    There's some interesting pointers is this article I got from a different group.

    Also for general scams (not just ebay) this is good as well:

However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to (it's not part of my role to deal with this). Any views are mine and not the official line of

    Aren't they scaremongering, though?

    In 10,000 transactions, no one has ever tried any of these on me. In fact I can only think of one person who I suspect of having tried to cheat.

    I believe both articles are for US customers. In US staying safe is a (big) problem with or without eBay.
