A short history
Where I work, which I joined 5 years ago there where quite a few ebay users, mostly for rare records (buy) and womens cloths (selling)
I even sold a car via ebay
Alas as the years have rolled on so one by one people got ripped off, and now we have but 1 ebay user at our works
ebays vote-for model was worked on by the scammy type, pumping up their ratings nodoubt with a bit of sockpuppet style practises etc
And when they struck Joe Public ebay said "Fuck you, sort it out yourself"
You can't find a phone number to talk to anyone, the email as is is a bunch of form letters
There was the whole Nintendo Wii snafu for two Christmas's
Why would you want to throw your money in to a vipers den?
The sooner ebay is history the better
