1. I find it easiest to cancel those ... if they've got remorse or money issues now, they'll just try to find a reason to return it once they receive it. saves some trouble, tbh.

    Rambling message about a Burberry bag being a 'non-brand fake bag' because it didn't have 'Burberry' written on it and she wanted a refund including postage. I pointed out that it was on the label inside the bag, the tag and inscribed on the hardware of the handles, which the listing photos show. Haven't heard back since then, so I hope she's put her glasses on by now, but I'm still expecting a buyer's remorse return. Ugh.
     
  3. Not a non-paying bidder but a situation kind of appropriate to this thread. I purchased a $40 item from seller fragosoatp, listing said free shipping with two day shipping listed on the ad. So I'm expecting an invoice for $40. Instead they send me an invoice for $99.98, adding $59.98 for overnight shipping which apparently they'd decided I should have. I couldn't help but wonder if they upped the price of that shipping to pocket some themselves, I'll never know. Anyway I shot them off a quick e-mail saying to cancel the order. The next day they resent an invoice for $40.

    I'm sure they do this to other people as well, with feedback in excess of 40,000, can't imagine I'm an isolated incident. I've been a seller on e-bay since 1999 and just can't comprehend why any seller would pull such a stunt. I've had my share of problematic buyers but this one takes the cake.
     
  4. Wow, with almost 41,000 feedbacks, I have NO doubt that fragosoatp knew exactly what he was doing. It's a blatant violation of the policy and they know it. My guess is that he does this to get exposure for offering free shipping.

    I wonder how many buyers fall for this crap!

    I looked at his negs and found these. (I'm surprised there aren't more.)
