I've never been screwed but then again I'm smart about it and only buy stuff from established retailers with lots of feedback - even if the price is a little higher. I've bought dozens of things there and even sold a couple. Great place to get unique gifts for people.
Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.
The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.
I dont touch that junk. Yeah the key is to buy from people with good feedback. And if the price is way too good to be true then you should stay away. Ive mainly gotten screwed buying clothes from there. Alot of em are factory mistakes and what not. Ive saved hundreds though on car audio stuff
