Plus most of these frauds are done to stoooopid people, the frauds are very easy to catch but these awesome guys never see it. And in those cases I say that they deserve it.

As in the case of direct online dealings, I find India going places. It is improving. There are numerous websites offering sales of various items although with 'modest' pricing. However sadly, there are Still People Like Amarbir Whose Degree Of Professionalism Is Best Left Undescribed.
What you 'r saying is understandable for shopping portals like rediff. But what about dedicated online sites having the single retailer-owner? I don't know why should a customer have high buyer intelligence to buy an item say, camera, which has been claimed to be able to do so many things but cracks like a glass the moment package is opened (of course mistake is mine because in item description did not mention that the item will not break once the package is opened). Now the seller starts playing in circles like send it back at your expense blah blah..
May be it will be an eye opener for me but can any one tell me whether one needs to be "geeky" and of very high IQ to buy an item online?
BTW, I have currently two items under issue resolution in e-bay.in. Since both these items are very low value items I am going to close these instead of trying to argue with these so called reputed sellers who start pointing about missing dots, extra commas in their item description.

A person should be careful enough to go through tons of reviews not only the seller's site but also on others as well. If there aren't any, search for an alternative.

Ebay.in is the only decent one, since they have a huge international presence.
