Same here. Never a scam issue. I think if you wait until you get paid before you ship something it's kinda of hard to get scammed. Plus eBay has your back if there is an issue.

Maybe you don't how paypal is being used by buyers.
Let's say you sell a set of wheels for $500 on ebay using paypal and all seems fine. Then the buyer files a claim to Ebay and paypal about the condition. The wheels were fine when you shipped them but the scammer swaps out his own similar but bent wheels and guess what.........you get the damaged wheels back and must then refund the money too. Buyer gets ripped off since paypal always sides with the buyer.
It is quite easy to get scammed on ebay.

Hmm. I guess I have been lucky then. I've been selling stuff for about 5 years and have sold probably $5,000-$10,000 in stuff over the years and haven't had any scammers that I am aware of. I always insure stuff if it's over $50 though. I have had a few people claim stuff was damaged but the insurance always covered it. One guy got an item and said he didn't want it(no damage) just changed his mind. So he wrote return to sender and the post office shipped it back to me. He opened it though. I refunded his money less my cost to ship it to him. He gave me negative feedback because he didn't get a full refund. I thought it was fair since there was nothing wrong with the item, he just changed his mind.

It's a shame we have to be on the lookout for conartists and scams.
I was hoping OP still had these wheels sitting in his garage. I chipped my wheels on a curb during the last snow here in NC. A drive to Wilmington or Charlotte wouldn't have been no trouble for me so shipping wouldn't have been an issue.

Nevermind my low post count. I'm a lurker and a reader.

Not really. I sold over $50k worth of items on ebay this past year and had no fraud cases. Only sell to those with good ratings

I have had A LOT of problems on eBay. Mostly people pulling open box scams. As a seller you're screwed.
