eBay: Master Thread
« on: November 04, 2010, 10:36:42 AM »
I purchased a BB picked it up. While there I notice a small  speck. When I came home and tried wiping it I realized it was scratched, in more than one place. Called up, seller claims it can't be, "only activated", must have come that way. I could tell that it was obviously dropped.

Loooooong story.

I bought this to ship to s/o who purchased my brand new BB on ebay but I made a mistake in the listing so bought him this one. I offered him a $30 refund due to scratches and he accepted. After having trouble activating it he bought one from the store and asked for a refund, I responded that since  its not stolen, no refund. I had verified clear ESN. So he opens case - for scratches! I spoke to ebay and realized that I would lose this SNAD so I let him return it for a refund and opened a SNAD case against my seller.

The seller did not respond so I escalated and won. A week later the seller sends me this nasty email that just because they didn't check ebay they lost and her husband is district attorney and they have opened a small claims case against me. (We live in the same state)
Where do we go from here. How do I figure out if her husband is really DA ( I don't think its worth it for her to pursue it otherwise).

OK so she's lying I figured out her town does not have a DA and her husband has a different job (Thanks Google!, it wasn't that easy though)
Question is what are her chances in small claims court. Is eBay in any way legally binding?

How much did you pay for the phone?
It does cost $$ to file for a case in small claims court, probably just empty threats as I can't imagine that it would be worth it.

Did you take any pics when you got the phone?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

"Outside of eBay" means that eBay doesn't get their fee. It is perfectly within their terms (albeit not very smart) to pick up the item locally, and pay with cash, as long as you don't go ahead and cancel the transaction.

eBay questions

I am wondering if there is a way to export My eBay to excel (won items). I found this program called myebayexport, but it didn't work.

I believe that there is a way to export to csv.

I'm not sure, but when you look @ the fees you pay, I believe you can export everything from there.

it is, but as eBay ym"sh charges for every movement, and they need to itemize what they charge you for, you should get a complete list.
