Just wondering, did you ever get scammed on eBay? If so how?

I heard a lot before so I am just curious.

Yup, years ago. they were zero help in addressing the issue and that was my first and last time using it. I even used to shop on half.com and once they bought it I stopped shopping there as well.

no, I haven't.  I know what to watch out for, I know what my rights are from paypal/ebay, and I know how to file a credit card chargebacck to avoid paying for something that either didn't arrive or wasn't as described.  there's no reason to get taken advantage of on ebay.

so what do you watch out for? You mean prior to buying? Like their feedback?

I didn't get scammed, but I bought something and forgot to change my address on PayPal. It was my fault, so I didn't persue it when the item got returned to her.
