Internet posse roots out auction fraud

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.

Buyer beware.
