ok heres the story i bid on a new motorola v600 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...item=5709271352
and i sent out my payment via money order in less than 24 hours. Its been a little over a week and i cant get this guy to respond to my emails, but when i leave feedback, he leaves me a neg feedback and still wont respond and i want my money back or my phone. What can i do? im almost ready to drive out where he lives and beat the living snot out of him, BTW read the feedback. This isnt the first time ive been screwed on ebay, and ive only used ebay like 25 times, i am murphy's law

Doesn't E-bay have some sort of cutomer service you can contact? I heard of people contacting them and that the customer service department has been really helpful.

contact e-bay's customer service, they will be able to at least get rid of the negative feedback, and suspend his account.

If it was a postal mail order, isn't it mail fraud, and a felony?

ahh... well, word of advise from one ebayer to another...

Don't do transactions with someone who:

has a "free" email account that is vitrually untracable

will not accept paypal as a form of payment (they have a great buyer protection program)

someone who has changed seller names often (this guy has had 3 changes)

If the seller shows feedback in their auction as an advertisment, do your best to confirm it... notice the dates on the feedback... he was just picking and choosing his feedback.

Someone who has less than a 99% feedback... especially when they have such a low feedback count to begin with.


I am sorry that you got burned. I did a bit of looking up some info based on this auction and I hope this helps you a bit. I can not garuntee the authenticity of this info, as we all know how "trustworthy" the internet can be...

Chi, Hsiao
363 S Arroyo Dr
San Gabriel, CA 91776
(626) 308-7896

I am curious, what address did you send your money order too?

John

Doesn't matter. If you mailed ANYTHING of value via the USPS it's mail fraud. Call up yor local Post office, you'll probably end up talking to the postmaster.

Did you notice the auction below it, Same phone/"Possible Fraud"

Why is he saying that is has never been opened when you can clearly see that it has?

Hope everything turns out well.

HE IS ALREADY SUSPENDED ! You need to get ahold of ebay safe harbor and file a claim. As far as not accepting Pay Pal check out paypal sucks and see why some of us dont accept pay pal any more. and we have a 99.99% feedback rating of 799 with over 875 postive ebay link So just because a seller dont take pay pal doesent mean they are a scammer.

Question..

I've heard alot about "Unlocked" cellphones. Does this mean you can use the phone with any cell provider?
