SCAMMER WARNING  
Sailor Moon season 2 ADV DVD boxsets are a new target on eBay lately. Everytime I catch an auction that's suspicious, the seller uses the same pictures, always has a different name and 0 feedback. Also, the boxes are ridiculously cheap. I've seen previous auctions pulled off of eBay in this pattern. I ask that if you are on the lookout for season 2, (also this seller has three "rare" identical Sailor Moon lockets, and 2 boxsets of season 2 in this case). Please be on the lookout. I could be wrong, but I ask everyone to be cautious. I've been eyeballing season 2 for a month now and it's awlays the same pattern.

E-bay = The root of ALL evil's
I noticed that on here, and I was a bit annoyed when ebay pulled my listing off due to the way I worded how I can ONLY take a certain paypal payment? Well I hate to burst their bubbles but I'm not loseing 20.00 to ebay and ANOTHER 20.00 in paypal fees and loseing 40.00? I got my fees credited back after a rant e-mail to them about that lame rule. Not everyone has a credit card and can only use the Personal accounts. At least with them you don't have to lose extra money as long as people pay you the way you state.

But it bothers me more whn they let scammers like thay do that, and no matter what you do to report them they just let them go about their merry way on here and the ones that do get in trouble it's for something dumb like the 'payment method' in my case.

Okay, that's really lame. Gawd, it really upsets me though to see people get screwed over because of the greedy jerks out there. I have no respect for scammers.

Re: E-bay = The root of ALL evil's
I hear you on that one sister. Every since that new guy took over Ebay all they do it support scammers and Paypal in my views does as well. I honesntly wish they'd make another place better than paypal that won't get bought out and taken over by Ebay and not have to worry about such crap lately those sites seem to be up to.

I prefer buying directly from online stores or sellers with a huge amount of positive feedback. This boxset is hard enough to find as it is without me having to be picky and careful. I'm convinced that bootleg may be the only way to go cause that's a lot of money to waste on a scam =(

Google Checkout. ;)

They announced it recently and quite a few retail websites will be implementing it soon.
Ebay rejected it as an allowed payment form on Ebay though, said it hasn't been tested long enough yet. (probably about 10% true, and the other 90% is they don't want the competition from Google)

Re: E-bay = The root of ALL evil's
That I've heard rumors over a year now. I wish they'd bring it out. Paypal needs a good kick in the butt. *shakes fist* You are the next root of all evil's!

The only problem with paying with Paypal and filing later is that I have heard you can't get your money back if the store/person on the other end has already emptied their Paypal account. I have never had that happen to me before, the only time I ever filed a claim I got the money back, but I've heard of tons of other people complaining otherwise about that.

I hate the buy-it-now thing with MOs too, 99% of the time when I do "buy it now" I set it up with the "immediate payment required" thing so that they have to use Paypal. I mean, I understand there are users out there who don't have Paypal, I didn't for a while and I was so dejected when I saw so many things I wanted but didn't have a means of paying for them (especially overseas), so that's why I offer a MO option, but if you REALLY want something enough to buy-it-now you probably should have the money at your disposal right then, eh?

Money orders just seem like one heck of an inconvenience anyway for everyone involved.

I like paypal because I don't want to touch my credit card as it's for gas money and emergencies only.

Thank you so much for letting us know-I personally only shop from people on Ebay who have a good amount of feedback-all positive.
