Selling a dress on ebay last week - brand new size 10 ( still with tags on) With 2 hrs to go - and a few bids, thouight i'd have a look to see if any others the same and if so at what price they might be ( to see any compition i suppose)... well shocked to go through pics and see my dress again.... except it wasn't me, MY PIC and MY WORDS ... but saying used and size 14-16 (so not at all the dress in the pic) I know (in hindsight) should have waited until mine sold..... BUT stupidly i got cross and emailed seller asking why she didn't use her own details (the pic was from (MY bedroom)- abusive email returned from her - then got more bids and sold to chap. Odd thing was all the bids after the email came from people in the same area as the one using my details.
Buying didn't pay until yesterday, has an unverified address and when i contacted him just to confim for posting he asked me to post to an alternative.
HELP.... am i just being too suspicious (my gut feeling is that all these bidders are connected and somehow they will get item and claim its not as good /maybe even send back hers in return!!!.... i'm just not sure what to do.... and i know am probably being stupid... but would appreciate any advice ( other than - should have waited until your item sold (reported to ebay and they took her item off - now back on with dif pic and words)
he paid by paypal. I have sent him a message to say (that to be covered by paypals sellers protection i can only send out to listed address, and asked him to contactme again..... it just seems odd and is fueling my suspicions ( am a bit inspector clueso like anyway, doesn't take much to make me suspicious!)
he has a resonable hisrtory one neg for non paying. the others are newish. Hers is still for sale (i got a good price). Yes I know i have to put it down to experience, .... maybe it was that glass too many that made me rant
flightattendant2 - had a reply from him to say ok to post to the listed address (unverified)... so thats what i've done...recorded/signed for, though the extra 70p was worth while. Her item no is 110299782879.
Yes I did report her, and the item was pulled quickly ( I was suprised ). She has since put on again with her own words and very tiny pic poss taken on a phone. I know It may have been stupid, but you get really fed up when you try to do it properly and others just rip you off.
