Re: Safe way to send money order?
If you look at feedback, make sure there's a good mix of selling and buying feedback. Some scammers have been known to pad their feedback with buying a bunch of little things from people here and there. 381 items and 100% is pretty good. It's hard to have 100% positive even if you're a straight shooter, because everybody ends up dealing with a lousy buyer or seller at some point who leaves relatiatory bad feedback and whatnot.
If you're a college student, you may think you can't afford to have a credit card, but then again you can't afford to lose a crapload of money on a transaction that goes awry... hell, even if the money order is lost in the mail, the money's gone. Credit cards aren't bad, and you should really have one with a small limit so you can establish some revolving credit.
