eBay is a pretty dangerous place to buy or sell bitcoins. It's especially dangerous for sellers. In an effort to help protect buyers and sellers I'm starting a list of eBay scammers. Please post your additions to the list. Scammed party may remain anonymous. Scammers may not.

The primary intention is to protect people but there is also a secondary intention, to give butthurt buyers and sellers an opportunity to make it right. Sometimes, shit happens. It's never too late to make it right.

Digital delivery of coins on eBay is a sure way to get scammed often. If you're selling on eBay switch to selling paper currency. You can ship them media mail for about $2.70 with DCN using the PayPal shipping interface. Be sure to only ship to verified addresses. Never let a new buyer talk you into digital delivery. Selling smaller amounts is safer. Do your best not to be the low hanging fruit that scammers seek out. Your coins will sell no matter what ridiculous fees your charging (Trust me on that).

Here is a site which can help you print paper bitcoins. He makes the source available, I suggest you download it, edit it, and run it locally. http://print.printcoins.com/ check out the "print your own" link. Be sure to kick the guy some coin.
