    Maybe. You can get scammed at a hamfest, too, if you're not vigilant.

    True, but at least you have a face to face, a cell phone to record everything, etc. With Ebay/Pay Pal, you are at the mercy of someone with limit comprehension of the language spoken over the phone and even less sense of "I really care". Either way, you may not win...sigh....

    WELL, GIVEN ALL OF THIS GREAT INFO;
    WHY ARE YOU NOT GIVING US THE SELLER'S NAME OR THEIR EBAY STORE'S NAME???
    SOUNDS DUBIOUS WITHOUT PERTINENT INFORMATION LIKE THAT.
    WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO TO LOOK OUT FOR...

    I have used PP for many years with zero problems. Just lucky I guess.

    Perhaps or possibly, things could change with new ownership....who knows...

    True, which is why if it’s a high dollar item, don’t buy unless it can be demonstrated. All the hamfests I’ve ever been to provide power at a table for an extra few bucks, or an area where things could be plugged in, and the seller could always bargain with a powered table for a demonstration.

    I haven't heard if the new ownership took place. I haven't seen many changes.

    Same thing has happened on Amazon, when a new model of radio comes out -- price was too good to be true, and seller wanted you to click a link and pay with a green dot card, etc... We'd report them, and one seller would vanish, and another would pop up within hours.

    Me too. About 21 years all the way back to when it was x.com, a bank from Pittsburgh I think it was. They also sent a book of checks :)
    Yeah, things change over time.

    I use Parcel Post sometimes, too.
