I recently purchased a Robart Jeweled blade pitch gauge from laborer1us for around $20 dollars. MY first mistake is I didnt read the paypal only thing. We worked out payment by money order which is all I ever use to pay with. I sent an email to her with my correct address in New Bern NC for her to get the shipping amount off of. She emailed me final amount with shipping to New Bern NC and I sent her the money order with my New Bern NC address and the envelop address also said New Bern NC. 2 weeks after this I recieve an email from her requesting feedback for the item. I told her I had not recieved it and she looked up the USPS tracking number that reflected delievered to an address in Rexburg, Indiana. So after an email with my New Bern NC address, a money order with my New Bern NC address, and the envelop with the New Bern NC address she sends it to the wrong address. I dont know what she was looking at but my ebay account reflects my current address. I get this email from her:

Before you go getting upset with me over anything you might want to change the address on your ebay account, the item was sent to the address on your ebay address. Reguardless of what the address was on the envelope, I had a guy in Europe get a package for me and send to me. The item was delivered, you should have either changed your ebay address or let me know in advance that it was not where to send the item. I knew when you wanted to pay in a way I wasnt accepting it was a bad idea. Next time I will know better.

So my question is what should I do now. It was only $20 ish dollars but why was the addresses over looked and she sent it elsewhere anyway????? Thats why I hate ebay and havent used it in 5 years.

I hate ebay and will never use it again. They are a rip off, same goes for their paypal scam. Won't use either ever again. I rather pay a little more and get things from regular on-line dealers/shops. At least you know your not going to get ripped off and or your things get shipped to the wrong address.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Boy, she sounds like a real catch! Feel sorry for her husband!

Ebay was great 10 years ago, now it is more of a pain and fees are ridiculous. Sorry for your problems.

Just count your loss and send her an email saying it was your mistake dealing with an idiot

2nd that. I only buy new or from known reliable resellers now. The cost difference is minor -- well worth the peace of mind and lack of aggravation.

Ebay SUCKS. PayPal SUCKS too. Greedy bastards with apparently no interest at all in honorable transaction resolution -- profits first, ALWAYS.

I used to sell there often but find the fees are getting ridiculous and the buyers a pain in the ass.

if you would have used paypal it would have been *nearly* impossible for it to go the wrong address, as the USPS shipping information is filled in automatically.

for every 1 person that has a problem with it, tens of thousands use it (ebay/paypal) with no trouble. the fees are high, but there is no better market exposure and the automation saves time, which is valuable to me (click-n-ship).
