I sold my old laptop on ebay in August. The person then proceeded to tell me they wanted to return it. No problem- i clearly stated I did not accept returns as did ebay.
The person opened up a ticket and for some reason ebay allowed them to return it to me- it was out of my control.
I was outraged and pissed and i can get very emotional sometimes. It really hurt to have that $200 taken out of my bank account when i so desperately needed it.
When the box was returned I was too upset to open it. I didn’t even want to open it over Christmas break but I thought maybe I’d give the laptop to my uncle if it worked ok. (As it did when I mailed it.)
The laptop has a new, much cleaner battery that doesn’t work. aka… not my battery.
The laptop is missing its charger and for a 2007 macbook the charger is probably the most valuable part of the thing.
ebay has an understandable 90 day policy so this is all a mute point. I’m just pissed that I sold a perfectly working machine to someone and they were allowed to return it with a broken battery and no charger.
While this is technically (I suppose) my fault- ebay should not allow returns. It is a risk to purchase something on a user trading website and it’s your own fault if you don’t like what you get. Let the seller ratings tell the story for you and be the only sign of assurance that you will get what you like.
So after reading this all I ask of you is please do not buy or sell anything on ebay. There are hundreds of other websites to support- please just do not support this one. Thanks!
