eBay Sellers Beware:
I’ve been selling quite a lot of items on eBay recently, and it’s been going quite well. Unfortunately, just after I posted out a recent batch of orders I received a message off another eBay user warning me to be wary of one of the buyers. This helpful user gave me a list of around 20 other sellers that person had scammed, and sure enough, the scammer eventually messaged me pretending the item hadn’t arrived. After I put her off with a few deliberately awkward questions about the delivery, she opened a case… so I sent her this message;
I know you’ve received the item and that you’ve used this approach to get things for free off many other sellers, and I just wanted you to know that I think you’re a terrible person.
I’m a young man who works very hard for long hours just to earn enough to get by, and the reason I’m selling many of my personal belongings on eBay is so that I can afford to move out of my parent’s house and fix my car which at the moment probably isn’t safe to be on the road in, nevermind travel to and from work for 2 hours of every day on the motorway.
I considered giving this coat to a friend, but decided as I needed the money I would sell it on eBay; now, thanks to you, I not only no longer have the coat but I’ve had to pay for postage, eBay fees and PayPal fees just for you to steal it… and make no mistake, that is what you are doing, stealing.
One day this will catch up with you.
If you sell on eBay too and want to avoid getting stung, I suggest you block these user IDs: busterbuster999, plasticbag8844
