Ebay does not protect buyers and it is understandable. Look at the # of
your buys and the # of the seller. I can tell you horror stories and in the
when I posted a negative review refused me a refund after I send back the
defective used 5680 advertised as new. I did have the emails ebay did
nothing. Sellers are more important. I did post that experience on the list but
since in conversation with time nuts find out the still buy and experience
problems. They deserve it.
Some sellers know the system and communicate with you till time expires
for review and ebay and pay pal do not read the dialog only state seller has
responded, case closed.

Thank you Peter.
I find it odd that so many time-nuts appear to be aware of this scam,
but have done little or nothing about it.
I don't know if this is a "British thing" to want to report such
practices, but we do have a few TV programs where reporters have
exposed scammers. e.g.
"You've Been Scammed"
In contrast, it seems many time-nuts are aware yixunhk is selling
counterfeit items, several have fallen victim to it, but few if any
have done done anything about it. I find that quite strange myself.
