EBAY- PARASITES.... EBAY ===GREEDY, UNETHICAL, LIARS. Ebay buyer protection is a scam, Ebay ratings are a scam and "Ebay file a case"... is a scam. Bought shoes off of Ebay, paid good money for them- nearly 50 bucks. I got them and they were nothing like the pic. The seller had a refund policy right on the same page she listed the shoes I bought. She wrote: if not satisfied will gladly issue a refund. When I received the shoes, I was shocked to find out I had been bamboozled. She must have taken the pictures of the shoes when they were brand new, wore the hell out of them and then when she was done with them put them up for sale... or something like that. She took THEE best pictures of these shoes one could possibly take but they were in no way true-to-life pictures. I went through the process of contacting the seller to see if she would honor her own refund policy... of course she DIDN'T. She would not issue me a refund because all she had to do was DENY my reason for wanting a refund then she used her 'good score' to call me a liar because she had a bunch of happy customers. I'm not debating that she did have happy customers but to use that against a customer who is not happy with being manipulated into buying a worn out old pair of shoes after seeing a picture of lightly used, nearly new shoes.... that's a rip off. Why even offer a refund if you are not going to honor it?? To put the buyer at ease when making a decision to hit the "BUY" button. So then after, I contacted seller who denied my concerns, and refused to issue a refund, she told me to open a case with EBAY knowing that would not do me any good. She seemed to be an 'old pro' at this, and has obviously gone through it before. I opened a case with a very relevant complaint and pleaded with Ebay that they let me send them the pics in the auction and pictures that I would take of the shoes so that they can compare the actual condition to the auction pictures.
I did not get a reply, a few hours later I received a 'decision to side with the seller' ebay saying that I had changed my mind about the purchase of the shoes... hahaha... I have to laugh. Because that is absolutely a LIE. They sided with her because they make alot of fees on her, and I am only a periodic shopper. I know money talks to Ebay... but that's the only thing, they don't really decide based on facts, truth, on what is right and ethical and true... they simply make their decision "FOR" who they make more money off of (.) So... don't even bother arguing with them whether you are a seller or buyer if you are up against someone with more purchases or sales than you... it's futile. and don't trust the 100% rating- that's a fraudulent lie for the people ebay makes money off of. EBAY would not even LOOK at my own pics of the shoes before they decided... they just gave an automated excuse and sided with $eller. I believe the decision was automated because... had a real person seen these shoes they would have shook their head like I did and issued a refund immediately and pulled the seller's shirt tale for scamming me. I don't think a thrift store would have had these shoes up for sale. They are trash worthy..or dog worthy that's about it. thee most expensive doggy chew toys... ever.... FU EBAY- you greedy parasitic dirt bags.
