Why is it that no one ever bids on items from Hong Kong, or Taiwan, places like that?
Are they mostly scams?
because P&P is expensive, especially on cds and things.
What is it you're buying/worried about buying from Hong Kong?
but I was looking through the similar auctions and none of them get bids, even up to 10 minutes before they end.
I'd sooner open a account with the Standard Provincial Commerce Bank of Nigeria.
Loads of dodgy fake Vans, Volcom, Stussy, etc from sellers in Hong Kong. It's sucking up eBay because they each list many hundreds of items and you have to sort through the counterfeits in order to find the real deal from proper stores or private individuals.
Like my spelling in that post
but, I find that the HK/China/Taiwan lot still appear regardless. Basically they're tricky fuckers (the scammers that is, not a full one fifth of the world's people!).
Personally, I would NEVER buy anything from a China/HK/Taiwan based seller.
It turned up in one of the most amazing boxes ever, it looked like it had been taken from a skip. I keep it on proud display!
and then write "from hong kong" under the details bit
Pretty much that.
