If they say everything is totally free, then this is only a half-truth. After you download the so-called free app, the anti-virus and firewall are disabled. You must pay them money to have them enabled. It may be a great program at protecting your computer, but I hate deceitful advertising and this is very shady, because it's not really totally free. I consider it a half-sham, but there is nothing innocent about it.

It was good 15 years ago. I really enjoyed it. Today, the fees are too high and it seems like I was spending a lot of time opening disputes for non-paying buyers and defective merchandise. People will ask $29.95 for a piece of junk that probably couldn't sell for 99 cents. Then there are the behind the scenes infractions like shell bidding and scams. eBay does offer buyers the opportunity to buy vintage items but beware of the price you will pay! In my opinion, eBay is still the biggest and offers the most stuff, but high fees and frequent scams have kept me away. Sometimes, an open dispute(s) can last for several weeks. To me, eBay's open dispute process is a bit useless especially if there is more than one at a time.

Tip for consumers: Beware!! Read the sellers feedback closely and never completely trust it because some sellers have found ways to manipulate the system. Ask a question, I call it the jerk test. Usually if you receive rude or condescending replay, just say no!

My account was blocked!! First they tagged me as an abusive user, and offered me no information, but they finally came forward and informed me that my email account had been hacked. I signed up for World Cup Soccer and the hack probably came through Russia hackers who claim to be totally innocent always. I was offered admittance back into the site, but I seriously doubt that I will accept. Cyber security is a game of cat and mouse; a difficult business these days of defending users against cyber criminals, but obviously mail.com has much room for improving their cyber defenses. I hate changing my passwords all the time!
