D&ck on ebay trying to rip me off

I bought tickets for a Glasgow gig for my daughter and her boyfriend back in October and they arrived the day after the concert. Dealer was a bit shirty but said he'd pay me back the £70 for the tickets - I sent him back the unopened package that had the delivery date on it and I still haven't received payment. Just emailed him and he says he's waiting for my "mate" who went to the concert to pay up after his cheque bounced and that the two cases are clearly related.

I have no idea why he's linked the two cases but I've just threatened him with ebay and paypal so we'll see what comes out of it. Haven't got much faith in Paypal coz' it took them two weeks to reply after I asked for my original payment to be cancelled, by which time the transacation had long since cleared

My second bad experience with ebay.

Re: D&ck on ebay trying to rip me off

Sorry to hear this Fraser.

I had bother with a dealer saying he'd posted stuff he obviously hadn't. I paid through PayPal and they refunded the money - took it straight off him, no messing. They did take a while but I got it back. They have to follow a process but it's worth pursuing.

Strange things tickets on ebay Fraser.

My boy saw one ticket for a Rangers match IIRC and it had gone to £1700 and the auction finished at 1900 hours....BUT the game finished at 1645.AND YOU HAD TO GO TO CUMBERNAULD TO PICK UP THE TICKET.

Hope you get it sorted as PG says.

Re: D&ck on ebay trying to rip me off

You certainly have to follow Paypal's system to the absolute letter, or you're on your own. Hope you sent the stuff back so you can prove it was received.

Personally, I'd never buy a ticket on ebay. They're probably technically invalid (not transferable) and it's a perfect way to pick up a forgery. I note H Goldsmith has gone to great lengths with this Led Zep one to try and prevent selling on, as did Eavis at that hippy do earlier on.

99.9% of ebay users are fantastic, I'm a reasonably regular user (140+ positive feedback, 100% satisfaction, natch) and have never had a problem.

I don't buy hugely expensive stuff on there (sub £100 mostly), and I rarely buy from the dealers/shops, preffering the 'real' ebayers, the one's who are just selling old stuff they no longer want or need.

It's an ace site by and large, and the minority of bad sellers set a terrible image for the rest of the good 'uns.

Re: D&ck on ebay trying to rip me off

TBH I've bought and sold a lot of stuff with only two incidents (the other from a guy selling 156 roof bars). I will, however, never buy tickets off there again - even though the guy has a lot of good reviews it didn't work out.

Anyway - he's backed off, sounds contrite and says he'll pay me in the next week. I'll just have to wait and see.....

Yes. Got my money back minus the postage charges. Can't be bothered arguing the toss for £8.
