    Post Your Crazy, Insane and Problem eBay Customers Here... Sellers Too!

    Name names, give reasons, that is what this thread is for. I've seen too many threads over the years about crazy buyers and some of the things they come up with in order to try and get a refund. Post them here. I don't have any myself at the moment but I'll post an older one later today.
    Some sellers can be just as bad so don't refrain from naming them also.

    It has been awhile for this one so I do not have the buyer info. Picked up some Elvis pictures at the local Flee Market. Put them on ebay and had a buyer said hers had been stolen and some of the one I have are like the one that were stolen from her. She lives in CA. So everything but actually accusing me of stealing her pictures. She became the highest bidder and a non paying buyer.

    Hmmm I haven't had too many issues lately but I had a problem/nightmare buyer 3 months ago. I usually sell my watches with a no refund/return policy as well as stating I am selling the item as is. I had a lot of issues with people popping the case and tinkering around with the movement or the battery. After they would damage the watch beyond repair they would claim it was broken to begin with. Anyways I sell one of my watches like this on the best price offer. I told this buyer in 3 separate messages about my policy and that I will not offer a refund. So guess what happens....a week after she gets the watch she complains that its broken, etc and wants a refund. I told her again about the policy and refused the refund. BTW the watch was working when I sold so I have no idea what she was attempting to do. It gets escalated to ebay and they rule that she can return the watch....I still do not know why they ever allowed this.

    It then took 2 weeks for it arrive to me and literally 10 min after the tracking said it arrived she called and had ebay rule against me and yanked money out of my Paypal account. When I received the package it was evident that she popped the case and used a screwdriver on the movement. I talked to ebay again and they still wouldn't budge. They said they read all of messages between the buyer and I but I know this wasn't true. I escalated it up to the manager so that he would actually read the messages and they ruled in my favor and reversed the decision.

    There are millions of users on ebay. Some good, some bad. Outing a few bad ones here or there is like trying to count the grains of sand on the beach. It is a pointless endeavor and there will always be more users.

    Glass always half empty? What you say is true, but cutting and pasting a block list will take me less than 1 min. If that saves me 1 bad sale, it is worth it.

    That's okay, it darn sure doesn't hurt anything, so what's the problem? We may get a few good nutcase stories out of it anyway. I do think your "grains of sand on the beach" analogy is a wee bit of a stretch though. Granted there may be millions of ebay users but only a small fraction of a percentile would be deemed whacko or problematic. If you don't want to contribute then don't, no one is twisting your arm, geesh.

    Just recently had a buyer want to return a super gold sucker about 2 years after he bought it! He said he could not figure out how to assemble it!!

    Off the top of my head- One of the buyers on my list bought a Presidium Duo Tester from me. It was my personal unit and it worked fine. He tried to tell me that it needed to be recalibrated and that it was going to cost him $100 and that I need to give him a partial refund in order to make it right. I told him no problem please ship it back and I would gladly refund him upon receiving/inspecting the tester. I never heard from him again. He tried though.

    Selling Candy I have a certain type of scam of trying to return 2 months later. Or returning a box of 36 candy bars and there are only 10 in the box. Or the most common one 2 weeks after delivery they didn't get it. Instead of allowing us to block buyers, they should allow us to block certain areas or Cities!!!!!!!

    I had a buyer tell me the 14k necklace I threw in my junk lot didn't register 14k or even 10k with acid. I wrote back that that necklace was xray'd by the jeweler, and is definitely 14k. Then he tried to convince me the jeweler didn't have an xray machine. Gave him the jeweler's site and told him to contact him. I also told him, send it back and I'll send you something else.
    He said never mind, surprise surprise. Guess he didn't want to get caught in a lie.

    I have one now who bid on a bracelet. He emails me afterwards and said shipping is ridiculous. Instead of sending it to china, can I send it to his friend in San Diego, here's the address... Well only sold for 30 though. He has to pay for it before I can do anything. And then I print the label and send it to him. But he's an idiot he does not understand this. He wants me to send him a invoice for the address in San Diego which I'm not able to do. And then cancel out his shipping to his country. Which again I am not able to do anything with. He wanted to know if I can have it there by tomorrow which I'm not overnighting a bracelet to San Diego. And he has a feedback of zero with being a member for the last 36 hours. I'm pretty sure he's not going to pay. I guess we'll just add him to the list of people who suck on eBay!

    This is a grand scam, and he was probably pulling it on dozens at the same time. If you ship to not his official addy, then he claims never arrived and all the money gets refunded to him. You get the privilege of paying to ship your free stuff to him. You could show the tracking, but that is only proof that you sent it some where else
