So this morning I was looking on eBay as I usually do, looking for a Mesa Dual or Triple Rectifier. As this was my first stack I also needed a cabinet but I planned on buying that on craigslist so I didn't have to pay for the outrageous shipping to ship the cab. Well anyways, I was amazed when I saw a Mesa Triple Rec w/ a 4/12 cab up for bids for $1300 with free shipping that was ending in 5 minutes. Problem was, the seller has never sold on eBay and has 0 feedback. I had to quickly make up my mind and chose to bid anyways. Well, we got it but now I'm concerned that I might be getting scammed. I still haven't paid for the item and am not going to until I know all the terms and am confident that I will actually get the amp.
Now what should I do? What would you do in this situation and is their any safer alternative to PayPal?

Well, it says if you use PayPal, it will cover your full purchase price. It looks legit anyway
Nothing to see here, move along

It it's real congrats on a great deal.

Think of it more positively like this.....everyone has to start with 0 feedback at some point. Maybe this is this guys 1st item which just happens to be a great deal.


Yeah, that's how I thought of it but I'm not prepared to lose out on $1300 that I've been working my ass off for.
So if I complete the deal and he ends up not sending it, or what ever, what happens?

Then you file claim with PayPal and it's investigated and you get your money back.

Yeah, its a bitch to go through but I think its worth it here.

I'm just overly concerned because this is my first time ever buying anything on eBay, and it just so happens that it's a $1300 amp, that to me seems too good to be true.

"No Returns Accepted"

That would worry me...

no one accepts returns on used items, only some shops

So I shouldn't have to worry about that?

Other than the 0% feedback, what is telling you it's a scam?


Besides if you do get scammed, as i have in the past, paypal will eventually sort it out as people have said.
I was sold a broken mp3 player, it took a lot of effort and waiting and emailing to get my money back, but i eventually did. Don't worry.

Right, so just because hes a first time seller, its a scam?

Grow a brain, or pull your current one out of your ass.

Even if it IS a scam, PayPal will get your money back.
