I ordered an item on Ebay last month. Paid for it using the sellers online checkout. A week later, still no tracking or any sort of confirmation that the item was sent, so I sent an email. It went unanswered. Two others went unanswered.

So today, about 3 weeks after the initial order, I sent a more strongly worded email asking where the item is and if I don't get a response by the end of the day, I'm disputing the charges. I get a response, the guy claims to not have received the order. A few minutes later before I get a chance to respond, I get a second email with a UPS tracking number and the message "The item was alredy delivered to you, dipshit!".

DIPSHIT? WTF? I check the tracking number, and it shows whatever was sent was delivered to NEW JERSEY! I'm in ARIZONA! I haven't heard back since I have responded.

What kind of business calls their customers dipshits?

Credit card dispute initiated. I'll be sure to post about the company on various motorcycle forums I visit. How's bad publicity for ya, dipshit?!

man...that would have had my blood boiling if I had received that email. I hope you gave him a piece of your mind.

What was the company and/or ebay name?

What motorcycle forums are you a member of? Im on R1-forum.com and RSWarrior.com

Nice. eBay used to be a great place, 'til it got discovered. I'd never had troubles with orders of deliveris until the last year or so. I even bought a couple of motorcycles online without trouble (one was my current ride -- 2001 Triumph RS...3mi, full warranty, $5500.)

I bought some 50BMG projectiles from a lady in St. Louis...

A week after payment, no contact. So I telephoned to her, no answer. In fact there was no answering machine even. So I sent e-mail ofter e-mail, and telephone call after call.

A month later I threaten to file a criminal complaint for theft by fraud in St. Louis. Suddenly I get an e-mail saying that her "spam blocker" haddisposed of my e-mail's and she had never seen any of them.

Long story short, I got my bullets (which where utter trash, but really cheap) and didn't pay any shipping. Left bad feedback (up to that point she had 200 good and 3 bad) and went about my merry way. The biatch blocks me from looking or bidding on her auctions because I had "harrassed" her trying to get my merchandise... A month and a half later, she has 40 non-shipments of bullets and EBAY banned her. A week later she was doing business under another name pulling the same scam.

I called St. Louis PD and filed a criminal complaint. 2 months later I got a check from the seller for a full refund AS PART OF HER CRIMINAL RESTITUTION.

If EBAY won't help, file a criminal complaint. It works.

Post the guy's ebay ID, email, and other stuff. I can have some fun with him... :machinegu

Definitely interested in getting the company name. Guys like that may get away with it for awhile but eventually it catches up with them. The power of ebay is the rating system. I have had very good experiences in all my ebay transactions and found folks very eager to do what it takes to conclude a satisfactory transaction and avoid getting negative feedback. Don't know how well it works when you escalate a problem to the ebay folks but I'm sure I'll eventually have to find out.

The only problem I have with the rating system on e-bay is that if someone does you wrong and you leave them a negative feedback, they will just leave you a negative feedback in return, albeit unjust. So, I have been hesitant to use feedback as an answer.....There is no way around that because if you read e-bay policy, they cannot regulate feedback...it is between the members.....they have no mechanism to decide right or wrong, it is opinion of the transaction....whatever verbeage they use....ect.

Feedback by nature is experience based... Caviet emptor, or "buyer beware"...

I refuse to do business with people where ther are more bad experiences than good...

Use you own good judgement, and always, "BUYER BEWARE..."

Yeah, MO, I don't do business with those who have too much negative either. My feedback is 100%. But I am weary to leave it. Reading this posting and another bad one posted about by Nos about an e-bay experience, I have been even more careful on e-bay lately. When I sell something I now require insurance and tracking.

Ebay itself I have never had a problem with, it's that stupid Paypal. Good luck getting to the bottom of this.
