    I just had two of my listings removed. I clearly stated in bold 36 font that I was listing a wii console guide and not a wii console. I am new to ebay, are the buyers always like this, and do you guys have problems with them not being able to read?

    guess so I got an angry email from one of the bidders saying he was reporting me.. other than that I have never had problems with ebay.

    well $270 for a wii for dummies book lol... guess I'm going to have to refund that.

    I used to sell dummy-phones on ebay. And they were actually listed as:
    fake, dummy cell-phones, which are used to display in a shop. They DO NOT WORK.

    My auctions weren't removed by Ebay, but man, people were bidding on the dummy's as it were real phones, which resulted off course in a lot of refunds after they were explained it were fake phones...

    A lot of the ebay-users are really morons who don't read at all.

    Very frustrating when you clearly completely disclose and people complain.

    yea how many refunds does it take before ebay starts getting pissed off about it? I list things like this so people will click and not buy then get cookie stuffed. I don't expect them to actually buy lol...

    End the auction 24 hours before it officially ends or set a high reserve so that if they'll cop you can buy it for them anyways and will even make a little profit.

    If you clearly disclose it and someone is an idiot, you should sell these items and have your lawyer contact them when they refuse to pay. Small claims court, they wont show up, you'll win.

    ebay has a keyword spamming rule. its been active since august or something.

    if you are selling a list or a guide or anything thats not really a wii, you cant put the keyword wii in the title. (goes for everything really, ipod, ps3, ambilight tv)

    so if people search for a wii, they wont get a wii list, guide or some other shit they can mistake for a real console in the search results..

    just read ebay tos.

    its done for the wholesale lists everyone was buying, expecting a real wii in the mail.
