yep, me too.

what happened?

someone managed to get their way into my e-mail account, and subsequently my paypal and ebay accounts. spent about £700 on characters in Everquest or some other MMO. I found out, told Paypal who said they'd investigate and "might not" take the money, so i told them to get fucked, canclled everything, rang my bank and told them not to give any money to paypal under any circumstances. unlike paypal they didn't seem to have a problem with this, since, y'know, it's MY FUCKING MONEY.

shortly after, paypal rang me bitching about failed payments. i told them to go fuck themselvs and haven't used them or ebay since.

what happened to you? get sold duff goods? ebay has a process for dealing with it i think.

That's a considerably worse situation than mine have ever even accumulated to Chippy. Ouch!

Some cunt was selling sunglasses. To be fair, it's only 40 quid which I can afford to loose but why let someone get away with it?
His payment methods specified only Postal Orders. Knowing how risky they are, I sent him a message asking for his Account details to transfer the money directly. This way, I could prove that he received it. His account name was vastly different to his e-bay name.
I didn't receive the item after a week and e-mailed him. He gave some cock & ball story about a family member dying recently and that he'd send them 'today'. This goes back 2 weeks now. His delivery charge was £7.50 which is hardly a 1st class stamp so It's not been lost in the mail.
His account has since been cancelled & he refuses to answer his e-mails.
He's also got several poor feedbacks about fake glasses etc.
I've got his address & went to directory inquiries to find his phone number so I could threaten to cut his balls off. No joy with that name. Surprise.

I phoned the police and they didn't seem to be able to help me until I specified his address. Turns out there's a few open enquiries into a potential fraudster at that address. Got my crime number so I guess I just wait.

I think I might send him a few turds in the post.

i guess all you can do is report him to ebay and the police and hope they sort it out. i'm sure ebay have some sort of insurance in place for this sort of thing.

it's "cock and bull", incidentally, but I like cock and ball better.

That's why I said it. Plus it's a fitting alternative to saying 'Bollocks'.

I think Jimmy was playing on words the first time he said it... he's aware that it's meant to be bull :suck:

*sigh* what a load of bullocks.

i once bought some earphones on ebay, nice sennheiser ones, and they blew after about 6 hours of use. so i sent the guy a really angry email, saying 'you're shit, your shop is shit, these earphones are shit and i hate you die die die' or something along those lines. and he sent one back saying 'sorry, i'll send you some more'. result.

I've been remarkably lucky with ebay. I only buy from sellers with good feedback and who let me pay with paypal.

Then again, I do buy a lot of shit off ebay, like yarn, rat hammocks, more yarn, more rat hammocks.... :nuts:

I'm not sure why, but I really like the idea of a rat hammock.

I have images of a Banksy-esque rat, complete with sunglasses, cocktail with curly straw and a cocktail umbrella lazing between two miniature palm trees...

rats are brilliant, hammocks are brilliant, rat hammocks are the ultimate.

I just got back from my friends' place in wales, and they have a hammock hanging down from the ceiling in their living room. it is lovely fun to sit in :)

Me lil sis has a couple of rats, Nexus and Nova. Nexus is brown/white, the sweetest rat I've ever seen.

Nova on the other hand is an albino pink eyed fucker. He bites. He shits/pisses on you. He's generally a horrible little creature.

A human sized hammock would be great, or even better one of those 'love swings' hehe, I likses the look of those... ;)

i'd like a love swing, but I havent got room in the flat or anyone to play with on it.
Maybe one day i'll have a house with my own "love room" in it. It'll have a big double bed, a love swing, and a stereo playing smooooth jazz..oh and candles!

anyway, yeah ebay is really bad....

your rats look identical to my sister's, bar the fact that you can hold the albino one and still have your fingers. very cute! :suck:

the size of a rat's knackers will always disturb me though...
