    He BINed my auction for Baku Baku for Sega Saturn. Usually I offer free shipping with BINs, which is standard bare bones media mail. He pays with PayPal, I mail it, he gets it, he leaves positive feedback. A few days later he emails me claiming he never received it and wanting a tracking number, to which I replied that there wasn't one since it was free shipping and he should give it a few days since it's media mail. Unfortunately I hadn't noticed that he had already left me positive feedback at the time, or I would've known something was up.

    A few hours later he files a non-receipt complaint with PayPal, and since I don't have any tracking proof I eventually had to issue a full refund. I try contacting him numerous times through email with nary a response (a sure sign that he's scamming me, as if the positive feedback wasn't enough). PayPal, of course, completely ignores every email I fire off through the "appropriate channels".

    Ignore the positive feedback I gave him (jaredvgh)...this guy is SCUM. He's forced me to entirely change the way I do business on eBay, which is basically to go by the new mantra of "don't trust anybody". That only hurts buyers in the end.

    I still need to post the email exchange with this seller over the auction that triggers my warning to others. I actually need advice on what to do about feedback at this point.

    Anyway, just noticed the seller has opened a new account as "islandgamer2003" even after changing userids as mentioned above, despite telling me that they were leaving eBay shortly after my run-in with them. Oh, well. So it goes.

    Default Another Rude Buyer with demands for being a 0 bidder

    Well I decided to sell my copy of Panzer Dragoon Orta. I put a great BIN price (buy it now at a little lower price works for me on auctions). Anyways the guy pays on sunday using paypal.

    This is the e-mail I get from him with the original payment.-

    I am paying for shipping anyway because this absolutely must be shipped PRIORITY MAIL WITH DELIVERY CONFIRMATION.Please give me the tracking # when it is shipped.Please pack this well and make sure that it is in the condition you have described it to be in.Not 'fair' or 'good' but 'excellent' just as you state in the listing.Thank you.

    No problem there, I can seehim wanting this as it is a rare game, whatever, and shipping always comes with confirmation.

    Anyways, that was on Sunday, so Wed I get to work to check my e-mail (phone line is being worked on at home so no e-mail). I see my box has 457 messages. The most I have ever had after a week on vacation was 75. So I see I have almost 400+ e-mails from this yahoo saying I ripped him off blah blah blah, and then sends me a bill from paypal saying this-

    I got a warning about you right after I bought your game.Since then,I have talked to some other people and found out that some of them are still waiting after several weeks.I think you better refund every penney right now.The $105 + the extra $1 I sent you + 10% interest for the loan under false pretense. That is a total of $116.60 you owe me. I have no intention of tolerating the extreme delay and/or rip off from someone like you. Make the refund or give me a tracking # on Thursday or I call the Springfield MO authorities and inform them of the laws you are breaking..I have been in touch with a dozen users and some of them are pretty pissed off at you. I personally will track your ass down if you try to rip me off. I have your address on Inghram Mill Rd and I intend to confirm it and use it if you don't make the refund or give me a tracking # within 24 hours..If you give me a tracking #,the parcel better be delivered by Monday or you will be in deep shit..If you don't answer me within 24 hours,you will be in deep shit.The distance won't save you..Nobody rips me off and gets away with it.

    Okay I am not going to be rude to this guy, because its obvious he is either some guy who is either under age or has extreme issues. I have two negative feedbacks on selling. One is from someone who says that the tiem was never shipped when they recieved tracking and you can tell by going to the usps page and finding such, they also said my number is a fake which isn't true, it's my cell phone number ( I am not giving my home number out) If they didn't get an answer they should have at least recieved my voice mail. The other feedback was because I took too long to ship a DVD. That one I completely take the blame for. It was something that slipped through the cracks. They got a tracking number and know it was shipped. 18 days isn't forever especially considering the way things I have won have been shipped to me. Everyone who has one items from me has been e-mailed item delivery confirmation numbers the day they are shipped. So I really don't know where this guy is getting his info. I refunded his money as I don't want to deal with this tool in any way shape or form its complete and utter bull***t. But we all have to deal with it

    SkulNChain@aol.com is his e-mail and umabody is his ebay sn. He is an aol kiddie so I may have to keep a watch on this guy, but he is added to my list.

    Sorry for the long diatribe, but I have never had such problems with a buyer.

    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]

    Oh lord...if only I had seen this earlier, I could have avoided the mess I'm in now.
    I bought a Pioneer Laseractive CLD-A100 off this guy. He charged me $40 shipping although the sticker on the package i got says it was around $15. But at this point, I didn't even care. In the description for the auction it says it is in GREAT working condition, but 15 minutes after getting it and testing it out, it stops working. I'm guessing there was a short in the power supply, but I don't know much about this. He hasn't helped me a bit in trying to get it resolved, so I'm pretty much on my own trying to get it repaired. My friend Eric Dude posted my problem here if anyone wants to look at it and can help me out.

    Well my story gets better, I got this e-mail in my box today-


    To member: hickorywoodjohnson
    From member: apexpredator

    --------------------


    Hello, you don't know me, but i noticed the buyer umabody bought that
    Panzer game from you
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3051424290
    I don't know if this person has tried to scam you via PayPal, but she
    has done this to a number of people, using several IDs. She is also
    using stolen identities to sign these accounts up and is likely using
    stolen credit cards to buy things as well. This person is bad news. What i
    need is a real address she has provided. It looks like she might have
    had reason to give you a real adress, can you go back thru your records
    and provide me with the Ohio residence you provided you with? This would
    help a great number of people who she has ripped off, as many of us are
    working together now to stop her.

    Thanks and best regards,

    Alex


    Now I am working with e-bay to remove my neg from them, and I see they have private feedback and are no longer registered.

    Wow almost a year since I replied to this topic. I have one person to add to the list which was a seller...Username ECW94. Bought a game from him and was constantly delayed about when he would ship. Finally after 3 months and no game I left feedback and found he has multiple bad trader reports now on UGTZ as well.

    This is such a great topic!

    I'm lucky in that I've only had a couple of bad experiences on eBay. One of those was from a user no longer registered, but I do want to warn you about a guy named Add61. A number of years ago (I was a lot younger and it was one of my early eBay experiences) I bought a couple of VHS tapes from him containing all of the old Legend of Zelda cartoons from the Super Mario Bros. Supershow. Except, he never sent them. He never answered any of my e-mails or AIM messages, either. I later found out he'd done this to a number of others as well.

    Every now and then, I'll check to see if he's selling anything. He usually isn't, but one time I spotted him trying to sell those Zelda tapes again. I actually e-mailed the high bidder and warned him about the seller. He cancelled his bid after that.

    The only other addition to the list I would like to add is PayPal itself. I know a lot of people use it and like it, but I've had friends get seriously ripped off by people on PayPal, and since PayPal isn't bound to any of the federal laws that actual banks and such are bound to, they pretty much don't care. One friend of mine got ripped off of over $800 because the other guy in the transaction used a stolen credit card. After that he found out all kinds of horrible things about PayPal at a site called www.paypalwarning.com

    I cancelled my account after that, and suggest anyone else do the same. It's easy enough to switch to something like BidPay or C2it, which are actually bound by federal laws.

    Default gotten ripped of too many time, so here's my list...

    For what it's worth, here's who ripped me off:

    smoogjc <smoogjc@aol.com>
    odyssey2 games
    (con artist - bait and switch, not as promised - never buy from this fraud)

    josecastillo95127@yahoo.com
    <josecastillo95127@yahoo.com>
    Odyssey2 games
    (con artist - items not described correctly, arrived in very, very poor shape and overcharged shipping - not willing to give complete refund)

    canadianblake <umpete24@cc.UManitoba.CA>
    Computer and cartridges
    (ignorant seller - describes MIB as good looking, but ok if not working! Payed good money for non-functioning computer and game!)

    I've got a few other so-so deals, but these are the three jerks at the top of my list. Avoid them at completely!!!

    FWIW, I've purchased one item (an Odyssey2 Voice manual) from smoogjc and had no problems. But I'd suggest avoiding him anyway as he usually overcharges and almost never includes photos in his auction descriptions.

    Here's another one to avoid...

    Stringcheeserocks

    He signed up on 11/13, and the first thing he does is use a "BuyItNow" on my Sega Master System. I put in my auction that I need a "verified" Paypal address and not only did he pay with a non-verified address, the names didn't even match. I might overlook this if he had a ton of feedback, but he has "0", so I send him this email:


    Thanks for winning my auction!

    However, I do have one issue - As stated in the auction details, I require a confirmed address if paying via Paypal to send this to:

    Payment is expected within 10 days of auction close. Payment is accepted in the form of cash (consealed at your own risk), personal checks, money orders or Paypal. Personal checks need to wait 10 days to clear. Paypal must be a *VERIFIED ADDRESS*, will not ship to any other address. Shipping is all that is charged, no handling fees because that's just bad business. All items are sold "as is" unless otherwise noted. All items shipped via US Priority Mail unless otherwise noted or unless agreed upon by the seller before the auction ends. Items shipped within 5 days of auction end. Shipping will cost more to send outside of the US. Thanks again for looking.

    If I ship to your current address without a confirmed address, I have the chance of being burned and losing both the merchandise I'm sending and the money I'm making off the auction.

    Here's what can be done:

    1. You get your address confirmed via Paypal. Once this is done, I'll send this out ASAP.

    2. I'll send you your Paypal payment back, and you can pay via Money Order.

    Please let me know how you want to move forward with this.

    Thanks!

    Brian


    He responds back with:



    Well, they wont verify my address so I guess we will have to do this by money order. Let me know when you have sent paypal money back. Where should I send the money order? How much? Thanks,
    Matt



    It's odd that he didn't know how much he sent me the day before... so I give him his total and get this this morning:



    I hate to do this but I've had a family emergency and I cant afford this at the time. I hope to buy it later if possible. Once again I apoligize and I hope I havent caused you too much trouble. Thanks,

    Matt



    Of course I proceed to leave him negative feedback, will be filing a NPB in a few days, etc, and sent him a "you suck" email. Just thought I'd let everyone know to watch out!

    The following is a list of non-paying bidders you should all look out for:

    cokigroc
    humpsandabumps
    drand63
    ariedalem

    Most of them were too dumb to read the shipping terms and refused to comply.

    The Drand63 was dumb enough to not even read the auction at all until it ended. He finally read it and changed his mind (it was for a defunct PS2).

    On a side note, would it be possible to break this forum up into a bad seller and a seperate bad buyer topic?

    Non-paying bidders are rough but what about non-selling sellers???

    I won this auction recently....

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3057452195

    Now I'll admit I've had my differences with the seller in the past but what gets me is that he relisted the auction just 8 minutes after I won it...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3058845713

    Then he went and banned me from bidding on his auctions, which is what he should have done originally if he didn't want me to be a potential bidder.

    I also got a paypal request for payment from him a couple of days after the auction, which I paid only to promptly have it refunded with a note telling me i'm banned.

    Oh well, just a heads up to everyone to beware...

    I have a few to nominate

    Coupon happy (not couponhappy as in one word, coupon happy as in 2 words) - Sells NES games, but I bought one and it came to about 1.60 total, and he responded to no eMails or anything....after leaving negative and lots of other people leaving negatives....I finally get the game about 2 months later. with no apology or anything. what a moron.

    Withtheforce - Claimed on the pictureless auction that Tempo for 32X included game, case & manual...I get it in a crappy chop & crop vhs rental case...and once I left negative feedback he gets pissed because I ruined his perfect feedback for a 1.00 item.

    intermediasales - won a Star Wars 32x game from him, no shipping listed, after I won would ONLY ship for 6.00 priority. And he left me negative feedback before we were even done discussing the shipping on it!

    inetdvd - pissed me off the worst...I bought Clock Tower 3 from him, it had a picture of the game complete on the auction and I get it missing the instruction manual. I question him and he points me WAAAAAY down at the very bottom of the auction in tiny print saying the game may or may not include box or manual. I get pissed, ask for 5.00 back so I can buy one from Capcom, no deal...hed give me my 30.00 back but not 5.00. jerk

    Lori2640 - Won an auction from me a while back, then after numerous emails with no response I finally call, reach her, and she claims her husband did the bidding and to e-mail her details tommorow and she will get it taken care of. I type the e-mail in the morning to find out that she cancelled her e-mail account.

    avspecial - a LONG time ago...about 4 years...I won a dvd box set from him pretty damn cheap, about 1/2 of the going price at the time. I request a address so I can pay him for it. He emails me back saying sorry, I didnt mean to list it so cheap, I cant sell it for that price. I leave him negative and he gets pissed off at me saying "your just trying to take advantage of the situation"...this one still haunts me to this day.

    Thats all for now. I love this topic

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3251848894

    bought this Buzzle Bobble from her. soulda known by the "Private Auction" that this was fake. some hacked mvs cart, with a horrible inkjet made sticker on the cart, some fake serial number on the side. and the Marquee was the worst looking thing ever.(notice the great lighting in the auction)

    Cart's game works, but if you just let it sit and run it reboots itself every time it hits the title screen.

    Left neg, Ebay has done nothing for me or to her. continues to sell a bunch of the same she still has.
    My life and perception has changed, but my principals are the same.

    i am so sorry i thought you took credit card so please cancel this i deeply am sor

    My reply:
    Alright, but I will be filing a official non-paying bidder complaint with ebay. I don't wish to be out listing and selling fees because you didn't read the terms before you bid.
    Her very very stupid reply:
    thats fine ihave not done anything plus i am a seller also and there is no seller fees
    She's done nothing wrong? There are no seller fees? How dumb can you be? Naturally, I called her on it:

    Rest assured there are fees, otherwise eBay wouldn't be making any money (although I doubt you're a seller because you only have 1 feedback, and it is as a buyer...)

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/ques...ller-fees.html

    In addition, when you purchase an item, you enter a legally binding contract. Failure to pay is a violation of that contract.

    Please review:

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/quest...nted-item.html
    http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/non-payment.html

    You will not receive any other communications from this matter on my part.

    In 7 days (the soonest time possible) I will file the NPB complaint, and you will get a notice from eBay stating that you need to pay. You can ignore this if you still do not want the item.
    10 days after that, I will file the credit request, and you may receive another notice.
    She hasn't replied, but immediately changed her username, as if she could hide.

    i haven't left negative feedback yet either (although I REALLY REALLY want to!).She has a rating of 1, and as soon as I get my final value fee refunded, it will be back to 0.

    I was bored and typed this up...thought other people might want to use it too.

    http://www.hakanai.net/ebay/blockedbidders.txt

    Its a text file of every bad bidder listed in this forum (though, thanks to Sylentwulf, I know have carpal tunnel synrome)

    Feel free to copy and paste it into your blocked bidder list on eBay and protect yourself!

    Thanks for the list! I added it in.

    Remember my lame NPB who claimed he had a family emergency? I received this email today (from yet another email account than his original one):


    remeber me? I tried to buy a master system but had an emergency and couldnt. It has now been a month and i have not received my money back. you have had plenty of time to do so. i am very displeased with this. you have one week to return the money before appropriate action is taken. please contact me at mattomus@msn .com as soon as possible.

    Matt


    Oddly enough, he asks me to reply to a different email address to the one he sent it from. Funny thing is that I refused payment via Paypal, so I never got any cash at all. I sent him this email back:

    I denied payment. I never received a dime. If you haven't received any money back, it's because you haven't claimed it at Paypal. You might want to get a hold of Paypal if you're having issues. Below is a copy of the transaction (which is a cut and paste from their website). When you contact them, you might want to give them the reference # below (2HY04270A9765683X).


    This should be a fun week.

    This is my practice. I always leave feedback when the buyer does. It's the only protection you get as a seller. It's worked basically, as I only have one neutral so far, no negs. I'm waiting for another idiot to post something other than a positive.

    Really, problems on eBay as anywhere you buy from WILL occur. Dealing with any problems is more important than payment. If the buyer OR seller won't deal with it in a reasonable fashion, someone deserves less than positive feedback. However, most of the time people can be pleased.

    And for all of you complaining about shipping costs, you need to sort that out beforehand. If they don't claim 'shipping at or near cost' or give a shipping cost, you need to find it out before you bid. If you don't get a response for a shipping quote, you are bidding at your own risk. I know it's SUPER lame to gauge shipping as they try to do, but there are costs associated with shipping for all businesses, and it's just not that easy for everyone to write them off.

    As well, eBay now has the shipping calculator offered. If the seller isn't using it or offering a flat rate shipping in the US, be suspicious. It's just too easy to enter shipping costs beforehand (speeds payment up afterward) not to use that feature.

    Of course, I could write oodles about this, but I charge like $0.00 to $0.80 for 'handling' because I do have to buy shipping materials much of the time. And you shouldn't have to complain about a reasonable cost like that when the item is packaged well. Unfortunately that just isn't the case all the time.
