What Part Of Do Not Contact Me Is so Hard To Understand???

Yesterday, I got an offer on the Rolodex for $21

Before I could respond, I received two messages. The first one:

"I withdraw my offer. I found a new one for $35 and free shipping. I hate to withdraw my offer but you are just asking way too much."

Second message:

"you are asking what it might cost for a new file but yours is used. your shipping costs are outrageous. I should not have offered this much due to the shipping costs and it being used."

I responded to her first message:

Good for you!!!

I responded to her second message:

"Mine is new but I had to put used as it is missing the A. You are incredibly rude. All you had to do was ask me to decline without being rude about it. If you think it is too much, you make an offer, not be a jerk about it."

Today, I get a response although I had blocked her.

"missing an a only? you describe it as having wear signs plus the a missing. you were asking more for a used one with wear and missing part more than a brand new one. in fact you were asking more than anyone on ebay. now who should you be mad at?"

First off, I have a best offer on this and when I checked other listings, mine was around the same price. This Rolodex brand new is $60. I am asking $35 OBO and as for the shipping, I use calculated shipping and it is what the post office charges. 

I know I should not engage with this person but I couldn't help myself. I wrote the following:

"obviously you have nothing better to do with your time. I have seen all the negative feedback you have left on I am surpised you are even allowed to buy on Ebay. If you actually read my description, it does not say anywhere that there is signs of wear. Stop contacting me or I will report you to Ebay for harassment and judging by your history, they will agree with me."

I didn't wait for her to reply and I called Ebay. The rep was really nice and looked at her history and said they would contact her. I can only imagine how many other sellers she has harassed to get her way.

She sent me another message a few minutes ago:

"report me then. I am not trying to hide anything i have written. just some sellers still on ebay are once again trying to rip off people. you better believe i will say something when i see it."

The rep I talked with told me not to respond to any of her messages. I want to so bad but I am just going to ignore it. I think some people just thrive on this type of confrontation and I am not going to engage her.

Luckily, the good buyers outweigh these nut cases.

Her id is charlsyeh. Block her. Block her now!!! 


  1. OMG, I can't believe all the bad feedback that jerk has given -- not a single positive. I hope eBay will give him/her the boot. Thanks so much for the warning about this idiot! I don't sell that much anymore but have blocked that user ID anyway.


  2. Becky, that is one nightmare buyer right there - you were lucky to escape her evil trap. Even though I rarely get buyers from the US, this one is going on my blocked list. *shudder*

  3. Help, how do I add this buyer to my blocked list? I can't seem to find that option in my settings. Thanks.

    1. Under "My Ebay Selling Manager Summary" there should be a section titled "Alerts and To Do"s. Under the "To Do" part it should say "Block Bidders" click on that. It will bring up Buyer/Bidder Management. There should be a higlighted area that says "Add an Ebay user to my block bidder/buyer list. Click on that and add the user's id.

    2. Found it. Thank you.

  4. Wow, what a jerk. I read the feedback and he sounds like a nightmare!

  5. A good tip is once you've found the "block bidders" page, you can add it to "Shortcuts" on your My Ebay Summary page for quick access.

  6. Just found your blog today but have been on eBay since the beginning and she/he/it is the worst I've ever seen. We should pool our resources and get them some very strong meds....and a straight jacket.

    eBay should have banned her/him/it ages ago.
