I was forwarded to this link by Ebay who is presently investigating
the soliciting of spam to our account and posting false information
about us. To answer the concern posted by MLDHOC and others, allow me
to say...we offered a shipping calculator for his use. He was to
calculate his shipping charges and add it paypal. I supply a shipping
link and even cross reference it with UPS and USPS so everyone
understands what they are paying for. I then send a follow up email
PRIOR to shipping so everyone understands and agrees and has an
opportunity to make changes. He added poorly and then attacked us.
We did not send the product in a brown paper wrap but in a box that
was double wrapped and sent insured - even though he didn't pay for
it. Our only offense was being late and we followed up repeatedly to
let him know why.
MLDHOC also posted that he gave us a neutral rating because the
package arrived in good condition but now he says otherwise. If it
arrived so poorly, why not negative feedback? That is what it is
there for and if you would care to read his post on my account, you
will see he offered a neutral. Pretty generous for an alleged rip
This poster is frightenly harrassing and has been reported to Ebay and
AOL for repeat disturbing emails to our account. He has been put on a
block and possible suspension. I would steer clear of anyone who
retaliates by solicting spam and not a refund or an explanation. THAT
should fire up the warning flags.
Thanks for letting me post.
This was never about my bad for paying too much shipping, I own that one.
This has always been a warning to the community at large that, in my personal
experience, you are not a respectable, reputable buisness person and that you
overcharge for shipping.
You are just digging deeper. I talking about your own words were posted here
mocking a former customer.
Satisfied customers tell their friends.
Dissatisfied customers tell everyone.
One layer of torn brown paper, two layers of recycled shirtbox paper, poorly
taped on address labels, and a damaged kit box from which kit parts fell out
into my hands as I opened it.(old Italeri/Testors yellow box) does not equate
to a $7.68 expense on your part.
Would you care to explain that to the listening audience?
I have since discarded the wrapping, would you care to offer ANY proof you
insured the package?
As for changing my story, Deja the orig. thread and check.. same message from

Again, offer proof or be quiet
No, you got neutral feedback since I GOT the package, NOT because it was in
again, from ebay
"Neutral : pd 13.23 s/h on 10-19, rec. 11-14 std mail $5.55 I paid7.68 for brn
you sent what I paid (overpaid) for.
Nope. I have my kit. You barely held up your end of the deal.
To my way of thinking, you are still padding your profits and ripping ebay off
of their share by upping the 'handling' charges and not letting them get their

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, perhaps you've
misunderstood the situation.
I've read this thread and your response, and it seems that the problem is
with an excessive charge for substandard packing. I too have been charged
for high priced S&H on ebay auctions only to have the package arrive at my
doorstep wrapped in paper rather than boxed. Without contacting the seller
first, I have left negative feedback. In this day and age, packages are sent
in boxes. The last time wrapping parcels in paper was in vogue was about the
same time the Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup.
Lets get real folks.
As a seller myself, I state quite clearly that shipping will be ACTUAL usps
priority ship with confirmation, and a 2.00 handling fee. I also state that
I will send shipping cost before someone bids if they provide their zipcode.
2.00 bucks is for my time and travel to the post office. If this is not to
your liking, don't bid. Padding of profit, is a silly statement. You always
have the option NOT TO BID.
This doesn't add up. The reason that the merchant could give this
discount, is simply because the credit card company would otherwise
take a slice of aforementioned profit margin. If the merchant gives a
cash discount smaller than the amount the credit card company would
otherwise charge him, the only one to lose would be the credit card
company, whereas both the merchant and the customer would get a better
No merchant is required to accept credit cards. Those that do anticipate
that the added convenience to customers (who can then part with cash
they don't even have yet) will cause them to spend much more and
increase the merchant's total profit. The credit card company for its
part makes a lot of money on interest charges, but those aren't
guaranteed, whereas the per-transaction fees are assured. In the context
of eBay, sellers who don't want to part with the fees associated with
PayPal in return for prompt payment (and possibly increased customer
activity) ought to just dump the expense of doing business on the buyer
by requiring postal money orders or other secure paper.
T'was always your option not to bid. You chose to harrass and become
frighteningly obsessive after poorly applying wrong shipping. We paid
your insurance and sent your package that you described in your OWN
WORDS..."arrived in good condition". Now you say it was falling
apart? Sorry Mike...had I received an item that was falling apart "in
my hands" - that seller would not be given a neutral rating. This is
how it works Mike...shall we re-enter Ebay training?
You whine and complain because you can't add appropriate shipping. We
apply a $2.00 handling fee to everything. Perhaps someone can help
you understand how to operate the USPS.com link I give everyone an
option at searching. If you felt the shipping was too high, you had
the option to NOT bid. Had you felt it was a bad deal, you had the
option to contact us and ask us for a refund, had you felt you were
totally screwed, you had the option to post a NEGATIVE rating...all
three of which you had failed to do.
Your credibility tanked the minute I received several emails from
those disgusted with your post solciting spam. THAT was your
infraction and frankly the reason no one took you seriously here.
Rule of thumb Mike...if the shipping is too high? Don't bid.
Work with that one for now and come back for lesson two next week
