Being harassed on eBay! Yet another update.....ugh!!!
« on: May 05, 2013, 02:50:02 PM »
It all started when I bought this lot from a seller in my own state and I thought it was strange that she was charging $25 for shipping but I thought maybe she was going to overnight it or something or maybe she didn't know the exact cost of the package and maybe would refund the difference later. Well, the package shows up and it cost her a little over $5 to send! And what's more, she puts in a packing slip expecting me to give her a 5-star rating and says if there's any problems to contact her first.

So I message her and politely point out that she charged $25 for shipping and it cost her $5 and ask if I can get some sort of refund because it's against eBay policy to overcharge by that much and she comes back with "but it's for my kids' swingset." I politely state that she should have passed that along in the auction price and not in the shipping price, so she said she'd sort that out later. That was yesterday and I still haven't received anything.

But this morning, I get a bid on my auction from bucksnut.03 from the same state we're both in and I get a message that says:
"Sorry I don't want your pony. It seems that you buy more than what you sell. The pony looks dirty. Please cancel my transaction. Sorry that I got your hopes up."

And I also get a message from bucksnut.03 that says:
"Looks like you rob from the poor. What a horrible thing to do. Buy something for a third of the price and resale it to triple your money. Is that what it takes to pay your mortgage?" 

I'm positive these incidents are related. I turned bucksnut.03's messages in to eBay for harassment, but is there anything else I should do? I haven't left that other seller feedback yet. I was still waiting to see if they'd give me a partial shipping refund, but can I open a case for that?

UPATE: Apparently, the seller called me a bad eBayer in the feedback, too, even though I was polite about everything, so I went ahead and left her a negative and filed a case with eBay.

The seller's eBay name is lieubug2469 and she's selling more ponies, so I'd stay away! She's had 4 negatives and 1 neutral in the past year.

Wow, that is crazy bluerose! But I believe your right that it most likely is the same person. If you have already reported it, I am not sure what else you can do except do a follow up with ebay concerning the matter, maybe. Just to make sure that they are looking into.

Comments like this always make me angry. What business is it of theirs what you buy and sell and for how much?? It's not like selling things to make a profit isn't what EVERY SINGLE SALES BUSINESS IN THE WORLD does. Ugh.

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. I hope eBay can come up with some solutions :( Hopefully with the messages where the seller admits they overcharged on postage to make a profit for themselves ebay will take some kind of action against them.

if the seller left you feedback that is a 'false positive', I think ebay will remove it if you contact them, too.

Obviously that seller needs to reread ebay's rules, charging FIVE times the actual shipping is ridiculous!  If they haven't given you a refund yet, I'd def open a case!  If she wants to buy her kids a swingset, then she should save up, not rip people off; if she continues that behavior no one will buy from her and she'll just have LESS money.

I agree. I think you're handling it in a proper and preofessional manner. Ban her from bidding on your items and be done with it. Screw loose, unglued, trainwreck. All acronyms that would definately describe the mental state of this chick.

open a case against her for the shipping. That is WAY over the limit. Make sure you save those messages as well.

updating. Have you looked at the feedback? seems bucksnut.03 is a frequent buyer from the lady that overcharged you shipping.

If she's charging you $20 extra for shipping, isn't SHE robbing YOU? Lol

What's the seller's name? Thank you, I won't think twice about blocking them both.

I think bucksnut.03 and lieubug2469 are the same person after looking at the feedback. They both do the Attttt instead of A+++!

I would be on the phone with ebay and have them look into this. You are right. They both do that Atttt thing on their feedback! I bet it is the same person!

:/ Eh, Looking at it. It looks like that second account is for shill bidding. Unless I'm looking at it wrong.

And if that is the case, how STUPID on her part.

Unfortunately, I don't know how! I've been trying for the past hour to try to report shill bidding, and eBay's guide isn't easy to follow!
