ok, I'm a little unnerved now ABF. The seller has 182 sales to his/her name. Member since oct 2003, but theres a sign for Paypal Buyer Protection up to $1000.
They add insurance. I'm planning (or was planning, ain't sure no more) to buy a laptop for $1300 plus $49.99 shipping which includes insurance.
I read the eligibility for the Paypal protection and it seems to apply to my situation because its a tangible good that I'm buying but granted assuming foul play occurs and paypal does cover me, I'd still be out $350.
Man, this sux. I'm scared again.
