Question about eBay Auctions

1 Answer

Hey so i need to know if this deal is lidjet please read what the seller has told me about going thro u to ship me a vhicle. i think its a scam. what do u think here is what he said( I will have the car shipped from AK by an US Air Force cargo plane so there won't be any additional shipping costs. Also I will arrange for a truck to transport the car to your home address or, if you like, you can pick it up from the nearest airport in your area. The shipping will take 6-8 days, depending on your location.Shipping will be door to door,to your home address,somebody must be home when the car arrives to sign for the reception.The car will arrive with all the papers and documents required for registration and the keys. The clear title and the bill of sale will be already signed by me. The payment will be done through eBay.You will send the money to eBay and as soon as the payment is confirmed they will notify me to proceed with the shipping. I will ship the car, you will receive it and you will have 5 days for inspection, both the car and the paperwork and the option to accept or reject the car.The inspection time period will begin as soon as you sign for receiving the car at your requested address.During all this time eBay will hold the money into a trust account.So, this is not a blind transaction,you can see the car before decided to buy it.If you are satisfied with the car and decide to keep it you inform eBay about this and they will release the money to me. If the car is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the car will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for the both of us.Please take in to consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the car and make sure everything is as agreed. If you agree with these terms and you have the money, send me your full name and the address where you want the car to be delivered to and I will initiate the transaction with eBay. You will receive all the transaction details from them. I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible) what do u think ????

I think you should contact ebay and find out if they infact hold money, and are they aware of this type of transaction. The answer doesnt make sense to me I would also think its a scam, but ebay should be the ones to let you know for sure. Besides if a third party was holding my money I'd like to know exactly where, and how long it would take to get it back if the deal falls thru.

I want to bye a car but is telling me to put the money on a prepay card and I want to no if u really have the car for sell and and y can I put the money on paypal

check if the seller will accept paypal as a pay method
remember private sales can be very dodgy and you could be in for a scam
MY earnest advice is , if you cannot inspect the car personally, view the sellers authority or ownership of the vehicle, personally pay cash , then walk away from the deal
I say this because this is what happens
the seller puts the car up for sale -- pretty pictures, plenty of glowing praise words, low mileage, regular service etc
car is is still incumbent to a bank or finance company-- you pay the seller who disappears with your cash and the finance institution comes and repossess the car for non payment
he owns the car but when you take possession , you find that the transmission needs work, the engine misses, been submerged -- pure lemon
Think very seriously when dealing privately and handing over big money

I want to give feedback to a seller on my paypal account

How to leave feedback the RIGHT way 18af_7.jpg?set_id=81 Published by mutti74 October 26, 2013 . 14K Views . 2 Comments . 79 Votes So you finally gave in and bought something on ebay? WAY TO GO! Welcome to the world of endless deals and bargains!
Are you happy with your purchase?
Answer: YES! I love it!
Awesome, now lets let the seller know. The easiest way to leave feedback is to simply go back to the page of the actual item. Either type in the item number and click search OR go to MY EBAY and look under "All Buying" under "Won" and click on the item.
Once you get to the page, look towards the top, it'll say LEAVE FEEDBACK, simply click on that and Voi'La you are ready to leave feedback.
Since you are happy with your purchase, rate POSITIVE and write you comments in, such as: "Fast shipping, very happy with purchase." or "Great product, excellent communication!"
We are not done yet, Ebay has integrated a STAR system to rate sellers. You can rate 1-5 stars on "Item as described", "Communication", "Shipping Time" and "Shipping & Handling Charges".
Here is a tip about shipping and handling charges. Sometimes you may not be happy with those charges, KEEP ON MIND: Whatever you bought could have been shipped from the opposite side of the country (or even from another country), so OF COURSE they may be higher than having it sent from 1 end of a state to the other hand!! Those actual shipping charges are out of sellers hands.
All set with your rating? Simply leave feedback and DONE! Easy, fast and simple.
Now......a STRONG REMINDER. I often browse through ebay guides and reviews and TOO MANY buyers mistaken this area for contacting the sellers. This REVIEW and GUIDE area has NOTHING TO DO with leaving feedback or communicating with sellers!!!!! Follow the above steps to properly leave feedback.
What if you are not happy? Follow the above steps to get to your items page and click on (right side of page) CONTACT seller and email them. Whether it is a breakage or the item has not arrived yet. Give the seller some time to resolve the issue and to respond back before leaving neutral or negative feedback. I am a seller myself, as well as buyer. I ONLY result in leaving neutral or negative feedback if:
A: I have a non-paying bidder (new ebay rules NO LONGER permit sellers leaving negative feedback to non-paying bidders, so sellers really have no way of warning others anymore)
B: I bought something, it arrived broken or did not arrive at all, and the seller NEVER responded to NUMEROUS emails over a 2 week period, plenty of time to respond and rectify.
C: The seller told me basically something like "oh well, not my problem".
IF the seller responds and rectifies the mishap by either refunding money or sending out a duplicate item, there is NO reason for me to leave a bad feedback since the seller took care of me in a satisfactory manner.
Personally leaving a neutral feedback would be perhaps if the item I bought took a very long time to arrive (remember overseas purchases do take longer to arrive). If I bought something, lets say from a seller in California and I paid for Parcel Post. That takes 2-9 BUSINESS days. If I am sitting here a month later and the item finally arrives, thats a tad extra long in waiting time. If the seller does not communicate any delay in shipping, that calls for a neutral. WHY NOT LEAVE A NEGATIVE, you ask??? You received the item, riiiight? :o) That is why I would leave a neutral and not a negative.
This takes me to another point, bare with me: CHECK THE SELLERS FEEDBACK!!!!
(Simply click on the number next to the sellers name)
Look at their feedback score, the percentage!!!! If a seller has numerous neutral or negative feebacks in the last 30 days...STAY AWAY!!! Read their feedback and why people left bad feedback.
If a seller has less than 100% positive feedback, check why and how long ago they received a negative feedback, it could have been over a new ebayer not knowing how to properly leave feedback even, one of the reason I am writing this here.
Unfortunately only about 4 out of every 10 buyers leave feedback nowadays, so do not be upset if a seller only leaves feedback once they have received feedback from a buyer. It is a common just-practice.
10/2013 Please note: Ebay's push to offer free shipping on all items and charging an extra fee to sellers if they charge shipping has made the ebay market somewhat unstable and less fun for us sellers. I understand that big companies can offer free shipping on many items and sellers offer it a lot on lightweight items. Please do not expect and let it out on the seller via leaving neutral or negative feedback, if a seller charges shipping on dishes that weigh 5# and sell for only $10. Private part time sellers are here to make some money too, so paying for the item and eating all the quadruple ebay/ paypal fees and shipping the item out for free is just simply unreasonable.

Someone is buying a set of cabinets from me . He sent me an email saying that 3500 and some dollars is pending to go to my account , but I must first send $999 to an address in another state before the...

I would stay away from this deal sounds like a scam. Really ...why would you have to send $ to someone to get a payment from them? You can get caught with a really good price for your goods. I was selling a car on line & a guy offered me more than I was asking..I got really excited! But it turned out to be a scam to get my personal and banking details. Sold the car anyway but to a genuine buyer.
I think this probably falls in the Nigerian or 419 Scam category.
As for paying for transport, I would think that most reputable transport companies would have a variety of payment options, all with records that ensure accountability. Call a few and see how they deal with payment. I think if you don't exchange cash for goods the payment should be traceable and if operating at a distance it should be through a reputable source such as the real PayPal
Hope this helps

I have not received notice that my purchase has shipped

You will need to contact the seller for shipping info. See if they have a tracking number.

If you cannot get seller to respond or is evasive with you, go to PayPal website and click on the Resolution center and file a Dispute. Be prepared to document all communication with seller and attempts to resolve.

If you find this solution helpful, please click 'Accept' as that is how I get paid. Please feel free to add comments.

Need a battery cover for a Tyco Turbo Outlaw R/C car form the 80's. I think the model is no. S-288. FCC ID: CP57386204R

hi jason...

i looked all over for a battery... (i know you're looking for a cover, not a battery) in every shop in my town and other towns, and was told i had to order it... the cost was as much as the phone. finally i went to ebay and found one for 3 euros plus 5 euros shipping... a bit much on the shipping, but still a bargain at less than half of what i would have had to pay otherwise.

anyway, while i was searching around in there, i did see battery covers, i don't know if there are any for your model, but it's definitely worth a try.

here's the seller i bought my battery from: ml-mobiles_es you can do a search for them. they're in germany (i found them in ...españa) and they have quite a lot of mobile phone goods.. especially for older phones. if this seller isn't on your local ebay, i'm sure you'll find someone else with just as good a selection and just as really reasonably priced.

if you've never purchased anything from ebay before, it's important to know that you need to look at a sellers past references... read the feedback from their customers to be sure you don't get burned.

also, a paypal account is a good way to pay on ebay.
