Now eBay has made it so that negative feedback cannot be given. Sellers and buyers alike are leaving in droves over this piece of questionable "progress".

Oh, and if you're a seller and used Paypal as your means of payment, be wary. If a buyer disputes the transaction with Paypal, your account will very likely be charged back if the claim was made within (I believe) 45 days. There have also been frequent complaints of after a seller's account has been charged back, that the account is frozen. We've been hearing horror stories left and right in the last few months with this little gem.

I have never sold on E-bay and have not bought in a year or more. I would not buy if negative feed back was blocked. That is the ONLY way to guess whether you are buying from a reputable dealer. As a buyer, my feedback is perfect.

Is anyone thinking about bidding on this? It is for a wonderful cause. I need to save up a few more of my penny jars. wink.gif

Are others getting a tremendous number of phishing attempts from E-bay and Pay-pal knock off's? I have a link to report attempts to Pay-pal but not one for E-bay. In my case they went from one a month at most to daily! Since I have used neither for at least two years, I reply to nothing.

Patch, It has been along time since I have received any attempts. When you go to Ebay, there is a small banner in the top right hand corner the says "Ebay Security & Resolution Center. When that page comes up, on the left side there is a topic "Protect your account", under it is "Reporting Phishing & Spoof". Hope this helps.

Thank you, I have not been there for a long time. I have had 4 attempts recently and if they are not reported, they can not be stopped.

After the holidays, I'm going to start looking on there for a second turntable, probably a Technics SL-1200. I'm wanting a second table to perhaps give to a relative as possibly a late Christmas present, or possibly as their big Christmas present if I can find a good enough deal for one that's not been abused by a DJ in a night club.

In the past I used ebay rather often as a buyer and sometime as a seller too. As a buyer I used because I could buy a lot of things for good prices. As a seller I used because I've got a littlebit money for things I would have cast off otherwise...
But by and by I had to notice that almost exclusively professional traders work there. The prices are "dead" and it isn't a difference to buy something by ebay or by a local dealer. OK, one difference is existing: I can grab the local dealer "by the sruff of the neck" if he try to sell me a garbage... If I buy by ebay it isn't so simple...
I gave up to buy and sell there.
