EBay Complaint - Called A Crook
WASHINGTON -- I just start selling on eBay in December of 08, but I have been buying from them since Jan 02 with a 100% rating. Since selling, my items have been pulled at least two times and now they suspended my account for several days. I am selling my own handbags which I either bought or were given as presents. These are LV, Coach, etc. all top name brands in excellent condition. They basically told me there was no way I could prove they are authentic so they just pull them. Even though I have the numbers LV and Coach and other such High Price Items usually have to no avail. When I spoke to the representative on the phone right after they had suspended my auction, I told the phone representative I have never in all my 60 years been so embarrassed, I have never cheated anyone in my life and didn't plan to start at this point in my life. He said, "well if you had been speeding for all of you life, but got caught at 35 speeding, does that mean the policeman is singling you out." I told him I did not appreciate his analogy and asked him if he knew what an analogy was and he said yes. Then I asked, "this is being recorded right", and he said yes, I told him he in essence had called me a crook by that analogy. He said no one had called me a crook and I told to go back and listen to the tape.
What, I would like to do is sue eBay for slander since he is their representative he slandered me and my name. I told him I would not be able to continue to do business with eBay or PayPal, but of course I have to wait until next week to be able to get on to my account to cancel it.
I SUGGEST TO ALL, TO PATRONIZE OTHER AUCTION SITES ON THE INTERNET AND HELP THEM GAIN ON EBAY. I HAVE FOUND SEVERAL AND EVEN SOLD A LV LUGGAGE PIECE WITH GREAT FEEDBACK!!
