Yeah I don't buy **** off ebay.
About 1/2 the transactions have been poor. Either the item was in pretty bad shape, the shipping took quite long, or whatever.
The only time I was at a total loss was once I bought a CD for $14 and never received it.
Ebay is so full of scammers. I don't know why people would spend more than say $50 [if even that if they are really struggling with money]
The most I have ever spent on an ebay transaction was about $30.
And yes, if the English has weird mistakes that anglophones just do not make, it is probably some overseas scammer.
