Default Dear Lord Ebay Sucks!

So .... I buy a card on Feb. 21, and pay for the card Feb. 21. I get a DC from the seller, and the card is supposed to arrive on Feb. 25. Feb. 25 comes, and the DC info says that the card was returned to the sender. I contact the seller, and he has no idea what is going on [understandable] and I tell him when he gets the card back, just mail it to me again - no need for a refund, because I want the card.

Fast forward a month, and a few failed attempts at contacting him, and I open a case. Ebay sends me some form letter saying that the seller has added new information. The "new" information is the same tracking number that says the item was returned to sender on Feb. 25. I respond, saying as such, and also contact the seller - again. I hear nothing, so I escalate it.

Then today, I get this brilliant response from Ebay:

Quote:
Decision:
This case has been decided in the seller's favor.

Comments:
You didn't provide a valid shipping address when you bought the item.
Excuse me?!?! I paid via paypal. My paypal address is a CONFIRMED address. I have bought 48 items in the last 60 days from Ebay. I have paid for all of them via paypal - miraculously, 47 have showed up at my address

I just called Ebay to appeal, and to explain to the customer service rep how stupid their decision is. Lets see how far this gets me.

I mean, its only a $10 + $3 shipping item, but still - the douchebaggery of Ebay never stops amazing me. Failure to provide valid mailing address Really #@#@#@#@#@#@#@s?

Wow I bet the guy wrote the addy wrong. Seems you gave it more than enough time for the card to get back to the guy. Hope ebay/paypal same people figure it out.

I asked the woman - "How can you possibly give this as an answer when I have a confirmed mailing address with Paypal and only use Paypal to pay? Had he shipped with Paypal, he wouldnt have had any problems" - Her answer was; "I need to look into this, it seems like it would be very frustrating for you."

Well no #@#@#@#@ - thanks for that insight

Well how about that, I won my appeal

I still will not take back my original comment, but this particular person certainly did not suck

I am beyond mildly shocked that she called back within 15 minutes or so.

Sounds like someone got a dose of common sense for lunch. Glad it was found in your favor.

Yeah, the woman I spoke to was great actually - it was just the initial response that had me so PO'd. Again, it was only $13, but hell, its my $13.
