be true, it just might be a rip off. But you also make sure to read the item description VERY CAREFULLY, I usually re-read it at least twice. Make sure you know the auction terms and conditions. I don't buy something if it doesn't have a return policy.

I did once. I was buying some limited edition Magic the Gathering cards, some really old set. It was 5 decks, each their own color, so about 200 cards.
I paid about $40 for it and they never sent anything and I couldn't contact the guy after, either. I never bought cards from ebay after.

Nope never ever and I buy everything from there. You just need to know who to buy from and who to stay away from.

i ordered a DVD for capeta last christmas... the seller sent me an email saying that the translator was sick, so he wanted me to wait for another week... I was cool with it... i replied him nicely saying that it's ok even it it's late coz all i want is the DVD, no hurry...
A few weeks went by... still no DVD,... i checked his Ebay account again.... and it was already inactive...
so beware guys.... don't believe the seller 100%... some of them just a pure bastard....
