Random search terms for today

Looking thru the stats and noticed some odd search terms so thought I would put them up here.

  • chinese ebay alternative
  • nokia+brick+phone
  • Amazon Local Daily Offer
  • anyone opened paypal dispute pram

A Chinese eBay alternative with all the Chinese crap on every eBay site you would think they would not need to go no where else. Sites traffic shows a steady increase yet again, with a short spike for yesterday, theirs always a spike when a major eBay issue or change comes along.

Article from DailyMail about eBay/PayPal (mostly it seems)

Article from the DailyMail (30/11/13) about a woman who got scammed for a pram on eBay. From what I can tell she completed the sale outside of eBay and paid via bank transfer (bad idea), but the articles comments are the real gold, generally pissed off eBay/PayPal and now even Gumtree users appearing and telling there stories. I will mirror some of the comments in case they get taken off.

Paypal, ebay, scam, credit card fraud, bank transfer
