Yes I do watch ACA, but I am always very aware of the garbage they put out over the news and current affairs programmes.
I know first hand how most journalists work, I have been on the end of their deceipt and lies and wouldn't trust them at all. The thing is though, and this is what makes me very annoyed, is that a lot of people use these type of programmes to get what they can out of the general public. I'm sure ACA were inundated with people wanting to 'help' this lady out by sending in their hard earned cash because her kids were left without their 'trip'.

Relatively easy to distinguish. If it appears on your MyEbay page as a second chance offer, then it's to be seen as as normal as any other Ebay offer. See http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/personal-offer.html
However, also such official second chance offers can be abused. But then the buyer can use the normal Ebay processes.

And it has to appear in a category of its own on the MyEbay page - to get it as a message via Ebay is not quite enough, as Ebay themselves point out (cf. link above):Ebay wrote:5. eBay will never send a Second Chance Offer email with the subject line "Message from eBay Member."
