    Ebay feedback isn't worth toffee any more. It used to give you a fighting chance of picking a decent trader, but you can now BUY positive feedback if you look hard enough....

    Something as relatively cheap and smple as number plate holders should be safe though

    True, but having a good look through it usually gives you some idea..

    No idea about this seller. But in general i find most ok. I've had a couple of people pi$$ing me about in the last couple of weeks and they have had very good feedback. So like said before feedback is not all it seams.
    I'm only going to use dealers from now on to get my stuff as it's more reliable i think.

    I have done a bit on ebay recently, and have 2 people in particular f*cking me about with stuff i have paid for on PayPal and not yet recieved, 10 days after the Auction has ended!!

    I tend to only use ebay for stuff that i cannot get from a dealer/other source..

    I bought two of these from him mate, and he was spot on. They only fit the rear of the car though,and you have to chop off the middle bit otherwise you have to bend it....

    Whenever I'm thinking of buying stuff on eBay I always try and send a message to the seller. I just ask them a question, even if they have the answwer on the advert.

    Its just something to see how quick they are at responding abd to try and get an idea if they are genuine.

    Not a sure fire way of avoiding dodgy ebay sellers but it helps.

    Also look at what people have bought and sold on the feedback.
    If there are lots of 1p or < &#163;1 deals (usually for ebooks) then they have bought feedback and are dodgy.
