Default OT need advice please. First EBay sale..block user minjkhri

Update: Although the eBay buyer minjkhri has continued to buy and pay for other items on eBay after buying my card, he refuses to pay me, saying he wants another 10 days. The item was sold on September 5th via buy it now, and now he says he cannot pay me until September 26th, a full three weeks after buying my item.

Please make sure to block eBay user ID: minjkhri. Another seller has noted the same buyer refused to pay for their buy it now purchase, and the buyer never responded to their inquiries. I would appreciate your blocking this buyer. Additionally, I would appreciate if you would respond to this thread stating that the buyer has been blocked. The only way these people will be held accountable is by us. eBay does nothing to help us, so we have to help each other. Thank you.

Hi guys,

So, on September 5th, I sold my first item on EBay, a Topps Prime Russell Wilson football card with a certified autograph and 4 uniform swatches. The buyer hit buy it now. The cost was $90.00. When I did not receive payment, I sent the following message to the buyer:

Quote:
Dear minjkhri,

Thank you for your purchase. The card will be mailed, and a tracking number provided within 24 hours of payment receipt. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you!

William

A little before 10pm the next day, I received this message from the buyer:

Quote:
Dear lambeausouth923,

Ok great sorry for delay i get paid thurs day night will be made soon after hope this is ok.thanks chris

- minjkhri
I responded back the next morning at about 6:30 am

Quote:
Dear minjkhri,

Chris,

That will be fine. Please send it in when you can, and then I'll take it over to the post office.

Have a good week,

William

10 minutes after I sent this message, I receive this back:

Quote:
Dear lambeausouth923,

Ok thanks its a gift i need it by the 21 of sept.i will leave great feedback.

- minjkhri
I looked at my EBay account on Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday night. Nothing. Now I'm getting miffed. I sent this to him Monday morning.

Quote:
Dear minjkhri,

Chris,

This Russell Wilson card was sold to you on September 5th. On the evening of September 7th, you responded to the message I sent regarding the card's shipment, which was to commence upon receipt of payment. You told me that Sunday evening, September 7th at 9:43 pm, that you got paid on Thursday the 11th, and that you would make the payment soon after then. I advised you that was fine. You then informed me that you needed the card by the 21st, as it was to be a gift.

It is now Monday morning September the 15th, and payment still has not been received. I've given you three additional days after your pay day, and I have as of yet not received the payment you promised you would make. Payment needs to be received no later than Tuesday evening the 16th to ensure the card can be mailed in time for delivery no later than the 21st.

Please resolve this matter with your prompt payment.

Thank you,

William
I received this message back yesterday morning:

Dear lambeausouth923,

Hi can u please cancel my cousin michael garcia took his life on the day of monday night iam havin trouble right now good feedback will be left for u i cant seem to come up with that money due too this if u dont belive u can see him on facebook .once again thank u.

- minjkhri
Now, this is BS, and we all know it. How do I know? Because their profile shows them buying and paying for all sorts of other stuff.

http://www.ebay.com/usr/minjkhri

User name is minjkhri

They have 5 feedbacks on their homepage showing items bought and paid for just since the 14th. All in all, 44 buyer feedbacks within the last month, including one noting the buyer pulled the same buy it now, no payment BS.

Do I have any recourse at all with EBay? I know I should probably be laughing as I write that, but do I have any kind of leverage with the buyer?

Thanks, gang.

Just file the unpaid strike, block and move on. Unfortunately, in the Ebay of today, loony buyers are the norm.

Bill,It's great you didn't ship the card. That's the positive side to this. Most Ebay buyers are not that bad. Bad luck with the buyer , but you still have the goods to try and sell again.
Good luck!
Paul

What those guys said.

Sorry this happened to you on your first transaction on Ebay.

I'm pretty lucky, this only happens to me a couple times a year or so, but I have several blocks in place for regular non-paying bidders, and the typical flakes.

Had similar things happen to me on ebay. Dad is all of sudden sick, cousin's wife is pregnant, etc. Just give the unpaid strike through ebay and move on. Unfortunately it happens but thank you for letting us know about the shady buyer.

Bill,

Sorry that you had a rough start. Not all buyers are like that. But you will get your share of nuts out there.

Welcome to selling on eBay.
