Question about eBay Auctions

1 Answer

I live in the uk. I bought a car on ebay uk on the 21st December. The Chrysler Neon car was described as low mileage and immaculate. The selling price was £1300. I talked to the seller over the next few days and he assured me the car was in a great condition. I won the bid and asked how he would like to get paid. I said I would only pay by paypal.After a long conversation he convinced me that paypal fees were too high and that he would need the money by direct bank transfer. I reluctantly agreed and released the funds.I then found out the car was a category c write off with no registration document. I explained I wanted my money back on the 23rd December and so far he has refused. Yesterday the same car was back on E-Bay with the current bid of £620. The bidding finshes today. What are my options. Can I ask E-bay to have the listing removed immediately

I personally would have not released the funds until i physically seen the vehicle and paperwork and then would have only paid with Paypal (because Paypal offers free purchase protection)

Click on this link below and then look to the right of the page and click on the "resolve a problem" box to get your "not as described" report into ebay.

The biggest problem in all of this is that you paid in a different form other then Paypal so ebay won't be able to help you out that much on returning or reversing your money. Since you have already paid the seller, I would now go and take delivery of the used vehicle (and accept your loss) or contact the bank you made the transfer from and have them freeze or reverse the money transaction (if that is still possible) since the car was not advertised correctly. The same car being resold on ebay after you paid for it sounds like that seller tricked you into doing the transaction outside of Paypal to steal your money.

I bought a car on Ebay BMW(I know, I'm dumb for buying a car on Ebay), when the car arrived not only was it not as pictured, completelt filthy and quite a few items were either broken or missing, which non...

File a dispute with Paypal (if you used them as payment) and state that the item was not as described. Paypal will reverse your original payment after the BMW is returned to the seller. Hopefully you live close enough to the seller so you won't have to pay high return shipping charges. Also inform the seller that the vehicle is not as described and you would like a complete refund. Since the odometer is a different mileage then described you should not have a problem with receiving a complete refund. Scan the Carfax report and then upload it into your Paypal dispute (it will have an option to upload your documents) so Paypal will have proof that the vehicles was not as described.

If you find one that has a 4-speed and the same engine size, then they will fit. What you need to watch for is that you get the correct gear ratio tranny to keep your car operating properly. I only know one way to know for sure and that is a number stamped just above the pan rail on the bottom oil pan. It will be long and have some letters at the start of it. You may be able to get that to a dealership and have them look it up. If the donor transmission is still in the car then the vehicle id number should tell you what ratio the trans is when it's looked up. That is how it's done with the US cars, it may vary a bit with the UK ones, but I am not sure.
