I put some Tripp suitcases on Ebay - clearly stated the area and pick up only. Buyer messaged asking where we were, told him XXXXXX as per the ad and he asked if I could drive to Derby to meet him halfway. I'm in Manchester.
How did you ruin his livelihood over one item. I think it's his attitude that will ruin his "livelihood. What he did was abuse. You've every right to complain to Ebay. He really should not be in business if he can't handle the fact that buyers change their minds.
I once bought a RayBan sunglasses case on ebay from a private seller, I knew it was fake because a) I had a real case and b) I also had a fake one from china, which this matched exactly.
It was cheap and I wasn't that bothered but left neutral (not negative) feedback.
I wish I still had the abusive message I received. The seller, in the worst possible grammar full of spelling mistakes and no punctuation, told me I was clearly too poor to afford the real thing if I didn't recognise it when I saw it and that she was a solicitor and was going to sue me and leave me homeless and that unless I retracted the feedback she would be turning up at my door. Oh and I should take the case into Boots and they would prove to me it was real.
Course you will love, that's what I told her. Not heard anything else since.
I sold my old iPad on eBay nothing wrong with it just been brought a mini as a gift. Buyer claimed it didn’t work wouldn’t charge etc. It was fine when I was using it, he sent it back and it was clear he had been using it and it was synced to his iPhone still. Bloody hate eBay won’t buy or sell on it now
I bought a small quite cheap item from eBay. Seller said item had been dispatched, but hadn't shown up a fortnight later and seller was non responsive. Opened an eBay appeal. Seller said they'd send item then . Waited until appeal window closed and got my refund. Seller sent many messages saying I should have waited longer over a period of 2 days, got eBay to shut them up. 4 days later item shows up, I notice the postal date on it - a day after the case was closed. Contacted eBay and told them I had no intention of paying to return the item, eBay said they'd sort it but I suspect they may have considered it a non eBay sale and did nothing about it.
