None of us want to support dupers, exploiters, goldfarming sweat shops, or scripters. So, my question is, if I want to buy something, how can I know if I am getting it from a reputable person? I know some sites/people come highly recommended by a lot of people. I also know that if someone is selling say, a 90 day game time code for $15, that's obviously wrong. But aside from the obvious, how would I be able to tell?

There's no way you can tell, to be honest.

While the broker or brokers might be honest in their dealings, the person who sold the items TO the broker, might not be.

Gametime codes for instance, I wouldn't buy from brokers, buy direct from EA instead.

Cheaters use ebay tho too. I son't really trust them as far as this goes. Yeah, I guess you don't know for sure, but people can reccomend others, and word of mouth travels fast.

I used to use markee dragon back in the day, if I wanted to pick something up for RL cash (which was seldom) they were always awesome.

I've always gone on word of mouth recommendations when doing important trades. I tend to prefer the word of my friends to just folk listed on a site, but also if you make friends with traders they're far more likely to give you a good deal :)

I would look for folk in game, then find their ebay names rather than go straight to ebay though, otherwise it's very hard to tell who you're dealing with and where their stock came from.
