View Full Version : Forum post ruling

29-Jan-2007, 14:43
Hello All,
I'm very new to this group and have a question about whether a post would be allowed and which forum it would be best suited for...if allowable

There is a person on Ebay making fraudulent L/F equipment listings (gets the money and never sends the item). I would like to post as much info about this as I can in the hopes of protecting as many others as I can. Yes I was burned...bad.

Thank You Ted, I just didn't want to violate any rules of this site by posting specific information about this "seller?"

Did you pay through Paypal? If so, you may well be covered through their protection.

My experience with Paypal is that their "protection" is worthless. I got burned, and after a long correspondance, the non-delivering seller agreed to a refund. He transferred fund to Paypal, who notified me that the funds were awaiting my approval...

I tried at least forty or fifty times to get the funds, but they just kept sending me form letters telling me I should accept the transfer. After a few months of this, they told me they'd returned the funds because I didn't accept them...

In another case of non-delivery, they just put my claim on hold until it expired. There isn't any protection I can see, except Paypal protecting itself from any effort...

I will never understand why so many have troubles with paypal, I have used them since day one and they are my main system for processing and I have never on either of my companies had any problem with them..

I have not experienced any problems with Paypal.

I have four incidents of non delivery of goods and i have got a refund
every time.

I use my EuroCard (MasterCard) for Paypal and doublecheck the statement
from EuroCard Denmark every month.

I usualy avoid sellers with under 98.00 % in feedback.

I've had pretty good success with Paypal so far. I did encounter the same situation as Mark did, with the "Claim your Funds" issue. In my situation it was because the person sending me money was international. I don't understand the wherefores and hithertos, but Paypal was telling me that I didn'thave an account in that domain. Whatever the #$%#$$$ THAT was supposed to mean. They sent the person trying to pay me instructions on direct paying to my account and I got the money. As I say, I don't understand a bit of that or why they couldn't just pay me directly to begin with. But Paypal resolved the issue to both of our satisfactions.
