Retailers, Manufacturers, ePay, AudiogoN, Paypal or whatever. Buying and selling advice.

All listings deleted.

I was told I wouldn't be debited until tracking showed I got the item back. Well, yesterday I was debited, and I haven't received anything back from the "buyer" at all. I'll update if things change, but as of right now this transaction is looking like a total loss and I expect no help whatsoever from eBay. It was the most valuable item from the whole collection that I was working with.

I think my long and honorable track record proves I'm a reasonable seller. This incident, to me, represents an unacceptable loss of control over my own destiny as a seller and opens the door wide to bare-faced fraud that eBay will actually help facilitate. Even if I was to insure over a certain $ amount, cheaper records will be similarly vulnerable--nobody (including me) is going to pay to insure a $10 record. There simply are no sufficient safeguards for sellers here against unscrupulous individuals. It wasn't always like this. I have ended all my listings and will be pursuing other avenues for selling what I have left. It was a good run while it lasted. God forbid I have to try to make a living this way ever again. I don't think it can be considered viable anymore.
