Did anybody catch the feedback in which Mr. Cougie ADMITS that he is a con-man????

Check out the feedback dispute between Cougar and asylum-books-and-games:

----------------
ASYLUM LEFT NEGATIVE FEEDBACK THAT SAID:
"Wants cheapest postal service, then expects the best, expedited delivery! Avoid!"

COUGARRINARD REPLIED:
"aksed for standard PO parcel, dont take a month to arrive CON MAN, now 48 nFB's?"
-----------------

Well, cougar, you've got 55...so what does that make you?

This guy is such a freaking moron (in my humble opinion, of course) I am almost bewildered. I am hoping he gets enough NEGATIVES so that he loses his damn TITANIUM PLATED, GOLD-RIMMED or whatever the hell it is powerseller status. It would be nice to get him off eBay so I can quit hearing about his ludicrous behavior.

Report him. I can't empahsize that enough.

Report it every time he interferes in an auction ... which is daily.

Report any of his listings that bend or break eBay's listing guidelines.

Report every fake transaction where he buys feedback.

It might never work, but constant reporting is the only hope there is of ending the Cougar menace. Vigilante action is great fun and all, but it's temporary at best.

Typically takes the form of selling non-existent or worthless products that don't actually have to be shipped (usually cost 1 cent, or are advertised as such).  Something along the lines of "Secrets to Ebay!", which is a digital file that can be emailed, sold to as many buyers as wished for 1 cent each.  The purpose isn't to distribute a product, merely a vehicle so all the parties can leave themselves glowing positive feedback.Illegal under Ebay rules...

ahhhhhh i see now. dont feel quite so thick anymore :)

smarmy1,

That is eBay's standard email that is automatically sent out when you send them a report of this nature. I got the same thing also.

We can only hope the Coug did not get prior approval before bidding on this auction.  From the auction listing
NO bids from other countries accepted at this time without prior email approval




Wouldn't that be sweet. :) Come on second-chance!

It's an auctioning service, not an individual, they are usually pretty strict on their terms.  I would be surprised if they end up selling it to Cougie...

I have alerted the seller that Cougie apparently still thinks the U.S. is a British colony, and that he will also ask to run his M-Bag scam. I also requested that the seller report Diamond Dave for violation of the unwanted-bidding policy.

Since the auction listing does give him a way to bid if he emails for permission first, I did not send an email to Ebay customer service. Otherwise, if this had been another strictly 'US only' auction, I was ready to reword and resend.  Just out of curiousity, how many times have you guys reported him to Ebay for violations?

I have not checked in to it, but is it possible to speak to customer service reps directly or is everything mediated via email?  It's fairly easy to not respond to an emailed complaint but much more difficult to ignore someone on the telelphone.  The process of escalation is great ... "Ok.  Thanks for your assistance, but may I speak to your supervisor?" has worked wonders for me.  :wink:

I've done eBay's "live help" a couple of times. It's basically just trading instant messages with an eBay customer-service person (in theory, anyway; the person could be a contract employee in India or Kenya, for all I know).

I didn't find it particularly helpful, as most of the responses I got directed me to eBay help pages that I already know of. But they were friendly enough, and it felt good to vent.   :)

I mailed this muppet earlier in the week to ask what the TOTAL price would be for an item I liked the look of. As it was 99p (P&P undisclosed etc) I thought I would see what he would charge.

Clearly I have no intention of bidding or buying, but 5 days later and still no reply. Do you think thats so he isn't committed to a price and can charge what he likes at the end??  :roll:

The standard Cougarturd reply if you bombard him with a few more emails asking why he hasnt replied to your question about P&P will be -
check your spam filter, I have already replied to this email!!
.
This is the Cturds way of avoiding the sticky and auction interest ending question of his over the top P&P :roll: .

The Fringe Dweller returns to the shadows vowing to personally see to the demise of the Cturd and his five fingered discounts.

I was actually wondering the same, is including photo copies of original material without permission reportable?



I reported it in any event as well just in case.

I am absolutely flabbergasted. Today, I sent eBay UK an email complaining that cougar bid on my auction, despite being warned that I only accepted "US" bidders - and stipulated the same in my auction terms.......

and they sent ME a warning, telling me that if I did it again, I could be suspended!!!!!!!!!

Customer service at its best. Who's he paying off at eBay????

That just sounds bizarre. Truly. Have you checked the message headers? Are they for-sure from eBay's servers? I would not put it past Cougar to be a big enough dickhead to generate some fake emails ...

The simplest solution is just to block him, of course. That makes it impossible for him to place a bid, thus ending any further discussion on the matter.

No, the email was truly from eBay.

I even sent a reply back...asking them why he is right for bidding on a US only auction and I am WRONG for complaining that he didn't honor the auction terms and like a true bully BID ANYWAY!

Let's see what they say.
