Facebook really is the wild west of comic book selling. Watch any live auctions and that will tell you. 

Honestly I tell myself everyone has to start somewhere, but they want you to think they are professionals
when obviously they are not. Its the modern area I tend to avoid the most. There seems to be more problems
in that area with new collectors in the market that have a much different mentality for how to sell comics.

What is nice is Paypal will eventually freeze your account for doing it. Ive seen several that all of sudden are 
complaining their account got frozen.

 

Does PayPal freeze accounts based on activity or someone reporting it?

From what I have gathered it really depends on how much  you use F&F. 
I would imagine big money would trigger it as well as multiple transactions over time.

I was constantly sending money to/from my wife And we have different last names. PayPal never did anything. Thousands of $.

I think they felt sorry for you after Ebay banned you. :baiting:

All kidding aside I think they have the ability to tell the difference.

I have done a few live auctions on FB.  It's a good way to get rid of some books quickly.  It's tough to get viewers though...if I get 12 or more viewers, that's a good sale.  Expect low ballers of course but I do it mainly for fun and interaction.  Have a few beers, sell some books, meet some peeps.
