Default Ebay Seller Nonsense - advice needed

Won an auction last night for around $60 got the following sent directly to my email and not thru ebay.

Seller has minimal feedback, so I am not all that surprised by the stupidity.

Seller is CHISOX2005

Hello,
I am sorry to inform you of this but this card has been sold to another buyer. I have not yet sent the card out, so I am willing to tell him that I have to cancel the deal if you are willing to purchase the card. I sold it to him at a price of $120. If you can top that I will award you the card. If you do want the card let me know asap as it has to get sent out soon. I will refund the $ that you sent me through ebay and you can send $(if you are willing to top $120) to this email address.
If I recieve the money from you by tomorrow at 4 PM Eastern Time I will ship the card to you the same day and email you the tracking and insurance info. Let me know if this is what you would like to do.


Have called ebay and they say they will issue a warning
but they dont even want me to forward the above as it wasnt sent thru ebay.

Obviously I cant force the seller to put my item in the mail

Man that's messed up. And I'd bet there's no other buyer.

Here should be your response.

Dear Idiot-
Please kill yourself but before you do please have the balls to smack your father for not wearing a condom before he impregnated your mother as 2 complete morons should never procreate.

Love,
Buyer

Or you can just forward the message to Ebay and let them take care of it.
Leave a negative stating what he was doing.

Also please name this windowlicker.

thanks,

The World.

Now, my opinion is that some people throw out those negatives a little too easily, but with this seller, I'd leave negative feedback, and sign up for every sports card forum on the internet, and post about him. I'd hire people to translate for me, so I could even post to foreign sports card forums.

Pure Scum.

Seriously though,
should I bother messaging the seller and telling him I have reported him and
that he should expect appropriate feedback if the item is not received ...
or just get my refund, leave the neg, and walk away?

This...just neg bomb the moron and move on. I'm guessing the card will be back up for sale in no time.

I would let him know I reported him, explain it's a contract, since I'm guessing you hold some hope he'll send out the card....but yeah since it's probably not going to happen I'd probably just skip to the negative.

Now that I think about it...
since I have already called ebay to explain the situation AND
reported it thru the automated system for "item being sold off ebay"
I have lost whatever leverage I may have had to get him to send.

Item was paid for within 3 minutes of auction ending last night.

I would still contact him if it is a card you really want. No harm in trying

Que sera sera :shrug:

I sent him this.

You can either refund me or send the item.
I have already reported you to ebay for both the refusal to complete the transaction and for asking for additional payment outside ebay.


I have also found a photobucket account username CHISOX2005 with a bunch of baseball card pics,
but am not 100% certain its the same person
Suggest people use caution if they come across this person trying to trade.

Could be a 3rd party scam. I would have handled it like this:

Message him through eBay, say you got some weird email claiming to be him and ask if he really wants you to pay >$120. If he says, "no" the card is yours and you should report the email. If he says, "yes", forward his eBay response to eBay and report him.

I sent him a message asking if the buyer paid yet, because I'd give him $150 for it..curious to see his answer

The message the email came from is the same as the one shown in my paypal receipt
The message states that additional paypal payment should be sent to "this email address".
As there was no additional address,"this email address" must mean the one that sent me the email.

I do see how your method could have been useful to both get him to reply thru ebay,
and to give him a chance to rethink his stupidity without attacking him.

That must be really annoying man. I can't believe someone would ask for almost twice as much as the card. Never buy from someone with 12 feedback.

Ive bought from sellers who had less feedback.
In 4-5 years of ebay, I've only not received the item ONCE, and
That was a red refractor I won at auction for 99 cents with free shipping.

I HAVE had to file a couple claims to get item in the mail.
And on one occasion after getting a refund,
item showed up 9 weeks after date of purchase (no tracking)

In the end, I have Paypal protection (plus! whatever that means lol)
AND pay for every ebay purchase with credit card.
So, one way or another, I will be made whole.

The stupidity of this situation and simply having to deal with it is annoying though.

---------

Sent seller a message in the format XL5 suggested.
Seller has not responded to that or to my email, nor has he refunded me.

So it looks like I'm going to have to wait a while, then file paypal claim, then wait a little longer to get refund, then give him a neg stating he sent email refusing to send.

here is his response::::

The buyer recieved a weird email from some hack or something and I think spooked him out. How would I go about selling it to you at that.
