i have yet another rip off experience on eBay. and as a seller, we do not pay any fee to eBay, and consequently, i feel, eBay do not extend as much assistance when we are scammed by sellers. i am beginning to see ebay as shelter for scammers. i know not all of them are crooks. but really, this is how i am beginning to feel. fair or not, i no longer go to ebay for anything. i told them repeatedly, that if they do not increase protection for buyers, they will loose them. and without buyers, there are no sellers. but now that ebay is a commercial monster that it is, it is only interested in the bottom line, like all large corporate america. and since payers are sellers, we, buyers, are left to our own devices. how many times have we heard so and so have lost THOUSANDS on ebay and they just have to live with it? because sellers have closed their ebay account, PO box address un-trace-able, email has been shut down, and ebay wave their hands and said it is not our duty to follow through this as long as they pay us money? where is DUTY OF CARE? isn't that a concept that we often heard legally? what happened to that? my latest experience was with MyImporters.com who used to have their own website, and is now completely hosted by ebay. a transaction for a georgian bed was cancelled in february 2006 due to transport difficulties, and a refund was never made. i kept asking for proof of refund when they claimed refund was made, and have given them all the documentations i have to show that no refund was ever made. since purchase was made in december 2005 i am on my own, ebay washed their hands, and i have lost over $1000. their email address no longer works, PO box address is useless, and they never answer my calls. my attorney had send them letter of demands to no avail. i am now planning to put their name in the FBI list of internet fraud. can any of you tell me where it is to go to do this? thanks!
