    Hi Guys,

    I just paid for the following item on eBay, £1050 + 15 p&p - from the apple store it costs £2199

    The seller has 39 positive feedback, but too good to be true?? and hes from Birmingham

    What do you think guys?

    Bit late to worry about it once you've bought it, though you can always dispute it if an Atari st turns up instead.

    Firstly, how is this the biggest mistake of your life? The damn thing hasn't even turned up yet, you could have got yourself a bargain!

    Secondly..... what the fuck?

    Your paying via paypal. They almost aways side with the buyer if the item is not what it is claimed to be. I wouldn't worry to much.

    It's just a bad idea to buy big ticket items on ebay... what's wrong with amazon.co.uk? You're simply not going to get a genuine seller selling a brand new macbook for 50%. The item is not real, and your money is gone. Now, cheer up :)

    "and hes from Birmingham"........oh dear.

    I've bought expensive items off ebay but only after I've spoke to the seller and got a satisfactory back story, copies of original purchase receipt etc. You're in the UK you are probably only an hour from the midlands I would have only bought it if I was able to jump into the car and pay cash two hours after the sale.

    I doubt its the biggest mistake you will make in your life but I would'nt be too confident of it going smoothly.

    This is not the right section to post this, so make sure to post in the right section next time.

    And to answer your question, check out the seller's feedback but I am pretty sure that looks fishy. Try looking for deals at other better websites which are a lot more secure and safe.

    Rule number 1) You can't con an honest man.

    You tried to get something for nothing. Why would someone sell something that is worth £2k for just £1k ?
