Not much risk for you as a buyer if not the riskto be scammed... that guy has quite some bad feedback... .and very recent too.

Well, that account is run by PayPal! lol

https://www.paypal-gifts.com

And much of the bad feedback seems to be coming from those who claim their accounts were hacked to make purchases.

@pperry, for future posts with links to eb or pp - make sure to add *WARNING EBAY LINK* - forum policy.

Interesting that nothing is for sale right now...

Yet another ridiculous post from rsot.

Common sense would tell us that in a post asking about a specific eBay seller, there is going to be a link to eBay.

Listen - there is nothing ridiculous about telling the OP to post a "WARNING EBAY LINK" - it's the forum rule.

Keep your judgement to yourself - it's pointless.

It doesnt look to me that all that bad feedback is the seller's fault, it looks more that he's the go-to seller that people who get hold of hacked accounts go to buy from..... then the hacked account holder doesnt have the goods, didn't make the purchase, but has the ability (stupidly) to leave bad FB on the seller. Since it's Eb*y or PyPl's own seller account, I don't fee sad for them as far as the feedback, but if it was just a guy selling, man I would.

I'd feel totally safe buying from that seller.
