That’s a nicely hacked account, recreated 20 March 2018.
Hopefully the bids already made on some items are not from genuine would-be customers. :cry:

Ebay really is becoming a rats nest. I just bought 3 central heating radiator's and forgot to look at the account, feedback, other tell tails. It is so easy to get stiched up on there.

Edit : and the listing has gone along with the other 369 items that were being sold for "a family member"

Yes, I avoid eBay like the plague now. My son sold a brand new computer game a year or so ago for £30. He paid £4 to post it and a couple of months later received notification that the buyer had claimed that they hadn't authorised the payment from their card, so they were given a full refund. No chance for my son to object. So he lost his computer game and the £4 he paid to post it.
eBay told him that he should have tracked the parcel and because he didn't he had no recourse. Makes no sense at all! So, I don't use them any more.

I have entered into and won a few disputes over the years via ebay,
including one for a Dolomite heater that I won for 99 pence,

but it hasn't put me off using ebay.

Indeed, a particularly good feature is the option to collect from Argos...
I have been able to buy several large items without paying the notorious carriage "surcharge"
and have also been able to buy from sellers who only post to England (because the Argos hub is in Lancashire).
(Demon Tweaks sent me two seats in one box, when I went to collect them, the woman in Argos looked rather alarmed at the parcel size
but it only weighed 10KG :D !)



Ian.

Actually there are still some bargains on ebay, I bought radiators and bathroom taps, shower etc for about 60% less than the BathStore, same quality same product as far as I can see.

Selling is more hassle from my experience.
I recently sold some ski boots size 27.5 mondo, I was forced to provide a return and refund as the buyer complained about the size. Mass-produced ski boots are produced in the half size that cover the lower full size. So the same shell is used for a 27.5 as well as a 27.0. There is no 27.5 on its own unless you pay big money for a higher end boot. The buyer found the boots too small so complained that I had falsely advertised the boots as 27.5. The shell had a stamp showing 27.0-27.5 so they told ebay they were smaller boots than 27.5 dead.
Even though I proved the boots were correct for anyone who has been measured to fit 27.5 - the boot length of 318mm is the same for any 27.5 or 27.0 boot, also provided evidence from the manufacturer that the boot is sized from 27.5 down to 27.0 and is the correct boot. Still got shafted. Stupid div clubfoot buyer really needed a 28.0 (of which the boot they would buy will have 28.0-28.5 stamped on it somewhere).

You have my sympathies for my brother has had similar issues with rogue buyers. He used to buy mobile phones with cracked screens, repair them and then sell them on eBay. Not once but twice he sent out phones, only for the 'buyer' to complain that the boxes were mysteriously empty when delivered. He argued with eBay and Paypal that this was a scam but they were not interested, they just shut down his account, leaving him a few hundred pounds out of pocket. I told him he should take the buyers to court but he just gave up at that point.

That hacked account scam listing for the Toledo and many other vehicles was still up earlier today, so eBay disregarding their own reporting function. As I was being hassled for the payment for the prohibited V5 and VIN plate sale I 'won' recently I gave them a call (not easy I can assure you), explained about the hacked account and that they were pursuing me for payment of a prohibited item. An hour later I see they have locked that hacked account and removed my non payment status, hard work being a good guy, no wonder most people don't bother.

The scammers are hacking accounts at an alarming rate there has been over 2000 in the vehicles section today that i know of and there will be more and ebay seem to be doing very little about it.

I also had some hassle with a seller, i advertised something that was broken and showed close up pics of it along with it being in the write up, The guy then reported me to ebay for it being broken and got a full refund and kept the item, i rang ebay to complain about this for them to agree that i had done nothing wrong but could not explain about why the refund, i told them i was closing my account unless i got my money back which the did out of their own pocket, so the guy got his money and the item which he bought knowing of its condition so must of used it.
