Alternates to eBay?

September 13, 2009 1:48pm CST
I've been on eBay for a little under a year now and dislike all the scams there. People post bootleg electronics and there are very few reliable sellers. I've read some people mention they go elsewhere now to sell and buy online, like Amazon. But I'm curious if there are another other legitimate, safe sites like eBay that are significantly better, maybe cheaper?

Wow, I have never used ebay. What type of scams have youencountered?

well from my experience some people have sent damaged video games, some people try to pawn of illegal fake items as real ones, some people steal your money and never send the item they auctioned, and occasionally you'll get people who have no knowledge about the item they're selling. you really need to watch people's feedback percentage scores and thoroughly go through their past selling/buying history because there seems to be too many shady sellers
