    Hello dear members,

    I am currently in some business with reselling things from eBay (buying them on eBay and selling them locally).
    There are some very confusing things when it comes to specific items which are listed as new models but extremely cheap (up to $10).

    Most of these sellers have very low number of completed transactions (this varies from 100 to 1000). Some of these sellers have old aged accounts with no recent feedback, and again there are those who have just recently registered and started selling.

    My question here would be - does anyone know is it safe to order these kind of items and will I ever get them? (I know that there is possibility to get some stupid items instead of real ones, am I right?)

    I am giving you some examples which I am currently looking out to order (mostly winter jackets), check the number of sales in last 24hrs

    I do not know if posting such links is against ToS (if it is, I'll edit the post).
    Please have in mind that when it comes to reselling things, I am a newbie and I am trying to do this fair enough. (don't have in mind to scam anyone).

    Thank you! :)
