It's the ones that claim they are selling the Japan release *brand new* for an abnormally low price that you have to look out for. Plus, a seller can easily say they're in Japan but they're not. I've come across quite a few that in the feedback section, the buyer says the package was postmarked from China. You just gotta be careful.
I guess I'm just more paranoid than most? I've just had bad experiences getting bootlegs before, and I want to be sure it NEVER happens again, especially since I can't really afford to buy replacements right now.

And you're right about false Japan location listings...but I usually go by that in addition to the feedback average/amount of ratings and what else they have on sale. There is exactly one eBayer that I currently trust as far as buying Ayu CDs, and even then I was really worried until I got my first order from him.

Er, yes; *ahem* back on topic indeed...how many other people laughed when they saw the name HAPPY BOX? Couldn't help myself. That's just a short step away from SUPER TERRIFIC HAPPY BOX!
