    In March I ordered an item from a Chinese guy on ebay, I always look for top-rated badge to be on the safe side and since this guy has over 100000 feedback I did not bother reading the feedback so I just went ahead and paid.

    Weeks go by and the parcel never arrived so I sent him a message and he did not respond, so I decided to open a case at ebay, then he immediately responded telling me to wait 30-40 days for the item, I decided to wait and as I guessed it did not arrive so I escalated the case to the customer support and they refunded me within less than 24 hours as no tracking was provided.

    Now I left that Chinese a negative feedback and the scumbag keeps begging me to change it, he's sent me countless messages with my details desperately trying to have me changing the feedback.. wtf.. Like seriously, have some shame here, scamming people then asking for positive feedback?

    I looked at his feedback closer and 5% of the total feedback is negative and it's all about people who never received their items.

    This guy wasted my time and lesson learned, always do complete background check of the seller.

    What's more strange here is that ebay allows such scumbags to remain on their platform.

    ebay got different rules for their bigger guys, it is very shady the way they operate, growing a business on ebay is the most frustrating thing ever

    Yeah, the CS sided with me directly as the case was open for long and the seller never provided a tracking number.

    Make him pay for it. Charge him $20.00, and then after you receive the money, make him wait 30 - 45 days until you get around to changing the feedback.

    charge him for it, then tell him he must do the Harlem shake and record himself for 5 minutes before u change it...and youtube it and he must make the title.

    "I had to harlem shake to get my negative feedback removed on ebay"

    Actually, I think something like that would go viral

    Don't ask for money to remove feedback - he'll take it straight to eBay and get the feedback removed without any compensation for feedback extortion. Leave the neg and move on.

    Just tell him to pass the video to you so you will be the one who upload and monetise it and not the other way around. After you activate Adsense, get back to Ebay, order lots of products from different sellers, some of them will arrive, some will not but it doesn't matter, you will leave negative feedback to all sellers. Ask all of them to make and send you the video and after that wait for them to go viral. Rinse and repeat!
