I am writing this review as I believe from my own personal experience of 5 years of trading on ebay sellers need to protect themselves from the buyer Scammers. Not all are scammers but from my experience i have had quite a few that are. Here is the biggest scam of all. I offer insurance and tracking on all my items. 100% of the time they refuse. I have 5 ebay accounts on ebay as I sell different products. I have had the same buyer come to all 5 accounts buy something and on all 5 occasions they have claimed the item has gone missing.  After the 1st bought item I realised the user name a second time on one of my other accounts and sent this item recorded. Again this item did not get there. After several months later of investigations with royal mail it turns out that the customer had made an arrangement with there postman to leave there parcel by the gate so they did not sign for it. On all occasions this buyer went and claimed through paypal on every occasion. I have also had a lot of big problems with Flats in glasgow. On every and i mean every occasion they have not got there and they have never got back to me either.  Because of this reason and the fact we are not allowed to let other sellers know about this as our feedback rights have been taken away i thought i would let ebay sellers read this review and i am going to list any buyers that have scammed me. left me negative feedback and claimed through paypal and signed for there parcels.

Rule number 1 :   If you can afford the recorded delivery do this. This has lowered my paypal claims. It also lets the customer know that you have posted the parcel.

Rule Number 2. If they claim through paypal and the tracking number does not go through on royal mail please be patient as sometimes this does take a while to go through on busy periods.  Please give the tracking number to the customer also.

Rule number 3 : Do not send to alternative addresses only them registered with paypal.recvieved.

USER ID LEFT NEGATIVE FEEDBACK AND SIGNED FOR HER PARCL AND DID A PAYPAL CLAIM.

I sent everything recorded on my websites and never have problems. The only problem i have ever encountered is on ebay!

Since the feedback system has changed i have more negative feedback for items getting stolen and customers signing for parcels denying they have received.
