Iffy eBay goods draw ire of Internet posse: Cyber-vigilantes track down sellers of questionable items—often with blessing of overworked authorities
I was going to comment on a similar story yesterday, but didn’t quite find the time. Today I just couldn’t miss the opportunity again.
I encourage you all to read it. It reminds us of that age-old saying: If it’s too good to be true, it probably is. That’s not saying you can’t get taken to the cleaners with a phony item if the price is in the ballpark of where it should be… but you want to stick with reputable dealers to minimize your chance of being swindled.
