FU: It gets Worse... Why do I even bother with Ebay anymore?

Original Thread here: [forums.macresource.com]


Package arrived from the Ukraine. I called ebay before hand and alerted them that this was a scam and that the original phone was sent to a US address and that the return is surely a fake. They said they would put a note in. However, Ebay saw delivery in the tracking and issued them a refund. Nothing in the package but a empty phone case. So now the buyer has the phone and their money back. I alerted ebay and they did nothing. Told me to file a police report. The buyers account is still active FWIW and I can't leave feedback apparently because of the transaction dispute to warn anyone. Class action lawsuit against ebay?

Don't bother. Vote with your wallet. Do not buy/sell anything on eBay. eventually they will go out of business

If you think about how important they were in last 1990s and early 2000s. When you could actually sell and buy on eBay. everything went downhill from there.

Ebay is primarily a place for buying cheap crap.

Someone should start an auction site where people can sell things to each other.

If you ultimately paid with a CREDIT CARD, you should have some protection. If you used a DEBIT CARD, you may be SOL. Discover Card is a STRONG advocate for their cardholders. Make sure that PayPal (or whatever service you used) CANNOT access ANY of you accounts first. old fogey smiley angry villagers smiley

I buy more expensive stuff on eBay with a CC just because I can go through them and ignore PayPal and eBay. They both HATE that, but they can't prevent it. Even better if you can use a 1 time CC number.
