I have purchased things from ebay plenty of times, but never sold. I recently listed my 24L on ebay and have been talking to ebay about the process of how the auction works etc. I recall seeing horror stories on here about how in ebay sales the buyer almost always comes out on top in any sort of conflict. I was wondering if people had any pointers on how to avoid whatever buyer scams may be out there in reference to photography equipment.
The thing that got me thinking about this was that I just received my first bid on the lens and it is from an account that is something along the lines of "thecannonguy" with no purchases or sales or feedback and is located in Nigeria. This set off my scam alarms, but I wasn't sure if / how it was possible to conduct some type of scam that involves actually submitting a legitimate bid on ebay. I mean ebay handles payment and fund distribution, so that should be covered. Is there anything I should be worried about? And what steps can I take to ensure the sale goes well?
Thanks for your input everyone!
