My boyfriend has just revealed to me that he bought me the Sims 2 & some expansions packs from Ebay last week, it was suppose to be a suprise for me as I have had that dreaded bug recently. However, he still has not received them and the seller is not replying to any emails.

To top it off, another Ebayer has contacted him stating that they have also bought this Sims 2 Set (the seller had three sets of these games, all the same, all used which does sound pretty dodgy) and that they also had not received theirs and that the seller will not respond to messages. This person left the seller negative feedback and the seller has now left them negative feedback stating they never paid (which apparently is not true). Also, this person claims that she thinks that seller has obtained her phone number from Ebay as her phone has been ringing non stop for the last few days but no one speaks when they answer...............great! A nutter then!

I am gutted as I would have loved those games and I am gutted because my boyfriend has to deal with this seller now.

STUPID EBAY!

Was it paid for by Paypal? If so the payment should be covered. Hope it turns out ok for you.
#2
if you have paid by paypal contact them via their website and they will get your money back
#3
if you paid through paypal you can contact them and they will sort it out

Yes, my boyfriend paid via Paypal. £45 in total I think he said.

It's just really annoying. I mean why list things with no intention of selling on in this case, most likely that they seller did not have the items at all! I mean who has three sets of games (The Sims 2 and about four or five expansion packs) all used, all the same expansion packs. If he would have told me he was going to get me them, I would have told him to stay away from this one because it just looks dodgy.

Today is the 7th day since he won them so I don't think he can open a dispute until Monday.

Why?

I've found ebay on the whole has been totally trustworthy. Once though, I bought a watch that was faulty, heard nothing from the seller despite numerous comms... until I posted negative feedback. They retaliated with their own negative feedback and claimed (or apparently someone on their behalf) that they had nearly been "fatally injured" in an accident - and that was why we hadn't had a reply from them until then!!

Was gonna suggest your boyfrined runs you a nice hot bath and gives you a massage to take your mind off your disappointment that was all.....:thumbsup:

No wonder less and less people are using ebay with this sort of story.

Like others have suggested, contact paypal and they should help sort the matter out for you :)

it really annoys me that some sellers on ebay just dont care. im a busy mom and do sell and buy on ebay. i make sure that every sale is treated fairly, and that when i win a bid i pay straight away via paypal. its a shame that some others have to spoil what is generally a good site. hope you get your money back and that it doesnt put you off using ebay - the genuine members - in the future.

Yes, I have never really had any problems on Ebay, the occasional non payer but otherwise fine. Never had anything like this.

I am more annoyed for my boyfriend because he tried to do a nice thing for me and it has gone t!ts up!

Lol, that is a good idea! I am 20 by the way. I thought you were going to ask why on earth I wanted the Sims 2 Games. Its slightly embarrassing to admit that I quite like those games :oops:
#13
dont forget that PayPal charges a small fee when raising a dispute plus it takes a "FEW" days to complete

Also PAYPAL or eBay will never give out your number to anyone. So my thoughts on that would be your beig pestered by someone else - contact your local mobile service provider


Personally send the seller an email via eBay and ensure you click the send me a copy - but state to them that if you do not hear from them in x days you will be contacting them and rasing a dispute :thumbsup:

I managed to obtain another ebayer's phone number via ebay quite easily (as a buyer).

Yes, once you are involved in a transaction I believe you can simply request the sellers or buyers details which includes their full name, address and telephone number.

I am hoping it is resolved easily but I just can't see it happening........

I have nearly 1000 feedback on eBay and have seen my fair share of unfair transactions.

My advise would always be the following:

1. Always pay via paypal - if you can't check their feedback and make sure others have paid by other means and were happy.
2. Always use a CC with good "internet fraud" protection (I use B'card) for any "iffy" deals - you can then claim the full amount back through the CC provider (and I have!).
3. I've only experienced Paypal insuring for £125 minus £15 costs (OK for some deals - but not for bigger ones) - though recently they claim this is £500 - no experience to share I'm affraid.
4. I've "won disputes" via paypal/eBay but when the little message in the listing doesn't say "you're insure for up to £125 (or £500)" then all you get in these cases is a sympathetic email - no money back!
5. At the end of the day it is a community - so I you do get stung I see it as my duty to other fair people to leave negative feedback informing others - and yes, sometimes it comes back but that's life!

Best of luck most are top folk - it's just a few bad apples as with all walks of life! :x

Totally agree with that. I've still got 100% despite leaving negs twice. If I did though, I would post a reply with a URL to show exactly what has happened - and people can judge me on that. Just not enough space to do this in feedback!

It is an area that ebay is so flawed with. Why should you have to take a neg for telling the truth. Especially so if your complaint is upheld and its clear "your" neg is just spite.

I would say I now avoid ebay and paypal - but bought 3 things this evening that represent a good deal - but all from very high long standing ebayers!

Why do you see it as your duty to continuously harass me? Nearly every time I post a thread or make a comment on a thread you seem to think it is your duty to try and p!ss me off?

You really need to get a life and stop going on about past discussions were I voiced an opinion. It is my opinion and if you don't agree I couldn't care less but I am not having you "hijacking" threads to have a go at me.

Its nothing against anyone on here its just that particular user seems to have it in for me ever since I made a comment on a thread about how some people spoil their children. It was not aimed at anyone but that user seems to have taken it personally. :?

Unfortunately, if you put an URL in your feedback, your feedback will be removed by eBay as it counts as "feedback abuse".

I agree with your sentiments, and wish there was a way to give longer explanations of what has happened, but if you ever were in such a situation, I'd hate for you to go to the time and trouble of doing this just for your feedback to be deleted.

To see what else constitutes feedback abuse, (such as not being able to refer to any eBay or PayPal investigation :x) see here.

i got one e-bayer who left out a few crucial items (eg. new trainers without laces??) -- guess what her lame reason was -- she's disabled, single mom la di da so she wont be able to send the rest seeing that she's disabled - how old does she think i am - like i believe her! if you can't if you can't and deliver the goods, don't set up a shoe business on e-bay. left her negative feedback as deserved.

another one sold a pair of leather bottoms for bike -- and the zip's broken. it cost me nearly the same to repair it. the cheek! (also, can't trust the average bloke to give the correct measurements!)

here ya go, if you feel insecure with the link i have given you just simply log into your ebay account first through their normal site then click on link, enter user id and item number and their details will be emailed to you.

I had to tiny url it but incases like this were help is needed and your unable to post ebay urls its the most i can do.

Ebay is not all that bad ive been a seller for years on it have encountered a few problems with sellers + buyers but that's not to say everyone's out to get you and rob you.

I have continuously harassed you where? You were selling games, I agreed that they were too expensive as they could be bought new cheaper elsewhere on the net and now you're spitting your dummy out. I don't regard myself as having any duty towards you at all my dear, I think your ego is over-inflated. I suggest you take your own advice on board and get a life of your own sweetheart.
