PayPal chargeback for unauthorized transaction.

What's the laundry list of info to provide to the case? It's been awhile since I've had a chargeback.

Funny, i conducted similar transaction before, but I was the buyer, and it was a Macbook Pro. Meeting in public area, but doggy overall. My worst concern was that after the transaction completed, he would bring his guys in to take the laptop from me. So i was arranging several back up plans including swapping the laptop through several people to avoid the above scenario. Luckily nothing happened. Or prob i watched too much of James Bond movie.

"Everything."  Screen-shots / text files of everything.  The sale itself.  If it was an auction, their bid(s).  Your usps receipt and confirmation.  Any feedback they left.  The tracking #.  Whatever else you have communication-wise (i.e. if you send them a message saying "thank you blah blah your package will be shipped in such-and-such day).

 

If you did everything right, and PayPal said "Your item sold - time to ship" they will cover it.  May take a bit of time for them to review the case after you've uploaded everything.

Talk about an eBay sale gone wrong, and all (well, mostly) my fault...

 

Kinda wordy:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Guy bought a large item on eBay, I figured worst-case it might cost me $50 +/- to ship UPS Ground.

Bring the thing over to UPS, they quote me $99 ground shipping + $25 to pack and ship.  The dude paid $110 for the thing with free shipping.  Obviously, I'm not gonna use UPS.

So bought the big box from UPS ($15) and figured I'd pack it at home and ship USPS for cheaper.  I got an online usps quote for $45 for "standard shipping", so I said great.

Brought it to USPS and they quote me $98 to ship it.  I'm like - huh - online said $45.  Lady says that must be with an online discount - I'd go back home and print that label and have it picked up.

On the way home, a big truck swerves into my lane coming around a corner, and I have to swerve off the road into the grass, and there's a big hunk of concrete which I nail.

I get home and have two flat tires on the right side.  Barely made it home.

Back online with usps, I get the same quote, but there is no option to purchase that postage online - it says "not available" when I try to buy it.

 

End up having to cancel and refund.

 

But wait - there's more.

 

I'm supposed to have a 5-year wheel & tire warranty (which I'm thinking by now this is all a good thing, because I can also get my rim replaced for free that I scuffed last weekend at Buffalo Exchange), but when I call the dealer they say it's still in the original owner's name and I have to have it transferred first.  So I call the warranty company and they say, long story short, it's not transferable and not under warranty.

I call the dealer back and they say to call roadside assistance and they give me the #...when I call it's a fucking sex-chat line and apparently my phone bill is gonna be charged for something even though I hung up after 12 seconds (seriously, I was not in the mood for sex chat).  So I look the Mercedes roadside # up online and it's an entirely different # - not like it was one digit off or something.  My best guess is that the lady working the phone at the dealer also works this sex chat line at night or something and gave me the wrong #.

 

Anyway, now sitting here waiting for a flatbed to bring my car to the dealer (at least the tow is free), and I do remember their tire prices being comparable to anywhere else...and I just printed a rebate coupon so I got that going for me.

 

But dang, man, what a messed up sale this turned out to be.

I figure it's karma some something...not sure what, but I was a bad apple when I was a kid, so, karma.

Cripes....the guy whose order I had to cancel has messaged me 8 times since this afternoon, suggesting alternate ways to ship this thing.

 

FedEx (too expensive)

DHL (don't do residential pickups)

Make the box smaller (can't do)

uship.com (too much $)

ABF (too much $)

OnTrac (don't serve my area)

...and a couple others I never heard of that don't serve my area or too spendy.

  

I've already cancelled and refunded the guy, so at this point there is no sale / no money.  And just now I get a message "I got to have it.  Send me your zip code and I'll check to see how much it will cost to get it here because I got to have it", ..., when all possible options have already been explored including UPS and USPS, and the options above.

 

How can I politely tell this guy to shove off - no sale - I'm sorry for the 10th time - stop messaging me?  Because I'm the one who cancelled it I'm not sure if he can leave me a negative or not...so I don't want to just tell him to go pound sand - I've never had to cancel a sale before.

Computer hardrive crashed...I'm soo F'd.

Any Genius Bar experts on here who can walk me through recovering files before trying to reformat?

Any chance he can give you a negative feedback right now? I would block that guy asappp

That's what I don't know. I never had to cancel a sale before, so I don't know if they can leave feedback or not. If not, I'll block in a heartbeat - really did everything I could and apologized 10 times.

Ask him if he's willing to split shipping costs with you if it's that important to him.

Yes, I had a person leave me a neutral because I had to cancel the sale because of an incomplete address.  Have to  call ebay to get that one removed.

Hi All, is this a men's or women's jean jacket? Lots of listings on ebay list it as a women's jacket, sz large.

 

The buttons tell me it is a guys jacket though. Is it really a boy's jacket instead?

 

Are people just listing it as a women's due the size Large on such a tiny jacket?

 

Thanks!

while I suppose it *could* be a boys, the sleeve vs body length makes me think feminine. I don't remember any of my denim jackets from when I was a kid having such short torsos, but that was in the 80s and things have changed a lot
