The buyer has been pretty understanding so far so you might be right about Australians. However, in this case, I printed the label directly from eBay so there was nothing I could mess up.

So the other Drake's ties I've sold were gone within a day; why isn't this selling, is it that ugly? :violin:

How many have you sold? I have several listed and sometimes they take their time like anything else.

Not really a desirable tie I'd guess, not to mention that it's wool and many people are hunting for more spring colors/materials at the moment.

PS - that is a copy and paste, I did not edit his text lol8%5B1%5D.gif 

PPS - Would prob add this guy to your blocked bidder list bbocchieri

Versace V2 was made in the USA for a brief time in the USA by Hickey Freeman in the early 90s as a license. Not sure how you can "prove" that but as long as it has a shot of the made in USA tag in the listing I dont see how that isnt remorse.

Thanks, was googling for a bit looking for  some website that talked about them being made in the USA, no luck.

@Brianpore
I sold a couple Made In USA V2 jackets a while back.
Some ass hat opened a fake claim on a Versace collection belt because it wasn't made in Italy, I explained the whole diffusion line being made in different countries think but he was dead set on it being fake. I took the return and it's the belt I wear everyday to work now lol

Welp, just got my first defect in about 2 years. But this just happened finally, so everything is alright.

Jacket is tagged 42R as well
2 minutes closed in my favor

Man, I haven't gotten this message for ages...

 

I'm pondering just shipping it and dealing with it later. I've already reported him.

 

Haven't shipped yet. WWSD (What Would @SpooPoker do?)

. . . so I wouldn't know WWSD, but I hate this kind of thing because they are essentially asking you to create fraud exposure for yourself. Bad form. My general approach is to say that I cannot fill out the form untruthfully, although I am perfectly happy to use a generic term like "used jacket" rather than the eBay auto-populated "$4500 Hermes cashmere sport coat", for example. I have occasionally seen a typo in the price field, but I would be more likely to "make helpful adjustments" if they don't ask than if they do. Furthermore, I would remind the buyer that special requests should be made and confirmed in advance of purchase, and that was not done in this case. Classic presumptive close.

P.S. looks like Nimoy pic was from prior scavenger hunt . . .

I ended up speaking with an Ebay CSR, just to cover myself.

 

I have cancelled the order, citing "buyer requested" as the reason.

 

Since the buyer requested falsified customs forms, they will remove any defect that result from this transaction.

 

I have no issue putting used jacket in the item field on the customs form, if it's a used jacket (this is not); but changing the value is something my listings specifically state that I cannot do. And asking me to remove the tags on an NWT item? That opens me up for a SNAD claim, since he'd be receiving the item in an altered state from the way it is listed.

Wow, removing NWT tags? Missed that part, somehow. And asking you to renege on your stated policy with an illegal request? That's next-level douchebaggery, right there. Well handled.nod[1].gif

This auction has free postage. It costs me about $12 to send this, not counting the eBay and Paypal fees. This person actually expects me to sell him a high end tie at a loss.

What goes through these people's heads?

 

It's one of the things that puzzle me the most in online selling, but I'm also a total rookie. Maybe it is supposed to be a bargaining position, but I find it mildly insulting. I struggle to see where you guys would meet price-wise. I was thinking that maybe they toss out huge amounts of ridiculous offers in the hope that statistically some sellers will accidentally accept. But with the two-click system, this seems unlikely on second thought. 

 

I had a guy offer me $30, $35, then $36 for a pair of $70 OBO boots, shipping included. I laughed when I saw his final offer. $1 up? Sure, distant stranger, that'll change my mind! Now I can earn $0.63 on the deal if the conversion rate goes my way.
