I had a strange situation happen a couple of months back, and by strange I mean I got screwed.

Sold a small lot of Seated Dimes, simple G-VG coins in consecutive dates that were basically just filler coins for someone building a set.

Long story short, I used the Ebay postage printer (which I love, usually) printed out my label, slapped it on a padded mailer and sent the little ones to their new home.

A week later, buyer contacted me saying they never got the coins. I checked my account center, and sure enough it shows they were delivered 3 days after shipping them out. They opened a dispute with Ebay, and I provided as much info as I could. When I told both the buyer and Ebay the address they were shipped to, buyer claimed the address was wrong. Ebay confirmed that his address on file was not the one that was printed from the EBAY POSTAGE CENTER. Coins got lost in a black hole (yeah right), Ebay sided with buyer, and I lost the coins, final value fee and shipping, about $200 total.

Did the buyer somehow change his address after I printed label and Ebay doesnt track this?


The buyer is supposed to keep his confirmed address up to date, looks like the buyer has found a loop hole. Should look into getting collectible insurance, USPS insurance is a joke.

The one thing I am going to say is that as a seller, be careful. I have had buyers take advantage of me and claim that the camera I sent never arrived. I have CLEAR proof that it did, but they suggest that the camera was not in the box that arrived. Without really listening to me, eBay gave the guy a complete refund meaning I lost my money and my camera. Sometimes the buyer protection on eBay goes a little far.

You've been hacked. Seriously.

Change your eBay, PayPal and ISP/E-mail passwords now! Also, check your bank and credit card statements to see if anything strange shows up.

This happened to me recently, but it had a legit address. Someone was also filling up my eBay shopping cart with thousands of dollars of computer hardware! Luckily , they only hacked my eBay password, and not my PayPal password, so they were not able to buy anything.

General question. Why do some seller's use a reserve in auctions? Why not just make that the minimum bid? Just seems like sellers are playing games and certainly makes me much less inclined to bid in that auction.

When you think about it, auctions themselves are sort of a game, with an opportunity to get an item cheap or end up really overpaying for an item because of the whole competition angle.

It just turns me off from bidding on those auctions. I think the worst message I can get on ebay is you are the high bidder, but the reserve has not been met. I usually just stop right there.

When to cancel a bid & block the buyer.Just wondering because I have a buyer with the high bid that has left 7 neutral/negs out of 141 total fb left.Plus a lot of positives with stuff like "Had dings but I'll let it slide."

Also most of the replies said he failed to contact them before leaving fb.

Getting tired of losing auctions to what is most likely people using sniping software. I figured if I can't beat them I might as well join them. Any recommendations as to what are some of the better sniping tools?
