Heads up on a non shipper for eBay
#1
I have sent message after message to get a bumper that I paid for. He lead me along until the one month eBay refund coverage ran out.

I should of just turned it into eBay, but I was trying to be a nice guy. All my purchases are now strictly watched and if I do not get something as promised, I turn them into eBay and PayPal.

Just a heads up if you find yourself buying from this guy.

If you paid with Paypal, they have a different dispute process. I you used a credit card, you can still file a dispute and it is wire fraud regardless of the deadlines. You can still make his life uncomfortable.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Ebay isn't all it is cracked up to be. I know some sellers are bad news ..BUT.....ebay really took me to the cleaners as well. Remember if you are a seller you have no rights on ebay. I was a member from the first month they started (99 I think) I usually just bought. But last year I sold a mopar cross ram dual 4 manifold (very rare). It sold on ebay for 1K. The party paid for it via pay-pal. I gave them the shipping quote along with the insurance price. The guy said he didn't want to pay for insurance (it was high because of the value) So I ship USPO. I get a tracking number and send it to him. The manifold never shows up. The tracking number only shows my PO nothing more. The guy files a claim against me two weeks later. Ebay or pay-pal (same thing) pulls the money out of my account. I protest and they say they have to do this. So I am out 1K for my manifold 40.00 for shipping 150.00 for the auction fees (ebay won't refund) and to top it off pay-pal charged me a transaction fee for putting the money into my account and again for taking it back out! This total cost was over 1300.00 and I got nothing. I was 100% feed back for 16 years! Well I guess it was my fault for not paying for insurance but REALLY? I closed my accounts for both. Just remember that once you give pay-pal your credit card and bank account numbers you cant stop them from pulling funds out. Sorry about the rant and I realize you were the one taken here. I just wanted to post this to let everyone know that ebay isn't all that great. I only deal with vendors and folks on these sites for my parts. Also the USPO is worthless! As soon as they discovered I didn't insure the package they said they didn't have to do a thing.
thanks
Don

If you ain't afraid (even a little) then you ain't going fast enough!

Based on this experience I guess we need to add insurance to the shipping cost, and not make it optional. Good to know. I am glad I have mostly sold items under $100, which are automatically insured.
Thanks for sharing your experience.

I guess it all boils down to you have to trust some what no matter if it is a business or people. It is just a shame these things happen. I don't hold a grudge against any one. Not my way. But a 1300 loss for a retired person was a hit I won't soon get over. I miss ebay as it was a good source for hard to find parts. But I cant forgive them or pay-pay for condemning me for something I did not do. I have my PO shipping receipt to this day. lol
I hope things work out for you with this vendor. But one very good tool is these forums to help stop repeat offenders from making their living from scamming people. In my case this large manifold disappeared from the face of the earth. Which is another thing that haunts me.

If you ain't afraid (even a little) then you ain't going fast enough!

That's a big hit for anyone.
