    I would call ebay and ask. I dont deal with returns but I think they said something about hassel free returns (with no case open and no low star ratings) not affecting your defect rating. Call and ask, they should be able to tell you 100% in under 3 min.

    Hey guys. If I wanted to list a lot of 2 shirts - do I put it under mixed lots - or just shirts?

    Thanks

    Just do it in whatever category you would sell them, in this case shirts. That's what I've done and it works.

    1. Search for something similar to what you have. See which category has more results.
    2. Check brian's, wes', and spoo's listings for items similar to what you have. Note how they list theirs.
    3. Make decision.

    So, looks like this guy was pulling quite the scam. 4 negative feedback in the last three days. Thank goodness for ebay buyer protection.

    I wonder if these people actually somehow keep the money. Your account is linked and I assume they'll just forcibly take the money back?

    I have to keep reminding myself that for every asshole you sell something to, there's hundreds of perfectly reasonable people. After just getting this last neg overturned because, luckily, the buyer made a super dick move, I'm walking on eggshells when anyone contacts me with the slightest issue/question with a sale. Not going to bother with the details, but I'm def. rolling over a lot quicker than I used to, thankfully I have the volume to justify it, as well as an ever growing blocked list.
    That is all...

    Withdraw money, close account, cancel credit card...before cases start opening.

    He'll get his tho - karma is a bitch.

    I always assumed PayPal worked with the credit bureau and would fuck up your shit for stuff like that.

    Dude's shit was probably already on the way to being fucked up. And depending on the amount of the scam could see felony charges if caught. As OP said, thank goodness for buyer protection.

    Assuming all of the auctions over the 10 day period in question were fraudulent, the seller scammed almost $8,800. Sounds like grand theft to me.

    Oops. That's the one thing about most Charvet ties, their silk is so damn fragile.
