Even more interesting is that the same bidder (sjtracy99) jacked the
price up to the same amount on each auction and has no feedback at all
even though they've been a member since Jan 03. This whole thing
stinks to high heaven.
Definitely a scam, the two users that left feedback for the seller of
this item have been inactive for two years and then both mysteriously
left feedback for the same two new users, thomasc317 and sungoh703.
Another way to protect yourself is to email the "seller" and ask for an
address and telephone number...then verify them. Legit sellers usually
don't mind providing this info.
If you cannot establish the legitimacy of the seller, don't bid.
If you use Paypal (which is owned by ebay) you can file a claim against
a seller but only for very specific reasons. Check the ebay website for
I bought a wireless router (the computer type, not woodworking type)
last year that was delivered DOA. I went round and round with the
seller who was claiming the router was sold "as is, no refunds".
He claimed it had a manufacturers warranty, but they refused to honor it
because it was sold on ebay.
Bottom line, his auction information was false, I filed a claim, Paypal
agreed and refunded my money. I shipped him his DOA router back and
dropped the bomb on him in feedback.
Must've smelled wrong to eBay, too. It's not there anymore.
