So I recently bought some sealed spider decks off ebay, listed as not coming with tin, boosters or rules. Works for me, I just wanted the deck duplicates. They show up in the mail, and the sealed decks end up being store demo decks instead, with none of the stuff I wanted. I've already processed it through customer service, I just felt the need to fish for sympathy here on the forum. Feel free to share your own tales of misfortune.

Got ripped off by an overseas seller. He posted a Warhammer army for sale for a really low value and I leaped at it. When it arrived, it wasn't the army I had bid on, and when I contacted him he claimed he had gotten the boxes mixed up and asked if I could send my box to another person and he would refund the funding. Well, I mailed the box, and I got nothing. When I tried to get my money back I learned that Ebay couldn't do anything since he was listed as overseas and the guy closed his account. When I checked his high feedback, I saw that it was mainly duplicates of the same account leaving him copy and pasted messages.

What I want to do to him if I find him: :peasant:

I don't fault you for feeling that way, it's a shame we have to keep an eye out for that sort of thing.

Unfortunately no one is safe from being ripped off.

I once got tried to be ripped off (at least i think so) when i bought a cell phone from Ebay with a seller that had a very good reputation. Turns out you couldn't charge it and the phone service found out it was due to internal water damage. When i tried to return it i got into a heated email battle with the seller until i threatened to report him to the police and charge him, at this point he refunded the money and i sent the phone back.

I follow basic guidelines when buying anything worth more thsn 50$

- needs a good rep (on Ebay at least 90 or 95%)
- can't be mysteriously cheaper than all other similar offers (automatically sets off my alarms and suspicions)
- read the description of the item very carefully and look for loopholes

So far it worked quite well and if you start to have any doubts about the purchase then simply walk away.

Water damage is the most common cause for damaged devices. I should know; I have kids!
