My Childrens' Toy Musk Ox was Sold to Another Thrift Store Client

I yesterday went to a thrift store that I used to visit several years ago. The store was very busy with clients on a Sunday and I spent a long time looking thru lots of collectibles.  The only things I found were a very clean used childrens' Musk Ox toy that had a baby Ox on top and a Yamaha Baroque Alto recorder.  The Musk Ox was large and I asked the cashier to hold it for me.  I later walked to the cashier and went to pay for both when I sadly found out that they'd sold my Musk Ox to…

eBay Feedback Score Modification -- Help for Sellers with Negative Feedback

  I'd been on eBay for at least 9 years, had only one negative feedback from a buyer about a year ago; it took  me a full year to have my score move from 97 up to 98.9.  A member's eBay feedback score is supposed to be calculated based on the prior 12 month period, however 12 months had passed and the one negative feedback was still affecting my score.  I assumed that the one negative would automatically be deleted after a year however it remained in place.  I called eBay customer support…

eBay Sellers Beware of Buyer Powercreditbay for False Item Not Received Claims

  I've been selling on eBay for about 8 years and just went thru my worst experience on the site.  I sold a vintage Waltham watch to this buyer Powercreditbay on November 13, 2011; this buyer is a resident of China and told me to ship the watch to another person in Brooklyn, New York.  I don't ship overseas and have overseas buyers' blocked, my auctions are available for USA shipping only.  I was paid thru PayPal on Sunday, November 14th and planned to ship the watch on Monday morning.  On…
