Surginstruments Informative - Questionable eBay sellers
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK -- Hi, I am a buyer and seller on eBay. Prior to bidding on items from a seller last week I had a 100% rating. I placed a total of 4 bids with a seller last week. The first two auctions went off last Friday and Saturday. I paid immediately through PayPal. When I looked over the bills, It seems that I was not the winner of the second purchase.Someone else won the auction. I was the second highest bidder. I never received a second chance offer, just the bill. I believed I won the auction and paid right away.
I complained to eBay. The seller threatened me to take my negative feedback off or he would not send me my items. Meanwhile I won 2 more of his auctions. I contacted eBay, sent the threatening email, told them about the abusive phone call that he made to my house and got "Canned response" about how to withdrawal feedback.What is this?????
I don't want to deal with this person again. He manipulated the eBay system somehow. Ebay states that that is impossible. I even gave them the winning bidder's name and they claim that I opted for a second chance offer which I did not.
They claim that I should pay for the last two items and if I don't get my merchandise, make a claim to PayPal.I was scammed out of $30.00 already, why put out good money after bad. By the way, this seller had 45 mutually withdrawn feedbacks for a 6 month period. Ebay doesn't seem to notice this at all. Beware of eBay's policies. I sent them the threatening emails. They have a page that deals with feedback extortion. This case fits the bill to a tee. Yet they advise me to pay for the last two auctions and then make a claim to PayPal. Shouldn't there be a law against this?
