Saving My Bacon

I was almost the victim of fraud on eBay. I had won The Matrix Phone and emailed the seller to confirm that this was a genuine item. My two emails bounced, plus I noticed that the seller was 'unregistered' and I knew I wasn't going to part with any cash [nearly $600] until I saw photographic proof that this phone was in the owners possession.

Then, I noticed today that the email addy was different for the seller, so I sent one further email only to receive a reply that this seller's account had been hijacked and that in no circumstances was I to send any money.

Well, PHEW is all I can say to that!

Someone up there is watching over me...
