There seem to be some good deals on eBay or other classified services – some frankly seem to good to be true. Any tips on protecting a purchase from the evil doers who are out to rip off Mac fans? I’m considering a transaction with a seller in UK and I’m planning to use uk-escrow.com for escrow proctection. Any advice? Ed: Login to add comments to this story, and tell us what you think. -PK
