This is something new and amazing.
I have found either the ballsiest ebay buyer or the dumbest.
I sold a pair of Shoes a couple weeks ago. The buyer sent me an offer and it was a good offer and I only had a few hours to go. I decided at the last minute to take the bird in the hand instead of relisting. I sent the buyer an invoice and nothing happened. So, four days later a case is opened and he doesn't pay of course. So, I relist them for Buy it now for the same amount of his offer and someone buys them pretty quick and pays immediately.
I got an email yesterday from a buyer saying, "I paid for these and its been two weeks! Where are my shoes?" I checked the recent listing quickly. He paid immediately and they shipped the next morning. I checked the tracking and realized it has only been 3 days. Obviously, I was confused. While I am trying to figure out how to respond, I get an email that a case has been opened because the buyer hasn't received them. I was getting ready to write my response when I realize the buyer's ebay handle isn't the same. Then, I figured it out.
The guy who was complaining about not receiving them and who also filed the case IS THE BUYER WHO NEVER PAID! He has an unpaid item case filed against him and he is now complaining IN A CASE, that he hasn't received them!
That's a pretty interesting scam.
Step 1: Buy item
Step 2: Do not pay for item.
Step 3: Ignore emails and ignore unpaid item case
Step 4. Open new case because he hasn't received item!
The options for me to respond to the case were upload tracking, send a message, or refund the buyer!
