I've made many purchases on ebay . Most have been a bargain .
I have received a few things that were not a good as represented.
Like a poster that was supposed to be an original.
I reported it to ebay . No results there other than a suggestion to return it.
The seller continued to sell this poster for about 2 years after that .
With the claim it was original.
So much for ebay integrity.
You might ask; Why didn't I return it ?
Simple . Because it looked good & I liked it .
I just thought the price should have been some less for a reproduction .
I even went as far as e-mailing Winchester to complain that this ebay seller was using their registered trademark . Counterfeiting it & not paying them .
I got a nice thank you email back but I saw no results at ebay.
My brother recently purchased a car windshield camera .
It's timestamp is stuck . He tried to e-mail the seller through ebay.
The item had been completely removed . Even from his account . (So much for ebay account privacy). He couldn't leave a negative comment because of that.
To top that off when he went back to ebay archives where it did have the item.
He tried to contact the seller that way . The message was more or less this:
" The seller is from a foreign ebay site & has a different language than your email.
There may be no response." Then it wouldn't send because of that. Nor did it inform the language needed.
