I have always had excellent service with Ebay.

It looks like I won't be getting that Win XP Pro for my mother's computer from Ebay.
(And I was looking forward to putting in a DVD writer.)

Seller hasn't answered 2 emails.

But with their buyer protection, I should be covered.

Seller name is waybie09.
I am positive it's his/her real name.  :P

Outta here.

$34 for XP Pro should have been your first clue that it's a scam. Probably would have been a pirated key printed on a CD-R, if anything.

For any version XP, in the United States, you need to be looking closer to the $100+ range... and stay away from eBay.

Thankfully MS gave me a free copy. Saved me all the pain.

The picture showed a legit un-opended copy.

I have had 98% satisfaction with Ebay.
You can be scammed on any site.

I can show you a picture of ocean front property in Arizona as well... doesn't mean it is real.

I have great experiences on ebay... I sell on ebay also and have over 100 feedbacks. I sold computer parts, software, books and tons of junk. Of course there is bound to be a scammer or two but all in all I'd say it's pretty safe.

I haven't had any negative experiences on eBay, but I've always exercised caution and common sense.
