Blocked bidder question?

  1. Megs and I welcomed our baby boy earlier this month and wanted to share the news with the TPF community. Come say hello to Baby Vaughn!

  1. Hi! I blocked this one bidder a few months back and also checked the box in buyer requirements that she cannot contact me if she is on my blocked list. I blocked her because she constantly wanted me to lower my price every time I added a new item she was interested in. Also, because I read her feedback she left for sellers and she seems very picky and not very nice. Well, I started listing today and I get a message from her. She wants me to lower the price on one item and take it off eBay and pay through PayPal goods. How was she able to contact me? I even checked my blocked buyer list and she is on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
     
  2. Are you sure it's the exact name ID? Is there a chance she opened a new but similar ID?
     
  3. It is the exact same one.
     
  4. No idea how it happened. Unless this is one of those cases where if they've already contacted you prior to being blocked, they're still able to contact.

    Maybe someone else might be able to confirm or deny.
     
  5. Thanks! Do you know if she would be able to purchase something through BIN?
     
  6. I don't think so. I believe it's only because of previous contact that she was able to contact but if she tries to BIN, I bleieve she'll be blocked.

    Can you call ebay to verify?
     
  7. I once asked this of ebay, although it was quite some time ago.

    I was told that if members contact you prior to being blocked then they can continue to do so even after you have blocked them and their messages.

    So she will still be able to message you but won't be able to buy from you.

    The very best thing you can do is just completely ignore her. Don't read her messages, don't respond. One day she will get bored and go away.
     
  8. I would report her for asking you to take the sale off eBay, it might get her account suspended.
     
  9. They might suspend a seller for doing that, but probably not a buyer in the buyer centric climate not the site.
