Oh, I have no doubt I am better off, as are his 7 children. Problem is, he is not better off, but might not recognize this until its too late. Poor dear.
His girlfriend has mistaken him for a prize, but I guess I did too.

Re: The Great Ebay Thread.

Cheap OP Airman... good color...

http://cgi.cafr.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dl … 643wt_1135


BUT, deep in the description, it says : The current lenses are prescription but can easily be replaced with non-prescription lenses.

I think it's fairly misleading not to say it very clearly higher in the description or in the title.

PLUS, I don't know about «excellent condition»... the close-up pictures looks pretty ugly..

I'm selling it, and yes, ask anyone.

As for the suit.. it's black and the fabric is cheaper, but the cut looks good to me.

Re: The Great Ebay Thread.

Toutbroun...good luck with your reserving the right not to ship to certain countries. I sold something once and stipulated through eBay's own listing forms that I only shipped to North America and Europe. The winning bidder was in China. I cancelled the transaction. He reported me to eBay...and he won the challenge even though eBay gave me the option not to sell to that country! Because it was a cheap item I completed the deal, he received it safely (his postage costs via registered mail were higher than the item price) and he left me positive feedback. I repeatedly complained to eBay for their actions and never heard a thing. Hopefully your winner won't be in a problem country and if they are and you cancel the deal, hopefully they won't challenge you. Good luck with the sale and the transaction however.

Ebay is notoriously known for siding with the buyers no matter what, they only want their cuts and want to screw the sellers

What would've happened if you did not sell and send him? What can they do?

Re: The Great Ebay Thread.

BTW Paypal is very dangerous for the sellers... you can get really ripped off. It's completely biased towards the buyer. You can lose everything. NEVER send something without registered mail, and even if you do, you can get scre*ed.

An acquaintance of mine of long-time good-standing on eBay had his account cancelled by eBay because of an issue. He had to create a new eBay account under a new eBay user name using his wife's name and email address. Not the end of the world except that you lose your feedback totals and given the huge number of frauds on eBay, people might be wary to buy from you/sell to you if your feedback is 0 or 1.

You are correct that the power lies with the buyer on eBay and Paypal. Fortunately, I've had only a couple of problems and only one of them serious - and it was entirely my own fault through my own stupidity.

One of the worst frauds I've heard of on eBay regards selling nice watches. You ship your nice watch with all its paperwork and original box via registered post. The buyer receives it, switches the watch for a cheap replica and then emails you and eBay claiming that you sold him a fake. eBay side with the buyer and instruct the buyer to return the watch to you and they process a refund. You receive back a fake watch!  Yes, you can photograph the watch from every angle before you ship it but ultimately it comes down to the buyer's word against the seller's word...and eBay/Paypal pretty much always go with the buyer.

Re: The Great Ebay Thread.

Never rely on Paypal in a dispute, they are USELESS!!

On another note my father bought an item the other day, although the seller posted Worldwide there was no shipping cost to my fathers location.  My father sent the seller (a big company) about 8 messages requesting total inc shipping so he could pay for the damn thing!  The seller did not reply and then eBay sent my father reminders etc that he had to pay.  My father told eBay he had sent the seller a request for total many times through eBays messaging system, eBay ignored this correspondence and gave my father 1 Strike (believe if you get 3 you are kicked off)

Nothing he could do!  Too much of Ebay is automated now and the instant checkout link to Paypal can cause headaches too

Re: The Great Ebay Thread.

@welshboy78 : Hi,if i good remembar Ebay rules,if the seller in some times,i think in a week,don't send the invoice,the buyer CAN do not buy the item.Write MOOOORE mail to Ebay,to explane this,or call your local Ebay.The firsts answear/mail from Ebay,are automatic,and send by PC,there isn't a real person.Best regards

I've cancelled a transaction before because the buyer was outside of the area I listed and I just didn't want to take a risk so I told them that the item was damaged and couldn't go through with the transaction.

It's poor to have to lie like that (and keep the item for a few months before relisting it) because it should be up to the seller to determine where you're prepared to ship your item but I figured that this way was my best option and I would certainly do it again if I had too.

Of course nobody wants to send off their stuff off and then get ripped off. I mean look at your tie toutbrun – imagine if some lowlife bought it, went to the trouble of replacing it with a Magnoli or something and claimed it was a fake.

It already breaks my heart to sell it and know that I'll never find it again... if I lost both the tie and the money, I don't know what I would do. And obviously you can't go to court with someone in China...

Tout, it's only a tie! If it means that much to you don't sell it, though obviously you'd then be missing out on the huge profit you hope to make.

Sadly, these are the dilemas you have to face.

Not Bond but I've put up a set of brand new and unworn Omega stainless steel cufflinks. I'm pretty sure these are discontinued now.

And a non-Bond Tom Ford tie. Again, brand new and unworn.
