Curious to see how many people actually fall for scams. Frankly the only scam, using that word loosely, I was ever a victim of was when a buyer that I had sold an $100 Amazon gift card (digital) to used the card then claimed to have never received it. It's actually a pretty common occurrence as thieves target digital gift cards for this reason. Due to this among other reasons I firmly believe that more buyers attempt to dupe sellers on eBay rather than vice versa. I do wish eBay had a minimum feedback option as if I chose to only sell to people with over 100 feedback then I'd be much less likely to sell to a dishonest buyer. It's far too easy for a buyer to claim to receive a brick in the package sent, with no form of recourse for the seller. There's a valuable lesson in being careful even as an honest seller. The second time I suspested a buyer to be duplicitous was when I was selling a certain new game console. The buyer offered to trade designer items for it, claiming their feedback was too low to sell them and would rather trade. My bs meter went off so I made sure that when they shipped the so-called designer items, I purposely held off on shipping the console (prepared to ship it had the items been legitimate). As expected the items were counterfeit. Not willing to pay to ship them back (not to mention how shipping counterfeits is illegal), I taught the scammer a lesson by keeping and discarding of these counterfeits. It was worth the attempt though since had those items been real it would've been a pretty favorable low-risk trade. Not counting spam mail (unless you believed it to be true, if so ... no judgement), have you ever been the victim or near-victim of a scam?
