Got scammed

I’ve been posting about this on Twitter, but I’m just mad and frustrated at this point. I bought a bathroom set from a seller on eBay and got scammed. What actually arrived was so terrible I couldn’t even use them. I contacted the seller and they offered a 30% discount without returning the items. If I wanted a full refund, I’d have to send them back. Why should I have to pay to ship them back when they weren’t as described? The seller also suggested I donate or sell them. Nobody is going to want this garbage. They’re getting a ton of negatives with complaints about how awful the items are and that they were scammed. I tried opening a case with eBay and PayPal and I guess I need to wait for the seller to resolve it which I don’t think they have. I’m going to try to fight this and get my money back but I don’t know if I will. I don’t know why they allow people to sell total crap and not take responsibility for it. It’s not so much the cost, it’s the fact that they falsely represented the items and don’t seem to care. If eBay and PayPal won’t help, I guess it’s a lesson learned and I’ll be more careful with what I purchase. It’s still really frustrating though.

  1. I don’t trust ebay at all and never buy anything from them, I usually stick with amazon or walmart if I want to buy something online. I’m sorry that it happened to you and I hope that you get your money back.

  2. Im going to try my best to get my money back. The seller told me to close the return request because they claim they can’t send me a return shipping label with it open. That seems pretty fishy to me. I’m going to leave it open. In 2 more days I can ask eBay to step in.
