Chapter 7. Dealing with Fraudulent Sellers > Protecting Yourself Before You Buy

Protecting Yourself Before You Buy

The first line of defense against frauds and cheats is to intelligently choose the people you deal with. On eBay, the best way to do this is via the Feedback system.

You should always check a seller's Feedback rating before you bid. If it's overwhelmingly positive, you can feel safer than if the seller has a lot of negative feedback. For even better protection, click the seller's name in the item listing to view his Member Profile, where you can read individual feedback comments. Be smart and avoid those sellers who have a history of delivering less than what was promised.
