With a 100% positive feedback of over 530 I advertised a car for sale.
The ad was clear - winning bidder to pay deposit via paypal within 24 hours, collection within a week.
Car was "won" by a bidder with a "4" rating, No deposit was received. No collection, NEGATIVE FEEDBACK WAS RECEIVED.
Ebay would not remove it as I was told it did not "contravene its removal guidelines".
My rating dropped to 95% and my reputation is damaged as a result.
Ebay's protection of dubious buyers is completely ridiculous.
From now on I shall buy but never again sell on ebay.
