So I ordered this chain from an ebay scammer, which had decent feedback and partly because the chain in question was very low cost but mostly because they offered PRIORITY MAIL SHIPPING! :censored: :censored: :mad:

Well, 12 days into my 2-5 days shipping wait I e-mailed said clowns and they send me a form letter about how they are soooo busy that they are having trouble filling orders fast enough! BOO FRICKIN' HOO! :cry:

HIRE SOME MORE EMPLOYEES YA FRIGGIN' CHEAPSKATES!!!!!!!!!!!!! :devilish:

14 days into my 2-5 day shipping wait I get the same e-mail as the first......

I told them I wanted a.) an extra 10' length of chain, (I bought two) b.) a refund, or c.) I start a claim with PayPal.

I started a claim with PayPal just in case. :devilish: :LOL:

O.K., I'm feeling a little better now.

I know where you're comin from, Joe. Some sellers are just so slow to ship. Makes you want to leave some bad feed, but then you can pretty much count on getting some in return. I think the whole feedback thing is completely flawed. As a seller, I try to ship same day or next business day if at all possible. I just wish the sellers I buy from would do the same...or at least ship the same week. I'm still waiting for a couple rear 1/4 windows for my car.....I bought them in 2002.

Ebay sellers

I know were your comming from Joe.I've sold on bidville,bidbay,ebay,and yes even Yahoo for years.The worst sellers I have ever seen are in Ebay.I've heard every lame excuse you can imagine.I've been double charged twice,and completely ripped off once.I've waited weeks to get items from people.My biggest complaint is shipping.One out of 5 ship items out on time
I shipped there products out within one day.I allways use priority mail unless they requested a different service.I always request a money order this saves alot of problems.Personal checks,or even cash always seem to get lost.I have had only one bad feedback in almost 3 years.That was over a personal check.It refused to clear before my limit of 10 days. I emailed this woman several times.When it did finaly clear I shipped her item out with a note saying I was sorry for the delay,and offered her a refound.It didn't help I still got a black mark.

This guy is definitely getting bad feedback. I don't care if he tries to "return the favor", I won't be blackmailed that way....so what if my 100% positive gets a negative or neutral? Not like my employment depends on eBay.

Anyhow, I ordered some #42 chain, since it supposed to fit (or is the equivalent of) #415....was going to turn everyone on to this inexpensive outlet for chain for our bikes after I tested one....10' of it for 7 dollars!

Anyhow, not only will I not turn anyone onto this "great source" for chains, I'll let him know he blew it by being such a pile. :LOL:

I hate it when the ebayer sellers have a great deal on a product but then charge you 20 times what the shipping should cost...

300 buyers gathered together can be a powerful force...link the seller to this topic & threaten to expose him here.

another resourse

Hi Joe,
Just in case that you didn't know this people.There was a law passed when I was realy young.There was a company that advertised in the back of comic books.Send us a dime,and you will get like 100 plastic soldiers.They ripped enough people off for one thin dime.That it was estimated they were a million dollar scam.The federal goverment couldn't do much so people got togiether.They got a new law passed.There is no minimum amount when it comes to mail fraude.It is also punished by a minimum of 5 years in federal prison.I'm not sure about all the details,but I've emailed this to several sellers.I usualy get a very good response on recieving my Items when there is a hold up.If that dosn't work one report,and a visit form there local Sheriff.That realy gets things going :D

wait...you were young? :LOL:

i agree that being a tough consumer is the only way to go...i read once that over 25% of all retail transactions in the united states end with overall customer dis-satisfaction, & less than 25% of those bad deals are acted on by the consumer.

laws are in place & should be used more often.
