— Do Not Sell Outside The U.S. Using PayPal

The winner of one of my recent auctions is from the UK. (I am located in the US) A week after the buyer paid for the auction, I received an email from him, asking if it had been shipped. I informed him that it had been mailed and should be there within a couple of days. The following week, De I was checking over my Paypal transactions and noticed that payment for that auction had been refunded. I thought that it was a mistake, as I had not heard from PayPal or the buyer regarding this situation. Apparently, he had filed a Buyer Complaint with Paypal (for non-receipt of item) as soon as he found out that it had been mailed. Paypal claims to have sent me three email notifications (which is a BLATANT lie) but I didn’t respond, so they refunded his money. First of all, I check my email every single day and somehow, every other Paypal message has reached my Inbox – but mysteriously, not these three. Whatever. And it would not have mattered – because Paypal’s so-called “Seller Protection Policy” does not apply to packages mailed from the US to the UK. (But of course, their “Buyer Protection Policy” covers packages mailed from the US to the UK!) The Moral of the Story: Sellers Beware! By mailing items to an unconfirmed address in the US or any address in the UK – you are taking a risk. Paypal will issue a refund to anyone who claims that they did not receive their package. No questions asked – and you, the seller, will be out the merchandise, the payment, eBay fees, Paypal fees, and the cost of shipping – everyone wins – at your expense. Paypal’s system is flawed and completely unfair. I knew it would turn into a train wreck when they were acquired by eBay.

If you or your attorney direct any threats towards ComplainsBoard or its owners of this site, then said post will promptly and permanently be placed on our ineligible for arbitration list and the post will be locked forever. Our arbitration removal process is simple and straightforward, some foolish individuals chose other methods in an attempt to get content removed from this site. All of their efforts have failed and all of their arbitration offerings are permanently revoked. These individuals and or their attorneys have stupidly made threats, filed complaints with Google, filed DMCA Takedowns, filed court orders, complained to our web host, demanded or attempted to take legal action against the owners of this site. We have ZERO tolerance for this conduct and you can be assured that any removal attempt will ultimately fail!
Also, we just signed up with a site called Free Speech site that publishes legal threats and we will be sending all the legal threats we receive to. We will add a link to them shortly. The threats are published and indexed by the person making the threats and by the lawyer or other idiot who has never read Section 230 of the CDA and still wants to bother us with frivolous legal claims. In other words, your threats will cause your name to appear in another site, it’s what some call backfire. Don’t be stupid, you won’t scare us.
If you see the flashing text an alert “Ineligible For Arbitration” on any individual pages or post, then you should know that there is a ZERO chance of the posted content ever being removed. This ultimately means that the content will remain on this site indefinitely and there will be no exceptions.
