Default The ultimate ebay horror story

I have over 500 positive feedbacks on ebay and only 2 negatives (one for my using plastic grocery bags for putting in box instead of bubblewrap, the other for sending one late). My first horror story came when I first started the acct. I bought some movies at a local Movie Gallery and put them on auction. Immediately the ads were canceled, I got a letter stating I was selling bootleg / counterfeit movies , and my account was in jeopardy. Wow, I wonder how they got their information ! No one ever came to my house, and confiscated the movies and stated they were counterfeit.
I promptly called the FBI and volunteered to send them the movies to prove they were the real thing. But then I got to thinking, I have a receipt from the store I bought them, no one from ebay or any investigating organization ever contacted me BEFORE my email was sent, so my only conclusion was was that I had priced my movie under what most of the other sellers had theirs for and someone was jealous.

Afterwards, I started selling good. Things were going great but I made a mistake soooooo many people do. I let someone buy several items and allowed them to wait nearly a month to pay me. MISTAKE!!! When they finally did, I had not even had them in the mail two days when they filed 8 NON DELIVERY complaints with ebay. My account was suspended permanently.

Even though I had the receipts from the USPS . Had sent the items with confirmation, THE FACT THAT I HAD NUMEROUS NON DELIVERY COMPLAINTS FILED (even though they were the same person) AGAINST ME, My account was ended.

you contacted the FBI......?

ok, competition, disputes, negs, ebay trigger happy assumptions on goods status....welcome to our club.

You can still sell on ebay successfully, you will always get these set-backs but if you make a few back-up stealth accs you will not be so upset when one or more of the above things happens again.

your ebay accounts are like your children and you hate to see someone hurt them, as you put hard work in to them. Gotta be like a rabbit, have and can make plenty more....
