Oh, the eBay police would be very pleased to hear from you. They´re escalating their war against these practices (which are of course flagrant violations of the eBay user agreement).

I made the mistake of bidding on a car once. After I lost, I got tons of emails for about a month.
Next time it happens I will let Ebay know.

I wouldn't go for any of these offers, since you'd be operating completely without any protections offered by Ebay (i.e. no ability to leave neg feedback, etc.)

BTW Justin, I hven't forgotten about that thing - I've realised a better (more reliable) way to do it and so I'm working on it.

If they are only taking Money Orders or Western Union you most likely are being taken for a ride. You would have no recourse once you sent payment.
