    Default Stitched up on Ebay!!!!

    It had to happen, i have been bitten by ebay, and am not best happy!!!

    Basically on 21st August i bought a a bed on Ebay, got what appeared to be a very good deal from them, due for delivery on Friday 12th Spetember, then this morning, this email arrives....

    Dear Customer,

    Re: Ebay Pine On Line Order

    It is with regret to inform you that as of September 4th 2008, all assets
    owned by our company and outstanding customer orders have been seized by
    the High Court and have taken legal control of goods by

    Sherforce
    Shergroup House
    3 Freeport Office Village
    Century Drive
    Braintree
    Essex
    CM77 8YG

    Unfortunately this now renders the company insolvent and therefore unable
    to fulfill your order, or to continue trading. This has been caused due to
    current trading climate and the nature of our business. We have suffered
    over the last 6-months to a degree that has resulted in this position.

    It is with our deepest regret to inform you of this tragic news, but we feel
    obliged to inform you at the earliest convenience.

    We were a small family run business that traded successfully for 4 1/2 years
    . We are deeply saddened by this outcome and losing the customer base and
    reputation we worked so feverishly hard to build. Apart from the company
    being forced into an insolvent position, we have also lost our livelihood.

    We do hope and anticipate that most if not all orders should be covered by
    either the insurance of Paypal or your Credit Card Company, if paid by this
    means, as we would not want you to personally suffer as a result of the above
    . We accept that our apology may mean very little under the circumstances,
    but we are truly sorry that you are receiving this news.

    We will of course be taking legal advice in respect to our current position,
    and will inform you in due course of any further action to be taken.

    As we will no longer be on-line if you do wish to contact us regarding this
    matter please write to our registered office at:

    Pine On Line
    Unit 16/17 Yardley Business Park
    Luckyn Lane
    Basildon
    Essex
    SS14 3GL.


    Yours Faithfully

    Pine On Line.
    What do you do??

    I have opened a dispute with Paypal, thats about all i can do TBH...
    I this feeling i have been scammed though, something just doesnt seem right!

    Gutted for you M8,the bar stewards new the position they were in and kept trading,take it up with pay pal and e-bay.
    What about the Essex trading standards office ? might be worth a try or at least get them to have a look at this snide company

    A friendly member in Basildon could do a drive by for you to see if the actually exist. That in itself could answer lots of questions.

    I actually spoke t someone from the company on about the 27th August about delivery of it, and had an email from them confirming delivery dates..

    OK, so they could have staged them, but its a lot of work to go to isnt it?

    Well....

    It looks like this guy is an Ebay pro at ripping people off, its the 2nd or 3rd time he has registered a username, and they reckon in the region of £100k he has taken people for this time!!!!

    Oh well, happy days at ebay!!
    And what makes it worse, it looks like ebay knew he was doing it too!!
