One more reason to hate fleabay

So I am going through my daily routine of looking at Jem auctions and emailing bidders to tell them they are bidding on fakes when all of a sudden fleabay has ended the ability to do that. Because so many A$sholes were doing scams, now you can't even warn somebody of a fake. So now I just continue to report them to the bay with no hope of anything being done about it.

Again, they don't give a sh*t IMHO, they just want the money

Re: One more reason to hate fleabay

"Copy" the item number, go to the bidders profile, contact bidder that way. Including the item number. I do the same thing. I seen one where the guy bid on a Ibanez M100C case for like a couple of dollars from China. You know.... like it's a "real" deal. Cheapest shipping offered is 83.00 GBP which is like $153.00 USD. Fools born everyday......

Re: One more reason to hate fleabay

Jemplayer, I tried that and it still didn't work, what am I doing wrong? I copied the item number, went into the bidders profile, hit the "contact member" button, pasted the item number in there and left a message but it still wouldn't take it.

Re: One more reason to hate fleabay

3bay is blocking all non seller / buyer communication. I called customer support and read them the riot act about it. On one hand I can see why they are as there is so much fraud in second chance offers and offers to sell/buy off the site [and of course 3bay can't make any money on those sales] but it fully eliminates member policing. Huge mistake IMO.

Re: One more reason to hate fleabay

Honestly, what do you care if some one is scamming or being scammed? If they're scamming, they'll get what they deserve, or if some one is foolish enough to not really look at what they're throwing their money away on, it's not your problem. Why would you waste your free time trying to help?
Maybe I'm just a jerk, lol.
Good luck 'cracking the code' of e-bay.

Because it hurts the market when it comes to selling genuine goods.

Re: One more reason to hate fleabay

I've had loads of these "Second Chance Offers" on guitars I've recently bid on, but only a complete moron would fall for them. Honestly, they are that bad!

It's all going to come to a head and I've got a damn good feeling that the consumer will win out.

Anybody that would stand around and watch somebody else get ripped off without doing anything is little better than the scum doing the ripping.
