    Sometimes it's awesome. Sometimes it sucks balls.

    I had a bnib set of black juliet lenses listed. Even had the sku in the title. Said they were for juliets in 3 places. A guy buys them and I send him a thank you immediately telling him I'll send them the next morning. Two days later he messages talking about "oh I moved can you send them to a different address? Oh and do they fit a Romeo?" I told him I already sent them to his confirmed PayPal address and no they only fit juliet like it says.

    After a week of forwarding he gets them. Then messages me saying "I was hoping they would fit, maybe interchangeable with Romeo. How do I get a refund?" Of course I told him he was SOL, I don't do refunds for people that can't even bother to read the damn listing or ask a question before they buy something. I was nice(ish) about it.

    Next message I get from him " I took the lenses to an oakley store, manager says they're fake. I want a refund" leaves feedback saying they're fake.

    I called ebay and explained the situation to the very unhelpful woman. She said I could accept the return (he initiated one) or wait it out and let them step in in a week but they'd probably rule that he can return them. I asked what if he sends me some busted fake lenses? She said ebay would look into it if that happens. Until then, wait.

    Lesson learned, use ebay as a last resort for selling.


    TL;DR:

    People suck, ebay sucks. Sometimes.

    I agree. I hate using ebay. Fees are ridiculous. Buyer protection policy is horrible. I am surprised anyone uses it. So hard to make any money.

    And I thought I was the only one that gets Stupid people buying my stuff on the bay!!

    Sorry to hear that. I have had that happen more times than I would like to count.

    Ebay 99.999% of the time will side with the buyer. That is the bad side.

    Still a good place to reach more eyeballs. Take the bad with the good I guess.

    I have my moments on fleabay hahahahaha recieving an empty box with magazines instead of the one i truly bought that sucks and never got my money back yes i got my moments atleast now they side with the buyers as it should be like amazon no BS. I do understand your situation and it sucks FAKES come on now send to a diffeent location never do that only paypal confirmed address its a double edge sword really i seldom sell there now and if somebody bought from me i message him back and ask him if he really wanted the item as i dont accept returns regardless im sorry to hear that awful experience i hope that jack ass returns the item the same condition you had them also badnews is thats how of members appraise their pieces through pieces sold on fleabay.

    It's a good thing I don't read your posts out loud; I'd run out of breath first, for want of a period... :D
