i agree with this sentiment - ebay, paypal, every bank, every credit card
company, every insurance company - it is part of the new world of online
transactions. Customer service is now virtual and if you are not reasonably
computer literate you are in trouble. Decent people are being replaced by
ignorant computers. Computers are dumb and only do what they are told to do.
But people are smart and can tell dumb computers to do things they are not
supposed to do. BUYER BEWARE .....
When things work fine people tend to
assume they always will. When they do not and you have parted with your money
it is difficult to get it back as there are very few people/phone numbers
there to help you, and, the receiver does not want to give it back - usually.
Thats why lawyers will always have a job.....
Good advice may be buy things
one by one and avoid large online transactions - minimize your exposure.
