eBay CEO Devin Wenig's Anti-Social Agenda Hits Home
I ran into a seller on eBay who had a card from a video arcade from a casino in Reno that had $20 in value on it that they were selling on eBay. I used the eBay message system to ask the seller if they happened to have one of the cards without any value since I was just interested in the card itself as a collectible.
The seller responded and said they did not have one currently but would see if they could get one for me.
A week or so later they contacted me again thru eBay messaging, saying they had been back to the casinos and were able to get me one of the cards. They asked me for my address and they were going to just mail me the card free. I responded and gave the seller my mailing address, again through the eBay messaging system.
A week later I got a package in the mail with the card along with a few other cards from other casinos in Reno along with a note.
Apparently the seller got in trouble with eBay for asking for my mailing address through the messaging system even though it wasn't even a sale! The seller never wanted anything in return and was just happy to help. Shame eBay had to spoil things.
