eBay Seller Nervous over Russian Dispute
By: Ina Steiner
On November 11, 2011, I sold an iPhone to some guy in Russia. I used a Priority Mail Small international Flat Rate Box and about 8 weeks later I get an eBay message saying he never got the phone. Much to my dismay, the tracking info didn't show up as delivered, but I know that International tracking is really bad and I recently lost a buyer protection case because of this.
I called the USPS and they said that all packages are sent out of the country and if they would have returned it, I would have gotten it within a week. So, a couple of weeks ago, I tell the buyer to call his post office to see if I'd package is there (just in case he wasn't home or something).
Today I this email:
I called to central post office, in Moscow. They says, that parcel with this tracking number didn't come to Russia, no information in system. Today I coming to local post office, and write statement to search for parcel.
You called USPS? What does they says? You write my adress on Russian or in English? Maybe in post office cant understand adrdess?
When you return me money or ship another item? I make statements to all government agencies as I know. And I will not stop. Next step is police department. I think that our remoteness is not a problem. Ebay support promise me, that they lock your account. I dont want problems, and dont want to create problems to you, but you must understand me. 400$ is big money to me, and i cant stop.
Now, I've asked some of cousins that sell on eBay what to do. One said that if 45 days have past, eBay won't do anything but the buyer says he'll call the cops and eBay will lock my account and he has all my info!
I don't know how, but I got an email a week ago saying that the buyer requested ALL my information; name, address, phone, email.
