Passwords should always be a combination of letters and numbers. It shouldn't contain any words or phrases found in a dictionary and always 8 or more characters.
here is an example: t34oy885.

Am just about to pop into bed but had a thought. Does anyone have their Roulette Wheel & box handy? Possibly you could put up a photo of both...in the same fashion as our "$10 handling fee" seller? If not, I'll dig mine out tomorrow and give it a try...it might save one of our members from a serious headache if they know what they should or should not be getting.
OH...forgot one VERY IMPORTANT thing the people from eBay told me:
If you "sign in" on eBay... for instance, to bid on something....remember to "sign out" as the "port" or "line" remains open to any hacker who has the ability to get through your port and into your account! Sort of like leaving the phone off the hook without disconnecting. Always, always "SIGN OUT."

I still, after a night's sleep, go by what I said earlier re putting our identities on the site. You are giving outsiders more information than is necessary and they can build up your profile.
It reminds me of what we were told (I receive reports from the Police about crime in our surrounding area) when they have said exactly the same thing but to do with different subjects. THE LESS YOU REVEAL THE BETTER and save it for your close contacts i.e. those you are dealing with! There is the feedback which tells you how reputable a person is. That is what I look at before bidding!
That is how I feel and under no circumstances will I put my identity on the board. I will give it out when necessary to buyers. I do agree with Greyhound also, and will not put banking details, passwords or anything in my computer.

However, I had a bad experience with ebay last June and stopped buying/selling for a while. A nutty seller refused two cash paypal payments (listed in his item description as a payment method) and then sent me the item, insisting on a check. Since there is some level of safety in using paypal, I refused to accept the shipment and it was returned to him. He then started harrassing me through emails, reported me to ebay for nonpayment and left me bad feedback. The feedback can't be changed but I sent ebay evidence of the payments and they "exonerated" me. Up to then, I had 100% positive feedback - and so did the seller! Go figure... It soured me on ebay. It's hard to protect yourself and to know with whom to do business .

I've been buying on e-bay since 1999, I think, and I have to admit, its a much scarier place than it used to be. When there is money to be made, there will be scams. That's why its nice to have this site with all of you pooling your information.

Top of box, then inside of lid with protective spongy stuff plus opening for finial on Roulette Wheel. After that, the inside of the box (base) showing the place for the Wheel...it IS larger than I remembered, but there's another round section that the Wheel snaps into...
Then one last one of the Roulette Wheel in the Box:
Notice the large sweep of space around the R.W.? I never noticed that until someone brought it up. Surprise! But again, there's a smaller space that the Wheel snaps into.
Ok...I hope anyone who plans to bid on this is aware of the difference in the boxes...now I must put my Roulette Wheel back beside the Lucky Hand and the Showgirl.
What are the chances of Jack starting a data base of boxes?
And thanks, Lisa. I never knew that about negative feedback and the person's address, etc. Have printed it out and put it on my bulletin board for future reference. Every bit helps.
