With increasing fraud on eBay, is it even safe to try to buy PowerBook through them? Is escrow service the way to go? 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
