    Ebay seems to encourage it I noticed. I've done it a few times myself with some success.

    I shipped an item inside a box that previously held a large bottle of vitamins.

    The buyer just demanded a refund, asking why I sent her a box of vitamins.

    She hadn't bothered looking inside the box before asking for said refund...

    That sounds about right.

    I'm selling A PART of an item on ebay right now. It says in the title, the description, and shows what's included in the photos. However, because I know the idiocy, I always message after someone has bought an item like this and confirm that they realize they are only buying the part advertised. 2/10 times, I'd say, they say, "Oh, I thought it was for the actual item," or some variation of that. Then I refund them.

    It's as bad or worse as guys messaging me asking what kind of deal I can give them, despite it stating that I don't do deals or offers in the description.

    This gives me more reason to ignore messages asking for special deals.

    I've had several sellers wait a week to ship. Maybe that's not a big deal to some, but in today's world, is slow to move/ship. I always ship that day or the next when someone buys something from me (which is the practice of most sellers now).

    So this is pretty annoying.

    Looking for a DC Direct Ed McGuinness-style Hal Jordan Green Lantern from the "JLA Classified Classics" line. Apparently, it's somewhat rare or at least doesn't turn up very often. Ordered one last week on eBay, like $32 after shipping and taxes, no problem... two days or so later, the seller sends me a refund notice saying that the order was cancelled because of "damage".

    Figure okay, this happens; hop on and order another one from who I assume to be a different seller - although it's interesting that the cost after tax and shipping was exactly the same down to the penny. This one ships out, and then today I get a message from this seller saying that he refunded my money because FedEx lost the package.

    And of course, right now there aren't any more eBay listings for this figure. I'm sure it'll turn up again, but this is annoying and somehow I'm not convinced that it's all a big coincidence.
