That is a stock photo for sure.  Deserves a neg if I ever saw one.  Complete misrepresentation of the item.  The description says nothing about the item itself, just a blurb about his comics.  :?

What the hell is going on inside of some of these seller's heads?

The edges were cut off of the picture for a reason.

This sort of shady seller thinks he's being clever.  He thinks he's smarter than you.

And what a surprise... after opening up a dispute with Ebay I finally get a response:
-------------
Hello

I am very sorry I had no idea you had not received your item yet. I just found out it was returned to my old address almost a week ago because I used to much bubble wrap for packing which miscalulated the weight of the item. I will overnight this item to you today thank you very much for your patience and I am very sorry I thought you'd received your item a long time ago.

- ripmichaeljackson
------------

I really hate to ask for a refund, since the price was right for the item. Then again, with all this bullshit about item condition from her sales, I'll wait until I actually receive the item before rendering a final verdict [At least she took actual pictures of the item, instead of the stock photos she used to sell Gnat's crap]

Not that I'd be tempted to ask for a photograph of the returned package, but I love the concept of too /much/ bubblewrap. Doesn't happen very often on eBay, that.
Surprised that ended up back with them - is this standard practice in the US rather than raising a "postage due" charge with the recipient?

Good luck and fingers crossed.

Michael Jackson is trying to string me along.
I only have a short time left before lodging a complain is no longer possible and seller SAYS he has shipped a replacement item.

Based on some posts above that might take another 2 months.
I think its time to Neg Mr Jackson and move on with a loss.

BTW: Form Critic: There is no way this item is the one pictured.
Cut off corners dont explain the rest of that front cover being so pathetic.

The more I read of this guy, the more it sounds like he knows what he's doing and he's into scamming and screwing buyers. From this point on, anyone who falls foul of this guy knows what's coming to them. For those already done by him, time to hit the credit cards and chargeback.

If you do ever get screwed over on eBay, ALWAYS chargeback on your credit card. Never leave it up to eBay or PayPal. Two reasons; 1) You have certainty of outcome. Your money is returned to you instantly (well, within about 10 days). 2) Not only does the seller loose the money he got from you, but PayPal levy all their fees upon him for having to deal with the chargeback. In the UK that's £7, so I'd imagine in the US a seller would lose an extra $10 or so.

What I love is the idea that the item was returned because she used too much packing tape.

If she said "overnight," then wait over night and then take further action.

- decided to keep things if they don't get the price they want
- re-listed items that got a low price without telling the Buyer
- or simply don't send items and say they did.



Yeah ... I won some of his stuff.  One lot he claimed to have sent but it never arrived - could be valid as it coincided with a major earthquake here.  The other few lots he just decided not to send.  He emailed me to tell me his wife lost a close family relative about this time and aparently my items were all packaged and sitting in her work.  Tough times and he did refund me but in the end I decided to neg him as I couldn't figure why he couldn't post the items if they were already packaged.  Oh, and the fact he relisted an item I won for 99p and sold it for about $25 didn't help his case.

The guy is as dishonest as they come. Stay well away. We should compile and run a list of dishonest sellers.

Maybe we could name the thread "SHADY DEALERS"

I meant just a list of eBay sellers, so buyers could check before parting with cash, rather than having to trawl through the history of Acaeum, or even just a whole thread.

You make a good point.
Not to mention that some threads go the way of archiving after making 100 pages.

On the flip side, eBay/PayPal should have to disclose the number of claims for 'lost postage/items no received' that a buyer makes within a year. I'd be willing to bet that some buyers make far more claims for 'items lost in the post' than others, and displaying this information would allow sellers to decide whether or not to sell to an individual in order to avoid theft.

If a buyer has a local post man who steals their mail regularly, a seller shouldn't be punished for selling to them, especially when the buyer knows this and is being deceitful in buying form them in the first place.

Got the PoTVQ today.

34 Pages (as described... I should have read the description... that should have been a huge flag...).

Seller has agreed to refund my shipping costs.

However I am missing DM map Level #2. So I'm going to ask for a partial refund, and just frankenstein it later...

What is your basis for asking for a partial refund?  Received item as described but ...

ripmichaeljackson  Has been negged and DSR's have been hit.

Seller offered to send another item (And said they did) to make up for the first one being so trashed, but after several weeks I gave up.

It is now several weeks after the auction ended, so I could not wait any longer.
The feedback had to be posted to protect the next bidder.

discodadda hit him again right after I did.
DSRs are now really low and feedback score is below 96.5%
