    There is this movie I have been wanting to own for some time now. I rented it when I was living in Japan. It is called Stereo Future. Great movie (highly recommended). Anyhow, since I am cheap I figure I would pick it up used on eBay or something. Here is my eBay history for this movie:

    1: Bid and won. Seller said they lost it and they refunded me.
    2: Bid and won. Seller never sent anything and never emailed me. I filed a claim and got my money back.
    3: Bid. Item was removed.

    This is over the course of about 6-7 months. I don't look for it as often as I should so chances are I missed one that would have turned out ok. But I have yet to get it after so many attempts.

    So, name something you have wanted that you just never seem to get, and when you do get close it slips through your fingers?

    I don't trust eBay. I've never felt right about bidding or selling something on it. I've never sold anything on craigslist, either, but I'd feel better buying or selling something from there.
