To think he deserved what he got?

Bought and expensive drill on ebay. 3 weeks later and way past the delivery date it had not arrived and no tracking number. No reply to several messages so I opened a claim.
The cheeky sod then adds a false tracking number belonging to someone else's parcel which shows it was delivered today! I contacted Yodel who said the tracking number did not relate to my address as I suspected.
He then gets the case resolved in HIS favour as tracking shows delivered.

Well I am not having this!
After much ado I convince ebay that he is a bloody liar and get a refund.
I was so angry I left negative feedback and called him a Thief. Am I wrong to do this?

Why would you be wrong to do that?

Yabu but only because he’ll be able to get the feedback removed. You should’ve left it at saying that the tracking number provided was a false one

It’s not nice to be dishonest and be a thief

Feedback remains. Apparently it is not against ebay rules to call someone a thief.

It's good you left the feedback, maybe it'll put others off buying from him and possibly not getting their money back

It’s defamation unless you can prove it. It will be removed if the seller asks

It's not nice for people in the receiving end either. How many other people have they conned or tried to con.

I wouldn't buy tools off eBay anyway so many of the tools stolen from trades in the country end up on there and eBay give zero fucks about it.
