eBay Complaint - EBay allows sellers to sell items not in stock
I just recently had a problem with eBay seller dressed2the9s after doing a BIN (Buy It Now) and paying immediately. I kept emailing them asking about my item (with no response back) and it took them 11 days just to tell me it wasn’t in stock. They offered a refund which I accepted but after another week of asking about the refund I finally got a response that the item had shipped.
Perhaps now would be a good time to point out I needed these shoes for a wedding. In every email I sent them, I mentioned the date I when needed the shoes but they "never got that email".
I did everything I could. I paid on time (within an hour of doing a Buy It Now). I kept in contact with the seller (10 emails from me and one phone call which they never returned). And I still got slammed by eBay because the seller eventually did ship (25 days after I paid). I should have just filed a Non-Performing Seller and Item Not Received.
Now I am stuck with a retaliatory negative feedback because I told the truth in my feedback to the seller. And a pair of shoes that are useless to be since they were finally delivered after the wedding. dressed2the9s is notorious for leaving retaliatory feedback (which all reads like it was written by a nasty gradeschool kiddy). They sell items they don't even have in stock and then leave negative feedback claiming it is the buyers fault!
And now they are harassing me about the webpage I created that contains all the emails that I sent and received from them. The truth hurts and I hope it hurts them tenfold!
