Fake Oakley Sunglasses
eBay is best known for the strangest used items to ever be resold to another consumer. Where else have you seen someone auction of ad space on their head, bellies, and other body parts.
Grilled cheese sandwiches with some religious meaning burned into it.
Even selling the rights to name someone's baby, some very strange things. However, there is another side to ebay, the fraud or misleading auctions.
If you are bidding on a pair of earrings from Tiffanies, be wary, most of the Oakleys are fake Oakley sunglasses.
So why do people still shop on ebay with so much collusion of fraudulent listings? Likely because the prices are just too good to be true.
Most brand new electronics are sold to places like Best Buy and Circuit City at 40-50% off retail. So, some smart needy people have opened up their own channels of communication with the distributors and sell them dirt cheap on eBay, making slim profit margins of less than 10%.
However, they have no overhead costs, so why not. What you need to look out for are those who pop up on eBay with no feedback and poorly designed listings.
The best piece of advice to avoid getting scammed on a pair of fake Oakley sunglasses or tiffany jewelry, don't buy from someone that does not have over 100+ feedback rating and if it is too low, it is obviously too good to be true.
Lastly, use Paypal buyer protection when purchasing, this way you have a way of at least crippling the seller if they try to defraud you of your money.
