[QUOTE=yojimbo197;2674703]yeah i disagree cholla. as a buyer eBay protects you more than as a seller. ive been burned three times by sellers in the last year. eBay didnt side withe me in all three cases and forced me to return the sellers money. on top of which they still collected.their cut of the auction price, the shipping fee, and my payment through paypal. in one case i lost additional money because the seller waited until the last dayout of thirty days to.dispute. so by the time i got the hard drive back the market had turned and i had to relist for less.[/QUOTE]
From your example I don’t understand where we disagree ?
It seems you were the buyer & got burned by the sellers.
ebay protected the sellers in your example.
I thought that is what I posted.
