Oh No, Another Bad Buyer and Seller On Ebay.
Not Another Bad Buyer and Seller On Ebay
I have always enjoyed buying and selling on eBay, but I have run into some bad sellers and some bad buyers. I started with eBay when you didn't have to have a credit card listed. If I sold I paid them by check through the mail. This is just sort of a list of things which happened to me on eBay.
Sellers: some never shipped the item or it was junk when they made it sound like it was great in the auction description.
The problem, you could leave bad feedback, but if you did they would leave you bad feedback even though you paid on time.
Then eBay changed their policy. NO BAD FEEDBACK FOR BUYERS, sounds great, but then when you try to sell something the buyer can leave you bad feedback even though you have bent over backwards to do everything right. They start harassing by email and just complaining over everything. They now get a high on holding bad feedback over your head if you are the seller. On Sally's Trove, you can find out just what it's like to be a seller on eBay.
Lately, I had a woman complain over shipping even though she knew the item was being shipped by parcel post at 4.50. It cost me 4.73 to mail the item. She insisted I should have mailed by first class. First class only goes up to 13 oz. this item was over the weight limit.
Now maybe I'm wrong in all of this, but I don't think I am. I have 100% rating and some people just hate that. She is looking to give me bad feedback and, of course, there is nothing I can do about it because of eBay's new policy. I can complain to eBay about her, but not likely it will help.
I hear now there are more scams going on. It's too bad it's being ruined by bad apples.

The Back And Forth Emails From Buyer
HER: You do realize you could have shipped this little bit of jewelry for around $3 1st class or charged .25 more for shipping and sent it priority mail and the post office even provides a free box.
I hope you have received this item...Here is what I paid to ship this item. Yes, I do know what can be paid for shipping my husband is a retired postal worker.

Mailing Date: Sep. 8, 2008 00:00:00 CDT
Total Shipping Cost: $4.73 USD
HER: Now I am really confused, you knew 1st class was cheaper and faster and you still waited 5 days and the shipped parcel.....wow, never mind what's done is done maybe it will be here in a couple of days, the tracking number says it went thru Atlanta on the 13th.......
ME: I'm sorry if you feel you have to go on at me over this shipping you knew what it was when you bid. Why did you bid if you didn't like the shipping? First Class is only 13 oz. with packaging it's very easy to go over that. When you get the item mail them back and I will give your money back and the shipping it will cost you to mail back. I'm just not going to argue with you over this it's not worth it. I'm sorry you're not satisfied. That's all I can do for you.
HER: Really don't want you to do anything except quit writing me and leave me alone, I thought you just didn't know any better and I was just trying to be helpful, now that I know you do know better, I just want you to leave me alone.......please
Her Feed Back
So I checked out her feedback 99.3%. I find out she is selling jeweler items and she is charging 4.50 for shipping one ring. Does any of the above from her sound helpful to you?
Even though I say bad buyer on here I have never called a buyer a bad buyer to their face, equally there are bad sellers.
We Need A All Bad Buyers and Seller List
What is your experience with eBay? Someone needs to have a page that list all the bad buyers on eBay, so at least sellers know not to sell to them.
I'm Back To Let Everyone Know what Happened.
She left me a neutral rating which at least didn't take down my score then she sent me a message. She sent this message after she told me not to write her again.
just wanted to let you know that I weighed the jewelry with packaging and it weighed less than 8 oz, would have shipped 1st class for less than $3, I know you don't care but just wanted to let you know. please, no need to respond transaction completed FB left this matter should be finished. thanks ?
My Neutral Rating
seller shipped 8 oz pkg parcel post when could have shipped 1st class for less Buyer: NUTCAKE Sep-15-08 12:05
- Reply by @#$$% (Sep-15-08 15:37):shipping was listed on auction weight was over 13 oz. Cost me 4.73 to mail
This woman is so full of it!!!!
What I did for her.
I blocked her from buying from me again.
I filed a complaint with eBay over her harassment of the shipping. It won't do any good, but I feel better.
When I offer to give every cent back to her I really don't know what else I could have done. Also, you do not have to post postal options when selling an item on eBay and for anyone to think you have to be wrong. I was never late with sending this item out. I never blamed the post office. I was an honest seller and bent over backwards to help people.
Zapf Baby Doll
Another Bad Buyer
Just recently I put this pretty little baby doll up for sale on eBay. I had a $20.00 bid on it when the auction ended. I sent a payment due slip to the bidder. Never heard a word from her. I sent another reminder, nothing. So then I had Ebay send her a reminder, nothing, They didn't receive a respond. I waited 8 days then ask Ebay if I could relist the doll.
This is the type of thing happens on eBay than we can't leave bad feedback for the buyer. I blocked this person from buying from me again, but so far Ebay has done nothing to her for not paying for her item.
Well, now I have a seller complaint. I was bidding on a chandelier I just loved and had been winning. All at once I receive a message from eBay Dear eBay Community Member,
The bid you entered for the item (#%*#%*#%*#%*) has been cancelled. You can view the reason provided for the cancellation by selecting the (bid history) link from the individual item page. So I go to the linked page and all it says is the item received no bids not true it had 3 bids and I was the highest.
Contacting eBay is not always easy. Very rarely do they give a reason or answer to what actually happened. I filed a complaint, we'll have to see what happens.
I'm angry over it. If this can happen on an item then why bother to bid. I know she thought she wasn't going to get enough money for the item, but that's what reserves are for. She didn't have a reserve. She also had 100% rating.

Michael Jackson's Child's Jacket
Michael Jackson Jacket
My son had a Michael Jackson jacket when he was about 10 and I kept it through the years. Well, he’s almost 40 with no sons. I ask him what he wanted me to do with it. He told me to sell it on eBay. I put it up for auction. A lady bid won it for $45.00. I didn’t receive payment as promised. I emailed her, no answer. eBay sent her a paid message. She then contacted me. She asks me if I could give her a couple days, I said I would. I gave her about 4 more days to pay. She said she wanted it for her son for Halloween. Still she didn’t pay. Finally, I ask eBay if I could relist it. I relisted and the day I relisted, her money showed up in my Paypal account on the same day. I then sent her money back to her. She begged me to sell it to her I said I would if there were no bids on the jacket. There were bids. It was too late for her. The jacket sold then for about $127.00. I did the best I could on eBay to help her out, but sometimes it just doesn’t work.
She didn't give me bad feedback. I didn't give her any feedback.
Glass Bundt Pans
Mistakes I have made.
I have made many mistakes while buying from eBay. If it's my mistake I never say a word I just keep what I have bought. I made a mistake recently. I wanted a new glass bundt pan. I looked all over the Internet and couldn't find one except on eBay. My mistake I didn't ask any questions. My auction item arrived right when it should. In my photo on the right is what I got. It's a mini-me glass bundt pan. I wanted the large bundt pan. I will keep it and use it I'm sure. I will give the seller excellent feedback.
I no longer sell on eBay and I rarely buy, but I'm glad to hear your opinions of eBay.

Have you heard about the Dybbuk Box that was sold on Ebay? I guess it had evil in it according to it's owners. The last man to own it has hidden it away so no one can find it. You just never know what you can buy on eBay.
