Complaint / review text:
The bidder changed his mind 18 minutes before the auction ended. It is SCS LLC in Virginia. The bidder threatened the seller if the seller did not retract the bidder's bid. Bids cannot be retracted in the last hour of auction. The bidder won the item. I filed a complaint with eBay. EBay found in seller's favor. The buyer filed a complaint with Paypal immediately after. Paypal found in buyer's favor. EBay said that a buyer should not be able to file a complaint with eBay and Paypal and that this buyer must have known how to beat the system or knew someone at Paypal. Paypal refunded the buyer's money. The buyer kept the $200 item, which was not returnable.
The seller was charged eBay seller fee. The seller ended up paying about $17 in seller fees and losing the $200 income, and losing the item to this scam. The seller had many long conversations with Paypal and eBay, who agreed that the seller was scammed but they can do nothing about it because the buyer won't give the money back and the seller does not want the computer item back. EBay has become nothing but a market for scammers. The seller sold two other items the same week to two eBayers who also were unrealistic and left negative feedback for no good reason. One buyer demanded immediate shipment upon making payment at 10PM on a Friday night and the other one demanded to return a non-returnable item and demanded that the seller pay for shipping to and from buyer. EBay complaint found in seller's favor, the buyer kept the item and got a refund but still left negative feedback. EBay is awful.
