unfair collections of debt

Unfair collections $22.61. Debt is not my debt. Victim of id theft. Never had an ebay account fixing to turn me over to collections for this debt sent them a 4 letters in the mail saying I am victim of id theft, they refuse to do anything. Charging me a 1.5 Apr late fee every month. Keep on sending harassment e-mails have told them to stop. I have made a number of calls to Dan Janakas of ebay at [protected] they refuse to respond. Account ID E164104785001 is not my account credit card stolen that was used to set this account up. EBay Global Collections needs to go pawn sand because I refuse to pay a debt I did not do I did not list anything.

overdue account

I am disabled and am now unable to work, and somehow Ebay screwed me with my seller fees.I paid over 1/2 and made payment arrangements with them, and then all of a sudden these rude ### people from IC Systems started calling me.
I explained my situation to one of the IC Systems representitives.and was told that collection efforts will continue.
If I find out they have somehow tapped my phone line and called people that I call on a regular basis, not only will I file FEDERAL Charges, I will make every attempt to be there at their home office with Federal Agents to affect the arrest.

And if they try to hack into my PC, that would be the biggest and last mistake IC will ever make.

I also have my phone wired to record all calls now.So IC Systems, consider this your notice that your calls to my phone are being recorded and will be used as evidence.

Now piss off!!

    I have been using their service for a while and I really enjoy their wonderful service. I use to search constantly for a good supplier for my small business and that use to be such a big headache. Now I don’t have to look any more because not only did I find a good supplier, I also made new friends that take care of me. I am now a big buyer, and that gives me many privileges within GOGOEC.COM. you can rest assured that the sellers here are serious about taking care of your needs. Because of GOGOEC.COM, my business is growing bigger everyday. i recommend this site to everyone that want to make their business bigger and get more profits.

asks for social security number

Ebay/PayPal have a new scam now. We had an account with both and were actively selling for several months. We had a perfect 100% feedback rating. Suddenly and without warning eBay and PayPal suspended our accounts. eBay cancelled all of our auctions and had the nerve to demand payment for the fees too! Since the auction info is wiped out we have no idea what the correct fees should even be. They claimed the suspension was due to "issues" with our Paypal account and we needed to resolve them first. We went to our PayPal account and it said that there had been "suspicous activity". ????? No explaination. It asked for three things. A. verify our phone number, which we did. Fine. B. Verify that we had shipped a particular customers item. We researched the item and the customer had only paid for it twelve minutes before Ebay suspended our account! How fast do they expect us to be! And this on a Sunday too! C. Now the last one is a real doosey. They want my SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ! What are they nuts! There is NO reason in the world they need that! They claim it's to verify my identity. What? The only way they could verify that is to take my number and do a credit check, and I never authorized them to do that nor will I. I will be filing suit in small claims court today. It will cost them at least for an attorney to come to court and defend them. I will also let everyone I know what they are trying to do to decent working people. It's wrong and the only way to stop them is to expose them. So pass the word, tell all your friends what Ebay and PayPal are all about.

    The registration process for ebay and paypal both do not at any point for any reason include your SSN.Gaining knowledge of the same would not help identify you to them at all.
    Either you were talking to scamsters or youve made it up.

    Before I post my usual post here, I would like to correct "The dude that hates ebay". You are wrong. Paypal ALWAYS Asks for your SS# after the account has been open for a little while. It has happened to me. They plan on soon reporting all income to paypal accounts to the IRS. Trust me, I know. Now for my usual post about my experience with Ebay and Paypal and their scams and monopolies:

    I signed up to ebay about a month ago, and was subject to and experienced the Ebay/Paypal Monopoly first hand. I did not want to use Paypal to accept payments as I already have my own merchant account with First Data and they are half the price of Paypal. When listing my first item, I scrolled to the part where it asked how I would like to be paid. I un-checked Paypal, and checked credit card. On the next screen it said that in order to accept credit cards I had to fax a copy of my merchant account invoice to them to prove to them that I can support this method of payment. I faxed them the necessary documents, and the games began. 2 days went by and no message from them about what was going on. Then I called them and was asked why I did not want to use paypal, and that it is the preferred payment of ebay. I explained to them my situation, and they said they would look into the situation, and they would get back to my via email. I waited another 2 days, and nothing. I called them again, and they brought me to the listing page, and they walked me through and told me to click Paypal for payments accepted, and I told them I did not want to accept Paypal, and they were dumbfounded and did not know what to do. They knew nothing about how to integrate my merchant account. They told me I have to wait for T&S to contact me. The next morning I called them again, and was once again told to just use Paypal and recieved a pitch on how they were safe and secure. I asked to speak to a manager, and they told me the manager was not available. I then called again and they finally got to the bottom of things. I listed a couple of items, and after the first one ended, the buyer told me there was no way for him to pay. I called ebay again and they told me there was a "Pay Now" button in the email that was automatically sent to them after the auction ended. The buyer told me there was nothing there. I got this same response from every winning bidder that day. I called ebay and they once again told me that I should accept Paypal for payments until they get the situation fixed. I told them I would not pay for the listing fees so far and they told me I have to pay them, and that it is like listing an ad in the paper and the listing fees are non-refundable. The next day they told me that they fixed the problem, and then I listed a couple items, and everything seemed to be good, until the first auction was down to the last minute. The account was blocked by Paypal, and I was informed that they needed more information on my Paypal account in order for the account suspension to be lifted. I called ebay and they told me the block was from Paypal. I called Paypal and they asked for my SS# and receipts for the items I was selling. I told them I never opened a Paypal account, and they told me regardless, they would still need the information in order to lift the suspension, and until then, the account would remain blocked. I called Ebay and they told me there was in fact a Paypal account linked to my ebay account and that there was nothing they could do. Now, I NEVER opened a Paypal account nor did I link it to my ebay account. To me, this is yet another shady desperate attempt by Ebay to force new members that do not know any better to use Paypal to accept Paypal so they can make money from every angle. When I call them and tell them this whole scenario, they ask me if there is anything they can help me with, otherwise the phone call will be disconnected. They no longer respond to my email regarding this and they told me that if I keep contacting them through ebay live chat that they would bring up charges for Harassment. What a way to run a company. I also notice that when you post ANY negative comments about ebay that are valid in the ebay forums, the comments are removed and you are banned from posting in their forums. They are trying to cover up anything negative about their company, but truth be told..., check out Ebay and Paypal on the Better Business Bureau and see all the complaints they have since January. There are well over 10, 000 of them. Ebay soon will be a thing of the past and they will continue to lose thousands of members a week to Amazon, just like me.

conceals paypal thefts and internet fraud crimes

TRUE STORY of eBay concealment of PayPal thefts, Internet fraud and cover-ups...

So a customer bought my $500 item on eBay... Now I'm happy, right?? I checked PayPal and money's there. Now I get the package ready to ship...

But just as I get ready to go to the Post Office, that little voice in the back of my head says, «I’ll maybe just take a look at PayPal again... "

And EUREKA - the payment had been REVERSED... Just literally minutes before the expensive item was to be mailed out - NO MONEY!!

So I call eBay to get details and report it to the authorities, but they can't reveal any ' Top Secret ' details of a (FEDERAL) offence - Mail Fraud...

NO reason for the reversal... NO info on Buyer... NO EXPLANATION for eBay's GROSS NEGLIGENCE in failing to call, e-mail or in any way inform me (the happy Seller) of whatever problem had arisen BEFORE the item was shipped...

IF the item had been shipped, imagine the hassles trying to recover it (or get $$ back on an uninsured item - since Buyer did not pay for insurance)... and eBay has FAILED to ever explain, apologize or give any details on the CRIME committed... and NO evidence on any prosecution or punishment...

Nope, eBay just wants to cover up MAJOR CRIMES and THEFTS and FRAUDS - not prevent or solve them...

CBS' 60 Minutes revealed a major crime ring stealing $2, 000, 000 in merchandise from Home Depot - and SELLING IT ALL HAPPILY ON eBay... even after Home Depot told eBay what was happening, eBay did NOTHING to stop it...

Imagine - they will suspend people for simple (and unjustifiable) Negative feedbacks w/o prior notice or opportunity to present contrary evidence, but FEDERAL CRIMES?? WIRE FRAUD, INTERSTATE MAIL FRAUD ? ? just let 'em slide...

    I had purchased 2 GPC navigational systems off ebay for approx. 76.00 each. I waited, no product. I emailed and emailed with no return response. I contacted ebay and pay pal. Of course, I had paid. Only later to find that this person or person had sold hundreds of these with multiple complaints over a 3 month time span with ebay doing nothing to correct this. Ebay knew this was a scam and did nothing to protect buyers. So, I made my case to pay pal and won. Ha, ha... I never saw a dime of the money! I have never bought on ebay or used pay pal again. It's only a scam! Where is the better business companies when you need them. If I sold a fraudulent product I would go to jail. Ebay and Pay Pal just make more money.

terrible service!

I have recently started using eBay and have purchased two items and made a few bids on other items. One of the items I recently purchased was a server, and I immediately paid for the item using PayPal. The money was received by the seller. The next thing I knew, I received a notice from eBay that my winning bid was canceled, and that I was suspended for 'abuse'.

I have made multiple attempts to get an answer as to what constituted this 'abuse'. All I am given is a generic canned answer that says nothing. The customer service at eBay is not providing any service to the customers. I was very concerned about the $560.00 that I had already paid the seller, and immediately called him.

I left a message, and reported the incident to PayPal. The merchant responded immediately to the PayPal inquiry, and claims he has already shipped the server, and has no idea why the bid would have been canceled. He says he had nothing to do with it. I have received a form letter from eBay wanting me to fax them all kinds of sensitive personal financial documentation, that frankly seems a down right invasion of my privacy and none of their business.

I am not asking them for a loan, and they are not providing me with anything other than a service. I don't give my barber this information, and he is happy to cut my hair. I have not reported anyone for anything on the system, have yet to leave any feed-back, as I still have not received either purchase. So I am in the dark as to what I could possibly have done to be banned indefinitely from eBay.

There is no one to talk to at eBay who either cares to help, or has the ability to help. This is a personal slight, and I am very upset over this. eBay has called my integrity into question, and doesn't have the decency to even explain what I am accused of. All they point to is the following:

'...we may limit, suspend, or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to our website, remove hosted content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the Site if we think that they are creating problems, possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies.'

I have done nothing in violation of this clause to my knowledge. Searching the internet seems to show that this happens quite frequently at eBay. What I am most concerned with now, is my personal account information. I am a service engineer, and I currently am working in China. It could be possible that my account has been hijacked and someone has violated this policy. But I cannot get a response from eBay as to the nature of the violation, so I can't confirm that this might be the case. In any event, I will not be faxing eBay copies of my driver's license, passport, banking information, utility bill, or anything else that they are requesting from me.

I was certain the email I received was a phishing attempt, but logging into eBay confirms that the account is blocked, and the same email is in my inbox there. I had heard such good things about eBay. I now have to wonder what is going on here. I am not a seller. I am not a re-seller of any goods I purchase there. I am just a guy that likes to look for good deals and who doesn't have a lot of time at home to shop.

Ebay offered me a way to locate things and have them at home when I finally get back. I am so upset over this mess, more due to eBay's lack of concern than I could ever have thought I would be. I hope that posting my complaint and concern here will generate some kind of decent reply from eBay. I don't see how they can stay in business when this is how they treat customers.

    There's a pattern here. Ebay is going after people that have excellent feedback and appear to have no real issues that warrant investigation. They are demanding personal information that is NOT their business. I'm not sure of their motive. Perhaps they are working on marketing their credit card or getting into the telemarketing data sales game. ( companies sell you personal info to other companies looking to sell you something. It's a multi billion dollar business! ) It could be something else but whatever it is Ebay and PayPal ( owned by ebay ) is getting a little too personal. They asked me for my social security number and bank account numbers to "verify my identity" GO POUND SAND! If enough people REFUSE TO GIVE EBAY/PAYPAL THEIR PERSONAL INFO it will hurt them in sales. If you have been damaged by ebay suspending your account, go after them in small claims court in YOUR jurisdiction not theirs. make them pay, make them work for their defense.

no trust and safety

PLEASE READ

So it appears that once you are suspended you can never be involved with eBay, even though I had a stellar performance, what I seem to see is that I have 26 negative feedbacks totally and a positive feedback score of over 3600, now my calculations say that is less than 1 percent.

What I asked is what I need to do be involved with eBay again, apparently there is nothing I can do.

Please be specific about what I need to do resolve this and or be specific that you never never ever ever want to deal with me.

You probably will not respond, as you have already indicated in this email. Regards, Bill Pfeiffer

Dear Bill,

I reviewed our records and found that you were suspended due to violations of our Seller Non-Performance policy. Specifically, you have generated unacceptable levels of buyer dissatisfaction in your transactions. Based on feedback from the buyers who have interacted with you, one of more of your accounts falls into the bottom 1% of all eBay sellers with regard to buyer satisfaction.

After reviewing the information that you provided in your appeal, as well as all of the information related to our original investigation, we've concluded that significant improvement did not occur. As such, your eBay account will remain suspended.

***Note***

Although we will read any future appeals you send, we may not respond to your inquiries.

We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding this matter.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Jaeger

    My last email to ebay:

    I have taken quite some time to review my account suspension. I believe that my suspension is in error for the following reasons. 1- My 12 month DSR is in the green (in good standing) for all aspects except for the shipping time category were we are at 4.38 2- My 3 month DSR is good in all aspects except for shipping time it at 4.39 3- In 2009 I was a gold power seller going towards platinum as we were in the process of adding new inventory and a (TOP rated seller). We can get back to that level. 4- We had some shipping speed problems that caused lots of undeceived item cases. Almost all items are now received except a few that we can reship and we know how to avoid this in the future. 5- We had our account restricted and were unable to sell on EBay since March. We were waiting for our DSR shipping time to get back up and were resolving shipping issues. Our DSR was improving as you can see we did not generate any new 1s and 2s in the last 30 days DRR rating. On May 10th our account was blocked even if improvements did occur. 6- All the negative feedbacks we received 10 in total out of more that 3500 positives are in a 60 day period indicating that we were great sellers before and can be great sellers again. We have the ability to do it. 7- Since we started selling on EBay we generated more than a million $ in sales in total. We are restructuring our shipping department and understand what caused our low shipping time DSR. It will not happen again. We want to continue to resolve remaining issues and start selling on EBay again. Please do not let our shipping time problems kill our EBay account

    ebay is killintg a lot of jobs and has gone crazy with the new DSR system. It is clearly unfair. I had zero negative feed back and Zero Neutral feedback and over 100, 000 positive feed back. Still my account has been perminatly suspended.

ebay suspension 1 year to lifetime?

Ebay suspended my account for 1 year for Shill Bidding. I was selling an item, and my sister-in-law who lives in my house and uses my wireless network placed a couple of bids on my stuff (without my knowledge). She knew I was trying to make a profit, and she also knew if I had known she wanted to buy it for my Brother i would have sold it to her for cost. So she placed a couple bids but didnt win the item. Ebay informed me I was being suspended for 1 year for Shill Bidding (bidding up the price of an item). I offered proof of the situation both on paper (with IDs) and also offered verbal verification but I was still Suspended.

After alot of pointless emails to the idiots at Ebay I gave up. I decided to accept my punishment for not knowing the rules.

I was just informed that I will not be reinstated after the 1 year like I was told many times. No explanation of this ruling... just a one line email.

    They suspended me cuz someone allegedly hacked me and tried to look at or buy porn..huh?
    Can't prove it wasn't me. And so what? I checked thee adult box when i signed up.

    Plus i had a seller sell me an old-rotten- dog had lived on sweater , was supposed to be new or like new.

    It stunk and was old and full of animal hair, i wrote the woman, so she bad mouthed me in feedback, calling me names and a liar and kept track of all my activities and kept saying rotten things about me to others... she was lying but tho i could prove it, ebay just kept allowing it and refused to remove her salanderous comments.

    There is a forum I found on the internet that is free, and helps with Ebay, PayPal, business and the law. Just post any question, the experts will answer it if it has not already been answered!

    The forum has a lot of expert advice on it. http://www.modeeworld.com/forums I found advice there about how to avoid EBAY suspensions, get past PayPal limitations, also lots of detailed help on creating your own business, getting past trademark violations, VERO and lots more. Plus general advice on how best to sell on EBAY, what sells the best, how to get the best price for your product, really everything related to EBAY and internet business.

    Also advice about how EBAY really works and how PayPal really works. The inside scoop.

    Beautiful forum. I was made a moderator of the forum and I love it!

warning about vendors &no refunds& policy and poor quality products!

If any reader of this instant warning/complaint about Ebay vendor "Vanguard Distributors" takes a moment to "Google-ize" the phrase "piccot123", she/he will see all of the positive AND negative "feedback" published about me by various Ebay VENDORS as a result of my many Ebay online purchases. I am an Ebay BUYER, not a vendor.

One of the (only two) negative feedbacks there about me is by an Ebay vendor doing business as "Vanguard Distributors", who makes knowingly FALSE statements that I am a "WORST CRAZY EBAYER... VENDOR BEWARE... MULTIPLE CHARGEBACK ARTIST!!... DANGEROUS NUT!"

This deliberately false negative feedback was in retaliatory response to my merely demanding from "Vanguard Distributors" a full REFUND for the poor quality TV they sold me. (I have just today, 11-6-07, lodged a FORMAL complaint with the Ebay officials, demanding that they force said Ebay vendor to WITHDRAW his slanderous feedback against me and, moreover, that they DISCIPLINE him for such unprofessional behavior.)

CONCLUSION: All Ebay, Internet, and otherwise online BUYERS/SHOPPERS, such as this writer, are hereby warned, in good faith, to think twice before doing any kind of business with Ebay vendor "Vanguard Distributors" for the following reasons: (1.) This vendor has a strick "NO REFUNDS" policy, so, if dissatisfied with a product, one must try to get their money back via their own personal bank, Visa card agent, or by other non-vendor means; (2.) Said vendor sells very poor quality 7" LCD flat panel TV's made by a China-based company called "SUPER"; (3.) Said vendor publishes on Ebay knowingly FALSE/SLANDEROUS negative feedback when an Ebay buyer lodges negative feedback against him for legitimate reasons; (4.) And, lastly, said vendor, "Vanguard Distributors", operates out of a mere US Postal Service P.O. Box, rather than a legitimate BUSINESS ADDRESS.

To wit, for all of the foregoing reasons, may all online BUYERS beware of said Ebay vendor "Vanguard Distributors". Thank you.

buyer reversed charges!

I sold a pair of very expensive bedding shams for $125.00 to an ebayer ,she was quite happy with her items and left me perfect feedback,I was happy with her.She made a fast and timely payment to me through Paypal all was well. Over 3 weeks later her bank reversed the charges and without any notice to me at all, my paypal acct. is deducted 125.00!!! Paypal did not even seem to know what had happened or how it happened. The buyer claimed to not know why they reversed it. I am assuming she may have bounced a bunch of checks or something. Anyway I have offered for her to just send me back the shams and we will just forget the whole mess.

However I guess she must really want to hang onto them as she will not even mail them back to me! I would like to serve this as a warning to others not only on Ebay but inher area,she is a thief and has no conscience. Her name is Paula Willbanks, 101 E. Cardinal Street., Ector ,Texas 75439. I hope maybe she will see this and do the right thing before I have to go ahead and send in small claims papers. Thank you for this great service you offer.

    This lady should be ashamed of herself. She lied. Paypal made an error and reversed payment three weeks later, and they later corrected this. In the meantime the shams were shipped back to her, which I still have the postal return tracking receipt. Instead of working to help figure out what happened, she immediately began threatening to sue so they were sent directly back to her. I have never bounced a check, and she should be completely ashamed of herself for posting this trash. The tacky part is that the shams were received back by her before the date she posted this nonsense.

    Hummm, that's funny..I came across this complain after googling "[email protected]" because I am selling a vehicle and I received an email from this person but they have an IP in China which I found to be suspicious which is another reason I wanted to see about this person. I also found another person selling a trailer that had been approached by same email/person. Now that I see it is not "Will Banks" but this Paula Willbanks at 101 E. Cardinal St..the email makes sense now. I am glad I saw this post and while I am sorry you had to suffer the wrath of this Paula, please know that your complain has kept me and who knows how many others from doing business with this thief!
    Thank you Renee!

seller suspension without a reason

Ebay - www.ebay.com

I was suspended from eBay for selling what they called "an unauthorized copy" of DVD's. The DVD's I was selling were completely authorized and legal from USA studios. This was stated in the auctions several times. I have a licensed business and acquire my inventory from USA authorized distributors.

I contacted eBay about ten times about this issue prior to them suspending me. They continuously disregarded my pleas for help and clarification. Instead they sent me patronizing automatic replies about reading their FAQ's (which I had already read and fully understood). They simply refused to address my specific complaints. I begged them to tell me what I had to do to sell my items without them being removed and not be suspended. I implored them to allow me to prove the legal status of these authorized DVD's. I asked them to allow me to send references and receipts from authorized movie studio distributors. Again, to no avail. There was literally nothing I could do to contact anybody and receive a response about what was happening to me. And it all culminated with them suspending me after being a seller for only 3 weeks with a 100% positive review record.

I contacted them via email, via their online forms, via their live help services. Live help attendants told me they had no authority to discuss the issue. Email and online forms responses were just ways to send me automatic cut and paste messages without addressing my specific problem. They don't provide a phone number or physical address or any means by which informed human interaction can occur.

    This may be too late to help this guy as this was posted a year and a half ago but I suggest suing Ebay. They damaged his business. he had 100 percent feedback rating which clearly shows they were in good standing with their customers. eBay is very quick to cut off sellers without warning. and what happened to this guy happens everyday to many, many others. eBay flagrantly does whatever it feels like, they have rules against the stupidest of things. I use to have many items for sale that had very similar descriptions. I used the same description for all and it in was a single word used to describe how I examined each item for flaws. This upset a buyer who used that same word in his alerts for items totally unrelated and he wrote me demanding I stop using that word. Ummm, ever hear of the first amendment? Who is he to demand, that I stop using a word that is not profane and does apply to what I was selling even if it wasnt an item he was interested in. Ebay suspended me anyhow. I took them to court in MY hometown. Yes, I know they claim that any disputes must be settled in their area of California. BULL! You can sue anybody anywhere you like. If you live in New York and eBay damaged your business you CAN sue them in New York and they will need to pay an attorney licensed in New York to come to court and defend them. That costs them even more as they must pay another attorney not their own. They can of course get to court and rattle their sabre and say "see our user agreement says all case must be settled in California" Which a judge may or may not agree with, usually the latter. Judges dont like attorneys telling them have no jurisdiction. My defense to their claim was that MY business was in New York and this is where I was damaged. The judge agreed and I went on to win my case. ( In David vs. Goliath, David usually always wins! ) If enough people make eBay pay then it will become too costly for eBay to continue to screw sellers without justification. Put the pressure on. Sue the bast... !

    There is a forum I found on the internet that is free, and helps with Ebay, PayPal, business and the law. Just post any question, the experts will answer it if it has not already been answered!

    The forum has a lot of expert advice on it. http://www.modeeworld.com/forums I found advice there about how to avoid EBAY suspensions, get past PayPal limitations, also lots of detailed help on creating your own business, getting past trademark violations, VERO and lots more. Plus general advice on how best to sell on EBAY, what sells the best, how to get the best price for your product, really everything related to EBAY and internet business.

    Also advice about how EBAY really works and how PayPal really works. The inside scoop.

    Beautiful forum. I was made a moderator of the forum and I love it!

    I don't think ebay deserves our business or that we should have to beg and plead for them to let us back on. There is a new auction site BOOCOO.COM that suppose to be Ebays competition in the near future. They are easy to sign up with and don't all those personal questions and its just like ebay. Don't let ebay take your happiness. Move on to something better and SPREAD THE WORD. Tell everybody. Thats the only way it will take off. Go to other forums with other suspended ebayers and tell them about BOOCOO.COM It may be a little slow now but list things on there people will want and TELL PEOPLE ABOUT IT!!! This is just the beginning people lets work together!

    DownwithEbay Jul 04, 2011

    I have used Ebay since 1996 without much difficulty, that is 2010. I had a number of old antique computer game systems to sell. Most of the sales went as I expected but with one. Some guy in Miami purchased a drive that was working perfectly when I sent it to him. After receiving it, he claims it is not working and filed a complaint with Ebay. Ebay refused to here my side and advised me to settle with the buyer. I lost money and the guy got a working antique drive for practically nothing. In another case, I send an item to an individual in Australia. He claimed that he did not receive the item. An investigation found that the USPS had delivered the item and that the individual signed for the item at the Australian Post Office. PayPal validated this information and, of course found in my favor. Then the individual leaves me negative feedback, still saying that he did not receive the item. Ebay refused to remove the feedback, even though they knew their company owned PayPal found in my favor.

    Ebay is an evil corporation plus 10. It does offer buyer protections but nothing for sellers. If people stopped selling on Ebay, how long would they last. That, and their rediculously high fees along with being forced to use the PayPal payment system ends up costing more to sell an item than the trouble it is to list it. Ebay SUCKS!

unfounded suspension

I have been an active ebay member since 2004. I have a 100% rating and until recently have had no real problems with ebay. A couple of months ago I tried signing into my account only to be notified my password was incorrect. I immediately went to my email and saw a new message from ebay explaining they had changed my account password for security reasons...that someone had made multiple unsuccessful attempts to get into my account. Within a month, this same thing happened. I sent an email to ebay about this issue because it concerned me and never received a response. My husband made a purchase on Oct.22,2007 and paid for the product immediately. Two days later when we tried to login for information regarding the shipment of our purchase we were locked out of our account and told we were suspended because we were believed to be a previously suspended member who was fraudulent. I emailed them right away angry and concerned because there is no reason for the link. We have never been involved in fraudulent activity, nor have we ever had another ebay account. In the meantime, it is now Nov.2,2007 and have still not received our product and since we are locked out of our account we cannot contact the seller. Ebay has FINALLY responded to our email concerning these issues and they did not address my concerns for what purpose they believe me to be linked to this previously suspended user or if my information is being used by someone else illegally. The only response I was given was to fax over a copy of my state id card, credit card statement with name and address information, a utility bill also with identifying information and some sort of legal paper to sign stating that I will not be involved in fraudulent activity on ebay. This is crap that for no reason at all, no reason they can give me they suspend me, they don't answer my concerns about whether someone may be using my identity or what makes them believe I am affiliated with this previously suspended user, and now I have to jump through hoops to prove myself to them. For what? For them to use poor judgment with my personal information, leaking it out to who knows... just to have this happen again!? And as I said, here I said still not having received my ordered and paid for product and nothing that I can do to resolve the issue. Pissed off isn't even the word. I WILL be canceling my account with ebay and I WILL be sending a letter of complaint to ebay... Even though I know it will fall on deaf ears.

    I had the same thing happen to me. However, I hadn't used the account for some time, but received an e-mail stating that someone had tried to sign on to my account. I didn't click into the link on the e-mail because I wasn't sure if it was a phishing e-mail. I went to E-Bay directly and found that I couldn't get into my account. Being that I had not used the account, I asked that they close my account because I had been the victim of identity fraud and had found that my paypal account was also in jeopardy. I canceled that as well. I still receive e-mails from e-bay and from e-bay shoppers stating that they have purchased and paid for items from me that I have not sent. Unfortunately, I have not had anything on e-bay and ebay won't release information about who is using my account and what payment process they are going through to obtain the money's that people are apparently sending to me, that I have no knowledge of. E bay had sent me an e-mail after I had asked that they cancel my account and told me that they had to leave it active for 30 days. After 30 days, they told me the account was closed, but apparently they did not close the account. Having same problems with paypal and once you close an account with either of these companies, it appears you cannot open another with a different e-mail address (unless of course you are a thief). It's a very sad situation and world that we live in. But it appears if the people that originate these scams put as much time into actually making an honest living, they'd be wealthy and there would be a whole lot less fraud going on.

    eBay suspended me months back. After several months of contacting them and trying to appeal, they sent me a message that my appeal was denied and the suspension is indefinite.

    I have a family to support and this made half of the income. Not only does eBay not care about the sellers anymore, they purposely promote fraud for buyers as well. Absolute disgust.

    This is why many people who have been kicked off are going stealth I myself have contacted Auction Essistance to help me get back on and make back the income that eBay purposely took away. Do not let eBay win or destroy your family.

unable to contact anyone

I bid on a vehicle and was the highest bidder without reaching its reserve. After the auction as I thought closed, I was contacted by the seller of this item directly to my email address which I did not provide but as he contacted me after my bid offer and using what looked like standard ebay header mails, i assumed that it was legitimate. I had already made checks into the vehicle status etc which appeared to be again legitimate. The emails I received appeared the same as many more I'd received for previous transactions through ebay. Furthermore the seller said he was doing the transaction through the safeharbor facility on ebay. Safeharbor is their so called security and trust section. All of the transaction emails were on what looked like standard ebay header and following satisfactory answers being received through this mechanism, I proceeded with the purchase at a cost of £ 8000. I'm now told by ebays online help that this item was blocked from sale as a result of suspected fraud and that I should have received an email at 'my messages' folder on ebay saying this as I had bid for the item. This did not happen and furthermore I did not give the seller my email address so I can only conclude that despite ebay assurances regarding the safety of their site, it is not a secure site. I am now fraudulently down £ 8000 due to ebay neglect and have been unable to make a complaint so far through the online facility. Online is the only option available as no telephone contact is permitted. I would appreciate any help that's out there

    As much as it pains me to say this, the fact you lost 8000 pounds isnt ebay's fault. eBay sends messages all the time about this scam. A red flag should have gone up when you got an e mail after you hadnt provided the seller with your email address. A second red flag should have gone up when the email said the sale was thru ebay safe harbor. Safe harbor has nothing to do with making transactions. eBay suggests when getting these 'second chance" offers ALWAYS verify that the second chance off is shown in your my ebay page under items not won AND look for an ebay message that starts with your name. You didnt do this and that is why your out 8000 pounds. This problem is so big that eBay needs to do something about it. They have a responsibility to do something about it. messages about the scams arent enough. They need to have each and every buyer acknowledge that they understand second chance offers can ONLY be made on the MY eBay page. and it should be very obvious on the My eBay page, not hidden in the "items not Won" page. Have a Second Chance category with an alert.

useless helpdesk

I was a user of ebay. I thought its a good web portal or online shopping. I was in the process of purchasing a mobile phone and a mouse. The payment has been made amounting to Rs 13,500/-. In the meantime my account was blocked on some flimsy ground. The seller even after acknowledging that he ad received payment gave an unpaid strike against me thinking that as i was suspended i cant do anything. I am trying to reach helpdesk but they are not responding. I think nobody is reading my email and i am getting an automated reply every time i tried to reach them. I think it is useless now as there is no phone number listed for solving my prob on there website. So ebay is good as long as u dont landup in a problem. The moment u r in trouble even on flimsy ground. there is no one whom u can ask for help.

    I fully agree with the complaints. Reason is not far to see. Most often, as they say, if it is too good to be true, it probably is ! Transactions are painful. Products are faulty and subsequent transactions to redress adds to the pain. Risky and not worth the trouble to buy from eBay.

    Having said that, my best experience was on Amazon where the customer service is excellent. But then it is also a lot less risky buying a book than, say a flash drive mp3 player as I foolishly did.

    Bottom line, stay away at any rate from electronics, mobile phones, computers and the like.

ebay does not appreciate their buyers

Ebay
http://www.ebay.com

I want to make the public aware of my experience with an ebay seller which goes by the name augleo74. I bought three products from the user. All a few days apart. One product took longer to be received than others. On the feedback I mentioned that the shipment was slow. The seller then posted a sarcastic comment in regards to my feedback. Then on the other products provided defamatory feedback unrelated to the items or issue at hand. A request to remove the feedback due to the user is retaliating against the one negative remark was sent to Ebay who stated they would not remove the feedback. Ebay does not care about the buyers experience and obviously not aware that without buyers their company wouldn't be active. They allow insulting comments to defile your feedback page and there only response is to provide a feedback to the comment received. NO ONE should have to fear posting THEIR experience with a seller in FEAR of retaliation!!! That is PROMOTING misleading information to the public! That person is not the only seller Ebay allows to terrorize customers treasure_in_florida, beeatchook, bookmarkthispage are just to name a few.

Here are some of the negative remarks.

    I bought a violin case on e-bay. You can check my FB to find the seller. The case arrived and I quickly opened it, looked at it, closed it and left positive FB. 2 days later I opened the case to put my violin in it, and it selled of cat pee. It came from up north, to humid Florida where the stench blossomed. I filed a dispute when the seller refused to answer ANY e-mails. The seller, herself, made a claim of it. EBAY'S DECISION WAS THAT CAT PISS IN A VIOLIN CASE DOES NOT DEVALUE THE ITEM!

    I paid $52.00 for what can only be used as a kitty litter pan now (but I have no cats). So much for e-bay protecting their buyers, as their so-called recent 'enhancements' proclaim.

    If you do business on e-bay, you better figure out who this seller who sold me a cat pee violin case and avoid her items. Also, keep in mind that cat pee on a seller's items is just fine with ebay!

ebay company fraud

eBay charges seller fees when an item is listed. However they do not list the item for the entire time purchased. For example: I listed a 5 day auction and the listing was not available for view by buyers for over 10 hours. Now, I paid $3.65 for the 5 day listing which calculates out to 3 cents/hour. This means I was defrauded 30 cents. Doesn't seem like a lot but magnified over the many thousands of sellers it's no wonder eBay is a multi-billion dollar industry simply for providing computer servers and software to manage auctions. No other company has made this volumn of profit in the time the company has existed. They over charge for seller fees and do not display seller items for the length of time purchased. This has happened with each of the several auctions I have posted.

    eBay is price gouging. The government was sure after Microsoft for Anti-Trust, why can't they go after eBay? At least Microsoft provided honest products, and revolutionized the computer industry. eBay does nothing, and demands too much money with little concern for their sellers. I can understand .50 per listing, but not several dollars, and several dollars more if you want a reserve price. But, they can over charge because they have no real competition. I think they need to be investigated for price gouging.

    Ebay Company is a total scam. It's a multi-billion dollar company that is allowed to blatantly scam their sellers and buyers on a daily basis. The Government needs to start cracking down on eBay and hopefully put them out of business. THEY NEED TO BE REGULATED! I do not believe years ago that they started out this way, but have since become the biggest Internet scam of all. Creating fictitious buyers and sellers. Scamming buyers and sellers out of thousands of dollars on a daily basis, Clark Howard in Atlanta, Georgia has covered this topic extensively. I used to think eBay was the bomb. Now, I now can only hope that the US Government will step in and stop this completely unethical company and shut them down completely. They are the worst offenders on the Internet. They have been stealing from sellers for quite some time and many Power Sellers have ended their eBay sales for good. They have stolen millions of dollars by their own self created scams. They have ripped me off many times and I am just a hobby seller. I don’t make a living off of this and they have ripped me off over and over. I pay good money to list items that they never run, they create fictitious characters that bid then don’t pay, thus eBay gets their listing fees and the percent of the sale. The seller gets screwed. Do they ever resolve this or pay the seller back? Absolutely not! They are scam artists that need Government regulation SOON! Ebay, you’re done!

    Ebay is turning to the biggest peice of Crap. As a seller I have sold on their site since 2002. I have seen charges change like the seasons. What use to be 2.00 now cost 6.00 or more. When I list something I sometimes do not see it on their site for up to 12 hrs in some cases. That I think is what is called Fraud I signed up for 7 Days I got 6.5 Days. As a Seller You can not leave Neg. Feedback, They tell you they will pull your listing if you are charging too much for shipping A bayonet costs about 9 to 10 Dollas to send they pulled it. Customer service sucks they would not know how to fix an issue if it was in teir face. Fees are outrages. Where can I go to Sell my stuff and make my bills I got Laid off last Nov. Now I use to pay bills now I give it to ebay. I am going to go some where else with a computer science degree I think I can figure it out. Craig's List, Or Maybe I'll call it sh**ebayersalike. What are they going to do sue me They are so busy changing things on their site they wouldn't even notice. Oh I have to add this on the 20th of Oct. you thr Buyer and myself the Seller will NO longer be able to pay with a Check, Money order, The only way you can pay is through Paypal Gee who own Paypal. That is a triple Whammy for me I get charged to list, I get charged when it sells, and now I get Charged when they pay with Paypal THE ONLY way to pay after Oct.20 20% of my buyers pay with CK, MO, OR ??? As a Buyer you you only get hit twice if you decide too buy at all My prices are going down my customer base is running the other way and I'm standing here with my D*** in my hand. Good luck out there we are getting screwed. Any one have an Idea n where you can sell and not get gauged???

no protection for buyers!

Last month I did a online transaction(bidding) for an item(mobile,
Ebay Item no: [protected]) on a site called www.ebay.in. I won the bid and
was supposed to pay Rs.16799/- for the item to the
seller([protected]@yahoo.com).

I promptly dropped the cheque for the required amount in next couple of days.


The seller once he got the money into his account, has refused to send me the
item inspite of my repeated mails and efforts to convince him.
With no other alternative left i desperately tried to contact the Ebay officials.

Every time i wrote to them i got a emphatic mail saying that there are a set of rules and that they can only escalate the claim...only after stipulated time... and above all they didn't even verify the seller details and werent able to trace him at all... and then they talk of rules and procedures.

Their customer support and security practices are so pathetic that they don't even have a proper mechanism to verify the seller details. On top they claim that they cannot reveal the details fo the seller to the buyer!!! The buyer has to bear the brunt of all these shabby stuff.

The guy who cheated me must be enjoying all this... it's really shame that Ebay encourages ppl to CHEAT...

Please never buy anything at EBAY!!!

    EBAY AND PAYPAL ARE NOT THERE TO HELP ANYBODY BUT THEMSELVES MAKE GOOD MONEY DISHONESTLY.
