I agree with you. I would want her to face charges too. In the end, you got your money back and you can say you did all you could to stop her from scamming others.
@smiles731: yay! I hope the seller gets in tons of trouble.
I once was scammed by a seller on Buy.Com (I returned a $300 camera wthat had zero damage – not even a scratch – and they accused me of breaking it). after buy.com intervened and helped me get my refund, I wrote the seller a bad review and they started to harass me! they left me several voicemail messages and email messages, calling me a thief and a liar. of course buy.com intervened again to get the harassment to stop, and told me I wasn’t the first person to make these complaints about this seller.
I looked him up in BBB and saw that he got an F rating! after more investigation, I found out he was running three different businesses under slightly different names, all of them with tons of complaints against them. ugh. jerks.
In the future, I probably would not buy something like that again. Most things on ebay are faked, so just be careful!
Just so you know, eBay has removed your negative feedback from her profile…
Good luck with this…
Law enforcement needs to get involved. I would report this and have her charged and arrested. That’s a felony amount in any state.
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!!!! I spoke with my sister about trying to have the seller arrested. The precinct near me in NY wouldn’t do it because it occurred in a different state and it was a federal offense. My sister suggested that I contact the precinct in PA where the incident happened to see if they could do anything about an arrest. I will definitely contact ebay tomorrow about reposting my negative feedback, I meant to do this today but have been busy getting other things done that I should have been doing last week when I was frantic about this whole thing (like studying!)!
I really appreciate how everyone on here is so caring, it means alot! I will definitely notify you all if there are any updates with re: to an arrest!
I’m so relieved for you!!!
This actually happened to me and my mum in a similar way. She bought a pandora bracelet from a seller with positive feedback, and when it turned up it was very obviously a shoddily made fake. Not only did she have the sellers address, she made sure to contact pandora and inform them that this girl was selling fakes. She won her case with PayPal luckily!
I bought a pair of sunglasses advertised as ray bans (yes I should’ve been suspicious of the fact that they were a third of the cost) because the seller had entirely positive ratings and all the other comments were from people saying how the glasses were fantastic.
Seems none of those people could recognise fakes! I immediately contacted trading standards with the sellers details, and the seller was super quick to refund me once I outlined all the tell-tale signs that showed they were fake during the PayPal dispute.
Needless to say you have to be very careful with anything you buy on there! Well done on winning your dispute 🙂 must be a big weight off your mind!
congrats on your money back! i had a similiar horrid experience with a dress maker Payl & ebay were not able to help me as my item didnt come in “their time limit” even tho i had proof of several emails to the seller. –
anyway other way to make sure she doesnt do this again is to file a complaint here :
