I bought a sweet, classicly German, older Blaupunkt Detroit tape deck for my Alfa off eBay over the weekend. Brand new in the box with all of the original parts still in plastic. Too good to be true?

I got the tracking number this morning. Huzzah.

But when I go back into eBay, they show the deck I just bid on, paid for, and had shipped to my house had been relisted. Same photos. Same description. Same seller.

And can I j ust say that every piece of car stereo equipment I've bought on eBay has not worked? The original Sony EB series deck. The Pioneer power amp. The generic Bobco amp (which just had some faulty wiring and was an easy fix). The Kenwood speakers. All promised to be in good working order and fully functional. But none with any refund options. Burn.
