Bad seller alert sanjosecomics on ebay

Hello People:
I am just here to warn others of a horrible seller on ebay
About Sept 20th, 2003, I won two auctions from a seller on ebay known as
visitsanjosecomics, and they mention it takes them 30 days to get items to the customers after payment is received.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item146362824
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item146017164
well I emailed them on Sept 25th, 2003, and they told me the payment has been received, and the items will be out in 30 days.
well I waited, and I emailed them Nov 1st, 2003, and they replied that the items will be out within a week, well it is now December 1st , 2003 and I have gotten no replies to the emails I have sent within the last 2 weeks.
they have been getting a lot of negative feedbacks and they made their feedback private so people can't read it, this is unfair to others on ebay.
I notified the internet fraud agency and ebay, hopefully something comes of all this.

Thanks for the warning. I appreciate every one of these warnings.
I had a recent experience, not plesant, but nowhere near as bad as yours, with teamjoedawn that dragged up quite a bit of stuff around here. Some here on RMS saw fit to 'inform' ebay about me posting their username and email with a sarcastic ' go get them spambots'
Upside is I got a 'you might not have known it was a no-no' note from Ebay, the seller posted here and came across as a huge jerk, and life goes on.
Keep us informed.

Wow - honesty must be very challenging for you. I was copied on all the warnings that were given to you by Ebay, Mike and the clearest one was threatening you with a termination of membership should you ever harrass and post personal information about another user again. We give only a web account and would have never trusted you with our names or personal email addresses so the solicitation you asked for was directed to a dead account that is no longer in use. Ebay took this very seriously and from yesterday's email by them, are not finished. The sitaution is quite a bit stronger than you are leading everyone here to believe. You offered our email address to several spam sites and were reported to Ebay and AOL both of whom investigated you and your history and found you in violation.
Thankfully more people found you ridiculous than took you seriously. I have over 10 emails from posters who thought you were a joke.
And you are.

    Hmmm... As an outsider looking in, I went to the auctions in question and found the USPS shipping calculator teamjoedawn prescribes. I plugged in my ZIP Code and saw what I thought was a high charge to ship from VA to PA for a 1/72nd AC-130A ($11.11). Then, in the finer print and easily glossed over was:
"All prices include any packaging and handling fees charged by the seller."
    So, it would appear to me that some sort of additional fee is being assessed by teamjoedawn though there's no way to calculate how much. If the weight of the parcel were listed, you could get a price from USPS for shipping and subtract the markup, negotiating from there. Using the USPS as a shield to deflect criticism about seemingly contrived shipping is misleading as it's not straight shipping that's quoted. You shouldn't hide behind USPS, inferring it's "their" price being quoted.
    In teamjoedawn's defense, they do have all the numbers right in front of you to assist in making your decision. You can't claim ignorance of the shipping rates as they are spelled out, high though they may be.
    My question is, where did they get this calculator? Is it an eBay option? It seems to give the seller a nice chance to pad the final price.

    After a little looking around, the calculator is indeed an eBay service. Also, if you click on the icon of the calculator in that window, another dialog box pops up to let you know what shipping rate will be applied to the auction -- in the case of the AC-130A, USPS Parcel Post, the least expensive rate, so it would appear there's some padding taking place. It enables the seller to not admit to charging 'handling' to the total price.     So, open your eyes, use some logic and make informed decisions.

Using USPS Priority Mail rates for the zip and size (about $3.75) he's padding it about $7, almost 200%.
And remember, Priority Mail boxes are free and the boxes may be delivered to your home or place of work for free. Also, the USPS will pick up from your home or place of work for free.

Last time I checked there was a $10 charge for parcel pickup. Not only that, postage had to be affixed in advance.

So ... how many of us have put Teamjoedawn on our list of 'Gotta buy from this guy' sellers?
Thought so.

Yeah, mine too, and I don't even bother usually. To make it, you have to be dishonest, stupid AND boring.

Too many other folks to buy from. Not having been burned yet in over 500 transactions, I'm not pressing my luck.
I've been keen on checking folks most recent feedback, especially lukewarm positives or neutrals. Seems like folks who have several hundreds of positive feedbacks are apt to get in over their heads just as quickly as newbies. Rob Gronovius Visit my motor pool in the www.armorama.com gallery

Please continue to feed the troll.
Every time you (Joe or Dawn) post here and use the 'dead' account without a spamblock in place, you further dilute any possilbe hope of proving any lasting harm was done to you by my posting your email address here.
As for posting your personal information to spam sites, much like my other challenges all of which have gone unanswered and unproven, please offer ANY shred of evidence proving this to be true.
I'm still waiting for the proof you provided insurance insurance on the package by the way.
As for the wrath of ebay being called down onto my head, please, get real. They don't care.
From their latest message to me. Do please notice I'm actually citing evidence to support my position, not just running my mouth.

another user on ANY online public area was not sent as a warning, but as an educational tool. When eBay receives a complaint about a user publishing the contact information of another user online in a public place, we investigate, and send an informational notice if appropriate. Since there was proof provided, a notice was sent to you to let you know about our publishing the contact information in a public area policy. It was not intended to cause you any inconvenience. It was intended only to educate you on our rules.
So if this sounds to you like something more serious than a slap on the wrist and a 'go play nice', we don't seem to be reading the same mail here. Mike please remove "diespam" to reply

I was just there, what kind of garbage is this 'private' feedback..?!?!?!?
Rats and a sinking ship I think. That's a BIG warning that the seller and Ebay are both fading fast.
Private feedback.. whata load!

Yeha I just had one of these guys, rcrobert. He gad some items that were reasonably rare enough and that I wanted, but his feedback was private. I bid on an item and then got his phone number and called him. I tlaked to his wife and she gave me a story about an abusive buyer. What the hell I give anything a chance once. Needless to say I became an abusive buyer. I bought 4 items andwould have bought more if they'd answered emails promptly or shipped what I'd already bought. Was lied to once about a shipping date. I now have the items and of course one is incomplete. I emailed and got apologies and a promise to send the part. Frankly I doubt I'll see it. The part will be easy enough to fabricate.
This private feedback is bullshit. The feedback system is supposed to be a gauge of the promptness and completeness of the transaction, both for buyer and seller. meanwhile I have a very bad feedback form a scumbag who misrepresented a product and then didn't answer emails. I took it to Square Trade but that's a pile of crap, too.
