    I love words.

    STANDOUT Curtis Mens Brocade Paisley SOFT Cotton Dress Shirt CLUB NR

    I kid with a few of them but remember, that adjective isn't always corny or what you feel the item is, its the personality of the buyer. Someone who buys that shirt is not shy, is not afraid of prints, is probably full of himself, wants the attention.

    For this shirt, it might help to not fold the shirt under itself. Would display the otherwise difficult to see lines, especially in thumbnail. In a quick glance this looks like a crazy pillowcase with a blood stain near the top.

    I just get this case open.... no joke, the ebay guy I called was laughing on the phone...

    Quote:
    • What link to what description?
    • Arrived late - Paid on Friday, shipped on Monday Priority Mail, arrived Wednesday...
    • Not able to give honest feedback?? - Left pos feedback with "This experience sucked"
    • Picture (12 high quality photos from all angles) were misleading?
    • Description said "OK to Fair Condition"

    [​IMG] I see no reason why this wont be an easy win for buyers remorse when I escalate it in 3 days but got a good laugh out of it. Oh yea... and welcome to the black list buddy.

    I hope this was sarcasm.



    I think I should have no problem getting my negative feedback removed now:

    I will change the feedback if you refund 50% of my purchase.

    Trying to decide if I'm being paranoid or scammed.



    Bid and won a Breville Barista BES860XL Monday morning in a 24 hour auction. Immediately paid. As the seller and I are both in the same city, I offered to meet for local pickup to save them some shipping costs (auction was free shipping). Monday afternoon, the seller put up another auction for the same item, which sold for $100 more than mine did. Got kind of suspicious, so I started looking through his closed auctions. The seller hadn't been selling kitchen appliances until May 23rd - between then and June 3rd, he listed 13 various appliances, almost all using stock photos, and made almost $8800 in 12 days. And none of these recent auctions has left feedback, so theres no way for me to know if he shipped nay of these items.

    So here's the paranoid part. It's Thursday, I've messaged the seller twice and heard nothing. No shipping notification. I can't open a case until 10 days after auction close, and the seller then has 10 days to respond. Any chance this guy has run a big scam, built up some feedback and then run a bunch of sham auctions? Here's a link to his prior sales activity. So, am I totally nuts, or is there something here? Also, since I can't open a case yet, is there any point in calling ebay?

    Why are $200 Nordstroms gift cards selling for $202? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nordstrom-G...3?pt=US_Gift_Certificates&hash=item27e38d37e7
    Wait, there are several like that on there, I'm confused, what's the premise of the scam? I can see selling fictitious items through a stolen PP account and getting your $ that way, how does the buyer play into a scam? Who would pay more for a gift card than they're worth?
    That whole thing seems sketchy.\

    Can you call him and see what he has to say?

    Stock photos on all the listings. Yeah, that's suspicious.

    ^okay, given that something looks fishy there, would you wait until a case could be opened, or call ebay and ask wtf is up with this guy? If he's legit, I can't imagine he wouldn't want to save on shipping a 27 pound espresso machine across town...
