What problems have you had that annoyed you, mad you really mad, screwed you over etc etc etc? Of course we all have some good Ebay sells but I want to hear about your bad ones.<br><br>
I ordered an Airsoft gun from TrinityToys on Ebay last wensday. I have yet to receive it when it is suppose to be about 3day shipping. Monday I requested the tracking number and I havent got a reply. I am annoyed with this greatly, I just gave up on waiting for it to come in. If it doesnt come today, they are getting a nice little call from me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Mad">

No problems, just shop smart, look at their feedback, and read all details. Ebay should never fail you.

A buyer bought my PSP and games etc, more than a week ago. He pays with Money Order and they require you ship their item first before they pay, so they can supposly check the tracking number of their item is actually shipping. Ya awesome but payment should have arrived on october 31st, anyone selling, make it paypal only, it's way better. I am at the limit of calling the police, I want my $300.

So far I havent had any problems with ebay,<br>
I mostly buy Laserdiscs,<br>
when they were in production, Laserdiscs would retail from £20 upto £120 for Boxsets (T2, Aliens, Indiana Jones ect.) a bit pricey for me at the time!<br><br>
I pick them up now for a few pounds each,<br>
I dont bother with DVD`s the sound quality seems better from Laserdisc as the Audio isnt compressed. you can also pick up films that are not on DVD yet too!<br><br>
I have bought an Amplifer and Center Speaker with no problems either<br>
I havent a Paypal account and pay with Cheques I get printed at the bank, takes a little longer for funds to clear but I dont mind the wait..<br><br>
Always look at thier feedback!!!

I've purchased ALOT off EBAY. Only once have I had a bad experience. I ordered the entire Babylon 5 TV series from a seller from the UK. It was a few hundred bucks at the time. The idiot shipped it post. From tracking information, I see it made it onto a ship. Was never seen again.<br><br>
I NEVER buy or sell overseas. You have no (or extremely difficult) recourse in the event of a scam/shipping failure.

A couple weeks ago I ordered a DVD set on ebay........the next day i find out that the seller's account has been deleted and my "bid has been cancelled". Thanks ebay! Now I can't find out who even sold it to me!! Luckily I managed to find the seller's email message and although he didn't respond, I got the item in the end. <br />
<br />
Why couldn't ebay cancel my bid and delete the seller's account <i>before</i> I fricken bid on it <i>and</i>pay for it!!?

Last time(around 2months ago), I bought a rare Cedar Mill Celeron 3.33Ghz for $55, after I mailed the money order(can't use paypal), the seller never answered any question and his account was deleted after 3days...

I get way more nervious selling stuff on ebay than I do buying stuff. My one problem with ebay is they won't erase a relalatory neg feedback for free. I recieved a neg feedback after recieving a headset with a broken mic. I emailed the people and they said they wouldn't refund my $20 shipping only the $10 that my bid was. It only cost $35 to remove the neg feedback...money hungry jerks!

The steps i've taken after I lost 60 dollars of DVDs is.<br />
<br />
Don't just wait until they pay you, wait until you get it in your bank account.<br />
<br />
I've had people pay me, receive the item, file a complaint to paypal, and paypal takes my money and gives it back to them! This happened twice, and paypal allowed it each time, and the buyer got to keep my item.<br />
<br />
These were legit items, that were in perfect working order. The complaints were pretty much all lies.
