Total Sham | Ebay review from Richardson, Texas

I bought an item on ebay that only totalled about $10.00. I thought I would try the bill me later which kept popping us as the easiest way to pay. About 2 months later I noticed an email had arrived with a bill attached. They had hit me with about $35.00 in service fees. I went ballistic and called their customer service threatenibg to call the State attorney generals office . They backed off and reversed the charges. I wonder how many people just pay the bill and arent aware of the excessive fees and penalties. I am surprised that EBAY allows this to go on.

EBay seller stole my money

Veeteedee(734) seller on eBay stole my money. I ordered and paid for an item in Sept. after a week seller contacts me through ebay to say she did not have boots, but she would have them in november. After looking at her oustanding record in ebay Idecided I would wait. November came and seller now said she lost tracking number. At this point i contact ebay who tells me 45 days have passed, seller has no responsibility, I should do a chargeback. This seller is still selling on eBay, with an almost perfect score, because once 45 days had passed one can't even comment on them as a seller. It's unbelievable tha eBay would actually harbor delinquents.

They are keeping my Money! | Ebay review from Fair Oaks, California

They are keeping my Money! - Ebay review
Ebay is the worst on keeping their promise and the highest to sell on their auction. I payed well over 500 each month to put in my items and sell, and now I am restricted because Paypal had blocked me from receiving money from customers. And no I always sent my items out to my customers. I was an honest seller. Someone had got a hold of Paypal account number on the internet and ordered 175 worth of make up from hong kong, so I called paypal to tell them to cancel the card. Then I ask them to send me anohter card and that is when they put a restriction on my account and would not send me a new card or let me receive money on my account so I could not sell on eBay anymore. Now they are keeping all of my money I have in Paypal which is not much but is over 400.00. It is a lot to me. I really need my money. I am raising 5 children and having a hard time making it. I lived off of eBay and now I am restricted. As of today I am still trying to get my money out of my Paypal account and they are saying I can't close my account because I am restricted. They see I have not used them for over 6 months because they will not let me so why are they restricting me still. I just want them to come clean and pay me what is mine. They have lots of money and they do not need to steel mine from a little seller like me. I hope they see this and think of what they are doing to people. Thank you for listening to me and have a wonderful Holiday. Kayla

They have implemented a lot of fascist mentality rules and restrictions which I DO NOT understand and their customer service is incpmprehensible!

Leaving both EBay AND Paypal after twelve years of doing a good job selling.

I feel like someone insane is now running things and is looking for new ways to screw people!

Seriously! My account was "limited" after twelve years to make sure I am a "good seller". Really? No chance that good tracj record for twelve years migjt be a clue.......

And customer service is a bunch of snotty kids who are bored, annoyed that you called, and not very helpfull.

New EBay really suks!

They have put a lot of new ruled and restrictions in place which make it pretty hard to do business with them, so I am leaving EBay after 12 years as a seller.

Hope others do as well!

NON REFUND OF MONEY | Ebay review from Rockford, Illinois

Update by user Jan 05, 2012

nothing has changed.

No contact from them and no reply to any of my e-mails.

Original review posted by user Dec 05, 2011

This seller uses the name' top1ratedseller' for ebay transactions but their company name name is ZKarlo eBay Sales. Address as shown. e-mail address Karlo@aol.com. I made a complaint against ZKarlo for non refund or replacement of faulty product In a nutshell I ordered an e-book reader.I received it but it did not work properly. They instructed me to return it, which I did, and they replaced. The replacement acted exactly the same and did not work. Again they said to return it for a refund. Which I did. a day later I get this from them :- Dear xxxxxxxx, We do apologize for any issues your having with the item. We would love to get our feedback revised from the negative comment that you left us to a positive. We are willing to offer a $25 refund for you on this purchase and we would even be willing to let you keep everything without having to return it. Please let us know if that is satisfactory and we can send the feedback revision request to you. eBay is our full time business and with the economy in slow-down it is effecting everyone. We depend on our eBay sales to pay our daily expenses and are trying to keep our eBay standing as best as possible. If you have any further questions please email our customer support directly at ask@zkarlo.com. I replied saying I had sent it back already. NO REFUND WAS EVER RECEIVED. Further e-mails to them got the response that they could not do anything without the eBay item number of my purchase and my eBay user ID please? Which was sent a number of times. Then they stopped answering my e mails. I lodged a complaint with the better business bureau in Mn. They contacted ZKarlo and got the answer. to quote' they state they did not enter into a contractual agreement with you OR they have chosen to voluntarily walk away from the job prior to any work being done. WHAT THIS HAS GOT TO DO WITH RETURNING MY MONEY I DON'T KNOW. plus they did enter into a contract by accepting my money. They contracted to sell the product. They did not voluntarily walk away from the job prior to any work being done because they sent 2 faulty products that were returned. . I WILL NEVER DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY AGAIN!!! THIS IS A WARNING FOR EVERYONE THAT EVEN THINKS ABOUT DOING BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY - DON'T, RUN DON'T WALK AWAY, YOU WILL NEVER HEAR BACK FROM THEM!!! A personal observation is that these are the most ignorant, for ignoring my e-mails, and obvious liars, because of replies to 2 better business bureau complaints filed by me, I have ever had to do business with.

I have used ebay off and on as a seller and buyer for more than 15 years. I lost my job last year and needed to make an income. I cashed in my 401K and spent $10,000.00 on Liquidation.com buying MDSE to resell on Ebay. Shortly after receiving my MDSE I listed...

This type of extortion of product on ebay is running rampant due to the way the cases are ruled in favor of buyer and against and negative to seller. Pro extortioners practice this way and facilitators open door policy of encouraging the seller to refund plus leave the buyer with the product encourages such criminal behavior.

Because ebays policies conduct business across state lines an ongoing federal investigation of this issue is presently occurring with possible class action law suit to follow. If you feel you or any sellers you know feel they have suffered a loss or unfair discrimination as the result keep your eyes open for notice of such class action when posted on the net. Help us catch the bad guys and keep the free market clean.

Shafted by ebay

about 3 weeks ago i purchased a truck on ebay for $2,800. Everything checked out through what ebay claims is an extensive carfax type check list. The truck reportedly had 59,000 miles. I made the purchase. I am in syracuse ny and the truck is in Charlottesville Virginia. I sent a $500 deposit that was required by money order and i flew to Virginia to pick up the truck. When i got there the truck was as shown in all of the photos. It was not registered, it sat on the street with no registration. i test drove the truck and heard a pinging noise in the engine and i returned to the seller, he said there cannot be anything wrong i drove it 2 weeks ago from philadelphia pa for 8 hours, no problem. we checked the oil and it had way too much oil in it. He agreed to return to the mechanic that he says he took it to a couple days before and that mechanic assured him it was ready to make the trip to new york. The mechanic looked at it and said we put too much oil in it, we will change it, that is why it is pinging. I drove it again and it seemed a lot better. I paid the seller the balance in cash of $2,300 and i got on the road. Within 4 minutes the engine started smoking, clanging, knocking and had no power, i pulled over next exit. i called the seller and he said sorry you bought it. I took it back to him and he agreed to have another mechanic look at it, the next day. i had to get a hotel and the next day the mechanic spent 6 hours on it and first said it was 02 sensor and then map sensor and then plugs and then teh distributor. I paid to hav all of this done and still no bettter. i requested a compression test and he did that, on cylinder on one side had no compression. he said it needed a valve job on one side, and he would do it for $500 . I flew back home expecting to return a week later and pick it up. i get a call sunday night from the mechanic, he said i am sorry the entire engine is blown ,it will cost $2,000 to repair. I called the seller, he refused to talk to me. I had at least 20 phone conversations with ebay and at least half of them told me i was protected by buyer protection upto $50,000. When i file a claim they email me back and come up with a different reason why i do not qualify and say cant help. Even though several agent told me i qualify because i paid but i never was able to take posession. Ebay is a twisted, lying two faced organization and now i am out $4,100 for a $2,800 purchase and i dont even hve the goods and ebay refuses to help. To every one out there stay away from ebay and especially a seller named nubiandeals.

well you know what pulltype if ebay had not given this vehicle a 100% clean bill of goods in every area and if their insurance policies were not so confusing and if everyone was a mechanic i might have done that, but that does not excuse ebay from their customer service people jerking me around and giving me 25 different stories. You dont know what you are talking about.

Your own fault -- follow your first hunch and walk away. Ebay will have a better chance to get your deposit back.

Ebay allows scammers to damage your reputation!

Ebay supports scammers and refuses to make restitution, even when there is proof of the unjust treatment! Then, they refuse to cancel your ebay account and they do not reimburse you. Ebay and Paypal will lie to you and steal from you! They should be outlawed! I have sent many emails and I have spoken to the ebay customer resolution center, which is a complete farse. They will never help or fix problems. Ebay is out for one thing and one thing only: profit at anyone's demise! Never buy or sell anything via EBay or PayPal!!!!!! Ebay really Sucks!!

Hey, "Ebay is awesome" and "USMCDEATHCARD"...

Have either of you been raped? No? Then, by your logic rape doesn't exist and any woman reporting being raped is lying. Correct?

OP, pay no mind to them, they're hired goons of eBay via a company called Liveworld (Google it and you'll see what's going on).

Ebay admits mistake but I have to pay for it?

I sold an item. The buyer got the item and said it was not as described. He wanted to return it and started a case. I contacted the manufacturer of the product who confirmed that my desription was correct and put it in an email to me. I responded to the open case with the manufacturer's response stating that I was correct. I got a notice saying that ebay ruled in favor of the buyer. I called ebay and asked why? Long story short, they didn't read my entire response or realize it was from the manufacturer, go they tell me "so sorry". In the meantime I can't appeal because the buyer has already got a tracking number but hasn't shipped the item. I have photo documentation and the statement by the manufacturer. Ebay has pretty much blown me off along with PayPal who sides with ebay. My question is "is there anything I can do about this or having to waste $50 on shipping ?

Actually, ebay turned around and made it right. I still got the bad feedback but you can't please everybody. The information from the manufacturer did the trick.

And this is why a lot of sellers won't ship to buyers with little/poor feedback.

Of course you can't do anything. Wait to get the item back from the buyer then relist it, granted you don't get a Latvian rock.
