So I sold those two Gurka bags awhile ago to some asshole on the bay. He sends me a message saying that he wasn't happy with his purchase and that he wants a refund. I tell him that the bags were accurately described and that they were sold "as is", which is what I put in the description along with a no return policy. Long story short, he opens up a case, after providing ebay with additional pictures, they side with him. I get the bags back, and they look like this.
This cocksucker completely destroyed the bottoms of the bags so that his pictures would reflect his claims to ebay. On top of that, his negative feedback fucked with my powerseller status and now paypal is holding all my payments for 21 days! What the fuck! I just got completely screwed by this motherfucker!
Oh man, I'd be livid! I feel for ya man, I've been there before (some of you folks who've been around a few years likely remember the Polo bear sweater.). Not exactly the same but similar.
The thing I don't understand is how can one bad transaction mess up an account in otherwise good standing? I can understand multiple bad transactions causing eBay to intervene but one? That's ridiculous. Raise some hell with eBay. Tip: ask for a supervisor right off the bat. Don't deal with customer service reps. They will just piss you off so you hang up and they get rid of you.
Good luck, Easy. Hope to hear some good news soon!
eBay rant (Click to show)
eBay is really getting on my nerves lately. eBay links any accounts together that are logged in from the same IP multiple times. She's logged in to her eBay before while at my parent's place for various occasions. A couple weeks ago my wife got a email notice that her account had a selling restriction put on it because it was linked to my brother's account and his was suspended for having too many negatives. She called them up and yelled at them. They basically told her that it was like he committed a crime and she was going to jail for it and there was nothing she could do.
And it has 5 days left to boot!
Had a rather interesting day today.
Passed on this shirt because I could find nothing about it. Had some very cool details though (chest pocket w/ twine button loop, etc). Cut like a woman's (very small and short) but buttoned like a men's. Full picture came out blurry so no use in posting that. Bad pass?
Then this piece reminded me of why I hate Halloween at the thrift stores. Some ass-clown destroyed this beautiful Belvest blazer. Recent. Side vented. Eu 52 R. Had a big rip on the back. Looks like they spilled pop on the front near the lapels. Not only that but they decided to "shorten" it.
I did manage to find a few cool things.
Icebreaker. Men's XXL. Fits like an L-XL. Keeper for now.
Adam Lipes blouse for the Mrs.
Cool VIctorian-era kerosene lamp. Made by B&H. Sadly the original glass chimney is long gone. It appears someone dinged the top up pretty good as well. Maybe fixable? Who knows. In very nice shape otherwise for it's age.
