eBay Idiots

Posted by mikenopolis on May 9, 2007

Do you ever wonder how bad an eBay transaction can become? I think I am on a journey to the find the answer to that. Recently I sold a New Unlocked Blackberry Pearl. I am fairly convinced that the buyer is not very educated or literate for that matter. He misspells a lot of words. He also told me that he needed to pay me later (or that he tells me I’ll see it later) because he’s located in the eastern time zone…not sure what he means, but I’m in the west coast, if he pays me at midnight, I’ll still get it at 9:00pm. I didn’t get his payment until the next morning after I emailed him again. After the phone was received, the buyer first emails me and saids the wired headset was not in the box. I told him it wasn’t included in the eBay ad, but I’m willing to ship him one free of charge if he likes. He doesn’t respond to that and sends me a profane email (one of MANY) stating that the phone is not unlocked. I had unlocked the phone and tested it out for 1 full day prior to posting the item. So we go into a dispute mediation with SquareTrade (eBay Company) in the end I am convince that the phone does not work for him because he is not subscribed to the Blackberry service which will cost $40+ extra per month. We are now in a PayPal dispute. I have submitted all pictures I took of the phone in both Cingular and T-Mobile service (Proving it’s unlocked), I provided the unlock code given to me by Cingular. the picture of the IMEI#, all documentation and emails gong back and forth. Now I wait for a judgment.
