The best "story" I got on Ebay back years ago turned out to be true.

Sold a few cards to the same guy for a couple dollars each. (Yeah, long enough ago that was a thing, covered fees by having a bit added on the shipping. )
A week goes by, no contact, nothing.
Send a gentle reminder to pay. People forget stuff, only about a 20$ sale total.
Get an email.......This is X girlfriend. He joined Ebay last week, on Friday, got drunk Friday night and bid on a LOT of stuff. And won most of it, he actually makes less in a couple months than he won and is freaking out a bit. Please have patience, we're going to try to get everything paid, but it'll take a while.
Oh, that's odd...So I check his items bid on list....

Well over 2000 items bid on almost all under $5. The total he owed was probably over $5000
So I told them to just pay whenever they could, figuring I'd never see anything.
Got a check about 2 weeks later

I may have been his only positive feedback.
