To my fellow gooheads,
First off if you ever sell anything on ebay and the buyer comes back to you and says its broken and doesn't work ask for PROOF! Simple pictures tell the story. If they refuse to show proof then BAM then you know they are full of sh!t. Don't be bullied by people like this. Read my interactions with this buyer and beware gooheads. Oh and I'm wohlster57 in the conversations.
hello received the lava lamp today .it doesnt come on and the base is loose afraid it will not hold the bottle.i would like a refund.
I dont want this item .just refund me and send me a prepaid return postage .ans send pic will not show the base is loose nor will it show it doesnt light.i placed a bid on a working item and received different .refund please
No clue why the text is black, hope oyu guys can read it still.
Well, "Love, Doc", lol, it is apparent that you have encountered someone from the Dark Side. Good Grief, what a squirrel, tries to flat out steal your lamp and and then says God Bless You? Definitely a nut case and pure out and out crook. I hope he don't mess up your perfect feedback!
You handled that extremely well though. I might have gone after him.
It should be "God" heathen....
when it says 'no returns' 'sold as is ' you cant just decided you don't want something for no reason other than the lightbulb is burnt out ! what a dork !
i run across a buyer like this every once in a while on ebay. i laugh!
I had someone tell me a wave machine I sold them was broken and that they wanted a refund. I asked them for a photo and never heard from them again. Also, I fixed your text color problem.
Well they opened a case against me so we will see what ebay has to say about all this. Whats funny is that they claim they dont know how to take and send photos. Like realy? a member since 2001 whose sold stuff before cant send photos?
Don't even tell me its the one for $5.50 (which btw looks to me to be in pristine condition)...and they are putting up this much of a stink? Probably has cost them more in electricity to run their computer to write the emails I had someone pull a stunt like this with a laptop once, I clearly stated in my description that the battery was being included, but it was AS-IS due to age, no refunds, etc. for any issues with the battery. SO they get it, and call me up stating the battery fell apart and they want either money back or a refund....I tried in vain to explain that the battery wasn't covered and was sold as is, but that I'd be willing to work with them but I wanted a photo of the battery. Well I never got a photo, and ended up refunding some of his payment because he threatened negative feedback, and since I sell under my father's account, I had no choice but to comply because if I would have gotten him a neg. feedback I would have been banned from using his account. I prefer to just keep 1 account for both of us because the higher number of sales helps us both out, as opposed to me having to start over at 0.
But it goes to show you, turns me off from selling on there. Especially with electronics and the like.
This is why I don't sell on Ebay. They take 10% of the sale and they can't even provide clear instructions on what I have to do as a seller to ensure any dispute will come out in my favor. (They do have guidelines, but they're so vague that Ebay could easily interpret them to reach whatever conclusion they want.)
The sale price might be lower locally, in person, or to a trusted forum member, but I usually end up with more money in the end anyway. I just wish Ebay had some viable competition.
I have a store on Ebay, Etsy and Amazon, nothing major just enough to support my crippling addiction of collection miscellaneous things like lava lamps and nes games :P
Ebay does often favor the seller but given that you are practically begging the guy to send you a picture and he is the one not complying I don't think you have anything to worry about. Keep us posted!
God doesn't liars...... WELL PLAYED SIR, well played!
