I'm checking out this bike on ebay, and it seems too good to be true. I'm not really experienced with ebay - I used to use it to sell off stuff I had, but haven't used it in years.
Are there any safety mechanisms to protect the buyer from being hosed? I'm not afraid of using online shopping sites - I use Amazon regularly, but ebay has always seemed a touch shady in my eye.
The deal I'm looking at is what the seller claims to be a brand new Specialized S-Work Epic for only 200$ + 25$ shipping.
250$ for this bike, especially brand new, seems way too good to be true. I know the worst thing that could happen is that he takes my money and I get no product, or I get some product different than what was described, and he still gets my money.
Is there any protection against this? I'm a noob at ebay - advice would be appreciated!
This is the deal:
