Reading Is Fundamental

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.
