Some people are just nasty
And for no reason at all....
Get this eBay customer I have at the moment. He's a new member (I wont show his user name), and he's really getting on my tits, even though I am being very nice to him:
Orginal Auto-Generated Message, sent when I had been waiting two weeks for payment:
An Unpaid Item dispute has been opened for the following item: URBAN WAR - PUBLICATIONS - ISSUE "3" (#8700241372)
Reason given for Unpaid Item: The buyer has not paid for the item.
Buyer actions reported by seller: Other reason.
*Note: "Other Reason", I can put "No Contact" "Refuses To Pay" and any number of other reasons, but as at one point I was contacted to say payment had been sent, I was nice.
I have already paid for this item using check or money order. Payment details are as follows:
Check number: **********
Payee: charlotte oaks
Payment date: 07-Oct-2005
I don't know if this check has been cashed.
Additional comments: i have sent this payment last wednesday ,i emailed yourself ,to let you know why it hadn't been sent
,as my wife forgot to send it to you ,as this is nowa week .im wondering myself where it has got to
i have sent payment to you ,i wish to know where my magazine is
I did get your email saying you had sent it, but as of yet I have not had your payment. Feel
free check with your bank, and see that we have not cashed your cheque. You may wish to cancel it as
it has failed to arrive.
I do still have your magazine on hold for you, however, I will have to
re-list it if we cannot arrange a payment by the end of the weekend. If you wish to continue with the
sale please let me know and I will hold it for you for a few more days.
this is the third time i have stated i have paid for the item, i am going to check with the post
office first thing tomorrow to see if the payment has been cashed, and find out exactly where and
when, and i will be letting you know,
I think that would be advisable. It is not impossible that your payment has become lost in
the post or stolen. Please let me know the outcome, and, again, if you still wish to continue the
Now, is it just me, angered by the fact this guy is making out that I am ripping him off, or is the tone of his message really arsey?!! Why would I rip some one off for £6.00???
I tell you, I'll be waiting to see if this cheque cleared (if it ever shows up) before I send out his magazine! This guy seems to me like he's trying to be a con man, only without the itelligence to do i right!
Now, eBay is allowing me to give this guy a "Non-Payer" strike, and as of yet, I have not done this. If he continues to be an arse, I will, and I'll leave Neg feedback too. I know that means he'll leave it for me too, but I'll risk it. All my other feedback is glowing, and people who click on it will see that he's an arse!
