eBay member manzotrejo won an auction for tickets. His real name is Fidel Trejo and he lives in Riverside, CA. Over the course of a week, he was contacted three times through the eBay contact member system. No response. Finally, he responds and says he wants the tickets for use the next day and he wants to pick them up. The auction listing clearly says no pick-ups. He says he didn't pay attention to that. Never heard from him again and no payment. I contacted eBay and received final value credit for their fees. He will receive a black mark for non-payment. Of course no seller can look that up and know this.
I will be leaving negative feedback. Of course, he only has one feedback, so very likely he doesn't care about his feedback and isn't very active on eBay. Sellers like me are hurt by these callous and selfish people who do not follow rules. Winning an auction on eBay is an binding legal contract to the terms of the auction. They expect everyone to follow their rules that they make up as they go. I wasted time to contact him, re-list the tickets and when I re-sold the tickets, it sold for $5 less.
eBay really doesn't care about its sellers. They will only kick off a member after repeated non payment or for fraud.
The irony of the whole situation is that if he had paid when the auction ended, he would have received the tickets by the time he wanted to go over a week later. He probably went anyway and paid full price instead of saving 20%. What an IDIOT!! I have over 99% positive feedback rating and he thinks I am probably going to cheat him. The only person who ever left me negative feedback is another bum buyer who refused to pay because she said she didn't have the money. Then she leaves ME negative feedback.
Now eBay wants to eliminate the ability for sellers to leave negative feedback for buyers. This means sellers will be completely at the mercy of idiot buyers who have absolutely no regard for eBay rules and no disincentive to leave negative feedback, whether deserved or not, because buyer can never receive negative feedback in return.
eBay sellers out there, do yourself a favor and put manzotrejo on your blocked bidders list. HE IS A WASTE OF TIME!!
