We all need to take action. These attorneys need everyone to call 1-888-670-2630 #3204823. They need us to tell them our story. Take the time to call and speak with them about Buyers always right.

call this number 1-888-670-2630 #3204823. They want to hear our stories so they can do something about this. It's not fair to sellers to go through this. We spend our time wanting to make a little extra money for Ebay to award this to the buyer all the time.

I got ripped off $10,000 from a ebay car dealer who "forgot" to mention the engine was blown!? ! Ebay sides with sellers cause that's where the profit comes from. I have a case number with the FBI for vehicle fraud! I also filed a complaint with the local authorities and the DMV where the dealer registered!
Payback time! I will also start a class action law suit against EBay not following its own polices! Sad world we live in! Hyenas everywhere! STAY AWAY FROM EBAY! I've learned a very expensive lesson!

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CAN NOT LEAVE    NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FOR BUYERS !!!!!!!!!!  EBAY YOU NEED TO CHANGE THIS POLICY , MANY MANY PEOPLE DO NOT SELL ON EBAY BECAUSE OF THIS ONE WAY FEEDBACK POLICY.

Can something been done on the Federal level? EBay is internet theft right? I think they are owned internationally because in my dealings with customer service they barely spoke English and in my last call to them I told them I am reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and the lady on the phone told me to go ahead they still would be closing my claim and not refunding my $100 on their buyer protection plan.

I recently was ripped off for $100 on EBay. EBay sided with the seller, removed my negative comment and closed my case within 5 minutes of me opening it for the buyers protection plan. EBay will back up ripoff sellers so beware. Do not buy electronics from PCRS in South Carolina. Product was defective so I returned it. Seller stated they never got the product back but the post office claimed different. EBay took the seller's verbal claim over the post office. SMH never again

Re: Ripped off by yet another buyer! Ebay's Buyer Wins no matter what policy.

in reply to bytebackmontrose

I've been both buyer and seller, but lately while selling things I fnd buyers just using ebay's lax buyer return policy to overturn my "no returns" policy.  One obviously had buyers remorse after buying a piece of jewelry she hoped to pay $200 for, but ended up buying it for $350.  It was perfect, flawwless.  She claimed it was damaged and scratched.  Of course without any proof, and despite pics of a flawless piece, ebay and paypal sided with her. Another purchased a size 9 ring but because it was too big for her (maybe not a size 9) finger, she claimed I misrepresnted the size.  Return approved by ebay, despite my having original sales receipt showing it was a size 9.  And just today (this is the 3rd incident in 2 weeks!) a buyer claims that the perfect peridot cuff she received doesn't have original packaging (which the listing never offered! and oh, by the way, is missing a stone. All stones were there and secure when it was carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sent Priority Mail.

 

Funny thing is, this last one seems to only want to communicate outside ebay and is making noises about "how expensive it will be to repair this". I have answered her from ebay telling her to send it back.  When I called ebay to ask what happens if what I get back is not what I sent, their answer was basically "nothing we can do".  Seller protection, my as*.

I have bought eBay gift cards paid for item. The next thing I know the item is marked unpaid and the money is not returned to my gift card. This has happened several times with eBay blaming me and refusing to give me my money back. They are crooks.

Buyers on Ebay have no rights, sellers make claims and withhold information, and say **bleep** like the photos are the item description so study them carefully, when the photos are of **bleep** quality. Buyers purchase items in good faith only to realize that there has been a lot of information left out of the item description. Sometimes you buy something only to receive a message saying some bull**bleep** excuse of how it's going to take months to send it out to you. Im tired of this 'not allowed to give negative feedback ' mentality if went to a shop and feel you got bad service then you would rate the business accordingly. Why do Ebay sellers think they can treat customers however they like and avoid negative feedback?
Long term Ebay customer who's had enough.

1st scenario - seller claims that I have sen't him fake bulbs (not original, not genuine), after lots of messages where I have proved that bulbs are genuine he opened case, ebay decided in one minute and return him money, of course buyer left me negative feedback. I have reported him. Then I investigate and found another seller that have same problem with same buyer. We have booth reported him and nothing happened.

 

2nd scenario - seller claims that item is not as described and want's money back. Of course item is exactly as described and fully working. I refuse to refund. I've got negative feedback. Reported him and nothing happend.

 

3rd scenario - first seller claims that item is not as descrived and wants money back, then he claim that item is broken, wants money back and sends fake pictures (not item that I have sent), then he opens case and claim that he haven't received item at all. This case is still actual, I have replied in case, uploaded tracking information and reported him. But 99% that ebay will decide in buyer's favour, because it's automation computer process. You can't decied in one minute who is right.

 

PLEASE REMEBER, BUYER ALWAYS WINS ON EBAY AND YOU CAN'T DO NOTHING ABOUT IT, JUST POOR HOPE THAT SOMETHING WILL CHANGE ONE DAY.
