Anyone we can make an eBay buyer/seller avoid list?

  1. I would love to do this if possible.


    I sell (and buy) a lot on eBay, and up until a few months ago I had 100% rating in feedback...until some guy decided to royally screw me.

    When I list cards the shipping price is like $2.50 for the first card (and I explain exactly how I ship in the description, i.e. penny sleeve, toploader or snap on case, team bags if necessary, bubble mailer, etc.) and usually each additional card is $0.50 or something like that.

    We some dude bought 8 of my auctions, then said he wanted a cheaper shipping rate. I declined and offered to have him not pay if he didn't want too. He paid...then filed a Paypal issue (forgot what its called) TWICE...lost both times. so then he goes ahead and gives me a negative on EACH auction (8 total) because of the shipping thing! :ohmy:

    I was pissed...eBay did nothing, and finally i just contacted him and paid him $5 to remove it. Thing is, he could only remove 5 of them. So i still have 3 negatives.

    I'm still not over it! And after the fact I looked at his feedback...he's done this to many, many sellers.



    So yea, wondering if we can make a list or something? I'd love to post his eBay name so others don't get screwed.

    I'm not sure how well it would reflect on TCZ, if we "expose" people like this.. :unsure:

    On the other hand, it would be nice to have a list of bad ebayers.. Its just, anyone could name anyone.. regardless if its true or not.. and exposing private pm's and such, is really not a good thing
     
  4. i guess you're right, but i just wish i had a warning. if i had known i never would have dealt with the guy. still pisses me off to this day lol.

    Yeah, I hear you.. Like I said, it would be nice if there were a site dedicated to revealing cheaters on ebay.. cause theres a ton of them..

    Don't know if that would be good on ths forum but I agree with you, if you clearly state the shipping cost and the method of shipping then they should not be able to leave a negative because of price.
