God I miss eBay!

Sometimes it sucks to be in Indonesia... not so long ago, I was an eBay addict, logging many times a day to browse in the musical instruments, in search of a fine guitar. But something like 2 years ago, there's been a big scam; people (pretending to be?) from Indonesia bought instruments without paying it. Ok, you have to be a sucker to sell something without using paypal, but the damage is done. Nobody wanna sell a guitar to a guy in Indonesia...

Of course, I can buy anyway with my canadian account and make it deliver to my partner there, but how to deliver here? The most secure way cost 700$ for a single guitar! (with a 3 000$ insurance covering...) geez...

So the passion is gone... use this time to log on JakChat instead...

i receive on average one enquiry a week from people overseas -- usually in the US or Europe -- asking whether an indonesian electronics web site is legitimate or not. in 100% of cases, they are frauds. they all use very similar modus operandi. some are suspected to be operated by nigerians resident in Indonesia.
