*i purchased an item on 15 dec 2007 on ebay
*the seller did not give me their bank account details until 19 dec 07
*i transferred the money into their bank account on 19/12/07
27/12/07 i sent an email to the seller asking if they had received payment & posted the dress? - i got no reply
1/1/08 i sent another message to the seller again asking if payment had been received and the dress posted? - no reply
2/1/08 i filed a dispute with ebay
5/1/08 - i sent another message to the seller saying i had not gotten any reply , what is going on has the dress been posted?
8/1/08 i got an email from the seller saying that she had been away on holidays & would post the dress ASAP.
17/1/08 - i still had not rec'd the dress , the dispute filed with ebay was closed & the matter reported to ebay trust & safety
17/1/08 - i sent another message to seller no reply
by this stage i felt that i had well & truly been scammed - that i was never going to receive item & that i would NEVER transfer money into anyone's bank account ever again
on 24/1/08 - still had not received item, so i left negative feedback, which i felt i was entitled to - as it had been 1.5 months since the auction ended
then the seller left negative feedback for me saying,
'very disappointing, did not try to resolve with me first'
NOW THAT IS AN ABSOLUTE LIE
i sent multiple emails to seller & lodged dispute with ebay to try & resolve problem over a period of 1.5 months before i left negative feedback
now i have negative feedback which i am worried is going to affect my ability to sell items in the future?
what can i do?
