Great thread, just read it. So everyone has added chasmeng to their blocked bidder list I presume. I looked over mine and saw this username. Someone on a message board tipped me off to this eBayer a long time ago. Not sure I'd expect payment if that's the high bidder!

Geez ... is that a real buyer ID? If not, hilarious spoof.

I've added him to my BBL, but it's sort of academic. Because of feeBay's new no negative buyer FB policy, I'm holding my listings and if I do list again, it'll only be to blow out what inventory I had been building up before the policy change. If they want to muzzle my freedom of speech and keep me from using FB to warn other sellers of buyers like our little friend here, John Donahoe can suck the sweat off my left nut.

Question (and it's probably been answered elsewhere): Anyone know any good auction sites for selling "better" through couture grade preowned men's wear? I'm a good small seller (844 total buyer/seller FB's, 1 neg/2 neutrals in 8 years.) I want to get away from feeBay because of their policy changes, but the next-biggest sites don't seem to have a lot of what I tend to sell.

I can see where you are coming from as a seller A Harris. But don't you think that the buyer is in the right here?

I sympathize because the seller wasn't the one who lost the package, USPS did, so I can feel their pain. In general think it depends on the situation. In situations where buyers specifically choose not to buy insurance, I think the seller's responsibility ought to end once they drop off the package (even though ebay and paypal apparently don't agree.) If the seller just doesn't offer insurance or forgets to insure then I think ethically they should be on the hook if the buyer doesn't receive the item.

FWIW I simply asked for a shipping quote to Vancouver and paid it, insurance was never discussed. I believe it was included, though. In any case, I still feel the contract was for delivery. The seller was reported and hopefully I'll get a refund, although seller emailed me after being reported to say that USPS is still trying to figure out what happened to the package.

They used to count only 1 if you had multiple transactions from a single source, whereis now each transaction would count. (I think there are more details to it, but they escape me right now)

They have a lot of Burberry trenches for sale at very reasonable prices and I'm just wondering whether they are legit...here is an example:

The detail photos for the fabric labels show an address for Burberry: 1350 AVENUE OF AMERICAS ... I think that should read Avenue of THE Americas. It's the kind of small but telling mistake a PRC counterfeiter would make.

Also - Burberry's US corporate HQ is located there, not a flagship store - it's a very high-end office building, not retail. Why put that on their clothing labels? Burberry isn't one of my favorite brands, so I don't know - maybe that's exactly how their labels read. Personally, I smell a good-looking fake that's nevertheless a fake.

I made a submit your best offer on a suit and this person was highly offended by it. She felt that I was trying to get something for nothing.

All she had to do was say that she declined my offer and that would have been the end of it . She also could have offered me her minimum price. Instead she emails me telling me how I am trying to get something for nothing. A very emotional and unprofessional attitude. Some of the negative feedbacks show this. She did not like it when I told her to keep her old suit. Watch yourself with this one guys.

I would say stay with one of the more reputable sellers and enjoy your clothing.

Best To All,
LTD

Just had the same, horrible experience with whyme35. I have purchased from this seller before in a fairly recent transaction, yet the attitude and poor service continue. I do not recommend this seller.

Well, seems like whyme35 perpetually in a bad mood. Here was her response today to a simple cordial request for larger photos to be sent to my email: "Excuse me but these shoes are used and bottom soles will have some wear to them, you need to shop retail i prefer not to deal with someone with minor issue as bottom soles when i have several pictures listed." Here was my reply: Wow--that was unexpectedly rude, confrontational, condescending, caustic and bitter response to kindly request for larger photos to be emailed. I know the shoes are used, but I would have liked to have seen the used soles better since your photos are not only unclear and out of focus, but also very small. I have been on eBay since 1999, have a 100% feedback both selling and buying and have never encountered someone as obviously bitter and angry as you. Sounds like you have lots to "deal" with. FWIW, you're building quite a negative reputation for yourself in the "Style" fora--a lot of high end buyers are (and in larger numbers) shying away from your auctions. Please don't respond if you are still angry or in a bad mood. Should have figured that out by what she chose for a username!

Here was her response: "I think i do okay without you or your style forum...my customers been dealing with me for a while and it is people like you that make sellers like this. Petty questions on a $400 shoe when you see my auction details what it listed it as ...any common sense person would know that shoes worn have some wear at bottom, if you are that questionable on items that are worn like i said you need to shop retail and since i blocked all that i feel will be problems my feedback is excellent ...not dealing with those that have issues on used clothing, by the way you were blocked right after email. So you can take this back to your style forum, because some others work for a living and not hang on boards and i can care less what they think." -whyme35 Simply incredible--we made her this way! <sigh>

Whyme's pictures seem ok to me - they're pretty clear, and there are quite a few of them (about 5 or 6 per shoe auction). I'm not surprised she might ignore bidders who ask for more and more pictures - she might have made the quite rational decision that certain bidders are not worth the trouble and are more prone to returns and such.

It wasn't the quantity of the photos, but the quality and size. The shoes I was interested had photos, but they were small, and the ones of the sole was out of focus. I simply asked if she could email me larger photos. Is that unreasonable? Does that justify the rudeness of her emails? What happens when you do purchase the items, and detect a flaw if just asking for more photos created such a reaction?
