    Default eBay is s***

    I've listed a total of four items in the past month and have not been paid for a single thing - I've received a combination of: no response from auction winner, a Nigerian scam attempt and then some prick who said he "bid too high" and couldn't pay. I'm divorcing ebay.

    3 out of the 4 listings have been attempting to sell my Xbox, re-listing said xbox and then trying to sell an Xbox game (4th auction was for a t-shirt). Is it just that dolts and punks gravitate towards these electronic/gamer items and I've hit some bad luck?

    I would think so. Whilst it has all of those things that you mentioned, Ebay, to my experience, has been very rewarding. I sold my blackberry storm in January for $300 when it typically sold for $250, according to the site. It was paid immediately.

    Maybe it's because you are selling the XBOX? Who knows, but Ebay is full of scammers.

    eBay has turned into a cesspool. I try to find more local outlets if I can.

    Yeah, have you tried craigslist? I know they're scammish as well, but usually not so bad?

    I have not tried craigslist (I dwindled all my time with Ebay listing it twice, for a duration of 5 or 6 days each). It's crunch time and I have a couple of bills to pay in the next few days. Looks like I'm headed to the pawn shop. I don't expect to get much more there than I would dealing with a dishonest Nigerian.

    Dammit!

    I wonder if you advertised a giant pimp-slapping stick...

    Is it wrong that I love this sentence? You just don't hear it that often, y'know?
