It's a minefield out there with the amount of scam listings. Buyers need to be vigilant, and if it looks too good to be true it probably is.

One of the issue is that with the lack of correspondence that is permissible on the phone or otherwise, this is rife for scammers, since the new ebay rules came in last year.
