In Topic: Strange Or Funny Ebay Stories

15 September 2014 - 02:13 AM

Two stories come to mind concerning ebay - one is a ceramic Robby bank won from a European seller.. I've had some trouble with packages arriving banged up from Europe so I insisted the seller double box this fragile item. He assured me that he was an experianced packer and there would not be any problems. My ceramic Robby bank arrived packed in Bounty paper taped with scotch tape with an address label slapped on. No outer box what so ever. Amazingly the ceramic Robby bank was undamaged..................imagine if this seller was not an 'experianced packer'.

 

In the early days of Ebay my account was hijacked and a seller used my good feedback to sell items he didn't have. He was selling this very high end hi-fi equipment. I couldn't get into my account to stop the auction and Ebay safe harbour wasn't ending it either. The  bids keep coming. So I said ok I'll bid and win it - let the thief try to collect from me and I'll send the authorities his paymnet info to track him down. Well with seconds to go I bid $15,000 and wouldn't you know it I get sniped. Now I'm in a panic that someone is going to get ripped off for over $15,000. I was able to contact the winner (back in the day you were able to do that). He calls me right away and I explain what happened. I'm expecting him to thank me -instead he starts screaming at me that I made this story up so as not to honor the deal and he was going to leave me negative feedback!!. I simply said - ok jerk  - send your $15,000 for goods that you will never receive and hung up. Well fortunately Ebay safe harbor did contact him that my account was indeed hijacked. No good deed goes unpunished.

Robert Lesser once told me - if you wake up sweating in the middle of the night thinking what have I done - then you did the right thing!!!

 

On the flip side as Ray Rohr would say about the items you passed on - regrets - always regrets!!
