Had an unfortunate run in with a member of the Pokemon community and I wanted to give everyone the heads up. Hope hes a member here so he can explain why he lied and stole my card.

Onto the story …
This member bought a PSA 9 Legendary Collection Charizard. He hit the BIN of $150CDN and paid immediately. Here is the auction:
He receives the card for some reason is surprised it isnt the holo version. As you can see from my other auctions, I dont key word spam “holo” for non holo versions. The title does not state the card is a holo version, neither does the item description.
I get a message on ebay saying he accidentally bought the card thinking it was the holo version ( I guess he decided to BIN / take advantage of a steal and not ask too many questions or read the title or description )
Tell the guy were sorry for your mistake, but we refuse to to issue you a refund based on your own stupidity / mistake. If its our fault, no problem, but because this is on you we wont issue a refund and eat the loss.
Anyways, he opens a case against us and of course were going to lose. He marks the card as “item arrived not as described” and we leave it up to ebay to decide. In his initial write up for the claim, he states the mishap was his mistake, that he hit the BIN too quickly and did not realize he was buying a non holo version. He admits he was the person wrong here. We reply that because the buyer is owning up to his own mistakes, we should not have to give a refund or tracked shipping which we would have to provide as per ebay rules.
Anyways, the claim ends … as always, ebay sides with the buyer … they issue him a refund and we still dont have our card.
He not only lied saying the item “arrived not as described”, but he has now stolen our card. He has had ample time to return the item ( we are both in the same province ) and I guess he has just decided to keep it as a little bonus.
Watch out if this guy is buying your items, he seems to be a “power seller” on ebay as well.
