Hmm - looks like eBay switched to AutoCheck.  If you prefer CarFax, I know that people on CL will run them for less than 10 bucks - I did one that way.  Had them send me the first page to verify they ran it, sent them the $, they sent the full report.

The absolute worst being when they know, but won't even mention it, just trying to CYA with "Look at the pictures" and vague or overly general description. Instant business killer.

:cheers: I know that feel bro. But very good condition for used thing is not the same as very good condition for new one. Let's face it.

OK, gang, some next level douchebaggery going on here for an item bought Jan 1. Whaddayathink? Item # was 302176999520. My return policy is 14 days.

Thanks for the insight, fellas. I guess the flip side of that is if I have an item that's not otherwise selling, it could be worth passing all the savings to the buyer, for the sake of just moving the piece.

My $0.02 but if you have an item that isn't selling, donating it would be better than trying to make a couple bucks with the possibility of losing your eBay account forever.

If you really want to move the item, just offer to reduce the list price. Even though you may not get caught, I do too much business on eBay to take that risk over 1 sale. I get suspicious any time someone asks to take a transaction off eBay. I just assume they may already be blocked from bidding/buying from me for some reason.

So wait, he's claiming the item is inauthentic because the buttons are plastic rather than metal?

First off, that would be not as described, not inauthentic.

Two, you're way past the return window, and probably past the feedback window. Isn't it still 45 days from receipt of the item?

 

I would certainly call Ebay and point out that he is falsely claiming inauthentic to try and force a return. They "should" be able to close that.

Thanks, @Fueco, for the correct language to use. Closed in my favor in 2 min.

Interesting claim, though. I have had a number of these Hermes shirts come through, and didn't even examine the buttons on this one super-closely when I was slamming through the photography, as all the prior vintage-y ones I've sold were metal. This one was more recent, so perhaps some freshly-minted MBA at Hermes decided to squeeze COGS and spec plastic ones painted with metallic finish instead. [As an aside, such a finding would add fuel to my decades-long claim that MBAs are ruining the world in their endless pursuit of incremental margin]. Or perhaps they were replacements. I'll carefully examine the next one I kop, since if this guy was correct (notwithstanding the lateness of his claim), I would want to avoid that error in a future listing. Some alternate "metal-look" language will have to suffice . . .
