Try and buy stuff fairly locally, so you can pick it up if possible.

Yeah either local or buy from trusted seller (if you buy often you will know who they are)
Always use paypal so you can open a dispute if ripped off..

There's always one thats trying to rip you off.

Ive been jibbed before but luckily wasnt very expensive.
