    Ebay Users to Avoid

    I hope this isn't against rules, and I typically find 'online bash lists' to be childish and stupid, but I am extremely tolerant and lenient with the stupidity I deal with when dealing with the public. I have been in all my jobs, and in my private life selling anything and everything online, including Ebay. Be it videogames, books, gun parts, you name it. Because of this, I have very few people on my Ebay ban list. Therefore, it is highly likely the ones that are on there, are ones you too should avoid if you sell on ebay. Typically con artists, scammers, extremely unreasonable people, general trolls and idiots. So while I certainly don't want to start anything (not that any of them would be here,) I would like to post my list of who is currently on my block list. This comes to mind mainly because I've been dealing with some very shady and unreasonable people (they start things usually before they buy, red flag one) and it seems to be a growing issue I haven't really dealt with to these extremes until lately.

    So, without further ado:

    boothwillie
    burtowil-5451
    cbholloway1989
    googoomebih88
    groundzerotattooriverside
    harus_kliq6e
    kstatejayz

    the latest is one I blocked today (last guy on the list there) for sending me the following on a videogame listing that is priced extremely fairly, and graded properly:

    Him
    "Very good condition?! There is a giant rip in the label how do you justify that being in very good condition?"
    Me
    "Because it's barely there and the rest is in excellent condition compared to the pricier ones I've seen? There was a sun faded and sun-damaged one that was selling for even more, last I checked this is the cheapest one on Ebay. I don't get what the problem is. By all means, don't buy it. I have no qualms with somebody who doesn't want something not buying it. What was the purpose of this message exactly?"

    I guarantee in my experience (I've been on Ebay for over a decade) this individual had he not been dumb enough to flag himself with this nonsense, would have bought the item, complained to Ebay and or Paypal about the pictured small tear (which has had a policy for years now to almost automatically side with buyers regardless of circumstance or evidence against their supposed claims) gotten a full refund, kept the item for himself or resold it. I have seen this happen over and over. Even when Ebay demands a buyer return an item before refund, they can send an empty box and screw you over and Ebay and Paypal won't listen to reason.

    ALWAYS if you are selling a disc item like a CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, videogame, you name it, take a picture of all sides with as little reflection of if you can (they have done things like seen a reflection and Ebay judged it's a scratch when it's not) for evidence to protect yourself before sending an item out.

    Always note shipment weight as well. There have been false claims of not getting an item and merely taking a picture of the box the item came in and Ebay siding with the buyer who has the item because the picture shows an empty box. (How is that even real evidence?) I haven't checked as of late but USPS used to show their exact calculated weight on tracking, therefore if one claims to get an empty flat rate box and the box weighs X and with the item that's clearly in the box USPS says Y, it's evidence they are lying.

    I could go on and on, but the message is clear: be vigilant and above the riff-raff. These people are ruining Ebay. I also kind of got distracted by a few people during this post, so if something is incoherent I apologize lol

    I've been lucky and kept only positive reviews, but I am generally one of those 'better to take a loss' types. Though I do try to rationalize and calm down the scammers and frothing-mouthed morons the best I can. I sold a DVD set once that was imported from Singapore, guy went to Ebay and Paypal calling me a scammer saying they were bootleg (they weren't) merely because it said made in Singapore or something like that in fine print on the back instead of made in China. Still functioned flawlessly and same as the American version, but because it was from a different country Joe Schmo Scammer thought it was a nice idea to try and get it free. I had to research detailed photos that showed the fine print to show to Ebay before they basically told him you are wrong, which surprised me they even bothered to listen to me.

    I realize it's copying and pasting and not you consciously or decidedly so I'm not trying to be a jerk or offend anyone, but note to those less familiar that WHATEVERNUMBERS@deleted are pointless to copy to your ban list as they are accounts that have been banned or deleted by choice or something else. So when you copy and paste lists if you do, delete the WHATEVERNUMBERS@DELETED after. Especially since Ebay limits blocks by your account status and transactions; (which is idiotic at best but whatever,) you will want free space because of these number limits for potential bans.

    I'd also like to add it will be interesting to see how many people show up in multiple ban lists.

    I guess that I've either been lucky or scrupulous with my EBaying over the years (since 2004 buying and selling). I don't have a list of sellers to avoid. That being said, I could probably whip up a short list of buyers to avoid.
    No......it's not that I'm up early....or late for that matter. It's just that I never sleep.

    Post em. There used to be a website dedicated to what this thread is about until I believe if I'm not mistaken, Ebay actually bought the site specifically to close it, 'cause you know... gotta keep the money flowing even if it's through the antics of douchebag scammers. lol

    ha~ I had an ebay account from 1999 until somewhat recently..i'm too lazy to look it up... closed it right before there was a privacy breach scandal thing.

    once the neighborhood went downhill, i bailed. not worth it for me.
