a money order? I have agreed to buy a purse on eBay, and they will not accept Paypal. I've never paid by either money order or a cashiers check before to a seller on eBay...only used Paypal. This person wants paid by money order only. Any guesses as to why? Something about this makes me suspicious, but I'm fairly new to this, and maybe I'm being unduly suspicious. I wrote her back and asked if a cashiers check would be acceptable (as was the case when I clicked on "Pay by money order or Cashiers Check"), and I haven't heard back from her. I got notification by eBay that the seller wanted payment by money order only. eBay (plus people on this forum) have advised that paying by money order is risky, but no one has mentioned Cashiers checks. Any 'red flags' here? Any risks that you know of with Cashiers checks? The seller has a 100% good feedback with 400 plus feedback remarks, which sound good. Thanks so much for your thoughts.
