Buyer Beware

Remember our brilliant find of iOffer.com? Well... we're definitely not recommending it to anyone else. We made several purchases - a couple turned out ok (movies which we received but the quality wasn't what the seller claimed) and one turned out to be a scam. It was a fairly significant amount that the seller has run off with, too. The big problem with iOffer seems to be that it is simply a forum but has no provision for dispute resolution like Ebay, making it an easy target for scammers. We're currently working with both Paypal and our credit card company through their dispute/fraud services, ugh, but what a hassle.

Ironically, two years ago at this same time of year we had one of our two bikes stolen. What is it about people robbing us at Christmastime? :-P
