I never understood why sellers waited until I had posted positive feedback to post equally nice feedback about me. I mean, they had my money - so I would think that would be enough to leave nice comments. Now, I understand.
I recently auctioned some lipgloss that I had purchased new from Ulta using a coupon and then resold on ebay. I left great feedback as soon as I got the payment and mailed the product. Then the buyer claims I used the products (I didn't of course) and sold her dirty lipgloss, and she wants her money back right away. The tone of the email was harassing and mean so I assumed she changed her mind and was trying to get her money back. It isn't unusal for buyers to ruin an item in order to get a refund from a seller with a "No Returns" policy.
To be fair I let her know she could bring the gloss directly back to Ulta to exhange, or send to it me and I would send her a gift card to purchase a new one with. But I would not send her cash as that was not my policy. I got email, after email that was verbally abusive and frankly, just freaking nuts. I just kept repeating my offer to replace and stood firm.
But as of today, I have two horrible feedbacks from this seller on my record. Really slanderous and dishonest stuff. And she, has two warm and fuzzy feedbacks from me since I sent hers right away. Ugh. Lesson learned. I'll be waiting to give feedback till I get mine now. The whole thing has me rattled and is definitely putting me off eBay for awhile. Which bums me out because I love selling and buying. People suck sometimes.
