Buying & Selling Thru Ebay & Other Auctions/Hi I need some help with ebay


I was wanting to know how you protect yourself against buyers that try to scam you. Say you sell a perfctly working projector and when they get it they say it doesnt work. Or they say they got an empty envelope.

Hello, there is really no way to protect yourself from this on eBay. You have no control what a buyer will do or say. It is a risk to sell on eBay. My advice is not to sell electronics or other high dollar items and you will avoid these types of issues.
