Personally I would never buy anything from anybody on Facebook.  There 
are no protections whatsoever and you have no assurance who anybody is.  
I made the mistake of buying something in response to a Facebook ad last 
year.  The ad was very well done.  It looked like a professional outfit.

It turned out to be one sleazy guy in San Diego and had connections to 
important products from China. He would gather up 6 weeks of orders and 
then place his order to China.  I eventually gut the stuff after 5 
months and it was complete crap -- nothing like the ad.  There really 
isn't any recourse on Facebook.

At least with eBay, there is a system of building a positive reputation 
as a buyer or seller, and an organization in place to help resolve any
