    ebay advice please

    i am selling a very expensive laptop on ebay at auction, with a buy it now option. Someone has offered the starting price(without putting in a bid) I declined as there are many watchers. Hes has come back a couple of days later asking "how much?" I replied...as per auction. Now discovered he has only been an ebay member for 3 months and has zero feedback. Should I/can I prevent him from bidding. Worried about all the scams revealed on here. Thanks for any advice.

    Ditto.

    Everyone has to start somewhere I guess, but Id rather not take any chances myself.

    Have you changes your settings/preferences to blocking bidders outside Uk for example, ppl with less than 5 feedback (I think its 5), ppl without a card on file, all that stuff? Probably a bit late in the day now as I dont think it would apply to this auction if you changed it now, but its worth keeping in mind for future auctions.

    Make sure you keep a record and have pics of the serial number etc and send it Special Delivery or via courier,you need to make sure it's insured for it's full value by whatever method you send it tracked.

    Yeah, take your chances/risks on stuff you can afford to lose. Let them start by buying cheaps stuff.
