  2. $129, no reserve, no feedback... I might just bid. No wait, I reported it to ebay instead.

    I don't get it.. Couldn't I just call the cops if this guy scammed me with that bass? Couldn't he get arrested?

  8. From what I've heard this typically doesn't amount to much and most people don't get their money back. This can be even worse if the person is in another country.

    The cops are way to "busy" to even mess with a scam unless it was huge. Then it would probably be a federal case. My nephew got scammed, called the cops and they literally laughed at him

    Your basically own your own.

    He's registered in Italy. Chances are he's in Nigeria.
