If she didn't live clear across the country I would have been scared, it was THAT bad!

I'd still be scared that if she's travelling your way, she'll find a way to find you, kwim? And the internet crime guy needs to be reported for reals.

You can block him via your personal email I know. I'm not sure about eBay and such, though.

I would contact their customer service and provide the harassing messages. He should not be allowed to do that.

I don't do much on Ebay, but I have several times searched for things and seen ridiculous shipping charges. Like a $10 gift card, with a $25 shipping charge, or a pack of socks with a $15 shipping. How does that work if they are only supposed to charge actual shipping? If you bought something, could you force them to refund you the extra amount?

There is actually a seller rule about excessive shipping charges. You can report them whether or not you buy. Its a way they try to circumvent ebay fees/trick the buyer.

On another note... i bought some quilty items. The seller listed ups shipping $13 which i didnt notice (my fault) right away. But i paid it even though i knew usps was way cheaper. SHE SHIPPED USPS for $5. I tried contacting her to get money back and she never responded. Ebay refunded my whole shipping fees when i filed with them.

From what I understand it doesn't even sidestep fees anymore, because the fees are from overall price and shipping now. But I could be wrong.

She is STILL sending me nasty emails thought she's down to just 3 or 4 a year now. I've reported her to eBay and I get the "we take things very seriously" reply but that's it. I haven't reported her in the last year or so, maybe it's changed.
That is nuts!!!
