Yes, pretty sure I saw that post... I think the Grolm deleted his classified post around the time he chose to stiff Aia.  Sad.


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

yes, I remember seeing that too.

why not just start the bidding at the lowest price he'd be happy to sell for or just stick a reserve on it? I know ea of those costs more than a .99cent auction, but it would easily avoid a situation like this. Seems very unfair to Aia.

Lets set aside my negative experience...  At the end of the day i dint lose any money, the real point here is that i absolutely want to mark this seller as a shady dealer for future and less prepared buyers... What pisses me off is that ebay.de will likely cancel my neg and he will look like as a perfect seller after the "resolution center" bulls***t...  This is the most annoying part of the event!
What could i do more than what i tried so far??

Just got a note from eBay about this seller:

** eBay auction listing blocked by The Acaeum.  Seller is on our blacklist **

Look familiar? Supposedly, their account was "accessed by a third party" and may have been used for nefarious purposes. I guess that is what they call it when you attempt to pull a scam.............

I agree with your assessment regarding this EBay Seller.  Buyers beware.

I have no words.  Despite the odds, did it at least arrive unscathed?

Sometimes you just can't seem to find the right box laying around the house...  Most of us will go find one....  Unreal!

I'm remembering this did happen to me twice, years back, also with a board game and also on a Basic Set. I was really pissed. I thought maybe the items didn't sell for the price they wanted it to and mailed it out that way out of spite. Anyways, I mailed the one board game back (same way she shipped it to me) for the full refund. The Basic set fortunately had the contents undamaged (incl some extras...) which is what I was after.

In 10 years of enjoying this hobby, I've never had to use a Paypal dispute...

cthulhu-hand-lukes_com

Ordered a book... seller couldn't find it, wouldn't issue a refund, & stopped communicating.

I finally had to escalate to Paypal to get my money back.  So at least I know buyer protection works, which is good.  But still a waste of time & energy.

The other auction I just posted in the "silliest thread" also led me to this:

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **

"New" seller, from China with a ripped off auction(same as the other one was).

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **

Yeah, avoid, avoid, avoid.

Oh and ironically enough, it looks like I'm not the only one that had their bid cancelled by the seller in the "legit" auction.

What a turd. :evil:

Has a negative under the "MrMan" ID for cancelling an auction for a pair of scooters. Shouldn't something be showing up for these as well?

He cancelled the auction when I won for the PotVQ, but I did not neg him.  I can't speak to what happened with the set of Dragons. I didn't win them.




ETA: kind of interesting that the fake Chinese auction was out there for almost a full day with no action and then I posted it and now someone actually bought it.  Okay. :?
