So this post is not beauty related but instead I need to vent!
I sell bits and bobs on ebay occasionally (mainly nail polish) just to make a few quid here and there so I can treat myself to some more expensive make up bits.
I recently sold an item to a fellow ebay and shipped it 2 days later.
A week later I was left a message claiming that the item had not arrived even though they had paid 2 weeks back.
This was a blatant lie, but to be civil and polite I offered to negotiate some sort of compensation with them in a week's time if they still had not received the item.
The next day I received a message from a different ebayer telling me they had had the exact same issue with this buyer and so had 3 other ebayers.
I heard no more from the buyer but exchanged a few messages about what to do next with the other seller.
This was about 3 and a half weeks ago and about an hour ago I received a message from ebay informing me that the buyer had opened a case against me.
They had stated that there had been no communication what so ever and had no received their product.
I was so shocked at the audacity of them to lie and say that I had not been in contact.
This has just made me pretty angry. I clearly stated that once I had posted the parcel it was not my responsibility, because quite frankly it isn't. The item cost £5, I am not going to send it recorded delivery (that's not what they paid for) and I am not going to personally escort the post man to ensure a safe delivery.
Now if they honestly haven't received the item then that is very unfortunate, but not my fault.
I have a big feeling that this person is scamming me and others on ebay. Its just my gut instinct,
I have 100% feedback and theirs is 90%.
I just don't see how people can get away with this.
Do you sell on ebay? Have you had a similar experience?
If you have the I really appreciate any tips on how to deal with this matter.
