RE: Ebay rip off.
But it didn't happen to me,but a member
of the mercedesshop forum.
The worst part is that "importbaron/benzbaron/
bigbabbo" seems to know the ebay rules really
well and uses them in his advantage.
Somehow he manages to make the bidders look
bad and have ebay punish them.
But what to do:you pay for the item
then seller never sends the item?
After weeks of emails that never get
aswered you try to recover your money.
Good that ebay has a system to recover some
of your money when this happens,but when
you leave negative feedback for this person
he flips out and gives it a twist,saying you
stopped payment and it is your fault and not his.
On top of that he has ebay remove the negative
feedback left for him and leaves negative
feedback for you plus a nasty message to booth.
And since the feedback for him is altered,you
end up being the one that looks bad.
I have learned not to buy parts thru ebay.
I buy parts at www.performanceproducts.com
(site sponsor) or www.mercedessource.com
I have a limited budget so I need to buy
the best parts possible for the best price
I have bought parts at PP and MS but not yet
In both cases I received good service.
Some people like www.fastlane.com
(mercedesshop site sponsor)for their quick
delivery(1-2 days)good service and free
shipping over $100.
But unfortunately some parts end up being
$20+ more expensive.
I'm not in a hurry and don't mind waiting
a few extra days for my order if I can save
I,in no way intend to bash or favour anyone.
Just like these businesses need to take care
of the bottom line,so do I.
In case of "importbaron/benzbaron/bigbabbo"
he just plainly rips people off and we
should avoid him like the plague and
try to educate and inform others.
Since people like this only understand one
thing($$$$$$$)the only way to stop them,
is to stop buying from them and make them feel
it where it hurts.
