Default Thief/criminal eBay seller: Mind-yurown-bidness

Shipped me a parcel that felt full, with extra tape on all sides. When I opened, there was an empty plastic deliberatly placed there. When I started a claim on eBay, seller responded saying I was lying. Left him a brutal negative, but providing fair warning here as well.

Total scumbag be warned.

Sorry you're out the money, but seems strange a seller who had 100 percent feedback up until now would go to all that trouble for a lousy 80 bucks. I think you will both be covered under Ebay's seller/buyer protection system, but don't recall the specifics when it shows a package was actually delivered to the correct address, but the buyer still claims he didn't receive it. I think you're credibility was probably hurt as far as the seller was concerned by your June 17th feedback. He probably assumed as a result youre just making something up, as obviously you assume the same of him. Maybe neither of you are lying and it's just some sort of odd mixup.

The seller has been on ebay for 12 years with no negs. It's always possible someone tampered with the package. The extra tape on all sides might be evidence of that. The post office should be able to trace a photograph of the package from the sorting facility.

I have received things from the post office that was nearly open. depending on what city it passes through, they have some very dishonest employees, like all companies. It sounds like the package was opened, Item removed and re-sealed. Was it insured? They usually won't mess with things that are insured for the obvious reason.

If it had tracking, it should automatically be insured for $50.

We had a mail lady in a nearby town that was caught selling $500.00 worth of cards that she took out of bubble mailer, so not everyone at the post office is totally trustworthy.
