So I decided to buy an iPad third generation as a gift for myself last week. Going to the Apple store was not an option (too far) and I really wanted it soon (shipping times online for Apple were 2-3 weeks at the time). I decided to poke around on ebay and found what I though was a good deal $559.99 for a 16GB model wifi only, free shipping. The listing said delivery would take 3-7 business days and the seller would be shipping from NY (I'm in TX). Now here's where you call me stupid; I've never once bought or sold anything on ebay. I've never been comfortable with the site and probably never will. Anyways, I bought it and went against my gut feeling. The buyer promptly sent me an email thanking me for the quick payment, I replied asking for a rough estimate for shipping to which he said "for sure next week". Well a week has passed, I sent an email asking if he had already shipped, he replied saying he would "tomorrow" and provide me with tracking. two days pass and nothing, I sent another email today and he finally gave me some tracking info. Looked it up and apparently it's being shipped via EMS (Express Mail Service Japan?) It's currently in SHANGHAI CN, not NY where I though it would be coming from. This has me feeling worried. The ebay listing was under "Ebay Buyer Protection" so if it turns out not be an iPad how effortlessly will I get money back? Stupid move on my part. I'll stick to legitimate Apple resellers from now on. Too Long; Didn't Read: Bought iPad on eBay for $10 more than what Apple would have charged me online plus faster shipping, turns out it's being shipped from China and not New York. I feel worried and stupid.
