    Get all of the buyer/sellers details including a working phone number (test it) & send via a secure/recorded/signed for delivery method. Also check out the other parties feedback beforehand.

    what if you have no feedback (but ebay) and/or they have no feedback?

    and is it the done thing here to send before payment?!?

    Are you selling? If so accept payment via ppg. If buying get all details, but this still isnt 100% safe. Ive bought and sold a few things on here and in my opinion a lot is based on trust. If a member has plenty of feedback I would feel more comfortable trading with them. if its a high value item I would give it a miss.

    If you are new then members will ask you to send item first. Or some will pay half now and half later.

    there is no real sure way of net getting scammed, you are sending money to someone you dont know, but you can get all details before trading, send a message via ebay to them and wait for a reply, that at least confirms their ebay id, get their address and landline number and ring them, again tracable if things go wrong as for paying someone, well i suppose the safest way is cash in hand, if something doesnt feel right then dont proceed, there are plenty of long stadnign members who are happy to help if you are unsure, read the rules and the trading guidelines, it wont stop someone scamming you but will give you details to proceed with trying to deal with it
