Subject: [CR]Ebay and scams

I for one will not have anything to do with the Ebay set up here or world wide one reason as I have mentioned previously is I have never had the need to partcipate and secondly I know of too many people who have never received goods and consquently lost their money. Its wide open to fraud in this day and age and in my opinion not worth engaging in something so open to cheat fellow citizens out of their hard earned honest money.You've guessed it I want nothing to do with Pay Pal or its likes thank you!

So I do not think I and anyone like me should be ostracised when we seek other ways to to paid for our goods. I have always requested payments by cheque, bankers order or cash which too date this has presented no problems. My policy is, if the interested party does'nt want to pay by the methods I choose then they have no sale its as simple as that. If people choose to use ebay and prepare to bid that is up to them but bear in mind its not everyones cup of tea!
