Potties Please ~ really, this time!

okay guys i need help! I saw an add on craigslist for 4 tickets to the cowboys @ eagles for only $500 and it was section 138, row 12.  which these tickets are faily expensive so right away red flag.  the ad gave a phone number to text.  i texted them and they told me to email them for more info.  so i did and then i received this; 

 

Hi,
I have for sale 4 Philadelphia Eagles vs Carolina Panthers Tickets for Mon, Nov. 10th. My seats are located side by side in Section 138 Row 12. The price for all 4 tickets is $500 and you will also receive a parking pass. I am a season ticket holder so if you are interested in buying another game or all home games I can sell you my 4 season for $1500.
Currently I am on a business trip with my World Health Organization Team around the country to raise funds for people with diabetes and I won't be able to any of the home games this year. I bought the tickets before I knew I had to cancel my football plans. Due to time sensitivity and to make sure that we do this transaction safe and secured, I would like to do this online through Buyer Protection who are affiliated with eBay and they handle the whole process. As a season ticket holder I also have digital tickets (etickets) which I will send to you from my season account to your email address. This takes less than 30 minutes. I want you to know that I will not receive a single dollar until you have the tickets in your possession and you are 100% satisfied with them.
If you are interested in buying the tickets, please email me back with your full name and shipping address or email address where you would like the tickets to be sent.
Thank you and I hope you have a great day!
 
so i responded saying that i only wanted the tickets for the game on 12/14.  withing seconds of sending that email i received another from this lady asking if i had received the einvoice.  i checked and i had am invoice from ebay....
 
You are receiving this e-mail because the seller Anita Wastin, has selected eBay Buyer Protection to handle a secure online transaction with you.

Payment must be submitted via MoneyPak, an easy and convenient way to send money to where you need it. The MoneyPak works as a cash top-up card. Once you purchase it at a participating retailer with cash, you can use it to make payments to eBay. eBay Buyer Protection will secure the payment until the buyer receives, inspects and accepts the tickets. Or, if it will be the case, eBay Buyer Protection will refund the payment to the buyer. 
 Take your cash to a major retailer. Walmart       CVS         Kroger           Aid          Walgreens
 Buy one $500 GreenDot MoneyPak card. (Like the one in the picture above. MoneyPak card should have 14 digits)
 Click the Pay Now button below to make the payment or fax the GreenDot MoneyPak codes at +1 206-202-0803

If you have any questions please fell free to contact us at BuyerProtection-tickets@representative.com

We're available from 5:00 AM-10:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST), every day.

           

this seemed sketchy again! lol because when I clicked the pay now button it takes me to a page that asked for my name, email, and the moneypak card number....i have this gut feeling that its just one elaborate scam from a pro! i copied and pasted the invoice from ebay so it probably doesnt look the same, but it def looks legit in my email haha....so please help me out friends! =) thanks a lot! 

Buying & Selling Basics question

Oct 21, 2014 9:30:06 PM PT

feels like a scam!

 

The seller`s original description is  I quoted Used very little like new.

 

But what seller sent me was a nasty watch and full of dirt and scrach in the photos  .It likes The Gold Watch in movie pulp ficiton.

 

I opened a return request  and seller didn't responed  so ebay step in and aproved the return.

 

But now the seller didn't  admitted this at all ,blame all responsibilities on me and eBay , won't  refund me even I return the item and return shipping .

 

 And seller  just offer to sent  me the original  accessaries which he claims found after sent me the item.

 

How can sent these informations to ebay and other buyers ?

I have tried revising 3 times and still I can't  make it list as I typed it. Could this be a problem with my Java? I'm frustrated and...can't figure out what's going on. PLease help.

I picked up this glass tip top display table today from my Savers Thrift for $20.00. I was so excited to see it, all's I could picture was my Victorian jools and trinkets in it.

All the sides are glass as well.

Needs to have the brass parts wiped a bit, there's polish residue all built up.

Am I crazy for being so happy to find it that I couldn't wait to show you guys ?

My family just shrugs their shoulders...lol.

Was wondering if anyone might be able to help me identify when this ANRI woodcarving was made. Has a paperlabel on the base that reads Woodcarving by ANRI Italy. Also has another paperlabel that reads Jongleur, which I have found out was the term for a traveling entertainer in medieval France & England. This measures 12 3/4" tall. 6 1/4" wide and is 3" deep.

ANRI Woodcarving

When I was very young I remember my grandmother having this statue on the piano.   Being very young, I was scared of it.  I always thought it was creepy looking.

 

What I would like to know if this statue is of Pus N Boots?  Also, it is made of a heavy metal. I'm thinking maybe bronze.  It's weighs 13 lbs and is 15 inches tall..  The bottom is filled with some kind of resin.  It has a velvet cover on the bottom I just took it off to look at it further.  How does one test for bronze?  Or is this made to look like bronze?

 

There is a similar one on the net but it is much larger and used as a garden statuary.  He's wearing a hat unlike mine.   There are no identifing marks on my statue and no country of origin.   I do know it's old. 

 

Any thoughts are appreicated.  Thank you so much.006.JPG011.JPG007.JPG009.JPG002.JPG

Today was the best thrift store treasure hunting day ever! I found this Emanuel Shary painting for $29! But, I wasn't sure being behind glass, and I spent 20 minutes with my little magnifying glass looking at it from all angels until it was finally the white hairs of his beard that convinced me it just may be a real pastel or charcoal or colored pencil.

Like an idiot when I got home I immediately started trying to get it out of the frame to see if it was real or not - without taking pictures of it in the frame + breaking the glass protecting it in the process because I was so nervous (but thank God not hurting the painting)

I knew immediately it was real from the feel of it, but I had no idea if I had a pastel, a colored pencil drawing or charcoal. I am still not sure, but believe it is a pastel because looking Schary up I saw he has worked with pastels.

 

How do you tell a pastel painting from a colored penciled one? Or a charcoal one (if they have colors other than black)

It has a almost soft gritty/powdery feel (best way I can think to describe it), and I'm guessing pencil would be more smooth?

 

The back of the paper has some unusual letters & numbers; maybe they tell what paper it is and the time period?

 

Any idea how to find out the painting's name? - Most of his original paintings that I've found have a title.

 

I GREATLY appreciate any help with this - I want to list it correctly so hopefully this beauty will help me pay off the new pvc plumbing I had to completely replace when my 50+ yr old cast iron system finally collapsed!

Dear Members,

 

I am new to eBay and would like to ask a question regarding a shipping calculator available in my listings in an ebay store. The seller is located in Australia.

 

I would like to be able to have this on my listings:

 

Shipping calculator

 

Will this calculator work in Australia so that buyers can enter their ZIP code and get varying rates for shipping based on their location?

 

Or do I have to use a 3rd party plugin to implement such functionality in my auctions? If so do you have any recommendations regarding such plugins?

 

I will appreciate your help!

I'm leaning towards some type of agate, but figured I'd ask first just in case someone recognizes it.  VERY dark stone, but in the sunlight there's clear lines or "layers" so to speak.  It's a chantille style pin brooch combo, sterling and copper,  probably 70's I'm guessing.  Only marked "925".  Thank you for any suggestions!

OMG, can eBay not leave ANYTHING alone!?  Every time I come here, it's different.  Had to Google for a link to this category, couldn't figure out how to find it otherwise.  ::sigh::

 

Anyway.  I recently purchased a teapot which is out of my usual collecting focus.  My research indicates it is "American Belleek", with a mark indicating it was made by Lenox between 1906-1924.  I noted that many other teapots with this mark have similar handles and finials, apparently a common design trait.  However, I cannot find another one like this.  I would like to know if this shape has a name, or belongs to a specific line.  The quality is exceptional compared to the Thirties and Forties colorware I usually collect, the only imperfections I can find are a few tiny glaze pops and a glazed over crumb.  I was wondering, as most of the other pots I saw are very ornately decorated, if this would have precluded it from being decorated, and designated it as a second, or was it meant to be starkly elegant and simple?  I do intend to list this pot to finance my own obsession, so would also be interested in an opinion of what a collector might pay for it (yup, I know book values are worthless!)  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Hope I haven't messed up with these pics, last I knew, eBay auto-resized them if they were too big?  Would also appreciate any gentle advice on what for me, is yet another "new format" for these boards.

Hello,

I've searched the "regular" spots for information on this silver mark, and it is turning up nothing.  At least not under American Silver Marks

This is a cool pendant, the back is marked "S STER"

Try typing that into google for a last resort search!  Uggh!

Does anyone know what "S" sterling represents.  It is stylized and shows on the left side of the "Ster" mark.  Hard to see.  The pendant weighs 12 grams, it is about 1-1/4".  There are no other markings.

Pottery: Art Vase Tall, Floral

Tonight I had a potential buyer that contact me about an outrageous shipping estimate. I started investigating while playing message tag.

 

I logged in under another account, entered the buyers address (as my own), and proceeded to add 6 RV table legs to the cart. Once in the cart, I was presented with this (look at the FedEx Ground price):

 

 

Luckily the buyer contacted me to ask if that was correct. Most would not bother and just move on. Now watch what happens to those prices as I proceed to checkout. The amount shown $64.02 is still there screaming ripoff! You have to scroll down to the bottom. I have a big screen and it does not even show the real shipping price without searching for it at the bottom of the page (below is just the bottom HALF of the cropped checkout page).

 

So the $64.02, that ebay was scaring the buyer with page after page, turned out to be $12.33.

WHY NOT SHOW $12.33 TO START WITH???

Hi everyone,

 

Can someone out there help me identify what these Halloween illustrations are? They each measure about 6-1/2" x 5". I thought they were iron-on transfers when I initially purchased them, but now I'm not so sure. They are printed on thin, clear plastic paper. They seem to possibly be for glass, but are not sticky and would be the wrong way on a window. I am just hoping that someone may have seen the illustrations before. Thanks in advance for any help!

I posted this question to my home group, Part Time eBay Sellers ~ unfortunately the group gets very little traffic, so thought I would ask for suggestions here.  It is obviously just another eBay glitch ~ but is it serious?

 

I noticed that my "cart" showed two items ~ they aren't mine!  I know that I can just delete them, but my concern is how in the world did they get there in the first place and should I change passwords (this is a posting ID) for both eBay and PayPal?  I really don't have the time or inclination to call CS, but will, if that is what it takes!

The inside of the back looks like they were hand carved.

They seem pretty big for a tourist to carry on the plane.

I appreciate any help with these.

HI, I have this set that is very busy! Plastic beads, rhinestones (one missing) and baroque faux pearls. The beads look like there are held in place by a rod that  extends from the middle of the  filigree backs . The rhinestones settings are part of the filigree backs. It has a box clasp. Any ideas on who the maker might be? As always thank you.

Hello,

I've searched the "regular" spots for information on this silver mark, and it is turning up nothing.  At least not under American Silver Marks

This is a cool pendant, the back is marked "S STER"

Try typing that into google for a last resort search!  Uggh!

Does anyone know what "S" sterling represents.  It is stylized and shows on the left side of the "Ster" mark.  Hard to see.  The pendant weighs 12 grams, it is about 1-1/4".  There are no other markings.

Hi all,

 

I have this cup and saucer with the Capodimonte marks.  The marks are different so I do not know if this set is a marriage set or it made

slightly different on purpose.

 

The mark on the cup has what I think are initials of EPP, do those initials mean anything special?  Also, the saucer mark has three dots, does that mean

anything?

 

Any idea on age for this set?  Saucer is 5" diameter and cup is 2-3/8" tall so this is small.

 

Thank you for looking and any help.

OK so I read up on damaged returns and most people say chalk it up to a loss...
I sell sports memorabilia and cards so unlike other items there is no current inventory these are a lot of the time rare items. I sold this item to a buyer he claimed damaged and did the refund no questions asked, but I knew it wasn't damaged otherwise I would of mentioned it in the listing or never sold it. I did side by side of the condition prior and after and it's evident that the buyer damaged it for what ever reason... The card is not scracted, indented, and the autograph smudghed...  Now I have no $ and a card that is damaged and near worthless that can not be replaced because there are on 10 in the world. So am I just out $200. How is this fair to a seller especially an honest one? Why is there so much portection for buyers and sellers really get a raw deal?

Not sure if they are soldiers or how to describe.

I so rarely find any deco around here..wanna list it right.  But I think the more I research the more I confuse myself.  

 

1)Is it called Paperclip or peanut chain?

 

2)Would it be called a drop, lariat, or negligee necklace?  And would the 'choker' term apply here or no? The total length is 13 1/2" with a 3" drop  

 

3)And what type of cut are the clear glass beads? All I can think of is multi-faceted rondelles. (maybe polished?)  They have nice flat tables...love the stacked design

 

Anyhoo..I appreciate any help!

We have been on eBay for 5 years. We sell vintage parts mostly for Gibson. Maybe I am an Ostrich with it's head in the sand but what happened last month to cause 4k a month in sales to go to $243. We have higher prices becuae we sell good quality mostly to other dealers and overseas, but suddenly everything flat lined Oct 1st. I read the forum and community whiners and complainers I am neither just wondering..Did Google do something or are we beeing weeded out as too small to matter or i can go on and on with a list of paranoia just kindof weird how sudden this has happened. Something changed October 1st not one sale since

This eBay "explanation" is found in the Projected Seller Status area of your selling account. This is pure gibberish. Seriously, a third-grader could be more clear and realistic than this:

 

"The transaction defect rate won’t affect your seller level until you get 8 transaction defects from 8 different buyers within the most recent evaluation period. To remain a Top Rated Seller, you must have fewer than 5 transaction defects from 5 different buyers within that period."

 

"Affected" means "affected." So which is it? Is my status not affected in any way until 8 from 8? Or, as the second sentence states, is my account affected (losing TRS status) when I get 5 from 5.

 

You cannot have it both ways here. Sit down and draw Venn-Boole diagrams for an hour. You can't have "no affect" until 8 from 8, but also have "affect" at 5 from 5.

 

Geezus. I get tired of trying to decipher this nonsense.

I noticed on everything I've listed today that there's no longer an option that says "No International Shipping". It now shows the Global Shipping Program and it's already checked.

 

Only way around it (I hope) is be sure to check off all countries you want to exclude, which would be every country except the U.S.

ebay sneaking in global shipping

Hello, 

 

I am not a constant buyer here on Ebay so please forgive me. I am buying several items from a foreign seller, so there is a language barrier but they seem nice enough and helpful- they even used a translator to respond to my message.

 

As I add items to my cart, the postage adds up for each individual item. On their description and in their shipping policies it says "additonal items: free" and they say "For multiple items please wait to pay until you have received from a current invoice sent . Just so you get charged 1 times Postage & Shipping . Otherwise, it may lead to incorrect shipping information. Thanks in advance" (I have used a translator).

 

When I added all the desired items to my cart, I clicked "request total from seller" but I get an error message that says they do not allow this. I messaged the seller asking how to combine the shipping and they responded "Please buy ALL the individual items that you need .....after last purchase write to me. not complete itself. otherwise there is too much Porto (postage, I assume) I will send the payment information with postage only 1 time."

 

What do they mean, and how do I do this? I'd rather not pay $20 for shipping if they can send it for $5.

It really shocks me that Ebay allows Sellers to list prints from books published in 1970 illustrating the posters from the era and referring them as actual ORIGINAL posters by Peter Max when they are deffinately not, these posterbook prints are from a 11 x16 book, no publishing stamp, and even the name of the other poster being represented in the book on the nest page behind the print ) ( fyi.. the majority of true originals measure 24" x 36" ) with titles stating ORIGINAL not only in the specifications box,( original/reproduction ) as well as in the Description Box which Ebay has allowed for years, but now in the Header Titles ! And even stating poster's ( art ) being from the year of original publication and not the true statement being from the year it was actually printted. ( 1970 ) . Posters and any art is always worth what someone is willing to pay, im all for that, even if they want to pay 25x what it's actually worth, but with the exception that they know its not original with substantial value and not led to believe it's an original and has original market value, why would Ebay allow fraudulent listings ?

How to close store

I was contacted by Paypal today about a transaction Oct 7th. Buyer is trying to get the charge reversed, claiming she didn't buy it. But she did-she even left feedback! I provided the USPS tracking information and Ebay feedback information to Paypal but I don't want to get stuck with a loss even though she clearly received the item. Has this happened to anyone else? Wondering what my chances are..I don't want to take a loss and I don't want this buyer to get my brand new item for free!

Selling discussion

I just started selling on eBay a few months ago and already about feedup with all of this crooked stuff going on with eBay & PayPal.

Ever since,I started selling I always used eBay to print shipping labels.When ever a item sold I printed the shipping label in under 12 hours after buyer paid.Every item that I sold was in the mail with in 24 hours."Same day Shipping & Handling".

I learned today that eBay gave me a low rating for handling time.

Same-day or 1-day handling 5 of 8 (62.50%)This is wrong! All of my transactions was shipped within 24 hours.
91.30% of your transactions had tracking uploaded within handling time and validated by carrier

95.65% Tracking uploaded
(22 out of 23 transactions) Tracking uploaded within handling time 91.30% This is wrong!!!!All of my transactions was uploaded within handling time.
(21 out of 23 transactions) Tracking uploaded and validated by carrier 95.65%(22 out of 23 transactions)

 

Validated by carrier?What????!!!!!....USPS waits till the next day to scan their packages and I get low rated for USPS!!!Not right at all...

eBay is a big lie!Providing false information.Weeding is what eBay is doing.Weeding the small sellers out to make room for China sellers.

 

I see,PayPal announced their changing their 45 day buyer protection to 180 days starting Nov,18th.(PAYPAL ANNOUNCED)

eBay has not announced a word about eBay's Buyer's Protection Policy to -date.(EBAY HAS NOT ANNOUNCED A WORD)

 

Let's put this puzzel together,

eBay didn't make their profit goal this quarterly.eBay's ship is sinking.

eBay and PayPal will be splitting,parting ways starting the second half of 2015.

PayPal is saying bye,bye to eBay because,eBay's ship is sunk.

What other online platform alway's had a 180 day buyers protection policy.AMAZON.

In order for Amazon to accept PayPal.PayPal must change their buyers protection to 180 days which they did.

If you notice,eBay hasn't changed their 45 day buyers protection policy.EBAY HAS NOT ANNOUNCED A WORD.

All of us sellers may as well follow PayPal to Amazon..................

I have been shopping for some Callaway golf clubs and ran across several listings. As I always do before bidding on an item, I try to research the seller to make sure they appear legit.  I noticed right away that this selller has HUGE feedback.  Then I noticed that the positive feedback many times were left from the same buyer.  I didn't think much of it at first because I've purchased multiple items from the same seller before.  But then it stuck out like a sore thumb to me that this happens over and over again.  On the sellers feedback page, when I view the items sold and then I click on the buyers hyper link I can see the % of bids with that peticular seller, most of the time it is 75-90% range.  So this seller is apparently covering their negative and neutral feedback scores with fake purchases.  This is also convienient for the seller to run up bids or maybe NOT sell some thing because the price was too low.  I've tried to report it but who knows if eBay will do anything about it.

fraudulant feedback, seller boosting scores

I sold an item yesterday afternoon. I shipped/dropped off the item at the PO this afternoon. That's one business day like my listing said.

 

As I was printing out the postage this morning, I see the buyer has ebay mailed me asking when i was going to ship the item. Apparently she bought an item on Wednesday and expected it to be on the other side of the country using parcel post (as stated in the listing) by the weekend. I ended up upgrading the ship to priority (im now losing money on the item b/c of this) in hopes.

 

Ive looked through her ratings of other sellers and she's neutreled other people on shipping time too......Anyways....Since she emailed me does that give me an automatic defect?

My Account question

Hi , 

 

item number:301347146805

 

This seller lives in a country called " The Maldives " , therefore he is not able to receive payments with paypal.

 

Technically , Paypal does not work in his country yet , as a person in the maldives you are only allowed to make payment with paypal but not recieve them.

 

Explaining this to the seller on private messages , he asked me for a TT ( bank to bank transfer ) , I declined his suggestion and I explained to him that I would lose my eBay protection in case something wrong happens , Then he decided that open a claim on me for not paying for the item.

 

How is this my problem ? in the resolution center , It says i have to take action there , and the only actions options i got is either to contact the seller or pay for the item. and none of them are going to work , because he is an immature seller.

 

not to mention , that he is offering falsification , he admited that the item he is selling is a normal gold color iphone 6 via private messages , while his listing clearly tells that he is listing a GOLD Edition ( real gold plated ) , he has a picture of a real gold plated phone ( clearly not his picture ) , he go as far as writing things in the listing like " Iphone 6 GOLD Edition 128gb " and "This item is coated with a extra layer of aircraft alluminium" on top of all that he answered a question exactly like this :

 

Q:do you have rose gold or platinum edition?
A: I can get Rose gold too. platinum edition is the current one im listing is . If u want i can get rose gold two but u must let me know befor u want to buy...

 

What does this indicate you ? that this listing is clearly for a special edition Gold version of the phone. But no its not , therefore , I refuse to pay for this item now , even if he worked out a miracle and got his paypal working. I just can say , thank god I did not pay this seller .. I got lucky.

 

Now my question is , how can I close this open case ? how can I explain all this step by step to ebay ? to me , it seems like ebay is trying to avoid all methods of contacts with their customers.

 

Thanks alot for helping.

Sami

late with feedback

This will be my first holiday season selling on ebay and can't find the answer to a question.

 

Buyer wants to gift an item and formally adds the recipient's gift address on eBay and select it at time of purchase.  However, the ebay gift recipient address does not match the Paypal address, which may be the buyer's address.

 

If I ship to the gift address on the ebay invoice -- am I covered by seller protection if the buyer files a claim through Paypal? It appears the answer is no.

 

Thanks,

Part-time eBay Sellers discussion

In 15 plus years we may have posted 1 or 2 times but this situation is just to much fraud.

 

We have been a top rated plus gold seller for many years I think the account is past the 15 year mark now. We refund everything no matter what.  I describe ebay as a wild and sometime wonderful place to buy and sell from.  But then every few years eBay shows me exactly why we choose to put our energy into every other avenue other than eBay to grow our business.  

Why I refuse to allow ebay to become more than 10% of who we are as a business.  

 

This just happens to be on our buying end.  We purchase a Le Creuset pot that was described as new with a few scratches.  When it arrived that was not the case at all! The seller is brand new with no seller rating and only 126 feedbacks. Which we all know are fake postives as sellers are gagged when it comes to feedback.   MY FIRST MISTAKE, buying from a non rated seller!  

 

MY SECOND MISTAKE caring about the other seller. "We did not file against the "NEW" seller and open a case first".

We put the pot back into the same box, very well padded and returned it to the seller.  

 

We emailed and had a friendly exchange, fully expecting to get a refund and not have a mark against the brand new seller. The package was returned and a week later we had not seen the promised refund, we emailed and the issues started. The seller claimed the
