That's crap. eBay definitely seems to have a higher proportion of idiots than it ought to.
I'm being messed around by a bloke asking me to give him positive feedback before I have the item as his Paypal account has been frozen, but he's already sent the item. Except it hasn't arrived yet. Which is unsurprising.
I have had this situation happen to me a few months ago.
They mess you about, but want you to give good feedback before they comply, so that their rating isn't damaged. The one I had would not send my goods until
I had given a good rating. I did this reluctantly and still had to wait an eternity to get my goods, which were not as advertised.
I have found that this usually happens with sites outside the UK.
I complained to Ebay, but they seem to drag their feet these days.
No matter how bad it gets... it could always be worse.
