In Italy there is no such assurance, and this allows a lot of buyers in that country to deny they received their goods and claim their money back through PayPal. At the same time, if the italian postal monkeys say it was delivered, PayPal say FU, sue the buyer.

So fraud is rife in Italy and they know there is nothing you can do about it as a seller. I've had exactly the same issue with Greece. I know there are honest buyers, and I know there are honest postal workers in Italy and Greece, but it's a complete turkey shoot, and crime and corruption are far more acceptable in italian culture. It's no big deal screwing foreigners, and the moral upstanding citisens are figting an uphill battle to try to get their country to be less corrupt.

I'd sooner send unrecorded to Canada than I'd send recorded to Italy unless I knew the person receiving the goods and trusted them.


Yes I see your point, I never ship to strangers in Italy. When I was active on Ebay a few years ago I stopped selling to Italy due to a few "lost" shipments.  I also stopped shipping to a few other european customers as well (like Spain and France) for the same reasons.

LOL. Of all the countries I#d have picked, those are the same two that I ship to that'd be top of my list too. Spain has a p!ss poor postal system, and France has privacy laws that prevent you from using tracking in their postal system. Both also do not require signiatures if the recipient refuses to sign, but to date, I've only 'lost' two packages in Spain, and whilst I've had a few hiccups in France, I've not lost a package, nor had reason to believe a buyer were being dishonest.

Italy and Greece are the bad boys on Europe when it comes to eBay fraud, and most people won't have an issue with Greece because so few people are currently active on eBay from that country.

Gentlemen, pls dont misunderstnad my words:

1) i am well aware that fraud in italy is a plague... its never clear whether the fraud is done buy the buyer or someone else in the distribution chain... hence: trust is truly a value whenever you need to decide to ship to italy!

2) i clearly wrote that italy postal system is not the best in the world... i am well aware that tracking is not possible from the US with "ordinary" options...

This however cannot be generalized into: the assumptions the posts in italy dont work and everybody in italy is a criminal... I'd like to remind that generalization in such terms brought huge disasters in the society of last century... Do you think that every man living in palestine who is not a jew is a terrorist?

Ok, dont want to start a fire, i just wanted to provide you with an obejctive assessment of italian situation and dont want to end up with the usual things like: "pizza, mafia and..."

I kindly ask you to stop this topic here (it is OT BTW).

It's a management of risk thing. It is safer for the majority of people not to ship to Italy or Greece. They have no way of protecting themselves from those two countries, and the countries will not change their systems to be honest or trustworthy.

I don't think there is anyone here who wouldn't ship to any of our fellow Acaeum membersm regardless of which country we're in. So it's not a personal thing.

But the issue with Italy, regardless of protestation, is that the system is corrupt and fraud within it is rife, and we all know that this is a ribbon of corruption that pervades every aspect of Italian life, through both law and politics and public service, and if an entire culture permits that sort of corruption within it, there can be no doubt that those moral standards and practices filter down to the lesser educated and more loosely moralled members of society. The lower the education, the more they are likely to learn by examples, and the examples in society are not great.

The difference between Greece and Italy, is that the lowly educated, morally dubious and less well off, have access to eBay and Credit Cards. In Greece they tend not to be as active online, hense a large number of people don't have experience with Greek buyers yet.

Italy's morals as a country will not change. They haven't changed fundimentally in the past two centuries. It's just something we all have to live with. Naturally that cannot be prescribed to specific individuals, but if you don't know the individual, you have to play the odds, and the odds say, don't ship to italian buyers unless you send by courier and you can guarantee a signiature at the other end (hense UPS or DHL).

It's a management of risk thing. It is safer for the majority of people not to ship to RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS. They have no way of protecting themselves from those RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS, and RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS will not change their systems to be honest or trustworthy.

I don't think there is anyone here who wouldn't talk to any of our fellow Acaeum membersm regardless of which NEAR-AUTISTIC MENTAL STATE OF INFANTILE SELF-CENTEREDNESS [SEE AYN RAND OR ANY OF HER FANS] we're in. So it's not a personal thing.

But the issue with RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS, regardless of protestation, is that the system is corrupt and fraud within it is rife, and we all know that this is a ribbon of corruption that pervades every aspect of RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACIST life, through both law and politics and public service, and if an entire culture permits that sort of corruption within it, there can be no doubt that those moral standards and practices filter down to the lesser educated and more loosely moralled members of RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACIST society. The lower the education, the more they are likely to learn by examples, and the examples in RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACIST society are not great.

RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS' morals will not change. RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS haven't changed fundimentally [NOR HAVE THEY LEARNED TO SPELL] in the past two centuries. It's just something we all have to live with. Naturally that cannot be prescribed to specific RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS, but if you don't know the individual RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACIST, you have to play the odds, and the odds say, don't ship to RIGHT-WING NUT JOB RACISTS unless you send by courier and you can guarantee a signiature at the other end (hense UPS or DHL [WHO REGULARLY CONTRIBUTE TO P.E.T.A.]).

I'm not sure about that - I thought the whole point of hysterical political rants would be to abandon all sense of reason or decorum, preferably in a public forum, while flopping around & speaking in tongues. This shows one's enemies that one is possessed by the gods, an ancient warning that the flinging of monkey poo nears commencement. DAMN DIRTY APES!!!

Seems like uncharacteristically Americanized phrasing. If I didn't know better I'd think it was intended with sarcasm. Oh well, tanto va la gatta al lardo chi ci lascia lo zampino, I suppose.

That one was a steal at just $57.
NICE purchase whomever the winner was.

I placed a bid early on, but I forgot to put in a bigger bid later, otherwise it would not have sold for such a low final price.
