Returns and Scammers



I hate returns.....Wait.  Let me change that. I hate returns where I feel like I am being scammed. Ugh. I have have had two request for returns in the last month that total over $300.  I am bummed about it. Why are they returning it?  Damaged in shipping.  That's what they say.  Do I believe that they are being truthful?  Nope. So, although I am very professional when corresponding to my buyers about this, I am ticked off.  So excuse my while I vent.

One of the return request clearly looks like a bait and switch.  The other might have a little more validity - but I am still not convinced of the damage.   If it was damaged, why wait 45 days later to make a PAYPAL claim.  Why oh why do I have to deal with this?  If you want to scam me.....please do it with something cheap, okay?  If you want to scam me.......let me know in advance so I can really give you something to complain about.  If you want to scam me.....do it in a way that I don't feel like I am being scammed.  If you were a good scammer, I would be so irritated right now - because I wouldn't know that I was being scammed......GET IT??

Whew, I just needed to get that off my chest.  Just in case these two ridiculous return requests get the best of me and my ebay account....it's been nice knowing ya.

Really though, I hope this hit from Ebay won't be too hard.  I have way to much stuff I still need to get rid of...

Please send me some positive vibes.  I need them right now.

Who's Watching Wednesday - June 8

I still don't have a lot of action going on this summer with Ebay, but I'm ok with that.  Life in general is pretty busy for me right now and I don't feel like I have a lot of time to devote to Ebay at the moment. So, I am basically stepping back a bit until things slow down.  Althought I don't have a lot of sales, I do have watchers - so here it is again.  Who's Watching Wednesday.

It is interesting to see if watchers translates to buyers.  Based on this little experiment, only one of the items watched from my last post ended up selling.  Let's see what happens this time. Some of the items here were on the previous list.  Others are new additions to the watch list.  Just as I was preparing this post, someone bought the Eddie Bauer Shorts.....so they are no longer available. Maybe this is the week that some of the other "watched items" will sell too!  Wish me luck.

What does your watch list look like?
