I live in the inner city, not some white picket fence middle class suburb. My former neighbor across the street was a drug dealer. (He got arrested for siccing his dogs on someone.) There used to be a guy living in his car on my street until it caught fire because he left a lit cigarette in it. As I've said before, my parking lot is a meeting spot for prostitutes.

Hopefully the package turns up. I'm not hopeful.

I'm not trying to be an insensitive ass, but why do you live there? Is it by choice or can you not afford to move?

Similar situation, was excited my new pipe for my motorcycle was supposed to be here, we've got parcel lockers, i get the box out, i'm like wow that seems small...i got plush chickens.  

 

Realize its addressed to a guy across the street, I assume the mailman accidentally swapped parcel keys, i'm going to hold his plush chickens hostage though until i get my pipe!

Ebay resolution is a total farce. Buyer claimed I sold him a size 30 pants even though I had a picture with a measuring tape showing 33 inch waist, just as it was listed..but they still decided with him! If a measuring tape does not decide in a seller's favour against the opinion of a buyer, what's the point?

The experience? When you're young, dumb and full of ***, it's something you have to do.

Suggest you all add habtu22 to your block lists.

 

He opened a not as described case for a pair of jeans with the reason "material not as expected" (listing included all known aspects of the material, including that it was a poly/cotton blend fabric. 

 

 

 

The request was rejected by Ebay Customer Support, but the guy used the normal return process. I suppose I'll have to watch for PayPal cases as well...

Cheap, nice apartment, upcoming neighborhood. Haven't had any problems in 5 1/2 years (knock on wood) except a smashed car window.

I would like to make enough extra money from thrifting to move into a bigger apartment or rental house, but it's tough since my wife just had surgery to fix a broken elbow and will probably need another one to remove scar tissue to regain range of motion.

I think it got delivered to the auto parts store on the corner, so hopefully I can get it Monday.

Weird, the ads I've seen from the 40s/50s all advertise as if they make their own shoes. No clue who would have made in England for them.

Loving this return request... Lady purchased a leather Coach jacket - marked a size Small - and left positive feedback. Then a couple hours later I get a return request, stating it doesn't fit. I figure alright, I'll take it back even though I provided complete measurements, so I approve the return request with the buyer paying return shipping.

Just got a message from her saying:
"-Am I to assume that I will get all of my shippings costs also be refunded when I send the item back as I have already paid $11.95 for shipping to me and now I have to go through my PayPal to purchase the shipping back?
Thank you."

When will people learn to read? Why should I have to cover $12 in shipping costs because you didn't take the time to read an auction description? Should have just denied the return request, and fell back on the fact that I sold it as marked and provided measurements... Guess that's what I get for trying to be nice.

If she already left feedback, just tell her that she is responsible for shipping, as stated in your listing, and as per Ebay's Terms Of Service.

I may have my first ebay encounter with a scammer.

 

Buys a pair of shoes. He's based in Germany. I send him an invoice. No response. Few days later, says if he can change his address. I tell him I can cancel transaction, he can change his address and buy it again. Responds with unintelligible english. I send a cancellation request. In the meantime he sends a request for an invoice to his new address in the US. I call ebay, they say go ahead and send invoice. I do so and he pays. Item is in transit and I get this message just now:

Agreed, which is what I did - got the following back...

"It is costing $21 is shipping back and forth on this item that states a women's Small. Cleary it is NOT[It more in the lines of Mens Large] and for that reason I don't feel the item is Authentic Coach to begin with in which case I will have to report it to eBay and demand that I get payment for all of my Shipping costs included in the refund. Only fair as I bought it for someone who just realized that the size is completely fake. So I will be expecting a return in the amount of $60.00"

Didn't realize sizes are something that can be fake (possible that coach mis-tagged, but not my fault). Going to offer to cover shipping one direction, and then immediately add the buyer to my blocklist and post their user ID here.

Lesson learned; deny the return in the first place, and fall back on the fact that I sold it as marked by mfg and provided measurements in description.
