eBay - An Addicts View

Like so many people around the world I'm completely addicted to eBay. It's a Jumble sale for the 21st Century.

The items people sell never cease to amaze me. I think the silliest I've seen has to be a Superdrug carrier bag that someone found lurking in their loft. Someone actually bought it. I do worry about some people!

I spend quite a lot of my spare time browsing for that 'Must Have' item and selling E-Books to the world. I also hate Christmas shopping, all those crowds and queuing drives me mad. Therefore for the last two years I've bought all my presents on eBay. It's a lot less hassle and I don't even have to carry it home. Bliss 8-)

I'm constantly hearing horror stories about eBay and PayPal users being conned out of large sums of money. I strongly believe this is mainly due to people not using their heads carefully enough. The key to safe eBaying, as with anything in life, is to take time to check out the sellers and be aware of the possible scams doing the rounds. Always be suspicious, research the seller and if anything at all doesn't add up, just walk away. Use common sense and you'll avoid being a victim. This rule works in all areas of life, not just with 'On-Line' transactions.

That's it for now I think, but if you feel an unquenchable need to purchase a quality E-Book and want superb customer service, visit me on eBay. There's a link at the bottom, just click the logo and away you go.
