Feedback dilema...wwyd?

A mama on the pin has offerd me a super good deal on some diapers, but doesn't have feedback anwhere but ebay. I checked her ebay feedback (which is all positive) but it says on ebay that she is in MI, and the address she gave me is in NY. Would you still do the deal? Is there any way to tell if it is really her ebay account?

Re: Feedback dilema...wwyd?

hmmmmmmmm, I don't know. I'd honestly say it depends on who it is. If it's someone who's fairly regular taht I felt like I know, I'd probably go for it, but if they only have a few FSOT posts, I'd be scary. I know that being "regular" doesn't always mean trustworthy, but it does kind of give you some security. The other thing is maybe send her an e-mail through ebay and see if she responds appropriately. I'm sure if it is her, she'll understand! Good luck!

Nope, I wouldn't so it. Just in case it's not her ebay account. If it's hers, tell her to edit her location then you will purchase.

There are sooo many people who scam in one way or another, I would not trust her unless she changes the city. A good deal is not a good deal if it's gone bad.

I always check where they are located vs. where they say they are. If they don't match I don't buy!

Ditto the rec on sending her an email through Ebay and see if she responds appropriately. It does sound fishy but she could've moved and just never bothered to update her profile. I moved from GA to MA 6 years ago and it took me 3 years before I updated my Ebay profile. It just never occured to me since I don't use Ebay very often.
