Scammer on eBay | motogearforyou

Recommended Posts

eBay seller MOTOGEARFORYOU is a scammer.

 

They will change their name but if you don't get lazy like I did you can avoid this situation.

 

Always go to the recent reviews for a seller you are evaluating and check for negatives in the past month.

I did not do this for this seller because I was in a hurry and paid the price. There were plenty from the past few months.


It was a seat cover and I was sent the wrong one.

Been on eBay for over 10 years and have made thousands of purchases across multiple accounts for personal and business and this is my first time not being able to resolve a situation.

 

Never buy from MOTOGEARFORYOU on eBay. They are an "Arizona based textile company" so look out for a company fitting that bill.

been on ebay for yrs, not many times have i been taken for a ride ?, but i will tell you..i have had to resolve a couple issues. tip: if you get ripped off ?, file a complaint with paypal, if you do not get your money back from the seller ?, paypal will make it right with you, then they go after the seller.

Best believe I'm getting my $25 back on principal. 😁

 

It's going to cost me more than double in time spent dealing with it but happy to do it.

 

Paypal is great as a buyer but I'm not a fan of the seller side of things. Had some money held arbitrarily on a business transaction.

I quit selling on ebay.  Fees have gotten outrageous, and as you said, ZERO protection for the seller.    I still buy there, and if it's someone I know is good/ trustworthy, and I manage to get their "off ebay" information I deal with them directly to save them the ebay fees.

 

I'm still protected by my credit card company if they try to screw me.

you might ask him why then.... personaly i wouldn't let him set foot on my property ... lol ... jeep i went to be a seller on ebay and was given a notice .... I couldn't unless i used a credit card on my account ((i have too have fraud  pertection, and a limit on my cards)  . that's when i gave up on trying and went via paypal buying only... and i have a spotless buyers rating!! 8 years running... thank goodness i don't need anything right now  (no rare honda items) they've gotten very strict on people ... even those with a good standing history!!

nope.... never had an issue with paypal...  as a rule of thumb... i would be carefull about linking a credit card / debit card from a main bank account .. also limit as to how much money you have in your paypal account, and check it often!!!

I try not to use debit or use a bank account, perfer using a credit card.  If I get scammed it would be on the credit card, not on all my bank accounts, life savings (not much there, lol) etc., all gone, broke and up that creek, would rather let Mastercard deal with it.

Always has been very good on the buyer side of things.

 

The issue for me is when you are a seller and you get a large amount of money in your account and want to withdraw it.

Our business funds were frozen for over 3 months while Paypal did nothing and ultimately never gave a reason.

I found out later that it is a super common issue but again it is only trouble on the seller's side.

 

I ended up going with this company for the replacement seat cover.

My package went from Piggott, AR to Memphis, TN and back to AR. Typical FedEX 😄

I have an account linked to my paypal that has very little money in it at any given time.


I ALWAYS use a credit card.  If Paypal tries to hose me, I can file a claim with the credit card company.

 

That's for buying though.


I quit selling after I sold a Warn winch remote (old 8274 upright winch) and the buyer said it didn't work.  Then I had to wait and hope that I actually got it back, and not a "brick in a box" which apparently is quite common these days.  I ate shipping both ways, remote worked fine, buyer probably found one cheaper somewhere else and decided to make me shell out $30 in shipping back and forth.

 

So I'm done selling on ebay.

The only problem I have had with PayPal is trying to get my money out of PayPal after someone put money in to the account , that takes an act of congress

i always hated when my shipments came shipped by FedEx ..... united parcel service was always on time ... but with what's going on.... it's not like that any longer .... but there still hands down more reliable ... then FedEx ...

eBay...

 

How many of you know that sellers have multiple accounts and "competing" listings?

 

Perfect example for you below to look over. Copy and pasted directly from eBay.

Notice how the seller name (redacted by me as individuals are not relevant) is different but the feedback is exactly the same?

 

Multiple uses below of ...

"Good buyer, prompt payment, valued customer, highly recommended."

"Thank you for an easy, pleasant transaction. Excellent buyer. A++++++."

"Quick response and fast payment. Perfect! THANKS!!"

 

and more...

 

The transactions are sometimes months apart but the same feedback and different sellers.

 

The best/worst part is that it doesn't actually even mean anything. Good sellers do this kind of thing too. Competing in the environment that eBay creates...

 

If some of you wonder why people complain about being sellers on eBay... this kind of thing is a good example of that.

Thank you for reading
