This is not the first time
ebay has done this questionable "bait and bail" practice.
Ebay acknowledge the purchase, send receipt of the purchase funds,
decline the purchase, keep the money.
Since ebay took the money for a purchase of an item placed on an
ebay website, the money is no longer to the profit of the owner.
Since ebay is with knowledge of receipt of my money, ebay is
profiting unlawfully by not returning the money.
They ought to, of their own
accord, RETURN the money that has skillfully allowed only ebay
able to enjoy.
The following will show I've responded with due-diligence to the ebay

Purchase of an ebay item
Ebay follows up with the following email 2 days after the purhcase:
March 30, 2018
I should not be punished from my money due
to an ebay-derived cause.
If ebay is causing the hinderance of my enjoyment of my
property, since the money is in the care of ebay, it is ebay enjoying
my property which I did not authorize. I authorized money
for product only.

After numerous telephone communications attempts to convince ebay
to return the money back to me. It was decided to try another
I was now forced to begin documenting calls, attempted emails to
various agents and agencies, the creation of this website to document
the insidious harm of bait and bail control.

It was clear that I
manipulated to first resolve the loss with ebay as directed within the
email sent by ebay.
April 1, 2018
In accordance with the ebay directives and dictates expressed
to me as the efforts that must be pursued for the return of my money, I
followed ebay advice and conctacted their law enforcement.
problem that ebay has with their seller should not translate to
adopted problem and/or loss.
This might be a valid profit for ebay had I allowed weeks to progress,
however it was only two days later after ebay took my money and here I
am over a week chasing monopoly for my money return.
Since the powers of
ebay were so diligently willing to "cancel" the shipment of the item
which ebay took the money for, one might find it considerate of ebay to
return the money without forcing me to first jump through numerous
hoops to usher the return of my money.
is rejected by ebay as a form of communications, and since the ebay
operators in customer care penalize me for my native English language
with much wasted time over the phone, I was manipulated to create a
username and post on the ebay forum. One person responded by
requesting to know if I were the buyer or seller.
It is April 4, 2018
so we may not be seeing any other activity from the ebay forum.
As the below
included call logs show, I have spent some time on the phone with ebay
when the time could very well have been better spent productively in a
manner I would have preferred. However, after speaking with three
different ebay agents for a consumed amount of time each, it became
apparent that my having been born and raised in America and having the
English language as my only language is apparently a hindrance to the
expedient return of my money.
requested by the ebay telephone buffer agents to spell out my email
address, no less than
5 times in three calls (only one in three agents were able to get the
spelling as I individually spelled out each letter), and having
apparently failed to convey my email address to an agent that might
have a grasp of the only language I am proficient in, It became
apparent that I and the ebay employees were not able to communicate
fluidly, so I offered to simply email ebay for
expediency (which was refused by ebay as being permitted as an
remedy for the clear conveyance of the spelling of my email address).
My email address
5 times over the phone to someone that you can barely understand also,
spelling out each character only to hear something else repeated back
to you, is somewhat infuriatingly degrading)
Having a need to
NOT stay on the phone for extended periods due to the phone being
necessary for incoming business calls, I now make the request for
mediation in the hopeful expedient remedy and return of my money.
ebay took my money and cannot fulfill their website's requisites, the
least they should do is considerately RETURN the unearned profit.
appears to prey on the percent that either never follow up with their
credit card purchases, die, forget any knowledge of having made a
purchase from ebay, or any other number of variables that may
permit ebay an unwarranted profit.
