Gah. A Gen Xer at my workplace was telling me about her husband, who was getting full pay from his employer while staying home because of some technical error that the employer had made in preparing the workplace for him. After he languished in this manner for a couple of weeks, she tells me he grew bored and began to trade on eBay, buying and selling a laptop, for instance. Being a man of keen intellect, he bought and sold one laptop for a profit of several hundred dollars, she went on to report.

Well, that's great, I said. Something to keep him occupied, and a few extra bucks for the household.

Then she had to tell me that the way he made the profit was by creating at least one shill to drive up the bidding, at the expense of the honest, interested party, of course. When I expressed disapproval, she seemed honestly taken aback. This is in keeping with a moral code that has "what can I get away with?" as its foundation.

Interesting that none of the Id's involved have bid on each other's auctions since the report went to ebay.

why are you so sad ,if you want items i am bidding on ,just bid,have you nothing better to do if you want proof of purchases, i can provide them, otherwise i suggest you practice what you preach and we are watching you,so look out ,before i ring police for nuicance calls


Snake:

Firstly, I see you have about the same grasp of the english language that your mate does. This somehow does not surprise me.

Go ahead and ring the police - shill bidding is an offence under the law punishable by a jail term. I'm sure that they will be more interested in investigating fraud in their own country than sending Interpol around to look at my email program. Of course, I will be more than happy to furnish the British police with the evidence which we have collected.

Go ahead and watch me - I "practice what I preach" - and you might learn something about how to trade honestly and still make a profit. By the way, I was a founding member of ebay and my opinions are held in good stead by the staffers.

*sigh*

It's like shooting fish in a pond.

Loser's mate:

i am copying letter you sent me , i am an old woman living alone and find this email as threating,if you were a trusting ebayer you would not threaten me roz


Snake:

Only a dishonest person would be threatened by the thought of a police report.

And I'm not a "trusting" ebayer - one would have thought that that was obvious to you by now. I am a "trusted" ebayer.

Always wondered why some sellers have "DO NOT OFFER TO PAY ME IN POSTAGE STAMPS" in their terms. I guess it was just a matter of time........

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM EBAY: EBAY RAISES IT'S FINAL VALUE FEES BY 10%!! WOOHOO, WE'RE GONNA BE RICH.

Dear,

This is an important clarification to our announcement regarding changes to eBay's GST Policy. Please read carefully.

Since 1 July 2000 eBay has strongly recommended that all members include GST in listings, where applicable. As of 13 June 2005 all items listed must include the GST component in the price of the item from the time it is listed, where GST is applicable.

eBay has taken this position to require that all items be GST inclusive after receiving feedback from members who felt confused or disappointed if a seller later charged an additional amount in respect of GST. This policy has also been implemented after liaising with the ACCC and reinforces our marketplace as being an open and transparent one.


Sellers
If you are a seller who is required to be registered for and pay GST, you must ensure that the GST component is included in the price of the item from the time the item is listed. You must not add GST on top of the final bidding price or Buy It Now price once your item has been won or bought. Sales to overseas buyers are considered GST free.

This means sellers who are listing using the auction format and that are required to charge GST will need to set aside 10% of the final value for GST purposes. The 10% must not be added afterwards by the seller.

So fark that:

Hi,

I have just received an email detailing the changes to ebay's GST policy which demands that I include GST in my Buy It Now price. Approximately 50% of my custom is from overseas buyers, ie GST free purchases. In order to be fair to these buyers, I will have to discount the BIN price by 10% after they purchase an item. My question is this: how will ebay be ensuring that my final value fees are calculated on the lower GST free price rather than the BIN, GST inclusive price?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Snake.

(FFS: "after receiving feedback from members who felt confused or disappointed if a seller later charged an additional amount in respect of GST." Yet again eBay comes down on the side of morons who cannot understand a simple tax policy. So I get screwed over because they cannot read and understand. They sh*t me.)

This is the sort of cr*p which makes me want to p*ss off to Canada.

Snake:

Hi,

Thanks for your prompt payment. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery,

Regards,

Snake


THIRTEEN days later, I sh*t you not:

Pain in *ss:

It has been two weeks, and the item has not arrived. Please check or trace
to find out where it is. Thank you.

(Note the distinct lack of "Dear Snake" at the start of the email. Oh they sh*t sh*t sh*t sh*t me!)
