Pathetic....absolutely pathetic.  I'd rather pay Creep $50 for a SW X1 than deal with the asshat that did that.



Reminds me of a roommate I had at college.  He started buying a lot of rare baseball cards with his credit card and charged it up several thousand dollars.  When he decided he didnt want to pay the bill, he staged a break-in and called campus police to report it.  Funny thing is, no one knew he had the cards besides me, they were hidden in a false bottom of a wooden box, and nothing else was stolen.  The police never found any finger prints or any evidence that the lock was picked or that the door was forced.  Pretty obvious what went down.  He called his credit card company and reported the theft.  He didnt have to pay a thing.  Rotten bastard.  :evil:

Well, I just received the Thieves Guild module and it is incomplete. If the seller doesn't have the missing pages and/or won't take it back, and refund ALL of my money, he gets a neg. And I will certainly buy up every auction he posts in the future. I am just about done with moronic sellers who can't even check contents.

If I get a negative out of it, big deal. I mostly buy, and I prefer to sell off eBay when I sell at all. If it gets too bad, I'll create another account.

What pages are missing, since TG had the habit of skipping around pages throughout its books (since the loose leafs go in a binder) and even later included stickers to correct page numbers.

erm, that doesn't exactly leave much, does it? :?

And the cover ain't worth $550 by itself, like Pharaoh... ^^



Good luck, Frank! Have you pointed the seller over to this thread for PR purposes (if they have other RPG stuff)?

Not yet, I'm waiting to see what she wants to do. She sent an e-mail back asking what was missing.

I'm just highly aggravated at these sellers who don't even check their shit. I expect either the remaining pages, which I am sure she doesn't have, or a full refund including shipping.

I've already decided that if it doesn't get sorted to my satisfaction, I'll use my account to go on a crusade against the seller, then create a new one. I'm getting bored with this one anyways.

This is all on top of the $6 shipping charge for fukin media mail. I like to think I am fairly reasonable, but I just can't take the idiot sellers anymore. Is it too much to ask that someone check an item to see if it is complete? I was so happy at first, I really wanted this mod, but there are days lately that make me want to chuck the whole lot and collect matchbooks.

so what is this media mail thing? being in the UK i have no idea at all what it is. a slower cheaper form of post?



and yes, i ahve had many instances of incomplete items, some more alarming than others. if its important now, i try and ask, time permitting.



but just remember if you chuck the whole lot, chuck them in this direction :D



one of my main-beefs with sellers on ebay is when they say "they think it is complete" or "i am not sure if it is complete"...  8O



why cant they just feckin check??!! surely its not THAT hard is it? is it?

The great thing about buying large lots (or even heavy books) between U.S. sellers is Media Mail.  It kicks ass.  The rates for books (and other media such as DVDs, CDs, software, Videos, etc) is:



Media Mail Rates



Weight

not over

       Rate

1         $1.42

6         3.52

67         21.94

68         22.24

69         22.54

70         22.84



That's right - 70 lbs of books cost just $22.84 to ship!  It takes a little longer (somewhere between 4-12 business days), but it is still very reliable.  As someone who has bought and sold many large lots, I can honestly say that everything has arrived safely.

Our postal system is much like out tax system - a miasma of confusion and obscurity. I like to think that I have successfully navigated it's waters by this point. There are so many options - Priority, Flat rate boxes, flat rate envelopes, Express, Global Express, Global Priority (Variable and flat rate - small and large envelope), Parcel, Media Mail, International Air Parcel & Economy Parcel (can be insured - long customs form), International Letter Post & Economy letter Post (can't be insured, let than 4 lbs, less than 36" H/D/W short customs form), delivery confirmation, signature confirmation, insurance, certified, registered, return receipt, M-Bag (Air & Economy).



If you do your homework, you can find obscure ones that hardly anyone knows about - like Bound Printed Matter. This is, essentially, Media mail with a variable rate based on zip code. No one even knows about it, but Media is so cheap that it really doen't pay to even investigate it's rate chart.

Hence why I startred this thread. How about "Mr. I will combine shipping charges ( shaved $.85 off) ..and then charge $12.00 for media mail" on the two below  :evil: . I might be wrong it might weigh 30+ pounds  :? . And you just know they have not left feedback yet  :x . I got a 682 feedback I would hate to lose. I think I need to create a new ID as well and use one for buying and one for selling.

The gamelords stuff is numbered in terms of chapters to where all of the various products are to be put together in a binder. The table of contents in that item is useless to the seller and very confusing to even someone who has a bunch of them (me :oops: ). Needless to say, Gamelords gets an F for organization as it was a disaster.



PM for you, frank!

Hey! I thought this was about feedback, and not shipping charges...but then again, I would LOVE to leave negative feedback for idiotic shipping charges.



Anyway, I'm very patient with sellers, as I try to contact them at least twice before giving up and leaving a neg. I've only had one problem (that was resolved) with a slow shipment, as I didn't contact the seller like he said in his auction.



As a seller (I don't sell much, just duplicates or copies I've upgraded from), I always contact the buyer to let them know when I ship their item.



As an aside, I got a real good sell with an earlier Dragon mag, and I put insurance on it at my expense to make sure no one got burned.

It was started for a reason that never took off but that is all right. I was looking to see eveyones thought on what an accepatable negatve feedback rating for a seller is. I am thinking I ever lost that as I went on and on writing the message. The shipping charges in this case I thought qualified because they offered to combine and then that action was to take what amounted to 5% off their shipping charges. Please note that I have not left them a negative, only ever left one in all my years on eBay. I just see more and more sellers misrepresenting items, using shipping and handling to make money the item's selling price did not and using negative feedback as a veiled threat when the transaction sucks.

I usually take this case by case. If they have something that I want yet have a terrible rating...I will insist on escrow or use something I can charge back in the worst case scenerio. I might even use a secondary ebay ID in case I need to add to their terrible feedback rating.



Sometimes a person can have several negs for nonBidding but nothing for selling. If they are selling something I want, I will take that into consideration as they have never dicked a buyer.

As a general rule of thumb that I adhere to (and don't necessarily encourage others to do, just what I do as a CYA) don't be the first to leave feedback. Whether the buyer or seller, I simply won't be the one to leave feedback first. I got burned by one person who disregarded my payment instructions and sent an out of state personal check to pay for the auction (which I accepted anyway since I didn't want to be difficult). I had to wait for it to clear (which I informed them of) then shipped the auction out to them- using the cheapest method possible (which he paid for- parcel post) across the country. It took about a week or so for the package to reach the buyer, and I did everything I could around the system to find out the status of the package since they didn't want delivery confirmation either (since this experience, I tack on delivery confirmation on everything I sell). I found the item for the buyer in the mail, and went above and beyond the call of duty for them, and they still left me neutral feedback, for a 'long transaction'.

So yeah, long story short (too late), I won't leave feedback anymore unless I know for certain the buyer/seller on the other end is happy or not via either an email (which I openly encourage) or their feedback. If they aren't happy, I'm willing to go the extra mile to set things right if at all possible.
