I've been on egay for 7 years and have never experienced some s*it like this. i bought a watch from this newly registered seller for $170. I send them a message a couple of days after i paid asking for a tracking number when they ship it. they respond a couple of days later, "I'm going to wait until the money clears I've never heard of this hold stuff". I politely explained to them about the hold policy and that the quickest way to their money is to send the watch as fast as they can and that there is no way i am waiting 21 for my watch. so i don't hear anything from them for a couple of days. so i'm getting pissed and start sending a couple more polite messages. they finally respond with the same answer from before. "i'll ship it when the money clears". told them "no, i want a refund. i don't have time to deal with people who clearly don't understand how to do ebay the right way." they don't respond and i send a couple more messages. there's other stuff that i can be doing with that $170. so my 14 year old brother calls me last night about 1am and tells me that they sent me a message "bitch who the fuck you think your talking to ... i said i'll fuckin send it soon as the mother fuckin money clears .. you got a fuckin problem with that come see me". he was more pissed than i was. i try to teach him to always be polite on ebay and how to handle buyers the right way (he sells alot of stuff too). he asked "can i cuss this bitch out"? i said fine. i don't care. this morning i got up to look at the message he sent her," You listen here mother fucker you are the dumbass that thinks I am going to wait 21 days to get my watch. The fucking reason that paypal holds your money is so that new sellers do not screw people over like you are obviously trying to do. I don't want the fucking watch I just want my money back. You can sell the watch again and try to pull this fucking bullshit on someone else and watch them get pissed off to." i was quite impressed with the boy. plus i opened a gaypal dispute. that will get them limited since it is their second transaction. but i really just need my money.. there's other watches that i can invest it with the $$. i think i will just have to call this heffer's house. sometimes a phone call does it especially if i tell her what kind of car she drives and where he momma lives. that will freak her ass out.
