I have finally had my first negative eBay experienced. After years and dozens of purchases, the Evil eBayer has struck!
After committing to purchase an item from this person, I accidentally double-clicked the PayPal "pay" button, sending $122.36 TWICE. The seller immediately promised to refund my money, but here it is, 11 days later, and nothing. My last communication from her was three days ago, when she promised yet again to send money.
My friend and boss at the grooming shop has had almost 100% bad experiences with Etsy sellers, which I think is truly awful. Sellers who don't hold up their end of the bargain give us HONEST sellers a bad name!
