    Weve probably had this one before but sellers based in China listing that they are from the UK... Durham or Basildon for example....Aaaargh!

    I cant pick up on it everytime and maybe Im guilty for thinking a small LED, battery operated, motion activated light can be had for £3.89 posted. When I see Durham UK I dont want some Chinese seller trying it on. I usually double check with this sort of item so Im probably more annoyed with myself. Ok they want the business but can this be considered ok?

    Maybe the main problem is Im losing all sense of pricing in poundshop Britain.

    So Ive got an item on the slow boat from...... and I usually notice a marked rise in my details being sold for cold calling and emails. If there is a problem ebay will have to refund me because I have never had a Chinese seller properly refund me

    Although I feel like the cheapskate I am.....this is plainly fraudulent. If I listed I was somewhere else its fraudulent information. I will wait and see if they have a warehouse in the UK but what are your bets on that? I should report it to ebay but nothing seems to get done and these sellers have my address

    Although you’ll surprised who sells your details, even companies who you think would not. A few times I have signed up for something but used a different name and kept track of who got what name. It was interesting to see what marketing I received from new companies and I knew who gave them the details by the name that was shown.

    Oh yes once the information is out there thay are all at it. Even the council sells my info to any company thats interested in the voters roll.

    I did notice an increase in paypal phishing emails once I had transactions in the far east. Then again there are surely some great sellers there and Im not being racist about it.

    I had a great stylus gauge from Hong Kong but I knew that was coming from HK.

    I once received half (yes half) a coax plug when this happened before and then some Monty Python dirty fork sketch took place where the customer service bod was going to lose his/her livelihood if I complained....Never got a refund though...ebay had to do it.

    Gets me about once a year this problem and I must be more careful to check the seller details

    Seems to be a different business ethic. I have your money for a faulty product and you will not get it back.

    not quite sure how eBay think that this scenario ( and I've been through it) is a positive buying experience that encourages casual buyers to re use their platform, never mind those of us who understand the ins & outs.

    The sooner that eBay goes down and gets bought out by google the better.. At least we'll know that search will fecking work properly.......

    The way EBay keeps raising their rates, and cutting costs, they should be rolling in money! But in these modern times, you never know who may be bought out next? eBay used to give 2% EBay Bucks back for most purchases, I never really let it influence my purchases, but it was nice after you’ve bought a piece of stereo or two to get some spending money back. But, the greedy just couldn’t stand it! They first said that any EBay bucks under $5 would not be awarded, then they changed it to 1%. Like they aren’t making any money? Why did they bother offering it in the first place if they really didn’t want to? If they have EBay bucks or not will not affect my buying habits, but this just seems greedy on their part. They’d have been better if they had never brought it up.

    Don't recall it here either. Used to get 10% off vouchers regularly at one time though. I rarely use the bay now but was a big user once.
