    That is the reason why there a alot complaines about best2you886 but they are still be able to cheat the buyer over Ebay.
    I have alway thought that Ebay will pay sometime to protect their customers and themself from these things but not.
    Have filled an Paypal form but not sure it gonna work or not?
