Ebay rip us off!

Can't believe it. I listed an item on Ebay 10 days ago and paid $19 more for what they call their "Feature Plus" option. After 8 days, I found odd the lack of interest from potential buyers.
I then decided to check that my item was on the top of the page in the category I have chosen to be (That's what I paid those $19 for!) and you know what? My item was nowhere to be seen.
I then decide to have a live chat with Ebay. That girl from their customer service starts telling me that it doesn't mean that I am always on the top of my category by paying those $19 more! What the? She also tells me then "Hey look, you are on the top of the 2nd page .."..indeed suddenly my item appears on the top of the 2nd page. Still I am not happy with this.
I obviously argued the fact that when paying those $19, I thought I would have appeared on the first page and not on xx page! They had only 2 sellers featuring on the top of the first page, whom had paid the feature plus option. Then while I am chatting with Ebay, a new seller (selling some fake Armani suits.Brand new with tag $250 buy now) is being advertised on the top of the 1st page where I should be for godsake! I am fuming now...

Anyway the result is I've lost my $19 obviously because to complain, I had to fax or write a letter! What the fxxk!
I was so pissed off that I had to close the live chat window and guess what? a minute after, my item was on the top of the first page.
If I would not have found out by myself, they would not have shown my item on the top at all.
Ebay ripped me off so watch out next time you are listing on Ebay.

Those Armani suits sound good. Do you have a link? or do I search "Fake Armani Suits?"

If you want to complain, you can send a telegraph or a message in a bottle will do.

Have you tried posting on the buying and selling forum? Some of the other forum members might want to purchase your clothes?

Good idea--let's see how long he lasts on the first page over there.

For popular & more expensive items, there will be a lot of "featured items". Let's say 50. That means your item only has 2% chance of getting up there. This is pretty standard. The same goes for online ads (for Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.,).
