    Don't use an escrow service outside of the one available inside e-Bay...

    Many times a fraud ring will set up their own escrow service, and get free stuff from people on eBay.

    Many, many, many fake escrow services that suck much more that eBay.

    especially if they talk about being owed/founded by Internet Escrow Services, Fidelity National Financial, or Micro General
