Thanks im buying an ipod 80gb and dont want to be shafted even though its only £150

Actually, double checking it now says no.

Used to be but they now state they can't intervene, but if you pay by CC you'll be fine anyway.

I always thought no, How can Amazon assure the seller is kosher?, Similar to ebay etc?

They don't look to bad, Although i'm slightly wary of just how cheap the prices are.

Errm, If it was my £150, I'd rather spend an extra £20 and get it from a reputable company, But thats just me down to a tee! :giggle:

But they do have good feedback, Its just the prices do seem far to cheap for everything...............

Well the next cheapest price I can actually find is £199.....

I'd either wait for it to come back in stock and take a risk, But it just seems far to cheap to me (Same as the Sony Bravia 32" Tv's for £300, About £100 cheaper than anywhere else! :? )

well i was just looking through amazons site and it seems you are protected but what other precautions could i take

I would avoid this seller, they are listing stuff at well below cost, remember the old saying, " If it looks too good to be true, it probably is ";-)

I wouldn't be surprised if its a hacked account, Prices do seem unbelievably cheap!

That thought had crossed my mind as well, many items are listed at exact round figures, highly unusual.

Thanks people looks like you've just saved me 150 squid now thats a hot deal:giggle:

I have almost ordered items from Amazon in the past, no real indication that it was marketplace, until I saw the postage...HUGE.

It has happened a few times. I wish Amazon would make it much clearer when you are going to marketplace
