Unpaid Item Strike eBay – What To Do When A Fake Flash Seller Gets Vindictive
Posted by KittyFireFlash on June 1, 2009
You bought a fake MP Player, usb flash drive or memory card and discovered the Truth. You dragged the fake flash seller to the PayPal dispute console and forced him to return your money. Your money is refunded, then suddenly you find an unpaid item strike against you from eBay. What is going on? What should you do?
Basically the seller has logged an unpaid item strike at you trying to get his selling fees back from ebay. Of coz ebay unpaid item policy ONLY allows if the buyer does not paid for the item, or you mutually agree not to go ahead with the sales. In this case, you paid for the item, and you received the item. However, because it was a fake item, you therefore went to a paypal dispute to get your refund. For more info please visit http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/unpaid-item.html
Secondly, if you as a buyer knows the seller has falsely reported an unpaid item strike on you, you are entitled to an appeal. All you have to do is prove that you have paid from your paypal transactions (or other means of payment). – This again is a serious flaw in ebay where once the seller refunded your money back, your item is then shown as “unpaid”. I have raise this issue with ebay, yet they have not given me an answer as to why! So you can see why it so easy for the seller to raise an unpaid item strike.
Next is to appeal the strike. For more info see http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/appeal-unpaid-item.html – click on the online Unpaid Item Appeal form – all you have to do is fill out when you paid and the paypal transaction ids.
So as you can see, fake flash sellers try to get their listing fees back after having frauded you with fake flash. The cheek! It is also petty and vindictive. They don’t like it when you succeed with your claim against them. Just follow FakeStopper’s advice and if you like, report the seller once again to eBay for having tried to claw back fees. These fraudsters know better, but if they were happy to sell you fake flash in the first place, expect them to try anything they can. Just appeal and report them!
