I consider myself tek savvy but I know I am people witless:

Before going on vacations to Mexico I "bought" a screen replacement for a PSP on eBay. Also 99.9% positive seller. I was waiting for it when I finally got time for me to travel to Mexico. I made the mistake of sending an email to the seller "If you haven's sent it, please send it in four weeks". Well, I came back but the screen never showed up. I sent emails, and he would say "I am out of screens right now but next week..." eventually changing to  "Sure I will refund your money" eventually, after the grace time for complains had passed. no more communications. no more emails, nothing.

So, I've increased my internet accumen: Buy online? sure, but only from reputable sellers even if it costs more.
