ebay buyers are not always trustworthy...

Just a little rant about ebay policy today...I had a guy who bought 120 old video discs (the precursor to dvd and laser disc) from me at a really cheap price...I had planned to just throw them out but put them online to see if i could get anything...to cut a long story short he won the auction 3 weeks ago, first of all he made excuses about a paypal account, he then said he would have to get someone to collect them with him and as such was meant to turn up today...guess what, i get an email and he is busy at work, this is sent after he has meant to turn up...thus screwing up my plans for the day and I am still out of pocket as he was not the only person that bid for the items. Ebay should be insured so as to pay out to buyers who suffer this type of abuse, it certainly would not happen in a proper auction house...they could make a payout and then seek retribution from the person defaulting on the sale...don't you think that is a good idea?...as it is, they don't do anything unless you have paid for something and it doesn't turn up...that is the extent of their cover...thank god not all buyers are like the idiot I have mentioned above...

On a lighter note i feel very fluffy today...i seem to have a happy cloud hovering over me for the time being so I am going to make the most of it and be nice to everybody for at least a couple of days.

So glad that fuckin shit fuck bollocks Lisa is out of the house...I mean i don't mind a bit of rough but there is a difference between slate and aggregate...

Have a lovely Sunday everyone...all for now

I know just what you mean, as a seller on Ebay there is very little you can do if it all goes wrong. Ebay and it has to be said Paypal nearly always side on the side of the buyer. I agree the system needs looking at.
