That guy totally pulled a scam off. Hes walking away laughing.

He doesn't give 2 shits about the engines. He'll just go for the next one on ebay. He's just praying the next seller doesn't show up infront of his door like the previous stubborn bastard.

It's so easy to scam when you're a buyer, since paypal doesnt give a fuck about sellers. "Customers are always right" I suppose.

I could do the same thing, even if cops show up at my door like the guy in video. They can't do shit because you can just say," shipping it back is too expensive & item not as described." What chu gonna do about it? It's just a matter if you wanna be a faggot or not. really.

I've been screwed by Paypal a few times - I would welcome a better alternative with better protection. I'm glad this guy humiliated the scammer.

The blame doesn't lay entirely with Paypal. When a credit card company does a charge back, the money is back with the buyer. Paypal doesn't have it anymore, so they can't give it to you.

It's the credit card companies that screw over merchants (and buyers in different ways). Basically, they fuck everyone

I'm glad I got out of Ebay and PayPal before it went to shit. I've sold a few high ticket items over Ebay before but the last one was at least 11 years ago now. Now I only use it for small, cheap Chinese-made crap that I don't particularly care if I get or not. Otherwise, it's face-to-face sales only.

I hear you there - you used to be able to get good deals on decent items - now its all cheap Chinese junk that only works half the time.

Someone attempted to scam me last week, at least I think they did. A guy in Sri Lanka.. Registration says delivered, but he claims it was never delivered. Showed me a tiny screenshot of some tracking sheet from his post office, then submitted a claim to Ebay.

Ebay ruled in my favour, because tracking said delivered.

I don't know if he was scamming, or if one of the postal workers read the customs sheet that said CPU and stole it for himself. I would believe either one.

been scammed and almost scammed a few times in the past even though im just selling my junk its a pita -_-

tracking and buyers requirements and not selling to some countries seems to have helped i've also cancelled auctions that have been won by people because they seemed fishy and everything seems to have worked out fine that way

Ebay has started a new system too where they act as a shipping agent (you mail them the package and they ship it to the buyers) Im not sure if that adds any buyer protection but it seems like it may

Props to the guy getting some self-justice. Anyone who's sold anything on eBay (myself included) has been scammed at one point or another and wanted to go vigilante on dat azz.

Updat: the guy left negative feedback I reported him for it, and also noticed that he left the same feedback for someone else a while ago. So it really was a poorly attempted scam.

They dont protect buyers either.

I got scammed. Paid for a condo at MGM Tower in Vegas; fly there, reso info is no good so I pay out of pocket. Place even knew of the scammer and had police involved from previous scams.

Relay all of this info to PayPal, provide them with receipt showing same dates and place I paid the douche bag for and they still side with him. No explanation why either. I send a shit-o-gram objecting to their decision and they don't even respond.

Fuck PayPal.
