Hey, does anyone know ebay's policy when it comes to minors? I remember reading somewhere where it says that ebay doesn't allow you to use it if you're a minor. Or is it that you can't use ebay without parental permission/guidance?
I searched ebay, but couldn't find it.
Anyway, reason why I ask is that I could just got an email from someone wanting to buy a videogame off me. He writes an "woe is me" email, stating that he's a "12-year old boy" and can't afford to pay the current amount. He says he only has $20 (which is about 1/4 of the current amount) that he earned from doing chores, and offered that to me. He says to take in account that he's only "12 years old".
So I'm thinking two things:
First, that he's totally making this up and just wants the item for a really low price. Hell, if I were him and making up a fake story, I'd come up with something better, like "I was in a car accident and have to stay in the hospital for awhile"
Second, even if he is a "12-year old kid," he using shouldn't be using ebay in the first place, since I don't think 12-year olds should be using ebay.
Don't worry, I'm not going to sell to this "kid".
What do you think? Anybody have a similar story, or a different story involving ebay and kids?
