Yeah I think he just doesn't know anything about the figures; doesn't come off as overly intelligent, anyway.


So I called eBay about this, and basically they told me they can see I'm not at fault so they'll wipe the case from my account record. I asked what would happen with the seller, and they mentioned that the negative feedback I left would be wiped when the case is closed so basically, nothing. I asked if there was any way they could get the feedback to stick as a warning to other buyers since this guy obviously doesn't know what he's doing, and their reply was that I could pay for the invoice if I wanted the feedback to remain because their system only allows feedback with payment (which I know isn't the case as I've left feedback for canceled purchases before)


Am I the only one who sees this as a pretty damn big loophole that allows sellers to back out of a sale if they don't get the price they want? Just send a huge overcharge on the invoice, don't reply to any messages, and file a non-paying bidder dispute case. No visible repercussions and you get to try again for more cash.  <_<

I find this troubling indeed, but also the seller might be more intelligent than you initially thought using such sneaky tactics. Is the seller doing this intentionally or not? I think he knows what he's doing, and odds are this new account is not even his first one, probably one of many. He isn't just going to happen to have a carded BB item and be a noob about how to sell it. He discovered this loophole long ago I bet and using it to get what he thinks it worth one way or another by exploiting this apparent new feedback rule.


EDIT- I forgot to ask, did the seller get a strike against his account, if so, than this tactic is limiting since he can only do it a couple of times before his account is permanently suspended. Might explain why this seller is using a new account.

It's bad enough that sellers have long been quoting outrageously inflated shipping costs as a means of cheating eBay out of fees...this is a new low. I've always understood that an eBay sale is a binding contract to purchase the item at the final bid price, and at the shipping cost specified in the listing. Too bad legal action would be prohibitively expensive and entirely too time-consuming.


Intelligent or not, that seller is a grade-A douchebag who is on my never-buy from list.

Was originally reported by another member for not honouring his end of a sale. The member paid Warsystem04 $11 for some assorted MUSCLE figures, and after several weeks of waiting nothing showed up. After attempted contact by the mods, (which was blatantly ignored), said member contacted Warsystem04 at his place of business. Warsystem04 then responded to the staff PM and gave an incredibly insulting excuse, but said he would ship the figures.

Almost two weeks later, (today), and the figures have yet to arrive at the buyer's home.

Do yourselves a favour and never buy from this guy.

wild-man on eBay.Some of you may remember the post I did asking for advice on return items, this is the guy.I originally wasn't going to post him on here because I got my refund in December !But this Genuine Dbag filed another Dispute on me Today(The Last Day He could), im sure he would have left a bad feedback too , al though he couldn't on me cause he put a good feedback on me because I paid instantly on the purchase date!Avoid this guy at all cost he will try anything to screw you over if there is a problem with your package.


We agreed on a return , in which he said i have to pay for shipping.But the Ebay FAQ says differently. if the package arrived broken.He said he phoned them and thats what they said ,which i think is lies one way or another since the FAQ says differently!Then he asked me to destroy the pez.After filing a return i couldn't file a dispute through ebay , so i had to put one directly through paypal.I got my refund through paypal, but then today on Jan 14/2015 he filed a dispute through paypal after the other dispute already went through!This dbag accused me of breaking it!




Here is his store

ebay seller and board member Jeremy0477


He advertised his items here and linked them to his ebay auctions. I purchased the SLUG Zombies lot.  He never shipped items and he neglected to respond to my email.  At least Paypal returned my money without a problem.

I just found out about this thread today.  The transaction was in January. We were both new members with zero feedback at the time, so I figured I would take the chance.  I sent 11 uncommon/rare Mutant Mania for his Battle Beast Minimates.  He confirmed receipt on Jan 7th.  He told me that he had not sent his yet because he was looking for a box.  I gave him the benefit of the doubt for weeks, occasionally checking in.  He let more than three emails lapse with no response.  I alerted three moderators on Jan 27th, and nothing happened except my entire correspondence with him was deleted, including all records of what was to be received, his address, etc.   I have not left him negative feedback due to a fear of more dishonesty in the form of retaliation.  Again, I did not find out about this thread until today as a means of warning others. To date, he has still not sent his items.

Thanks for posting this Steve. I have the council looking into it and if his other transactions went south as well.

The original PM exchange is still there in the database. so it is either showing up in your inbox or his. If it is not in yours then you must have deleted it on accident.
Edit: I restored the PM conversation to your inbox. You should be able to see it now.

I wanted to update an old complaint of LRG member Saleen123456.


After almost a year and a half, he finally contacted me and we worked something out to make up for the repro weapons I got sold. Turns out he had very serious, life/death health issues.


So, all's good between us. It just took two years… ;)


Hopefully mods, you can update that however you feel necessary.

Bought $300 of Peru MIMP from him and some toys for him (we had dealt before). He has never paid me for the toys, sent my figures or refunded my money (which was unfortunately done by Western Union). He also screwed a friend out of $50 worth of monsters. It has been 8 months now. Not sure if he is on here, but avoid him at all costs.

Ebay name: verretsmrmeyahgi


Location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana


Won a lot of Ninja Mites and paid the same day. 3 weeks passed and nothing arrived. I sent THREE messages asking for a tracking # with no response. A week ago I get a package in the mail for a different item than what i bidded on (a M.A.S.K. vehicle accessory). That being said, I guess they just mixed up my order with someone elses, but it was obviously sent out after I had already sent them messages so I don't quite understand how that happened. Since then I have attempted messaging them again to tell them I can either: 1.send the item back or 2.send it to the right person so at least one of us gets what we originally ordered, and in hopes that the other person might send the Ninja Mites to me.


Long story short, ebay has re-compensated me but I would steer clear of this person, simply because they would not respond or make an attempt to straighten things out.
