Buyer beware...& this applies very much so in the world of ebay. I never found it as secure as was suggested, even with paypal - the recommended way of paying for/receiving payment for items. I almost got stung selling a mobile phone & feel sure others have real tales of woe with ebay. I'm sure u'll get floooded with responses. On the contrary, there are bound to be favourable experiences too. Frozen accounts/fraudulent paypal invoices are all part of the colourful world of ebay, in my personal experience. I personally wouldn't go there again.
