Think this feedback might have set some sort of ebay record for the worst ever?


http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=alisher71&ite ms=25&page=2&frompage=-1&iid=-1&de=off

The police are in on it;

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/10619447/

The seller seems to have planned it, most of the bidders leaving negatives have auctions that end before the seller's feedback starts getting bad...therefore the bidders can't really be faulted and it definitely looks suspicious.




This next person isn't being investigated by the police, but it's still interesting because of the erratic behaviour; up until Nov 1st, the seller was leaving negatives for anyone who dared question his shipping/delivery time, but things seemed to have mellowed since the beginning of November....seller must have been having issues, clearly, but it's unclear reading the feedback whether everyone got their merchandise during that "difficult time" ;

I've had my share of whacko questions from bidders and weirdness from sellers and buyers...but thankfully nothing like these two.

In keeping this Allman-related, I post this as a heads up to all my brothers and sisters who use ebay seeking Allman stuff.
Sometimes that second hand Archive release might seem cheaper than getting it at Hittin' The Note, but the cost isn't calculated with private sellers until the item has arrived and it's condition verified.

Now wiith Hittin' The Note... you're dealing with friends. No worries about weirdness because there's no malicious intent or some odd dude taking out his personal life on his customers...it's just the Peach gang who do a damn good job shipping the music to satisfied customers.





On a quick personal note, I've now finished the book I received as a Christmas present, "A Dummy's Guide to Ass-kissing" and it's available if anyone wants to borrow it.

anybody else think that somebody else got ahold of the user name and password and started screwing with everyone? they have nearly all positive feedback until about november. it all goes downhill from there.

I suspect this was a long term plan in the works. Make a bunch of small sales, get credibility with positive feedbacks then go for the kill. It looks like the thievery took place over about a month, reel in the cash and run. By refusing credit card or PayPal payments they took everyones buyer protection away.

Matt, the people who bought from him most likely did so before the feedback went downhill...I think the negatives start on the 13th and many of them given after are auctions ending before the 5th.

The positive feedback up to November might have been designed to set up a $132,000 rip-off. While hypothetically it's possible that someone has hijacked the seller's ID, it's still only a remote possiblity, and given the replies and evidence, I'd say it's intentional fraud.

How did you run across this? I buy and sell on ebay all the time. Its cool. I save dough. I make dough. But yes, there are some real messed up people on there sometimes. The camera guys in your first link were on some show about ebay and were taken to court. At least I am pretty sure it was them. Funny stuff.
