eBay Garbage

Agree 100%. I’m generally open to negotiation, but when the message is: are you a scalper or a TrUe CoLlEcToR?

Then proceeds to berate me for not selling to them for half of listing price isn’t exactly a positive experience.

This is why Pokémon shouldn’t be featured on the news or Youtubers talking about values in videos. Who wants to tell him his “1st edition” Eevee isn’t worth $200? Classic example of someone watching 1 video and thinking they found a gold mine in their closet.

So after lots of messages from an ebay user they bought 4x 25th Anniversary Japanese boxes from me, a day later they were so excited that they bought another 2x clearing my available stock of them totalling hundreds of £s.

Lots of enthusiastic messages telling me how to post it and if I had done it yet whilst I was at work…

Then 2 hours after it was posted they changed their mind.

He said he just realised he couldn’t pull tHe ZaRd from the packs so the boxes are completely useless to him and he wants to return them.

Hopefully he actually sends the boxes back as they were sent. I know it’s an easy mistake to assume that the 25th classic collection comes in the boxes but it’s frustrating that ebay punishes us sellers for the incompetence of other people. Altogether the guy has sent over 20 messages which is a complete headache.

Had I been on the other side of this I would have either sucked up the loss or at least offered to pay the postage costs the seller had lost due to my mistake.

Although I really do wish the promo packs were sealed inside the 25th Anniversary boxes to avoid this confusion and to prevent people searching them with a light while they remain sealed

did he pay before you sent the items?!

I sold a card on ebay, it was sketchy from the beginning, but the card was only listed for $25 so I took the risk. The buyer had a 151 feedback score, but this was the first thing they bought in 1 year, kind of a red flag. They offer me $20 for the $25 card; another red flag. I accept their offer then they ask if they can pay using Zelle; yet another red flag. I tell them no and do the whole thing on ebay. They agree. After paying they message me asking me to change the shipping address; yet another red flag. I tell them I can’t. They say that it’s fine.

Today the card was delivered, low and behold. USPS sent them a clear plastic bag for items damaged during shipping, with my package neatly folded inside with no damage at all, just very neatly opened.

I was done with them and didn’t want to go through the trouble for a $25 card so I just sent them a refund and blocked them from my listings. Buyer was 11danielcastaneda in case anybody wants to add to their block list.

Lesson learned: I’m a complete and utter fool and should stop for red flags. Also don’t respond to people who need to send you 16 messages for a $20 item.

I wish PSA could mark certs as stolen or void them for stuff like this. :unamused:

Luckily I didn’t post this the next day as the buyer messaged to cancel it 24 hours after paying… because he got the same card cheaper “Lol”

he/she seems excited. Don’t ruin their vibe

Offering $20 on a $25 isnt a red flag… but zelle then asking for a diff address is.

This reminds me of the kick starter to make potato salad that made thousands of dollars. Worst case it sits there doing nothing and is a joke for people who see it, best case this guy makes $5.

“Hey Will, this is your bank…”

His bank must monitor suspicious eBay accounts :roll_eyes:

Why do people buy or bid on items they don’t intend to buy? I just can’t wrap my mind around why this happens so often :man_facepalming:
