Today’s mail provided an excellent opportunity to remind everyone of one of the biggest things you need to do when bidding in an auction… READ THE DESCRIPTION!
I’ll admit that I rushed into a purchase lured by the combination of a great Buy It Now price, an eBay Bucks certificate, an eBay coupon and a few bucks stashed away in PayPal that lead to this John Cena autographed 11×14 making its way into my collection for just a couple of dollars out of pocket.
BUT… THAT SMUDGE!?!
The first thing I thought was “tricky eBay seller with a bait and switch” and then I opened up the auction and noticed it’s exactly the same as pictured and the description clearly stated that the smudge was there.
This will be the constant reminder to take a few more seconds and READ before clicking that Buy It Now button.
