Never again.
Woa... what did you buy? I would never be spending that high of an amount unless it was a huge power seller with great feedback. Plus I would only pay that amount through a verified PayPal account so that I could contest it or cancel the payment via my credit card.

Ebay and PayPal usually protect you for up to $2000.

Yeah 99% and higher is great feedback. The more ratings they have and the higher feedback % they have, the better.

Was it really that cheap? What's the link so I can confirm that it looks clean and safe? That just sounds a bit too cheap since it is $75 cheaper than Newegg.
