One of the problems is that at the end of an auction ebay sends the buyers address to the vendor immediately but don't send the buyer any details of the vendor. Sometimes I have received info on the seller from ebay but only after the paypal payment went through. For pick up i mostly have to slowly exchange data through the ebay message system.
Also when something is buy it now with postage but they live in the same town you can't go and get it because the listing only responds to taking all the money including th postage. Lost a couple of things while trying to arrange collection.

The planer went for £1728 surely no one would send cash without seeing the item? Then I realised my brother in law spent more than that for a non existent tractor.frown

Well that account has been removed, but I fear he will crop up again.

I used to use ebay a lot for buying and selling but it has become to big to police now.
