Not resolved

Sells broken items, says they're tested and works in one area of the auction then below that says she "doesn't test for ....functionality"

Sends known broken items, then forces you to pay good money after bad to return ship.Offers a token $4 dollars to make you go away, but then also states she doesn't do partial refunds.

Blocks you from future auctions if you give a negative or neutral feedback, that's feedback extortion that falsely inflates her feedback percentage.

Won't photograph what's in an open box, just the box itself, then makes UPS damage claim on an item that was broken before it shipped.Attached picture is one example of many.

I've purchased several items, from lights to fans, to musical instruments.Onlyhad one issue with a group of 3 vent fans.....one box was missing some standard hardware.

No big deal.I bought a Les Paul guitar that was absolutely gorgeous, played well, was in fact in better shape than advertised.......


I had same experience with this seller, a lots of item not working at all but listing as tested working condition...


I read all the negative comments below and am a little confused as I have had a great experience buying from her.Granted I only purchased two items so I may have just been lucky.

I bought a gas trimmer that worked perfectly.

I also bought a thermostat that would read 3 degrees different than the actual temperature of the room.I contacted her to return it and she refunded me my money and said not to worry about returning it.


After being ripped off I searched for "karensbarn" only to find that there are others who have been deceived by this ebay seller.

I bought a studio monitor listed as "Brand new, never used, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging." It was clearly a used item, in plastic bag with styrofoam missing, so I returned it.

Now "karensbarn" refused to refund return shipping for "item wrongful described," which is in accordance to eBay's policy.

Research concluded, "karensbarn" is just an ebay username for the real seller, Shorewood Liquidation, Inc., situated at 205 Earl Road, IL.

(that was the address given for the return).Maybe "Karen" is the name of the 'woman' working in the office.

It seem, you will definitely be at the loser's end when there is a problem with any transaction you make with this, not individual, but company.

Karensbarn is junk.Ordered several things, mostly broke.

They don't check them.They buy damaged goods returned to stores and sell them claiming the boxes are messed up.

You don't have to pay return shipping for an item that does not match description in the listing.According to eBay, if it is listed as "used" it should be in normal working condition unless otherwise stated.

If not, it should be listed as For Parts or Not Working. This seller will want you to pay return shipping, but you do not have to according to eBay's buyer guarantee. All you have to do is open a case that the item is not as described and this seller will probably still respond that you can ship the item back, but you still do not have to pay for shipping yourself. The case remain open for a few days so that you can work things out with the seller.

If the seller still does not agree to accept the return and pay for a shipping label, you can ask eBay to step in and this will count against the seller. If the seller has enough of these cases where eBay has to step in without a resolution, their account will be suspended.

Please take advantage of your eBay buyer guarantee!Yes, it takes a few days, but this is the process.


Not only crooked but semi-illiterate."Functionality" is a made-up word.

"Function" is sufficient.Poor modern slang like "go missing" (which this crooked seller should do)

Just got ripped off too. I thought the email and product decription looked a little odd (reminds me of Nigerian scammers) so i did a search and found this site. At least now I know what i'm up against.
