Details:

Buyer bought a box of Lego from me. The ad stated that it was a full large flat rate priority box filled with various Lego pieces taken from a huge bin my son had.
When the buyer got the box, he claimed that a lot of the pieces were not Lego.....which in fact they all were. He also claimed that it was not exactly as the picture showed. I explained that shipping and settling of the box would have made the box and the photo quite different.
Even though my policy states no refunds, I offered a full refund once the box was returned to me.
The next email I got was VERY threatening. he said that if I didn't send him a refund, that he would leave me bad feedback. I did contact ebay and filed a complaint for feedback extortion. I am sure he will leave the bad feedback. Oh well. My over 1000 positives speak for themselves....I do not take kindly to threats and I do not give refunds without getting the item back.
But other sellers need to be warned. The buyer only has 39 feedback compared to my over 1050 and power seller status.

Everything this seller has stated is false. I bid on an 8 pound box of clean LEGO'S. I was shipped a box of lego's that completely different from the posted picture, they were dirty with some broken, and 3 pounds were not the lego brand or even lego's at all. I requested a partial refund for the 3 pounds of "stuff" and partial shipping or I would leave negative feedback. The seller refused and called me insane. I filed a complaint with ebay and ebay sided with me. Ebay is paying for the return shipping and I'm suppost to get a full refund but the story doesn't end there. Because of my complaint, I have been wrongly placed on this list, my home phone has been prank-called, I have been signed up for adult magazine subscriptions, and have received threatening emails. I will certainly place this seller on the bad-seller list and have already filed a report with the local police department. I would recommend staying clear of this seller unless you want the same thing to happen to you. Ebay told me that this seller has a history of this type of conduct which made their decision to side with me very easy. I would think that a reputable website would want to hear both sides of the story before posting a false report along with someone's personal information on their website.

LOL LOL
you truly are a psychotic aren't you? You live in a total fantasy world. Your piddly 39 feedback compared to the sellers over 1050++ and power seller status speaks for itself.
How did you expect a box of Lego to look exaclty like a picture after being shipped? The items in the box get strewn around and settle differently. DUH!
Any 5 yr old would realize this. You got EXACTLY what was described....a large flat rate priority box filled with various pieces of Lego. You got a value at much more than you paid.
Feedback extortion is against ebays TOS. Threatening
to leave bad feedback if a refund is not given IS feedback extortion.
You DEMANDED a refund or bad feedback would be left and when your refund was refused (without returning the item), you left the bad feedback.
You carried out feedback extortion and that was reported to ebay (amongst other things you were reported for)
If the seller had a history of this, ebay would surely suspend them but instead....they rewarded them with power seller status.
And...anyone who knows anything about ebay knows that they do not pay for return shipping. This is something the buyer has to absorb and they did not
side with you because the seller had already offered you a refund....AFTER they got the item back. Ebay sided with the SELLER.....not you, you dumbass. The seller is getting exactly what they wanted.....the item back for the refund.
Quoted from ebays TOS...
"If you want a full refund, you'll be asked to return the item to the seller. You'll be responsible for paying shipping to return the item."
You really need to read ebays terms better.
And do you have proof of any phone calls, or threatening emails or whatever else you claim they did? Without proof.....you have nothing except living in your little fantasy world.
I'd be very careful as to what you accuse them of without factual proof
What a pitiful, sad little life you must have making up such stories....
You are a scammer and tried to get something for free.

THE UNSCRUPULOUS SELLER WHO POSTED THIS BOGUS REPORT IS funwiththekids: Name: Ricky Melton City: Beverly State: MA Phone: (978) 968-5513 Watch out, funwiththekids has and will post bogus reports on you if you cross them. They even go so far as to fabricate other "witnesses" in the comments of their reports. Its laughable!

Check this seller's bogus report "huntin-n-fishin" where they pretend to be other people in the comments.


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

wow...you must lead a VERY VERY sad life that you cannot go on with your life and this is still bothering you. Check the original date....8 MONTHS AGO and he is still worrying about it and posting about it. DUH...SO SAD.....
I post NOTHING but the truth. You tried to rip me off and you cannot take the fact that I won. I do appreciate you taking the time separating all the crap out of that box....I was able to easily resell it....all clean and free from "non-Lego" items....and I made MORE than I sold it to you for so GREAT FOR ME!!!
You on the other hand, really need to get your facts straight. About all you have right is the name. we no longer even live in the state of MA and that is an old phone number from a throw away phone.
8 MONTHS AGO!!
Get on with your life...
what a LOSER....

and it is funny that you still have low feedback (less than 100) and I am now at almost 1500....and still a power seller.

again....Eric...
get on with your sad little life and grow some balls.

If Eric reads this comment I would like to encourage him to add info to the file for username "funwiththekids" on this site. Best Wishes.

Incidentally, if a buyer uses feedback extortion, their feedback is removed. It was not removed, proving you are lying.


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

Your IP address places the computer you're using in MA. A search takes about 3 seconds -- feel free to search for me too, you'll see I'm not this "Eric" person. So you're lying (or getting someone out of state to send messages for you - lol). I'm sorry to say your lying, bragging and rude manner are very telling of your personality to all those who read your comments. It seems you are a very pitiful individual and it's sad to see you get so much joy and excitement out of calling people names. I wish you good luck and I hope you get better.

ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!?!
You are STILL obsessing over this??? Something that happened 2 years ago....2 YEARS AGO!!!
......such a sad, miserable, lonely life you must lead. Since your remarks have had absolutely no effect whatsoever with the sales or the life of this seller, feel free to continue them since you obviously have nothing else to do with your sad, miserable little life.
and if you want to see ignorant....look in the mirror. I actually find this very amusing....and I am honored that you still think about me....all this time later (although I do believe stalking is against the law)


Posted over 6 years ago by 98.217.X.X Report as SPAM

1: You wrote this report a year after the transaction happened. I commented a year after you wrote the report. If that is "obsessing", you are obsessing by your own definition. 2: I am not Eric and that can be proven simply by looking up my IP address which I suggested multiple times. Your assumption and unwavering suspicion that I am someone from 2 years ago would seem to suggest it is you who is thinking of him. 3: Any rational person would find it is you who meets the definition of stalking. You invent crimes these people are supposed to have committed then post their personal info online in an attempt to humiliate them (which is slander). Multiple times you've pretended to be other commenters agreeing with yourself -- talk about amusing. I've never posted your address but you freely post other's addresses, call them names (bringing up profane subjects such as their genitaila), then go so far as to suggest strangers call the person's phone number you flaunt all over the internet. I however, expressed concern about your behavior and hope that you get well. Your suggestion that I am the one breaking the law is laughable.


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

Not sure what you trying to do but you really need to get a life. Amazing how you think you know so much about everything when in fact...you know NOTHING. If you are such a tough guy....why don't you post your name. LOL....can't so that because you are a sad, pathetic, ignorant low life. Besides...I DO know who you are and have given your name to the powers that be.....


Posted over 6 years ago by 98.217.X.X Report as SPAM

You are simultaneously asking for my name and telling me you know my name, so it's hard to take your threat seriously, funwiththekids. Sorry to disappoint you there. The vagueness of your threat -- the cliche "powers that be..." comment -- indicates you are making it up. If you actually gave my name (which you don't know) to an official entity you would have gladly specified the office you contacted. Can you write a paragraph without lying? .... I'm also amazed you haven't figured out that I am a different person from the one who put your name and phone number on this site. Those facts are available to you and I've told you how to figure it out about five times.


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

you can't even tell that you are a waste of breathing space. I could change my ISP too if I wanted to but I have NOTHING to hide. You have been reported and truly need to get a life. When are you going to get it through your little pea brain that whatever you are trying to do HAS NOT WORKED! My +++ feedback AND the money I make tells me that a little troll like you doesn't matter.....YOU don't matter...
What does make me happy Eric is that I know that I TRULY pissed you off LOL LOL


Posted over 6 years ago by 98.217.X.X Report as SPAM

Lets see scumbag Eric....I am a top rated power seller with over 1850 ++ feedback and you have a measly 78 feedback....NONE as a seller. That alone tells the truth....and PROVES that your stalking tirade has not affected me at all. Did you know slander is against the law? I can prove my statements are truthful...can you? NOPE!

Readers please note, eBay user funwiththekid's immaturity and unbecoming behavior is evidenced by their comments above (all comments which say "from 98.217.X.X"). Funwiththekids has also attempted to slander the buyers: huntin-n-fishin, brab421981, momof5girls2012 and copprincess (possibly more) on this site with bogus reports and rude comments.


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

And how do YOU know that they were bogus reports? I have the proof that they are 100% truthful. As I stated...I am a top rated power seller. Do you know what that means? ebay does not give out those classifications lightly. Your statements and the fact that you are keeping this up after several YEARS just proves you are a true psycho stalker who has no idea what you are talking about. Please go take your meds and get a life. What a sad little person you must be.....

If one has a pulse and can upgrade a tracking number (not send the item, just upgrade a number) in a business day on 90% of items, they are awarded Top-Rated seller status. ... . One of your "bad buyers" purchased a mere $3 item, another purchased a $5 item. You wrote this right in your own reports. You went on to call those people scammers and you required they pay out of pocket to return the items incorrectly described by you. And the facts in the feedback you left them differed from the "reports" you authored. That's why we know they are bogus. ... In the past 30 days, you've had these complaints: "item didn't work but seller refunded quickly, thank you." on Feb 8th, "fed up of contacting sellers and paying returns due wrong items, picture wrong" on Feb 7th, "GAME WAS SCRATCHED AND WORKS INTERMITTENTLY." on Feb 1st, "wow ..way too small....but i like it...thanks" on Jan 31st, "More worn than I expected" on Jan 20th. (So, you're never wrong right?) I haven't had that many complaints in my entire 9 years of selling on eBay.

hmmm......I made over $2000.00 clear....in my pocket last month alone selling those little kids clothes. Not too bad for something that is just a hobby that gives me money to play with when we go on vacation.....
just got back from 2 weeks in Hawaii.....where did YOU go?? Go back and crawl under your rock Eric. No one cares what you have to say. My life is very full and satisfying....unlike your sad little pathetic life. I laugh at you all the way to the bank....

PS...I also want to thank you for thinking so much of me that you have spent so much time looking through my 99.9% feedback. Must have taken you quite sometime to go through over 2000 of them. You really should spend more time with your family though. Pretty sad that you spend more time with me than you do them.....

I used to live on O'ahu (had to move there for work, not my idea of a vacation lol!). It was nice for a few years but I am enjoying San Francisco more. Kaua'i is of course gorgeous, although I haven't been there since I was a kid. I do miss it. Maui was too hot for me but was quiet and rural. A pleasant getaway from the bustle of Waikiki (and they have the best macadamia-coconut icecream!) Never been to the big island but got to meet many nice people from there (it seems everyone "immigrates" to Oahu). Of course anyone living on the islands has seen Lana'i, Moloka'i, etc. Haven't been to Ni'ihau yet but I'd love to go someday. ... My idea of a vacation is Europe. I went to Spain for two weeks this January. I highly recommend it. It'd put you out more than $2K though, just to give you a heads up. But it's so worth it. January is a great day to go but watch out for King's day! And by the way I'm not "Eric" lol.


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

Oops, January is a great *month* to go, please excuse my typo. ... And... I only had to look through the first 2 pages of your feedback to find those 5 complaints. Funwiththekids, you did not exceed 2K in sales, anyone can see that by looking at your feedback. Your sales are between $1 and $10 and the mode is around $3 - $5. Do you realize that means you'd have to have sold 300 - 500 items last month? Did you sell 20 items every day funwiththekids? I am impressed! Too bad people aren't leaving you positive feedback for it. I wonder why that is.


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

Oh how rude of me, how was your vacation and which island(s) did you visit? Find any great places to eat/see that you can share with us?


Posted over 6 years ago by 71.198.X.X Report as SPAM

So convenient that you omitted adding "Good Honest Seller"....."EXCELLENT SELLER..FAST SHIPPING..WILL DEFINITELY TELL FRIENDS TO SHOP HERE"..."A++++ Excellent transaction all the way around!"....."Items in perfect condition"....."Excellent Service"....."perfect seller Would recommend to anyone!!!! Wonderful items super quick!"....."Awesome seller!"......"As described, quick shipping, thank you!"......"In great condition, fast shipping! Thank you!"......"Great transaction, thank-you!"....."Smooth transaction! Great customer service! Thank you!"......"Great Ebayer!Quick shipping,exactly as described.thanks for a smooth transaction".

And that was just on ONE page. I didn't have to search through 2000 transactions.
Again....thanks for paying so much attention to me but very sad for your family...if you have one. if they were smart, they are long gone....which is probably why you have so much time to pay attention to me.

But then....you live in SF. Must be a gayboy. Awww.....did your boyfriend dump you??? Is that why you spend so much time searching through 87 pages of feedback???

And FYI....ebay is not the only place I sell. Come on....you must know all about it.....you seem to think you know everything about me....
and would you like to see my spread sheets to show my profits?? I...unlike you....tell the truth.

Grow up little gayboy. Your sad little life is really boring me. You used to be entertaining but now you are BORING

Funwiththekids, not one of your comments is without lies, misdirection, or rudeness ..... Well this is interesting -- I do have a boyfriend but I'm not gay -- let's see if you can figure that one out. Funwiththekids, it is sad to see that you are someone who so freely hates entire groups of people. I never asked about your profits or said you did poorly on eBay but you do a good job projecting your financial insecurities. My point in mentioning the five complaints which were only confined to the last 30 days (say it with me: "LAST... 30... DAYS") is to show that no one is 100% right all the time. You vehemently claim your buyer has to be wrong in every case of disagreement, then, to feel good about yourself, you have to slander them on this site. Are we to expect badbuyer reports due to the aforementioned five complaints? Funwiththekids, really, calling people names? Funwiththekids, belittling whole communities of people? A new low for you. Fantasizing about this buyer from years ago? I've commented on all your reports, NOT beginning with this one, but you've settled on assuming I'm THIS person? (wrong gender, wrong state, wrong buyer) How poorly thought-out. Making up "extravagant" vacations? (Waikiki is a vapid tourist trap for the quintessential uncultured haole going to the place they heard of on TV -- if you even went which I doubt).


Posted over 6 years ago by 75.6.X.X Report as SPAM

your jealousy is shining through ....even though you make absolutely no sense with your rantings.....but that doesn't surprise me. That is a normal thing for an idiot to do. You REALLY need to seek some psychological help....get on some medication. You REALLY need to get a life. and who said I went to Waikiki?? You do have a vivid imagination. Since you think you know everything about me.....did I enjoyed myself there? Where else have I been (or going)? You are so INSANE!


Posted over 6 years ago by 98.217.X.X Report as SPAM

Funwiththekids, feel free to reread my comment. I did not say you went to Waikiki. No one knows or asked where you go on vacation in the first place -- that was (very off-topic) information you volunteered. And to answer your question: "did I enjoyed myself there?", my guess is that you do not enjoy yourself anywhere -- on vacation or not -- based on your hateful vindictive attitude and readiness to put others down. ... "Jealousy is shining through"? (another very obvious misdirection attempt) What a random assumption to make. Funwiththekids, I don't even know of what we eBayers are supposed to be jealous. Your under-the-table used clothing business? Your pretend vacations? I stand bewildered at your delusion.


Posted over 6 years ago by 75.6.X.X Report as SPAM

Wow... this one really went sideways. Usually, it's the buyer who pitches a fit and looks like an idiot. This time, the seller came out looking like a clod.

The view from 2018 shows that Holyphonemanx2, or "that Eric guy," is still an eBay user, while funwiththekids had to move to a non-extradition nation that doesn't have eBay after having too much "funwiththekids."

P.S. I, too, am a top rated power seller. Maybe things have changed in the intervening years, but, as long as you don't actually rob your customers at gunpoint, they give that title to anyone doing a certain amount of volume.
