Like this Samsung Omnia I900 from Canada:

I really would not buy from there. Especially if they have no feedback. I got cought out with a ipod touch where they sent me a fake one and wasn't able to claim anything back. You aren't covered through paypal they only really cover you for ebay puchases.

Oh because I thought Paypal protection exists outside eBay also. That's strange then that if the item is fake you can't get your money back. I really wanted that Omnia! :-(

They only cover if it doesn't arrive, bloody stupid but if they send you a empty box, as long as it's tracked, then paypal don't help at all. The only thing I would suggest if you do still want to try is that you pay with a credit card as then you should be able to do a chargeback if it turns out to be fake or something. But you can pretty much guarantee that they will send you some crap

Thanks!

I guess I fell victim to marketing from Paypal. Their protection is very limited it seems...

It's a shame I don't have a credit card, I just don't want to pay the interest of 6% or whatever it is the banks charge. Does anyone here know a deal where a credit card doesn't charge any interest? Then maybe I can buy online with its good protection features. Thx again.

There is apparently the possiblility of debit card chargeback too. It seems very hit and miss though and I would try and talk to your bank before going and buying anything, although it seems that most bank employees don't even know it exists! It can be done though!
