This why I don't like ebay.
That's why you don't like Ebay?
Ebay has nothing to do with it, really, it's dishonest people that do. I've made a policy of not shipping outside of US/Canada (I made one exception shipping a rare Macintosh Nubus card to Japan; the buyer paid up front), and I've done research on buyers and sellers. Even when buying an expensive item from a 0-feedback user, I've been fine (note: I traced their listed address and phone number and confirmed). If a seller or buyer does their homework, 99% of the time they'll come out just fine.
