This listing is uses photos and a partial description of a fan that I sold several months ago.  The listing was reported to eBay on July 10th, 14th, and 21st yet still remains.  Just spoke with eBay and they cannot tell me what has been done or will be done because it is not my listing.  Good Luck to the buyer.

Yea look at his feedback. He has sold a bunch of 99 cent items and then one $180 item he got a bad feedback and the customer still never received the item. WOW how can ebay keep him on there?

I personally reported that fan at least five times to Ebay.. eBay will not remove it.. this tells you a lot about eBay. also why I'm complaining here about eBay it used to be that you had to go out of your way to have your item be free shipping now you have to go out of your way for it to not be free shipping this little change cost me $60.. everyone needs to be aware

Another lister just sold it too.I looked at the seller feedback and they have sold it twice with a did not receive item.When  I first started this journey I got ripped off in the same fashion.It was $75.
It was such a hassle that I just wrote it off as lesson learned. :violin:And the seller shut down and was gone.

This should be enough evidence to shut them down... I also reported it.

I have reported them a minimum of 6 times... eBay will do nothing about it... years ago I had one of my fan pictures stolen straight from eBay. Nothing was done about it...

eBay is using Dominion software.

Undoubtedly, it's on the up and up.

Nevermind what your eyes see.





p.s.     Nothing going on here.
                   Now move on!

I actually heard that Ebay customer service was once the "Trump Election Fraud Hotline." That's good, because the guy who listed that fan is probably the same guy who voted more than once and looks like this....

I had one of my listings resold months after I listed it.  eBay wouldn’t help so I won the bid and confronted the seller.

I agree 100% with Rick, however, in our hobby, there are lots of people who will give substantially more for the "common fans" that collectors turn their noses up at. Selling something like an Emerson 77xxx for $100+ helps subsidize the better purchases we make and, unfortunately, there's really no way to reach the "masses" from the BST and Ebay is the best bet.
