Online auctions - a word of caution

Hi

Just thought I would share my attempt to replace my Nikkor 35-70 f/2.8

Bought and sold hundreds of things of ebay but things seem to be getting worse........

When I describe items as mint - unmarked - no dust or scratches I mean it and my buyers have been happy.

Well my first purchase was of lightly used "couple of cleaning marks" for $299 from USA - Paypal only refunded their maximum $175!!! (1st pic)

Not deterred I purchased a second copy "perfect" 229 - am awaiting the outcome of this.... (2nd pic)

I have purchased lenses before and never had a problem but it seems as if the bigger ebay gets the worse it gets....

Oh well rant over

The pictures shown were just good enough to not show the defects !!! And verbal questions were just responded with inaccurate statements.....

Update is the second seller has promised a FULL refund ......

Oh well the search is still on

Will keep you updated

Sorry to hear about this Simon, allthough at least your getting the 2nd lens sorted.

I thought Paypal covered you up to 500, not $175???

Mmmmm so did I - but apparently it covers exactly what they want it to cover !! In this case the seller only has $175 in his paypal account so that was all I got - they will try and recover the rest..

I think it is very misleading as I was under the impression that PAYPAL covered your loss should they decide that you were right...... However that I suppose would eat into billions of profits.....

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

Well it certainly states that if an item is covered by PayPal's Buyer Protection then you enjoy free protection up to 500.

Is there something in the small print I am missing.

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

I know another member on here who sold an item to someone who paid by Paypal, then a week later after recieving the good the buyer had Paypal take money back out the sellers account !!!! There was nothing wrong with the goods & the buyer moved rented accom immediately. Paypal didn't want to know about helping the seller out

You've only got to look at all the blatant copied DVDs / siftware etc for sale on EBAY, that you know EBAY /PAYPAL don't give a monkeys about their customers.

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

Sometimes it's not always the sellers fault, i sold a neg scanner once and it was in near perfect condition and fully working, even-though it was overly protected when packed up it still managed to arrive not working. I happened to be away at the time so didn't respond to e-mail and the guy gave me some bad feedback. When i realised, i contacted him and gave a full refund including his postage costs back to me.
I keep his bad feedback because he had put an update to it saying i take it all back full refund (along those kind of lines), this i feel looks more honest than having entirely good feedback.

However i do feel for you, especially as i have just yesterday bought a 70-200 f4L lens from ebay.

Yep, glad it didn't work out too badly for you... make sure you keep on Paypal's back to get the rest of the cash for the 1st lens.

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

What a shame that you've had such a bad luck on Ebay. I am a big ebayer and gladly never had any problems. But I don't think I will go on there to buy any lenses, that's for sure.

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

I looked at lenses on ebay many times but the prices are so close to new values that
i do not think they are worth buying. I have to say that i have bought many lower priced items from them without any bad experiences,i keep my purchases to a level Where a loss would be annoying but not a disaster.

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

It's a shame that you bought from outside the UK, otherwise, you could have at the very least, have gone round to whoever sold the item, and.....lets say, had a quiet word in their ear....... I only ever purchase from inside the UK for that very reason. Also, under UK law, if the item was sold on Ebay in the UK, and quoted as being brand new, and it turns out it was'nt, Ebay (as sales hosts) can be held responsible for breaking advertising, and POS (Point of sale) laws, as well as the original seller, especially if feedback would suggest that this was not the first time.
In saying all this, I feel for you........by the looks of the first lens, you may as well be shooting through the bottom of a well used pint glass......

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

I have to say that I just bought a 140mm Macro for my RZ 11 pro and the "Buy it Now " price was half the average normal selling price of other similar lenses on ebay. I thought that I would at least have to send it for cleaning at that price but when it arrived at was Mint - at least. So there are some honest sellers on ebay.

Re: Online auctions - a word of caution

I recently bought a canon np-e3 battery for my 1 series it was advertised as new with photos etc. won the item, when it arrived it was old and used, put dispute through ripoffpal and they sided with seller saying I had swapped the battery for an old one.

I told the seller I would take it to the police to take finger prints for a fraud case to be brought against them, seller refunded straight away.

Too many crooks on ebay now.
