Sleazy Ebay Seller - Page 2

post #16 of 42
Don't mess with this unethical scam.
post #17 of 42
One problem here is that the seller's account is brand new; it will cost him nothing to ditch it. But if the OP leaves a negative, he'll get one in return. Something to think about, is all.

first time ebayer should not even be an excuse. anyone old enough should know that reneging on a contract or something you shake hands over because someone else offers a better deal later is just unethical. well, if a hundred dollars is worth losing your dignity, i dont care he stays anonymous, still you lose your dignity, i guess for some people money is the bottom line.

for most of us here, there are some things more important than money.

I have learned not to deal with first time sellers on Ebay. Let us know who he is so we can stay away.

My bad on the BL, I'm not crazy about Black Label, so didn't even think of it.
And yes, it was the 42L. I normally don't buy from people unless they have a boatload of positive reviews and few or no negatives. Unfortunately this time I really liked the jacket and decided to take a chance. Oh well, live and learn, at least I'm not out the bucks.

Perhaps you've already made your choice, but my .02.

Politely inform the seller that you have a contract. Inform of possible consequences of not honoring it.

See if this gets desired result (jacket at your winning bid).

As a seller and buyer on ebay, I always try to make sure that the buyer/seller not honoring his/her contract is fully aware of what they are doing. Some people are sleazy, but some are just idiots.

This is why a lot of bad sellers and purveyors of counterfeits have no bad feedback. Also why I stay away from all but a few trusted sellers.

BTW, this is very likely NOT his first sale, just his first sale under this name after ditching his last name due to bad feedback or eBay investigation. This is why I almost never buy from a seller with few feedbacks--not because they are new, but because they are most likely bad sellers under a new name.

I have bought from newer sellers after looking to see what other items they were selling. If it looked like the kind of variety you would expect from an estate sale or a divorce it can be worth the calculated risk (clothing all one size, or only one or two pieces of clothing among other household items). If all the items are similar, such as a large quantity of name brand shirts with a variety of sizes, stay away!

exactly what i was thinking. that and a good sale. much more important if you can find one even though you dont need it OR dont have any money to spend.

but another thing is you better report it to the ebay. let them know about it so they can take appropriate actions against this seller.

Scores of eBay transactions and not one unpleasant experience. Quite the opposite. I gauge a seller by the nature of their response to a question. Never fails me.

If you're really annoyed by him, make a point of following his future auctions and contacting his bidders to warn them off. That is something I would do, but I have no need as of yet. I have had a remarkably good time with eBayer even after almost 300 transactions.

i envy both of you. im pretty new to ebay (selling and buying) and have already been given one heavy blow by one fraudulent buyer. but that was back then when i didnt know better about delivery confirmation and confirmed addresses and such.

What the hell? This has NOTHING to do with the OP's question. I'm really taken aback by this comment.

C'mon John. Don't make me have to edit your posts man. You know that it was totally unwarranted. Keep it contained to the morass we call the Current Events subforum please.
