Name and Shame Bad eBayers

Since eBay made the feedback system a one way street, it added yet another level to the disadvantages that must be endured by eBay sellers. Buyers (even the ones that don’t pay) now operate with impunity on eBay. Sellers are unable to leave anything other than positive feedback for buyers. This assumes all buyers are without blemish and in possession of a clean set of morals and ethics. All very well if you live in The Night Garden, but not entirely realistic in the real world.

The Paypal scammer is the worst of these. The Paypal scammer buys an item, receives it, then pretends he hasn’t. He then files an “item not received” claim with eBay/Paypal. Paypal immediately remove the money from your account — you get no say in that. Unless you are able to prove, with tracking data (or occasionally they will accept documentation such as proof of posting if a Power Seller), that the item was mailed, you have effectively been charged to give it away.

You paid eBay listing fees, eBay final value fees, Paypal fees and then mailed the item. The Paypal Scammer gets a full refund — including postage — from your account. Often times, he leaves you negative or perhaps neutral feedback like this star did for us today:

Paypal Scammer
Buyer: Member ID joey-tribiani-67

Another type we encounter is the one who is a slow paying eBayer, who waits until the day before he gets a non payment strike to pay. Very often, this type start bombarding you with emails asking when it is going to be shipped. “Well, it could have been a week ago if you could have been bothered to pay” is my usual reply. This type then receive the item and immediately ask to return it for spurious reasons. They usually want you to pay. After return and refund, then they often leave you negative or neutral feedback. Why? Because you correctly filed an unpaid item claim. That pissed them off and they had to pay. Of course, you cant leave them bad feedback either.

Some buy the wrong item and want you to take responsibility for it. Another star we encountered was documented here: Ian Kowalski — (ian_ski). He left us this little gem simply because he was stupid and unable to look at a picture:

Poor comms. Doesn’t state that part will not fit all models

Those who argue about postage costs are another breed. Often, they wait until they have actually “bought” something to start with this. One such gem was documented here: Janet Bailey aka jsb190854

Anyone with half a brain, when buying from eBay, checks the postage and handling price, and weighs up the total cost to determine if they are getting value for money. If a sensible person wants to ask about combined postage charges, they do it before the auction ends, not after.

There are always the non payers. We documented one who was too gormless to work out how to pay here: 2009kclarke — another who simply didn’t respond to payment requests is here: leeseat123We have many like them.

None of these people received negative feedback from us — because eBay doesn’t offer that functionality. Many of them left us negative feedback though.

As a seller, what can you do about this? Well, often times, it seems to be the same miscreants over and over again who are stiffing sellers. I think it must be a hobby for some of them. Google is your friend, and sellers are starting to Google. Many sellers are incorporating the blocked bidder lists of others to prevent these people from stiffing them over too. Block them before they bid.

Did you know you can block people buying or bidding on your eBay auctions? eBay do not trumpet the facility but after a dozen or so clicks in the help pages you might find the page. Here, let me make it easy for you, it is here: Block eBay Bidders (You may be prompted to log in to see the page).

    Just to let you know this cheat Luxshana Murugathas
    19 Red Lane, Coventry, CV6 5EE has just skanked me as well under the ebay id walk2uk Ebay just refunded her today from me.
    Has private feed back so if you give her positive feedback which is all you can give her as a seller trying to alert others of her cheating ways then it appears as positive but no one can see what you have written.
    Just saw what stamp seller had written previously and decided that you should all know about and report this cheat.

    Stamp Seller on June 8th, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    This person opens multiple Item Not Received case either through ebay or paypal.

    Did it to 5 sellers including myself (that we know of – maybe others as well) so we all swapped notes and reported her together. ebay NARU’d her.

    Also has a habit of paying for an item three times, unsure of the purpose of this other than the possible hope of getting even more free items.

    Just a warning to anyone who is considering trading with eBay user chaser480 ( Don’t! I had the misfortune of dealing with his very rude and aggressive seller, who would only accept my ‘best offer’ off site (to avoid seller fees, a clear eBay violation). An seller unworthy of your business!

  3. well this guy sold us a xbox which he didnt tell us he had repaired with the xclamp fix. the item was a xmas present so was purchased 6 weeks before christmas but when opened lasted 5 days. he denied having fixed it even though on his feed back there was a purchase for a xclamp kit. asked for a refund due to not telling us this info but basically just said “you can try a dispute you aint getting a refund”. beware this guy is fraudulent ebayer and a just completely lies dont make the mistake we made. remember his name lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114 lukemills0114

  4. I thoroughly agree with naming and shaming those who make Ebay difficult.
    I have started a blog where I also encourage people to report the idiots of the Ebay world., I would be happy to link this page to it.

  5. CALLING users – read here how sellers are getting screwed on ebay. Having already lost money with a buyer in USA who only paid under threat of item strike, then immediately claimed not to have received it [refund issued two weeks later, though I had explained it went by surface and would take 6 weeks!] I decided to no longer offer cheap p & p but would use International Signed for Service which I assumed protected me – not so. Buyer in Germany was away when delivery was made, then posted a case on which I could not contest cos all in GERMAN, and got full refund AND gave me negative feedback. This guy’s id is tronjehagen – BLOCK THIS BUYER AND SEND HIM A MESSAGE!

  6. Chris Cuniah says:

    Another nasty new character on ebay for everyone to beware of and block.

    Sold a great book worth much more for only 99p to this person who promptly left negative feedback on the basis that she found some underlinings in it! What does she expect for 99p?!? Did not even give me a chance to offer to refund the item. Usual ditzy new ebayer with a bad case of itchy finger for the feedback button

  7. bookznprintz says:

    Listed a pamphlet on ebay for 99p. Quite a rare item, although it was a freeby which came with a newspaper; there is a market for these items. The airhead buyer lycan_nic outbid the others, and then decided to leave negative feedback on discovering what the item was. No effort made to contact me first so that I could have refunded the buyer and offered the item to some of the other bidders who DID bother to check my description and knew what they were bidding on.
    AVOID buyers like lycan_nic who bid without carefully checking what they are getting, and are then trigger happy on feedback.
    lycan_nic is a BAD EBAYER and needs to be BLOCKED BY SELLERS!
    Lost my 100% rating due to this airhead.

  8. annie says:

    I would also avoide lyn1811
    bought three reborn dummys from myself for 3.00 plus p&p after having them had an email saying wanted full refund, when i asked why she started being SO abusive swearing threatening all sorts, to be honest quite scary, then ebay looked at her feed back and left it there even though none of it was true…also she left me terrible feed back and score which ment with in only two months i’d lost my chance to sell as they had stopped me from selling, i didn’t have to send her money by she did get the money back off ebay and kept the dummys, i believed because she makes reborns herself that she thought i was compition, when the truth is i’d made them for my reborn and had a few left over.. nightmear buyer after reading her feedback she’s done it to many people, a 100% feedback means nothing as a buyer they could be a nightmear

  9. Abigai says:

    I would like to name and shame eBay seller l-u-s-h for bad conduct. I bought a pair of boots from this company, but accidentally bought two pairs. I immediately messaged the seller and explained and they were more than happy to refund me – which they did. A couple days later I received my shoes in the post as expected. A couple more days later I received the canceled pair! I checked again and they had somehow gone back and taken the money for both pairs even though they originally refunded me for one pair. I messaged them again and they apologised, said it was completely their fault and all I had to do was send the shoes back and they would completely refund me, including postage. That was back in November 2012. It is now February 2013 and despite countless emails, threats of contacting eBay (which I did whom were of no help to me because it was past 45 days.) they still have not refunded me. They have clearly received the shoes on that space of time but still refuse to give me my money. They have been extremely rude and unprofessional towards me. I have given up trying to get my money back, for their mistake. So now I am just trying to warn others against being scammed by them too.

    A total messer who bids on stuff and then doesn’t pay. Four days later, after “selling” them a car, calling them several times, I got this ridiculous reply.


    Typical eBay non-paying wanker.

    Why do these people not know what title caps are? Too stupid because!

    Google the “The Peppermill Pub” in NN11 and Google Maps takes you to some 70’s shithole on some god-forsaken council estate that would be more at home on “Shameless”.

    These people are messers and time wasters. Block the user nadhowkins and niseni2013 today!

  11. Paul Littlebury says:

    teunjacobmax – an ebayer based in holland, who I sent a pair of Chanel sunglasses. After stating he went in Chanel shop who told him they were fake, he initiated paypal hold, then demanded return of payment, but unwilling to send return. Asides from fact no shop would ever do that casually, for fear of litigation.

    I asked for proof of his assertion which two weeks later he never provided. He then gave some bull about his wife returning the wrong item. he said he could prove delivery. Again nothing provided. He is playing a delaying game as well as hoping he will get to keep the glasses for free. Too much behaviour like this on ebay.

  12. Kaylee says:

    I thought you should know about terrytibbs-2009 he bought 2 pairs of trousers from me in Sept last year and insisted he didn’t receive them…. Ebay made me refund him and funnily enough, even though he never got them, hes managed to sell them again on ebay! He must be magical! Made sure he left it long enough before reselling that I couldn’t get what he owes me though…. Really nice guy. Just look at negative feedback he’s left for quite alot of people… Must of done it loads but is still allowed to be on ebay!! Terrible terrible immoral ‘person’.

  14. megan says:

    seller sells rubbish items. brought item when recived was cheap and never worked. so due to this and as had lost this money I left negative feedback then find out its been removed, by e bay? and to why? did not return as would cost me half the purchase price.

  15. Adonis says:

    Ladies and gentleman, beware of walshydon1987 (97.9%) who’s name is Mr Beau Walsh, living on 20 Highstone Lane, Wardgreen, Barnsley, South Yorkshire S706sw. He bidded on my car from day one, obviously looking at my car everyday as he outbid everyone day by day. Yet, when he became the winner, he vanished or died (I hope he did). No replies to any of my messages; I checked his feedback, he seems like a low life chav who buys everything under the £0.99 margin. AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS! Now I need to wait for 4 days until I can file an unpaid item against the idiot. I hope he dies of cancer, and I hope everyone else who bid with no intention on buying a vehicle, dies in the worst possible way!

    Avoid! 100% positive feedback, but many comments left about non-payment. She won a number of my items and I contacted her about combining postage. She replied and agreed to the new price, then has disappeared. She’s also got bids on two other items of mine. I don’t suppose I’ll get the cash for them either.

    Why do they bid on things they have no intention of buying? 🙁

    May be genuine, but we had an ‘item not received’ issue and had to send another with tracking.

    To be on the safe side, we recommend sellers use only tracked delivery with this buyer. Or simply block to err on the side of caution.

  20. LOL says:

    Hi all,

    This must be one of the best excuses I have ever seen in my time on eBay.

    I am so sorry but I am not going to be able to pay for this item, I had my purse stolen this afternoon complete with cards and all my money has been taken out of my bank account 🙁 it is going to take a week or so to sort it all out so could you possibly relist the item so sorry for messing you around.
    Kind regards

    My Reply:


    Sorry to hear about this unfortunate event.

    It isn’t a problem for me to save this dress until you get sorted out. I don’t mind waiting for you to get sorted, and when you do you can pay me then.

    Just email me when you have the funds to pay.

    Kind regards

    Her Reply:

    Thank you for the kind offer, but it is going to be a few weeks and I purchased the skirt to wear for a christening on Sunday, I would be grateful if you could possibly relist the item so sorry.

    My final Reply:

    Consider it done.

    Don’t forget to check out this website:

    This is quite a good site.

    As polite as you have been, your excuse is still one of the best I’ve heard in a long time.

    Enjoy your Christening – I guess you’ll be welching out of buying a round in the pub afterwards.

    Buyer Id 2013macmuse needs to be thrown off ebay.
    Buys expensive speakers and amplifiers, but rarely pays.has upset at lease 7 other sellers this year, that I know of…They left positive feedback with all their negative comments about this seller in the feedback…some of their feedback comments were censored by ebay, but not before i saw some of them..
    In short this person or persons (as I have had correspondance from mother,son and I think the account owner name is the father, but thet say the son’s friend is the one who wants the amps…so says the son…but who really knows who wants what as their emails are a confusing mess)
    Anyway this account bought 2 power amps off me for $3000 total,said they’d pay for one straight away and the other a few weeks later becuse money is tight… then they changed mind 3 days later and wanted a different intergrated amp model but only one of them for 1500..but hang on I’m going to get charged ebay fees at $3000 !!…and then I see they are buying 4 other amplifiers from other sellers in the same week!!!..needless to say i put in a non paying bidder form..avoid at all costs!!

    Ommzaza – still up to the same tricks as someone has highlighted above a year ago. Won 2 of my items, didn’t pay or make contact, then I realised she’s in the US and I state clearly that I only ship to UK. She sent me messages slating my postage charges, trying to bully me into shipping to the US, aggressively pushing for ‘1 more good reason’ as to why I don’t. She then declined both my requests to cancel transaction. It then seemed like she had agreed to cancel transaction so I was relieved, until 1 day later I received another 3 messages harassing me and trying to get me to deliver to her. She hasn’t made any attempt to pay however. I see she does this regularly, specifically targeting uk sellers. If you study her positive feedback, the majority of UK feedback she has had deleted, the few that still exist highlight the same issue. I’m sure this isn’t over for me yet so would definitely recommend blocking her before you are on the receiving end of her bullying!!

    This lady is a seller. She will send you an item that looks nothing like the picture and then when you send it back she will just say she hasn’t received it and doesn’t respond to your e-mails. She does not give you a refund, therefore takes your money! BEWARE. Her feedback is positive but it must be all fake. You will lose a lot of money!

    This buyer: “joycsells” bid on my gift card auction, she saw that I had made a shipping error, offered free shipping in the title, then $2 dollar shipping in the body of the auction. She bid anyway and admitted it, then she paid and saw the shipping charge and still paid. Not once did she message me, asking me a question. After the auction was closed she demanded that I email the code. When I said no, she asked for a shipping refund i said, but the main focus was getting the code emailed. I refunded her money and then after and only after she herself received a negative feedfback, did she leave me a negative feedback never mentioning that it was all over me not emailing the code.

    He is selling stuff and not sending it but something much much cheaper, a fraction of the price, Not even the same product. He is also trying to get you to buy from him directly instead of using Ebay.
    Feedback is all positive to but all fake.
