    Should I leave this person neutral or negative feedback?

    I won an item on eBay and paid immediately via PayPal. Seller e-mailed me next day to say they had already sold it to someone outside of eBay. Is this allowed? I haven't received a refund yet.

    I'm thinking seller is just saying that cos there was a typo in listing and I got a bargain and should I leave this person neutral or negative feedback?

    No that is not allowed. Report it to ebay!

    You probably won't get the item, but you should get a refund!

    It's not allowed but sadly it is often done for reasons already stated!!.
    Not much you can do about it apart from reporting to Ebay.
    You should get a refund though!

    Did he mention in the listing that it was listed somewhere else.

    Not a lot you can do really, you should receive a refund as it will not be delivered.

    Still report him to ebay, I am sure they will be interested in the fact that he is using ebay to sell their goods outside of there.

    neg him too.

    Open up a dispute to make sure you get refunded. Neg them and set their DSRs to 1s but unless your maybe willing to go to court over it EBAY won't make em give it to you

    A seller can do it anytime. Usually when the listing ends and they didn't get what they was looking for.
    I don't think reporting would do anything as the seller gives a reason.
    I think the most you could do is neg.

    Yes they mentioned it in the listing that it was listed elsewhere but bit of a co-incidence that it sold they same evening auction ended. This is the e-mail they sent me:

    Hi there,
    I am really sorry but it got sold around tea time last nite. Unfortunately I was not at home and my husband sold it as it was also advertised in the local paper. If I had been here I would have taken it off auction Really sorry to have messed you around.


    Do you think I should still neg and report them? Seems a bit wrong?

    Just pursue the refund, seem nice enough and they did state it was for sale elsewhere, not worth the aggro.

    neg them after you get the refund! its their responsibility to remove the item from sale if its sold....

    neg neg neg and more neg.. underhand ,

    what was the bargain??? ebay number??

    Do not open a dispute just ask for your money cannot understand why they have not refunded you asap ? Also leave the neg once you get your money back.
    This for sale elsewhere trick is a load of ********.

    Thanks for the replies guys but if I leave negative feedback, I'm likely to receive something like this in return:

    BUYER LEFT UNREASONABLE NEG, I REFUNDED YOU WHAT MORE CAN I DO

    I don't sell on eBay anymore but still don't want to give the impression that I unreasonably neg people.

    Put a reminder on your phone 45 days (or whatever the limit is) from the auction ending. Neg him then, won't have time to reply...lol. Whatever it is it can't be negative.

    You shouldn't be afraid to leave neg feedback worrying about what they leave you, that's just wrong.

    They cannot neg you they will just have to leave positive feedback with some crap written on it all you do is follow on feedback with some more crap :-D

    If they leave you any sort of negative feedback via a positive Ebay will remove it for you.

    Hi there, you should have now eceived an email with my response to your case that you opened earier today. I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused and that is why I sent you the message very early this morning before I went to work. I did not know until I was in work that you had paid so my intention was to issue a refund as soon as I got home. I was very surprised to see that you had opened a case against me. Anyway I hope you are not intending on leaving me negative feedback as this was an inoccent mistake apologies

    Neg, yes or no??

    I'm sure its a template letter they all use the same one :-D

    Also they are being too nice in this email nobody's that nice on ebay its only when they want something looks like they are trying it on with your emotions.

    Get the money back, then neg them - why wouldn't you!?

    Neg Neg and neg again!

    Neg ... if you don't they will do the same again to someone else.

    You guys seem so heartless!! Surely neutral would suffice as they've refunded me (albeit after PayPal got involved)?

    Maybe I should wait a week and see if they re-list item?

    Negative feedback it just sounds like someone listed an item didn;t get what they wanted for it keep an eye on the seller the item will be back on ebay in a matter of days

    I agree, if I see that the seller lists item again I will neg.

    and I take back what I said, seller still hasn't refunded me! I just assumed they had as they made out they did in their response in the resolution centre.

    I know I'll get my money back, whether it's from them, from PayPal or from my credit card company. I'm just going to wait a week and see if they re-list the item.
