Dirty Nasty Smoker or EBAY $UCK$ THE BIG KAHUNA

In case anybody is wondering you can search PAYPAL STORES and get just about anything that's on EBAY or $5 or more less... Anyway, the scammers are out in full force on EBAY and I've had more shady characters causing problems recently than in 8 years previously.

Actually, I got quite a chuckle out of this turkey, but the real problem was with EBAY blowing me off and condoning mail and wire fraud, not to mention bad taste !

If you don't believe me, I can send you scan of the return packaged dated the 28th one day after this idiot accused me of theft !!!

From EBAY:

Jul. 27, 2009 - Buyer: Dispute filed

# 7/27/2009 18:27 PDT - Buyer: The item was listed as new but obviously was not and it was shipped back weeks ago and they deny receiving it back. It was sold knowing that it was not new and broken. I do plan on leaving negative feedback and 1 stars due to them not taking care of this matter. Also they do not return emails!

From the Feeback section:

"Product was USED & sold as NEW.Emails were few and rude. I had PAYPAL get refund

The funny thing about it is that it was the last item of my last FEE-BAY listing... I had a sneaky suspicion that this guy wasn't playing with a full deck and I knew better than bothering with the dolt but got dragged in by the charge-back. I just reported the guy again for today's harassing email.

I'll report back to see if EBAY blows me off again. But, yes it's nasty. About 10 of mylast 20 auctions have attracted scammers. Which doesn't include the occasional switcheroo when buying.. My biggest problem is EBAY still wants their fees, and makes you tie up money and inventory, while they "investigate". Then they blow you off.

Basically, too many implied "fuck yous", "don't like it go somewhere else." And now it's worth the trouble going elsewhere....

Reading thru Studs Terkel's HARD TIMES, more than a few people relate stories about stealing clothing off lines and raiding fields to get food. It was all about survival. On the other hand, most mentioned that anytime someone in a family had work they gave up ALL THEIR PAY to feed others.

But, it's going to be different this time around, with the "it's all about me" type attitude of the deluded masses. Frankly, I don't care, can't do anything about it and never bought into the system anyway...
