Speaking of trust systems: I've had excellent results with ebay - buying from reputable sellers. There are quite a few chinese/hong kong sellers on there with 10-50k transactions and 1-10 negative feedbacks. I don't know *any* brick and mortar stores with those kinds of numbers.

Unfortunately PriceRitePhoto also sells on Ebay with a 99% approval rating on almost 5000 feedbacks. They have 32 negatives but I do notice that it says (145 ratings mutually withdrawn). Could this be the result of more harassment? A little research yields:

I especially like this response.

" CALLED ME A MORON- six times & SAID ILL KEEP THE CAMERA & YOUR MONEY- E FOR MORE"

Check out the negative feedback they've left:

There are definitely some shady business practices going on there.
