With Black Friday just behind us and Cyber Monday still going strong, our wallets aren't safe for the season quite yet. As I visit shopping websites today I'm finding that everything is very slow- in fact I think the slowest I've ever seen it. It seems that everywhere is having trouble processing orders and giving error messages when you click on website links. Shipping out all of these Cyber Monday orders tonight will no doubt prove to be a challenge for me!
Anyways, time for a rant..
I recently sold a huge lot of all of the game systems I had left on eBay to help fund some new stuff. *Posting pictures soon!*
I didn't plan on selling them for less than about $1,500, but finally decided what the heck? A guy had been pestering me about trying to save the money the whole time I Had them listed. I eventually agreed to $1,200 with free shipping. SO, when adding together totals after fees and shipping costs my net profit was under $800 and that's not even including what I paid for all of the game systems at some point or another. After packaging five fifty pound packages and sending them off, I hear back from him two weeks later.
This guy claims that almost everything arrived broken, and that a bunch of it works fine otherwise. A week later he claims nothing works, and won't send me pictures of boxes or packing material to file claims with Fedex with because he "burned it all". Now a week before this he'd told me he received another game system lot also sold as is with lots of broken stuff and non working stuff from another seller. Then he twists his story and claims that a bunch of the stuff I sent him doesn't work. Lie after lie, he eventually grows to the point of threatening me. He claims he will file a Paypal case directly rather than going through eBay and many other things that I won't get into right now.
He buys under a buyer user name which is gzone2011, but I was able to find his seller ID fairly easily. It's generalzods_gamingzone which can be confirmed by the fact his Paypal email address also has the "generalzods" in it. Feel free to do with this information as you please! :)
