When did ebay remove the rights to leave bad feedback about buyers?
I just had an instance where this guy claimed an item wasnt shipped....i thought no problems i kept the shipping reciept.
Wing Yiu Lau
Buyer's ID: hkulecturer2011
Buyer's Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
2522 Continental Ave
El Monte, CA 91733-2733
..... but paypal approved his claim and deducted $13.27 from my account.
here is the kicker...i just realised you can no longer leave negative comments about buyers BUT when you click through and check the buyers profile you will see all these negative comments about him claiming the item was never received (even though they count to postive as thats the only way you can comment now).
Don't sell !!!! He will file claim to PAYPAL that item is not received!!! Seller: Member id danylee82 ( Feedback Score Of 91) Aug-11-11 22:15 -- (#120739603206) -- View Item --

So in the course of 1 month this buyer has made 7 claims against paypal and they have approved them all.
I wonder how long ebays market cap will stay like it is while they dont allow negative ratings against buyers??
I also wonder how longer before El Monte police department become interested in Mr Wing Yiu Lau?
