I recently bought something (some HDMI cables) from an eBay seller. Turns out the seller is something of a turd. First, he is drop shipping using Amazon (a no no, but there are lots of people who do that). Second, in my case, he apparently didn't ship anything at all, and just gave me a bogus tracking number. Whatever was shipped got delivered today, but to someone in another state. OK, so typical scam behavior. But now it gets better. I write to the seller to tell them that the item seems to have been delivered to the wrong state. They write back and tell me "oh, sorry, I gave you the wrong tracking number. Here's your tracking:" followed by a link to a sketchy website (tongpost-tracking.com) that was just created in China in January and seems to have been created just to provide bogus tracking. Of course, the new tracking number he gives me tracks to deliver to my place today. He suggest "oh, maybe it got delivered to your neighbor by mistake". I then look at his feedback (he has about 8000+ feedback). There are about 30-40 negative feedbacks in the past year, and they are all variations of "gave me a bogus tracking number, never shipped, had to get eBay involved to get my money back." A fake tracking site. That's a good one. The shocking thing (and, yeah, it's eBay so nothing should shock me anymore and neither does this--it's more grossly annoying) is that the stories are so consistent and eBay hasn't bothered to shut him down. Last week, it was the guy who claimed he shipped something to me. It never arrived. When I complained, he said he had had "two strokes" and that a friend had made a mistake and never shipped my order (but his friend seemed to have had no problem marking it as shipped).
