dont label him a crook yet

some people use the features on ebay not quite knowing what they will do so might be innocent, i still say, send a message, speak on the phone and view before bidding and check thru any paperwork, hear running etc and get it tested.



if engine was good i would also try to secure a private sale direct with the buyer if it seems like a good buy and bypass ebay fees and associated hassle.

Chris,

(1) I've already emailed requesting to see the motor - no reply.

(2) The motor belongs to ARG Marine in Florida - they took the pictures and their logo is on the motor and visible in the background.

(3) Buyer ID kept secret is NOT something the seller does by mistake.

Get a grip mate - it's naivety like yours that keeps these crooks in business!

This is of course completely against ebay policy and can have both you and the sellers accounts suspended for doing so

Ebay do not take lightly to loosing commision on multi-thousand pound sales.

But seriously though - these guys are right - there is no way this thing is for real.

ebay and paypal are a bunch of money grabbing basta£ds, for example, someone in australia purchased some bits from my wifes store, we were paid via paypal, so my wife sent the goods off to this person, person had good feedback buy only around 30 ish in total, next thing was paypal took the money back off my wife saying the person had paid for the items with a stolen or dodgy card........

so....person in australia so i could not pop round and have a little word in their ear, paypal looked after themselves and took the money back off of my wife, ebay not interested, aussies did not reply, us out of pocket

i have done a lot of business on ebay and i find them unethical in their approach and their control of rogue people, the risk is always passed to the buyer or seller.

i had a couple of nasty experiences which showed at the end of the day you can be paid via paypal but they can take the money back with no comeback by you for some time after.....beware!!

they say you dont get the protection of ebay if you buy direct, joke, nothing better than buying from a reputable shop, or from a person you have met and trust.

bitter...u bet

I wasn't trying to stick up for them - or justify their policies - I share your sentiments about them.

I'm sure they are going to commercialise and ruin Skype too now they own it.

Banking 101, never accept the risk yourself.

PayPal is not quite the same as a regular credit card merchant agreement where it is always passed on to the merchant.

At least PayPal don't add a 20 quid administration fee on the chargeback unlike WorldPay

As a merchant who uses PayPal, WorldPay & a normal Streamline terminal, PayPal are the only ones who will judge a chargeback request on it's merits, the others just take the money, even if you can prove delivery.

Thankfully not many customers know that you can put a chargeback request in upto 6 months after the transaction & be 99% certain of getting your money back.
