Good, Bad, or Neutral! What should I do?

I am an eBay fanatic. I love eBay! I have made some money selling on eBay as well as found some great bargains. I hear a few people have bad experiences, but I have always had nothing but good things to say about it. Until now!

Around Christmas I ordered a Wall-E dvd for Will. Well the women took my money and never sent the dvd. I sent her messages and nothing. So, finally I contacted eBay and opened a case against her. She never answered any of eBay's messages either. Because I used Pay Pal I was able to get my money back.

Since then I have bought a few other things with no problem. I have always wanted one of those oh so cute Kathy Van Zeeland purses. I finally found one that was cute and I could afford it. I won it and only had to pay $17.50 with s/h. It was used and had a few stains on the inside. No big deal. I don't care about pen marks on the inside and the outside looked great.

I got it in yesterday......It was very dirty. It had melted candy, gum, gum wrappers, grit, and TWO PILLS in it. The pills where way over the top!!!!

So, I sent her this message. (I copied and pasted it here.)

Dear tammy177

I got the purse today and like it, but it was VERY dirty. It not only had some stains on the inside, but also had melted candy that could be scraped off, gum, pieces of gum wrappers, and TWO PILLS!

I can clean most of the candy off, but the pills where a little over the top. They look like diet pills, but I'm not sure. I do have a 3 year old and found them before my child did.

I don't like to leave bad feed back unless I have to. This is why I am sending you a message first.

I don't know what to do now, but I do want to keep the purse now that I cleaned it.


This was her answering message...

Dear Joshlin

Hello,, I thought I cleaned the purse out, I'm sorry I missed the diet pills, I hope you enjoy it, and again I'm very very sorry.

Now what do I do. I can leave her bad feedback, but she can leave me bad feedback as a result. I didn't do anything wrong. Should I leave neutral feedback? Or should I just let it go and not leave any feedback at all? What should I do? What would you do? Help!!!

Picture of the pills and some of the other stuff I found in the purse.


  1. I would leave her bad feedback, that's just bad! I would have probably sent it back too and demanded a refund, but that's just me. Good Luck! Oh and I finally received my moster truck kit, it came last Thursday, right before the snow! :)

  2. I would too!! Not only is it bad -- it gross and dangerous!!

  3. I'm a visitor from MBC, and you probably don't care what I think, but her "apology" was insufficient and you should give her bad feedback. She should have offered a refund.
