I'm looking at buy a Ipod touch or Iphone i emailed the owner and then a few days later i went to look the product again but no product exists just a photo in the category. Have they been suspended?

Is there any protection guide lines we should use when buying.

IF you can see the product description and the buy now on the item then that store is NOT suspended.

commone sense
#1 if you email the seller and dont' hear back in 24 hours or so - think twice
#2 always use a credit card - not a debit card --- you are protected as a buyer from your cc company.

without the name of the store how do you expect an answer?

I agree that not getting a response within 24 hours is a red flag except if you were emailing this week, the seller could be away or if he's my neighbor could be stuck in a snowbank somewhere. Also emails do go astray. If the item, description and price are visible and you really want the item, you can try emailing again with delivery receipt checked.

Lots of people are selling technology on line. Check out his/her competition.

I didn't include the name of the store just incase i was wrong about the suspension. Here is the name and I would assume the store is suspended because of the last couple answers. http://phoneworldstores.ecrater.com/

I appreciate the feedback about protecting ourselves when purchasing. I guess I get concerned when I see the selle in Indonesia and the product is in the USA.

The seller hasn't even bothered to set it up yet. The store looks empty. No image on homepage, no logo uploaded. No text for welcome, about us or evem terms. No FAQ. It should be a clue fro trouble. Looks like the store got suspended as soon as the seller listed a few items.
