I recently started selling on eBay and it’s gotten to the point that I have a store. I’m a “power seller” and a “top seller” and my feedback rating is 100%. It’s easy to achieve- just be normal and not an active low level liar.
I’ve been mini scammed a bunch, always by sellers, never by buyers. Ebay was so disgusted with the last scammer that they gave me my money back and I got to keep the item too. But it wasn’t a big deal item.
It wasn’t like ROCKBAND 2, my biggest scam.
I wanted drums, I wanted the game, I saw Rockband 2 going cheap and so I bit. This was when Rockband 2 was exciting- I was young. I didn’t notice until after I paid that when you scroll way way way way way down the page, in tiny letters, it said “This is just the box- game not included.” One of those.
Ebay gave me my money back and notified the other buyers. Cool. Scammer gets banned, I get my money, all done.
Except 2 weeks later, there’s a ring at my door. The mail carrier was there, completely confused, with a HUGE box, flattened and hand painted blue. They had actually sent me the box! THIS is the part that kills me!
- I already had an immediate refund so they didn’t have to send me anything.
- If they’re going to be literal, and that’s their defense, they STILL scammed me. I ordered a Rockband box, not a regular cardboard box painted blue.
- You went to the trouble to paint it blue but didn’t think to write “Rockband” on it??
- It actually would have cost them money to send it- around 16$- just to mess with me? And the mailman? And everyone it touched on it’s journey?
I feel like meth must have been a factor.
I actually used that huge box in my house as a kind of baby gate for my cats. But now that I think of it, that probably wasn’t smart. At worst maybe it had revenge bugs in it, and at best, they probably at least sneezed on it.
Anyways I never got bugs and I got rockband cheap soon after, so it all ended well.
