    Given my shockingly indulgent Pad and Tad recently I think I'll not even go there.

    Got a link?

    I don't particularly care for it cause it asks you for your credit card info at sign up.
    I think they better rethink things and go with PayPal, no one's getting my credit card info before I purchase anything.

    I've seen that auction advertised in several groups on Facebook. I'm always wary of listings at "alternative" auction sites. Competition is good and there's plenty of things in the eBay model that can be improved upon, but that's where the eyeballs are. eBay has a lot of experience in dealing with scammers and I can't help but wonder why the sellers have chosen somewhere else.

    Ebay has not treated it's sellers very well to say the least in these past years and a lot will go to any port in a storm to try and get away from them and I don't blame them much.....but, this is no port I'd wish to go.

    I don't provide my cc info to anyone up front like that, either.

    After going through the inconvenience of having my debit card #'s stolen, I don't believe I would offer up my cc #'s.
    I can resist anything but temptation.
