Has anyone bought a car on Ebay?
I saw some used cars on Ebay that seem almost too good to be true. On one of them, the seller said she was going to do it through the Ebay protection program. It sounded perfect. The seller pays Ebay. The buyer gets the car and has 10 days to check it out, take it to a mechanic, etc. Then, the money is released to the seller. What could go wrong?
I read the fine print of the protection. They had some exclusions that were understandable. This is the only part that I see that could problem: They say that they only gaurentee the claims made through their corresponse system. This buyer emailed me the details of the car through her regular email address. I asked her to send me the same info through Ebay. I guess I won't hear from her, or maybe, I will, and I get a great deal on a car.
Is there anything else I should watch out for?
