    well another lesson learnt. thats the risk of buying from auction sites esp overseas ones.
    Can't deny there will always b risk buyin anythin over the internet, but as long as both seller n buyer r fair n stick to the rules, the risk wld almost b the same as buyin frm over the counter.

    It doesn't mean if u buy frm a local, tht the person won't play ur backside either. At the end of the day, its all about human relationships. N a person's integrity. So I dun totally agree with the local mindset tht buyin frm overseas auction sites r unsafe.

    This Smitcoff guy has 6 negative and 7 neutral (as good as negative records) from his 192 transactions, far too high for comfort!!

    The rest is very much predictable.
    Whn my fren initially made tht purchase, there weren't all tht negative n neutral feedback. All these came lately.. Bad luck man..

    I guess Ebay will suspend tis Smitcoff guy soon..

    Will update whn I noe wat happens nxt..

    yes a local can play your backside too no doubt about that but the risks are significantly lower. but at least for local you can insist on dealing face to face, confirm the merchandise is in good condition before concluding the transaction.
