I addressed every single one of their concerns with a logical explanation and they said "the guy at Saks Fifth Avenue said he couldn't say whether is was real or not. I messaged you first about this rather than just opening a claim, so you should be thanking me." Yes, because a salesmen at a department store is the end all be all of authenticity, especially when they're not allowed to authenticate. Regardless, I tell them to open a return so we can get this done.

 

30 minutes later: *A case claiming something you sold is counterfeit has been opened*

 

:censored:

 

 

Such bullshit. Is the guy at Saks Fifth Avenue an expert? I don't think I've ever encountered anyone in a shop who really knew his stuff, except that one guy at the NMLC in the South Bay.

A few months ago I had a counterfeit claim on a made in Thailand Brooks Brothers corduroy sport coat. The buyer claimed that "a salesman at the Brooks Brothers store" told him that it is a cheap Thai counterfeit. I asked him for the name of the salesman but he did not provide it.

Yep. Like anybody counterfeits BB Thailand sport coats, puts authentic looking price tags on them, and then marks through the inner label with a Sharpie.

You can't do anything about it. I just choose to laugh at some dipshit whose personal integrity is worth less than $10.

Anybody getting this type of request to cancel the sell? This is my 3rd one in the last 3 or 4 weeks.


"Hi I am very sorry but my nephew got a hold of my phone and somehow selected buy it now I am assuming but I had no intention of doing so. I am very sorry but please cancel the purchase. Sorry for the unnecessary hassle."

This guy has over 300 positive feedbacks:lurk:

  4. Original winner pays out of the blue for original auction.
  5. I cancel 2nd chance offer and ship item through eBay shipping.
  6. Today, I just got a message from eBay saying, "You successfully canceled an order ... You already refunded the buyer for this order, so you're all set."

I never refunded the buyer. I canceled his bid before he paid, then he paid after cancellation. I checked PayPal and it looks like the money is still there. Did I screw up somehow and lose eBay protections?

How easy it for a kid to bid from your phone?

Okay, now I'm really paranoid that this is some sort of scam eBay hasn't caught on to yet.

Quite easy actually. My kids once bid 2xx on a $40 shirt. Luckily there was enough time left for me to retract my bid. I now make sure to exit out of Ebay before placing my phone within his reach.

That feeling after you win an auction and want to see what else they have for sale and accidentally check their feedback as a seller:

Speaking of feedback:

 

 

Thank you sir!

We could make that a thing, but imagine how some of the bigger sellers here feedback would look if every SFer did that to them.

Actually that would still be funny.  It would be even funnier if a seller's entire first page looked like that.

ima pay for it thursday

 

Would you guys contact eBay now and cancel the order?  Or should I just wait 2 days, he hasn't paid, then file a claim?


I would be tempted to cancel just because they used "ima".

Sometimes I love modern technology... I just closed out an EBay item not received case over the phone while sitting in my car waiting for the first shop of the day to open.

Very frustrating. eBay doesn't have specialized customer service people for clothing and accessories, so they have absolutely no clue how to analyzing a counterfeit claim.

The only counterfeit claim I had was a pair of NWT Ralph Lauren green label pants. The buyer had 10 feedback, did not message me requesting a return, and did not respond to the messages I sent him after I saw his negative feedback. I suspected this buyer was the same person who lost an eBay case 2 weeks prior and went on a rant telling me he was taking myself and eBay to court (lol). Naturally eBay didn't find it the least bit suspicious that a buyer would leave feedback without messaging me and never respond to my messages that asked him if he'd like to return the pants. Totally normal behavior from a buyer.

Go get this shit - talk about idiotic buyers...

A buyer messages me about a shirt. The username has "dmontez" in it. His tone is a red flag. He submits low ball offers and I decline them. He runs out of offers. I block his username. A couple hours later I get an offer on the same shirt from a different user. I decline the offer and assume it's the same guy trying to bid from a different account, but I can't block this second username because I'm driving. Both usernames have hardly any feedback. Before I can get home he submits an offer on the shirt that is automatically accepted by the auction. I know I'm going to cancel the order as soon as I get home, and when I start the process my suspicions are confirmed when I see the shipping address is Desi Montez.

He sends me a message asking why his order was canceled and I tell him that I canceled it because he tried to buy the shirt from multiple accounts. It's nothing personal, I tell him, I'm just protecting myself as a seller and both myself and eBay believe this behavior is a red flag (I had already called eBay).

He responds by saying "You must have me confused with someone else, this is the first time I've messaged you." I point out that both of his accounts are connected via the one username being dmontez and the shipping address on the other account being Desi Montez. I also told him that his dishonesty on the matter reinforces why I canceled the order. He responds:

I am having trouble figuring out the size of an Oxxford Sport Coat

 

P2P 23"

Shoulder 18" 

30.5 BOC. 

 

The 23" P2P doesn't make sense with a shoulder of only 18?
