How to buy from online auctions and other places   

Some claim that good deals are far and few in between when purchasing a signature.  Though true on one level, that doesn't make it true on others.  All these words do, is encourage Ebay Sellers to jack up prices.  So now, instead of paying $9.99 for that bad Ebay fake, you are paying $49.99 for that Ebay fake!  I don't know about you, but I would be very embarrassed buying a more expensive fake!  Or worse yet, a copy of a fake! Here's some advice that's helped me:

 Don't buy into advice given to you by those who sell stuff. You will note a couple of people offering sale items for people who sign free through the mail!  There's something diametrically wrong with someone telling you don't pay $9.99 for an item and on another page on their site, selling you something for $25 or $45 that you can get for free. What they are saying to you is, "trust me because I charge more".  I am reminded of the old adage "A fool and his money are soon parted". 


It took me years to learn and to be honest, I still have a problem now and then.  But never fear, in the end, though daunting as it may seem, there are some good Ebay deals out there.  Sure, every once in the while even would be enthusiasts like me will get stupid, but it's called being human.  All you can do is educate yourself and do the best you can.
