Seller cheated me, need advice
Posted 20 August 2003 - 11:24 PM
1) Her auction said she only charges actual shipping prices. Charged $5 for a tiny ring at the end of auction. You can sent it priority for $3.85 or padded mailer cheaper. I'm not complaining about $5, but a 2-3 oz ring doesn't cost $5 to ship. Not a very honest statement on her part.
2) I miss calculated total owed her. I sent $0.85 too much without her notifying me + refunding the difference -OR- notifying me that $0.45 was short and I needed to pay extra for insurance. I assumed I paid enough for insurance. She didn't purchase it and pocketed my $0.85.
I emailed her several days ago. She said she would refund the overpayment, but NEVER did. Another lie. I asked if she purchased delivery confirmation, no answer. Haven't heard from her since.
The seller refuses to accept responsiblity for lost packages and won't refund at least the bid price. I paid with paypal using a credit card. Should I go ahead a file a chargeback? Also, should I file something with ebay? I must act fast because 30 days is almost up. I never had a package lost in the mail, so I doubt this is the 1st. Do you think something suspicious is going on?

Sorry to hear of your misery. If you feel you've been cheated or swindled I would give the person one more chance to make it right, but tell them what you intend to do.
Now, what I really want to know is it a
14 carat ruby! That's like princess jewelry
I hope it all ends well for you

Sorry to hear about your bad transaction. Yes, I would file with ebay, Paypal (must be done within 30 days) and contact your credit card company and put in a dispute. From my past experiences my credit card always refunded me my money.
A reputable seller would at least email you back and try to resolve the problem, since the seller isn't cooperating it is your only choice.

I think that you should try contacting the seller 2 more times. One asking if they're still breathing and the other one saying that you're fed up and if they don't rectify the matter within the week you will leave negative fdbck, contact PayPal and eBay. If the seller is a square trader, contact them too. If you're buying jewelry on line, watch out for salstreasures. I know someone who bought something from him and wound up being a ring on hsn.com selling for $15 NOT in the hundreds.
