glutton for punishment.......eBay....AGAIN !!!

on Mon Mar 20 2017, 15:30
i bought this on Saturday 18th of this month


if you look at the description it mentions needing a battery....yeh right Mad ... we all know what that means and if you look at the picture
the 10, 11, and 1 o'clock markers look damaged like you would get from acid/leaking battery..they have lost definition at the front

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272595610635?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

anyway......it was IMO a calculated risk and if the movement was beyond repair i have a good spare that could be used.........its a very nice and quite rare watch so worth the effort i feel.
it was "buy it now" so paid instantly
on sunday evening i hadn't heard anything form the seller........no big deal, but i had a nosey at what other stuff they were selling and lo and behold they were selling this Shocked



this time for £139 then reduced to £125

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seiko-Mens-Tachtymeter-stainless-steel-7T32-watch-/272596562737?hash=item3f78057331%3Ag%3AINMAAOSwuxFYyo9o&nma=true&si=j6rUIbCb3y3KlUZcrukqO%252F2JDy8%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

i contacted them right away asking what the hell was going on and received this answer this morning:

"Hi there. Sorry I have just logged in and seen your messages! Basically I am selling this for my father and wasn t expecting the bidding wars which have took place over the last few days. You bought it sat night and I have literally had approx 30 people messaging me wanting to buy the item. Someone offered £125.00 which is a lot more than it sold for. They messaged me while the item was still live asking me to take down for £125.00 however it sold literally seconds after I had posted it. I am really sorry about all this but have decided to relist completely and get the best price. This is not something I normally do but wasn t expecting such interest to be honest. I will log into paypal and do full refund for you now. Sorry once again. There is no malice in this just want best price for my dad. Thanks again."

thing is, if thats true why didnt the ones that wanted to buy it not just pay £65 like me?....nobody would offer more than a buy it now price Rolling Eyes

next this..... i know its relisted again... Neutral

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seiko-Mens-Tachtymeter-stainless-steel-7T32-watch-/272595743228?hash=item3f77f8f1fc%3Ag%3AINMAAOSwuxFYyo9o&nma=true&si=j6rUIbCb3y3KlUZcrukqO%252F2JDy8%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

there was no refund Mad
i pointed out that i had bought the watch fair and square and got this reply:

"I am really sorry about all this. I am literally getting bombarded with messages/offers every time I log in here. I should have originally listed as an auction but never expected the watch to sell in seconds so didn't have the time to change the format. I can fully refund now and apologise for this mess. Thank you for your offer once again. "


i have pointed out that i did not make an offer, i have actually bought the watch and that what they are doing is greedy and will back fire as £65 for a non running watch is a good price if they sell it for more they buyer is going to be unhappy and either want a refund or a partial refund and they will probably end up with less than i paid.....and no still no refund or reply Mad
i dont often leave bad feedback for people, but there are limits...........i really hope it affects their future sales as that is the worst kind of behaviour IMHHO

I guess you are going to blame me for last nights purchase ?? Razz

I thought ebay was set up to protect seller and buyer it seems to be on the side of the seller a lot of the time .

truth is eBay wont or cant enforce its rules a lot of the time, a purchase on ebay is a legaly binding contact for the seller and the buyer, but they wont enforce the law, ebat should have stepped in and told the seller : sorry but you have sold the watch to this person so just send it

That's terrible & I think negative feedback should be given unless the seller honours the sale & posts the watch. EBay should take a more active role when this type of behaviour is brought to their attention. Evil or Very Mad

I hope this gets sorted quickly one way or another.

I will though be looking forward to hearing a bit more about the other "cracker" you purchased. Very Happy

feedback was left........

" bought the watch, took my money then relisted, greedy and immoral disgraceful "

i think that makes the point.....i would have left more but you only get so many characters to use sadly

Well, he had the chance to sort matters out but didn't. You also have his messages where he admits to what he had done as back up.

The seller having a few hundred transactions / feedback should have valued his reputation higher than the difference in price he got for the watch. If I had sold something for someone too cheaply I would be making up the price difference myself as it had been my error. Embarassed
