Holy cow, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I was almost scammed by an *bay flipper today. (won't reveal her pf/eBay id) but she tried to get me to pay outside of *bay... She'll probably leave me neg feedback for not paying, but no way am I paying outside of *bay without any sort of verification that the transaction is for the item I won, especially after reading all these threads about scammers. I think the general rule of thumb is this: DO NOT ACCEPT ANY OFFER TO PAY OUTSIDE OF eBay. DO NOT DO IT! DANGER!!! As much as I love the bag, I am NOT willing to jeopardize that much money and go through the harrowing process of getting my money back.
