    oh, i have a short list of scumbag sellers as well. i'll have to post it soon, but i'm waiting to see if one of these creeps comes through as promised with my refund...

    However, a few months ago me and several other bidders discovered that a sealed NES game seller was selling resealed copies. We eventually made him confess to it, and mailed all of the evidence we had collected to eBay. Luckily the two games I bought off of him were legit (he got greedy afterward), but a bunch of people got screwed. I can't remember his ID (it was kak something), but it doesn't really matter anyway since that ID is no longer a registered user.
    I know exactly who your talking about. His ebay name was kakrotto, (Alex), last summer was trying to pull that off, but got caught. Little weasel! I purchased some games from him also, but they all seem to be intact, but how can you tell a factory sealed game from a super mint intact rewrap its very difficult. Remember e-bay can seem like a roll of the dice and I'm sure there are others like him out there now. So BE CAREFUL!

    Unfortunately there are a lot of eBay sellers that don't left feedback after receiving payment. They wait you to give feedback first...

    Yeah, I've had the same problem...I've left feedback for over 220 transactions while my feedback is currently at 145...that's a little less than half of the people I've dealt with who haven't left feedback. In the past, I've waited patiently for a response, sometimes emailing them to see if they were satisfied with their purchases. I often get glowing email responses, but they don't bother leaving feedback. I mean, geeze! How hard is it to click a button or two and write something simple as "thanks" or "great job?" I don't even hold my breath anymore. Maybe my auctions suck. :-(

    I must post VGE007 for the black list. I won an auction for $10. I did not want to get a money order so I just sent him a 10 dollar bill. Well, weeks go by and I send him an e-mail asking where is my game. he responds "you sent cash. I only take money orders sorry you not follow rules" So a) I know he got the $10 bill because I never told him I sent cash and b) because I did not follow his rules he can steal my money??. Plus look at his neg. feedback people post "DVD were crap and no sound" his response? " hey you pay $1.50 for DVD you want nice ones? win one of my expensive auctions"

    What a turd!

    I found an old email I saved on my Macintosh from an old eBay deal that went sour. beware of this person:

    Malcolm Stiefel (sometimes known as Colm)
    1217 A Duane Rd
    Chattanooga TN 37405

    He took my $21.50 + $5 for an AV Famicom console and never got back. His email address (stiefel2000@webtv.net) bounced a couple weeks later and was no longer registered on eBay (originally as geoguy23, and oneworldfashions was the last known eBay ID) > >

    According to the email, the deal was closed on Aug 1999 and he dissapeared on 14th of September. Since his eBay account was closed, I couldn't get the phone number.

    I searched Google groups, and his name or email address never turned up.
    Another day, another dollar... wake me when it's payday.

    Default The infamous "nfarj"

    If you haven't seen my posts on AA about this guy, be on the lookout for him. He had a boxed Sentinel for 7800 with a Buy It Now of $99 and an opening price of $1. I bid the low ball amount (it's really not that rare) but with two hours to go he cancelled the auction; then he relisted the same game with a HIGHER Buy It Now. He charges $8 shipping even for single boxed games on all of his auctions, and he snipes low Buy It Nows on games and marks them up for double the amount to resell (he's done it on 7800 Ikari Warriors several times). His feedback profile is hidden for a reason - he's a real scumbucket. I recommend you avoid this guy like bubonic plague.

    Yeah, I checked out their feedback and I would agree. I mean an 8000+ feedback rating is great, but over 230 unique negs and almost another 200 neutrals tells me this seller has issues. A 1 in 20 chance of getting the shaft is not good (negs + neutrals)

    Sigh, here's a new one...carnell2775, name Jaime Carnell.

    Here's the auction I won...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...014213593&rd=1

    Looks pretty good for the price, eh? Especially since it has an older Nintendo Fun Club newsletter included. I e-mail the seller before bidding, asking about the shipping price. Got it, was reasonable. Won auction, waited a day, then paid with Paypal. Two days later (today) I get this e-mail...

    "This is the first chance I had to review the auction. I am sorry but the final fantasy poster alone is worth $10 to me."

    So I write him back and tell him that according to ebay's rules, he has to sell the auction at the final price whatever it is or risk discinplinary action from ebay. I also told him that if he refunded my money I'd let the whole thing drop, but I've got a bad feeling dipshit here is gonna screw me over.

    Now I'm waiting for a reply, we'll see what happens.

    Avoid this guy....I won something from him one time and sent payment. He said that it was all boxed and ready to ship. Two weeks went by and I didn't get what I won from him.

    He claims that the package was returned..though I had listed my address very clearly on the payment I sent.

    I finally got the item..but left him neutral feedback.

    Avoid him if you can. If you can't, just be wary of him.

    seller: danny_and_julie

    I won a complete D (PSX) for $10 (about half the usual price) plus $5 shipping. A good deal. The seller receives the payment and posts positive feedback for me. A couple of weeks later, I get an email from the seller explaining that her computer's power supply died and she was using her husband's computer but then her husband had a death in the family and they went out of town and could I please send my shipping address again because things WILL be shipped in the next two days.

    That was March 9. So I replied with my address by direct email. A couple of weeks later I sent an inquiry asking whether the item had been shipped, as I had not received it. Then another a couple of days later, as I didn't hear back. And then another. I used both direct email and ebay's "ask seller a question" feature.

    A week later is today, so I send a direct email asking about the item, and find that my host has been blocked. So the seller got tired of hearing from me and blocked my direct email rather than send a reply. I fired off the same message through ebay's message system, saying I would leave a neg if I didn't hear back something by Monday, and also saying that I wouldn't leave a neg if I got a refund for the bid price and shipping.

    Assuming that I never hear back from the seller, this would be my first genuinely bad ebay experience.

    I must post:

    PiazzaPower

    A long time ago, I did an auctin for a lot of SNES games. The lady paid, I sent her games. The post office should be at fault, because it took them awhile to get the games to her, and she blames me for them getting to her so late.

    A year later, I put up another auction. She won this auction too (A lot fo 60 SNES games). She said "I didn't this know was you. If you send the games faster than before, I'll deal with you." So I decided to send her the games first, and I never received my $320 from her. She never replied to my e-mails or nothing. I didn't even get a chance to leave her a negative or to get my games back!

    For some reason I think this may be the same guy as treasurehunter2002usa.

    I bought my CD-i player off this guy that was stated to be in mint condition. Wrong-o.

    The unit had some pretty definite scuffs and scratches on top of the unit, and when I flipped it over, there were rust spots!!

    Not only that, the eject operation didn't work. He refused to work with me until I kept harassing him and he gave me $15 refund if I promised to keep the Mail Fraud off his butt. The catch is that I already submitted the paperwork to incriminate him before I asked for the refund

    I just got the unit back from service and it cost me $55 to repair back to the manufacturers specs. It would have cost an ordinary schmo $100 without the discount.

    He gave me a negative retaliatory feedback too stating that I tried to return a different unit than the one he sent me.....scumbag...[/b]

    I won this auction from him awhile back. I paid him using paypal instantly, and after more than two weeks of waiting for the package it never arrived. I emailed him kindly asking if he sent the package. He returned my email with quite a rude response stating that he just doesn't have the time to ship items right away. This was two weeks later! I filed a complaint with Squaretrade and Paypal, and after a month of no sign of the package Paypal luckily forced a chargeback on the amount I had paid. After that, this guy sent me a nasty email stating if he did not receive the item back in 30 days he would leave me a negative as well! Well, I never received the package in the first place! He ended up leaving me a negative anyway, and now I'm trying to file for a feedback removal through ebay...hopefully that works. My advice to any ebay buyer is to steer very clear from this con-artist.

    My fault for doing a deal outside eBay, but I had bid on the auction. The seller sent me an e-mail stating the high bidder could not pay and offered it to me. I said sure and PP'd the money. Well... nerver got the items and never heard anything again. I e-mailed several times to ask, "did you send the items?" and nothing, not a word. I filed a complaint with PP and it's in the works. They real problem is it was paid out of my PP balance and not my CC! Oh well, at least it wasn't a large sum of money!

    If that ever happens again, tell the seller to send you a "Second-Chance Offer" through eBay on the auction -- at least then eBay has a record that the transaction took place. He might have still left you twisting in the wind, but your case for protection (and his rear getting booted) would be a lot stronger.

    You're right. I never have had a bad deal when doing this, but that's no excuse. I been on eBay for years now and usually they are on the up and up, plus I tend to buy from the same sellers over and over again. In the last year or two I have branched out to other sellers, and have taken the risk of new sellers too. All with success I might add.
