I am an avid e-bay'er. I buy fabric, notions, tools, and other gizmos from ebay for quilting. I am in the market for a newer machine than I am currently using. Last night I saw a "new" embroidery machine posted online. I never looked at the sellers record (there was not one, he had zero feedback). I placed a low bid for this machine.
I got an email this morning from EBay Customer Support letting me know that the listing was taken down. I called EBay, and the rep let me know that this was a scammer, his post was taken down because he had other contact information and wants people to purchase the machine w/out using EBAY.
Be careful in purchasing. I am very grateful this was pointed out to me by EBay.
