His feedback history as a sports card collector speaks volumes about his total lack of ethics, dishonesty and downright dirty tactics at getting out of paying for auctions.
His feedback left for others over the years on eBay is proof that he cares little about defamation to the businesses he slanders and libels in the wake of his unethical practices.
People like Mr. Brown should be removed from eBay and banned from bidding. People like Mr. William E. Brown obviously have no business doing business on eBay.
Instead of contacting a seller and at least attempting to resolve an issue Mr. Brown prefers to send threatening emails and immediately file a case with paypal alleging that he has been harmed simply because a seller hasnt responded within days to an email inquiry or if a seller hasnt shipped an item within 3-5 days of an auction ending. [continued below]....
This fact further corroborates that Mr. William Brown is a terrible communicator and buyer on eBay and should be removed from eBay.
Mr. Brown has repeatedly written insulting dialogue in his online feedback towards other sellers on eBay and is in fact himself a seller on eBay with negative feedback.
Regardless of what Mr. William E. Brown may think defamation of character of a business or individual is a morally wrong and prosecutable.
Buyer and Seller beware and think before buying sports memoribilia, sports cards or anything from someone like Mr. William E. Brown of Crystal Lake IL.
This morally bankrupt individual thinks nothing of slandering hard working business owners on ebay and in fact laughs about the incidents he incites.
Many, many sellers have endured the anger and frustration of dealing with such an irreverent, hostile and downright dishonest buyer when dealing with Mr. William E. Brown.
His feedback further indicates that he has had numerous problems within the ebay auction system from buyers of his own sports cards and auction on ebay. His ebay username is luvrefractors
Anyone thinking about buying from Mr. William E. Brown would do well to look at the language he uses in the feedback he leaves for other sellers and buyers on ebay.
The motive behind Mr. Browns libelous actions apparently stems from his indecisive, unethical and careless nature when it comes to doing business with other human beings.
He is obviously a sociopath and narcissistic person that actually gets off on the rage and hostility he incites in others. He loves leaving negative feedback without warning for other ebay sellers and acts as judge jury and executioner before ever even listening to any extenuating circumstances
that may explain why a transaction was delayed on ebay or why an item was not shipped immediately.
The bottom line is people that intentionally do harm to other reputations online with a cavalier and sadistic an attitude like Mr. William Brown should NOT be allowed to be part of an online community like ebay where the majority of buyers and sellers act with common decency and respect towards one another.
The fact is William E. Brown of Crystal Lake ( 6408 Martin St. Crystal Lake Illinois 60014-4960) is an individual that simply will say and do anything to get out of paying for an item. Mr. William Brown also threatens other users with feedback extortion if they do not comply with his refund demands.
He has gotten away with this unethical and morally depraved behavior repeatedly on ebay and its about time someone speaks up about scumbag buyers and sellers on ebay.
That truly is the best description of someone that could care less about defaming and destroying the reputation of others on ebay only to fullfill his own agenda of getting away with not paying for items he feels he overbid on.
William E. Brown of Crystal Lake IL is a scumbag buyer and seller of sports cards on ebay and other sports card trading sites. Buyer beware and make sure to read the feedback he routinely leaves for other sellers whenever he wants to get out of a transaction and not pay for items he won at auction.
Them most disturbing aspect of Mr. William E. Brown's behaviour is the fact that he continues to leave negative feedback and ebay is letting him get away with it.
He repeatedly fails to make timely payment of an item he has purchased often making a seller wait over a week to get payment. Only after an unpaid item case is automatically opened by ebay will he often finally pay for an item.
the next step is sending the seller a threatening email if they havent shipped the card immediately after he has made payment within 3 days. Remember according to Mr. William Brown of Crystal Lake IL ( 5 Wexford Ct Lake In The Hills, IL 60156 & 6408 Martin St. Crystal Lake IL 60014 ) it OK for him to not make payment for over a week... yet then he demands immediate shipping....
I frankly dont blame sellers for making Mr. William E. Brown of Crystal Lake IL wait for his item when he could care less about making his paypal payment after winning an auction over a week prior.
The final step Mr. William E. Brown uses to defraud sellers and waste their time, is he files a case with paypal over frivolous things like an email that wasnt responded to immediately or an item that has a printed shipping label or tracking number, yet the item has not cleared the post office yet...
He then send more threatening emails about leaving "correct feedback" against a seller or buyer... UNLESS they immediately refund Mr. William E. Brown.
So exactly what has transpired?
Well its rather obvious....
Mr William E. Brown IS indecisive and CHANGES his mind about purchases frequently on eBay.
Mr. William E. Brown then decides to procrastinate making payment and ignores sellers that he rightfully should communicate with and remit payment to.
Mr William E. Brown then makes payment over a week late ignoring the payment terms of the auction and files a case with paypal to get his money back if the seller somehow does not keep up with the order that was from a week or more prior.
Sneaky, low down dirty and shameful tactics like this only serve to DISRUPT the natural flow of business on the web. People that use the system to allege they have been wronged simply in order to get a refund and change their mind on a purchase are both unethical and disruptive to the whole ebay community.
In real life auctions buyers like Mr. William E. Brown would be prosecuted or sued. Not on eBay where most of time Mr. William E. Brown is acting as a buyerwithin the ebay community.
because of the ebay buyer protection program, people like Mr Willaim E. Brown are able to get away with dishonest, unethical behavior simply because the system assumes most people have a conscience and think twice about defaming others in the community....
But not Mr. William Brown who appears to actually enjoy his GOD complex and heaping insults and judgments on other sellers on ebay especially when an item simply hasnt shipped fast enough for them, or when they havent received a response quick enough.
Many sellers are proud of their flawless feedback score and ability to always do the right thing with customers on ebay, thus avoiding conflict and unnecessary stress and negative feedback.
That experience is impossible when dealing with Mr. William Brown who will leave the most negative diatribes and feedback over the smallest thing on ebay simply because he doesnt want to pay his bills when he wins an auction.
Do yourself a favor. If you are thinking of doing business with someone like MR. WILLIAM E BROWN of CRYSTAL LAKE IL... read the feedback he has left for others on his ebay profile section and ask yourself:
Is Mr. William E. Brown really someone I want to take the risk of doing business with? Is it really worth the risk to my reputation to do business with someone who repeatedly lies, manipulates and threatens other good hard working people on ebay simply because he is CHEAP and changes his mind after placing a bid ( contract )
Buyer and Seller BEWARE this depraved sociopath is an ebay nightmare to deal with and is in fact a repeat offender on ebay. Stear clear of this unethical, selfish, self absorbed person that clearly is delusional about how affects the business world of ebay around himself.
Shame on you Mr. William E. Brown your lack of character and narcissism really proves that you indeed are the immature child.... not your buyers or the unfortunate seller that have to endure your heaping pile of bull that you hurl in insults towards others all the time on ebay.
For the record. People like you are what make many people leave ebay after being the recipient of similar feedback extortion tactics whereyou threaten to leave negative feedback unless you get a refund.
Stay away from ebay users like Mr William E. Brown and you will enjoy ebay a whole lot more.
The best way to stear clear of dishonest scumbag buyers like Mr .William E. Brown is to READ their feedback score and CANCEL their bids and BLOCK them from bidding on your auctions if you are a seller.
Always check to see WHO has bid on your auctions and REMOVE bidders that routinely leave negative unwarranted, dishonest feedback simply to get out of paying for items.
This way you dont have to sell on ebay to scumbag bidders like Mr. William Brown of Crystal Lake IL
People like Mr William E. Brown are what make doing business on ebay and online in general a risk.
