    Default Another Ebay crazypants bidder

    Sold a razor on the bay, for a whopping 4.99

    Ended Sunday evening.

    Goes unpaid for 3 days
    I get a "request invoice"
    Invoice sent, and payment received the next morning. (Thusday)
    I list with a 2 day handling time, so that I dont get caught short if things come up at the farm.
    Ships out Saturday morning.

    Letters start coming complaining that the razor was not shipped right after the auction ended. Claiming it was paid for the day it ended. Claiming that I am a liar, and that I am accusing THEM of being a liar for saying I was not paid right away. "I Paid for Priority shipping, but it did not get mailed until Saturday"

    mean spirited and aggressive/accusatory in every communication.
    THEN they leave me positive feedback with a "good communications" note, before sending me one last letter telling me I'm a lousy seller and im one of the reasons Ebay has such a bad reputation, and I should not ever write them again.

    Anybody wanting to put this guy on their block list, just PM me for their ID

    Seriously, whats wrong with people?

    Wow, that sounds like a great roller-coaster ride... there are many of those.
    I had a similar experience with a seller, they took their time to ship it and guess what?
    Shipped a wrong item...
    People will always be "people"

    Ebay has a record of all communications between seller and buyer. You have 2 choices. Contact eBay and complain. He harassed you or find the eBay link to block the buyer in the future. I have had to use both paths. The easiest is block the buyer.

    Oh hes blocked alright! But since he left me positive feedback, I am going to let it go and not file an Ebay complaint. He might actually have a mental problem, I dont know. I TRY to be nice. (not that it always works)

    Nothing surprises me on eBay.

    At the moment I am serving a seven day ban from EBay for asking a seller to sell through PayPal at a discount, bypassing eBay charges .

    This was my second offence . The first was a few months ago . I asked a guy in the states to sell me a W&B through PayPal and mark the value at $10 on the package so to avoid customs charges.
    The guy reported me to eBay :/

    I have never been banned from anywhere in my life until now (Rebel)

    Well, at least you actually DID the things you got in trouble for!

    I've gotten a week suspension for some guy from overseas trying to set up a deal outside of eBay. 3 times I tried to message him that it was against eBay policy. Each time I got a notice before it sent stating that the message was being reviewed for policy breach and on the third time I got a notice that my account was suspended.

    So, just a PSA for anyone selling. If someone tries to circumvent eBay protocols, maybe try and let them know one time that it's against policy but don't keep hitting send because there's a chance they'll boot you for a week or longer.
    One man's opinion...

    I had no idea I was banned from selling or bidding because I never open ebay emails. To me they are a form of harassment .

    Only because I went to drop a hefty bid on a W&B chopper, is how I found out.

    So its there loss .
