You really have to be careful. There are a lot of flat-out liars selling merchandise. Take, for example:
Note that the seller says that it was purchased 8 months ago for $4575 and now it can be had for a "buy it now" price of $1545. Gee, what a bargain for a Chinese tuba! Hard to believe that a seller would let $3030 just go down the drain.
To be sure, there are good and honest sellers, but that auction site is also a hangout for thieves and liars.
