I am sorry, but I have to get this out. I have had it with dealing with insane people on Ebay! I bought an item of clothing from a lady on ebay two days ago. She also lives in NYC, so I asked if I could arrange local pick up. I always do this for my buyers, no questions asked. The seller began by wrtiting back saying local pick up was out of the question and said if I didn't pay, she would report me to ebay. She used all sorts of personal excuses as to why I could not pick up. She also claimed that she lives in a horrible neighborhood in the Bronx, it was the only rent she could afford and she didn't suggest I pick up as the neighborhood was really dangerous (?). I told her this was a bit annoying, as I always allow my buyers to pick up, but I wanted the item and I would pay via Paypal. This is ALLL I said. I am poliet, passive person. I paid her via Paypal. That was it. This started a chain reaction of emails. She sent me 9 subsequent emails. In the 9 emails she threatened to report me to ebay, twice threatened to report me to the local police, said not to mess with her because her best friend was a VP for Ebay, her dad was a judge and her husband was a fraud lawyer. She called me a horrible person, wished "bad karma" upon me, accused me of not working for a living (?), and then called me a "*****" and to "get the hell out of" her life. She also divulged an enormous amount of personal information which I did not ask for, nor need to know. All of this because I asked for a local pick up. So after I paid in FULL via Paypal, I did a google on her name. (okay, now you are thinking I'm a stalker, but I was just so curious as to what makes a person act so inappropriately!!) Turns out she has a public blog spot. I am positive this is her for several reasons- the main one being she took pictures of the item on her sofa, and the same sofa is pictured on her blog spot! So, it turns out she lives within 5 BLOCKS of my apartment in a 24 hour doorman building. Complete liar! This woman is totally insane. Why couldn't I have just picked up the item from her doorman? AND-I don't know where and when she thought it was appropriate to repeatedly email me with all sorts of personal information, threaten me, and call me profain names simply because I asked for a local pick up! Has anyone else had and experience like this?
