The Reason behind this page is to point out that Sellers are on thee own dealing with difficult/extorting buyers! Just as Buyers are on there own dealing with a bad seller! eBay considers there selves "Just a Venue" and is no real help when there are problems. Square Trade is a joke as well, They get you for 20.00 and if the mediation gets tough, they just close the case! eBay needs to support there Buyers/Sellers instead of just sticking there head in the sand!

In August 2003 I sold this 1973 Lincoln Mark IV to eBay User "LINC92" A Really Exceptional Car For Being 30 Years Old!

I Honestly thought he would be happy with such a Gorgeous Car but Oh NO!!

My old 73 Mark.. Now i drove this one for a month! It was all original with the exception of the deck lid was painted. Still had the factory stripes on it. This old car looked close to new! In fact looked better than most 10 year old cars! Ran so smooth you could put a glass of wine on the air cleaner without hardly a ripple. These buyers are impossible! Just the one i was 100% sure would be appreciated!


Ed , I got he car today around 1030 Am. Pretty nice but I have to say Im pretty disapointed in the discription . The entire car has been repainted at one point and not the best job. The passanger side door looks like somone took a rake to it , lots of nicks . I believe these should have been disclsoed in your discription. It Itles pretty rough probably needs carborator work. All in, in all I would have rated the care a 6 maybe 7 . A new paint job is going to cost a couple grand . Not sure what Im going to do with it at this point . Not sure what kind of feed back to leave either . Will have to look at you discription again and maybe have it apriased before judging to harshly. xxx

"PRETTY NICE"----------"Pretty disapointed"

It was 10:30 A.M and he forgot to take his Medication, But jumped on the PC to type total madness,
It's the only Explanation.

I tried to call him but the phone is disconnected. Told him in an email to just send it back, I will pay the shipping both ways!

I sold it too cheap anyway. And i stood by to make sure the driver loaded it properly, even took a last photo of it on the truck and sent it to the buyer letting him know it was on the way.

I go way out of my way to *attempt* to make my buyers happy. I probably only got 1/3 of the feedback i left my buyers. If they are pleased with there purchase you never hear anything from them, not once this year did i get an email telling me how pleased they were with there purchase!

Makes me want to rebuild some old junkers that look good in the photos! Send them nice cars and they never appreciate the cars and my service!

Hang in there DOC I saw this all the time at the used dealership i worked for back home. Back home population was 180,000 and a lot of farmers who got in trouble with their wives for comeing home with a new toy, and then came up with many excuses to return it. Same thing when i sold New and Used cars here in Denver. It sucked. The car looks great, if ya get it back i'll trade ya for my 75 4dr nova lol it needs paint interior and breaks lol maybe then the people won't complain lol.

DOC, I'd be "fit to be tied" at this point. Let us know what the follow up is, which will be "for XXX$ I will leave you a positive feedback".

Transport damage? Sounds like a tree or straps/chains got the side of it. Check the bill of lading p/u and delivery. I'm not one to blame a reputable transporter but this is clearly the case here, if in fact thruthful. I've hauled plenty of cars and I can tell you that just the bouncing around, especially if hauled inclined, it will shake up sediment in the tank and can cause debris to enter the fuel lines. Tell him to change the fuel filter[s] immediately then call the transporter but since he's apparently accepted delivery [hence releasing transport liabilty] he is liely SOL.

On a side note, I sold my wifes MB last weekend and today I got a phone call from the buyer. The conversation went like this:

"Hi, this is XXXXX, I bought your MB. When I took it in for an inspection it passed with flying colors but on the way home the A/C wasn't working. I took it back to the shop and they said there was no freon and had a major leak, $1100. I know you said you recently had it converted and I'd like to know if there was any warranty?"

I asked him to take in to the shop where I had the work done, I called and made the appointment. I called him back and told him I would meet him there at 2:00. Well, 5 minutes later and after the power to the compressor was plugged back in it again worked perfectly.

Coincidence, I think NOT! I called the guy he took it in to for inspection and gave him a piece of my mind even though he said he did nothing but I know better just by his character on the phone.

I got to shake the buyers hand again and also got a free dinner at his restaurant for my help.

It takes all kinds but the honest will prevail.

The car looked pretty darn good to me. This man is just one of the reasons I quit selling on eBay, I've dealt with several like him. No matter what you do to please the buyer, whether it be cars, antiques, or toilet paper, he's gonna find something to bitch about.

The man didn't forget to take his medication, he took too much.

A few posts while I was typing.

"I tried to call him but the phone is disconnected"

I assume you mean the eBay contact info? Let him neg you then get it removed based on that alone.

Take it back? There may be actual damage DOC and the transporter may be to blame. Even though you saw it loaded, you have no idea what can go on in transport.

Be careful, you may get back a real junker.

"Even though you saw it loaded, you have no idea what can go on in transport."

Let me clarify, I'm not doubting your knowledge rather I'm trying to tell you what kind of crap goes on even with the best transporters.

Car gets transferred to a brokers truck enroute. They take it for a joy ride and beat the hell out of it. I've seen truckers run through a tree line swiping the side of a trailer load full of late model Mercedes. I've seen it all including stalling giving the excuse of truck problems while in actiality the car is at a hack shop getting body repairs done due to transport damages. I've seen swapping of alloy wheels for rims/hubcaps and even swapping out new tires for worn out ones.

While this is NOT the norm, it happens on a daily basis. People want cheap transport and they get what they pay for.

BBB, thanks for the info. I have a signed bill of lading with only a small chip on the drivers door noted. The driver was really impressed with it and commented, He stole it for 5K. He also said it was the nicest old collector car he has transported in some time. Told me of a 76 Eldo Conv he brought down from NY some guy paid big money for a total rust bucket with holes in the floor!

I know what i sell especially that car! If it comes back damaged i will deduct the recon costs out of the refund check.

It is really not my business but honestly, I don’t understand why would this buyer lie about the car being repainted. I used to work in a used car business myself and I can spot a paint job anytime, no matter how good it is or how small it is – if you have a trained eye, you will see the signs right away. This buyer too makes an impression of a person who knows what he is talking about. Of course, most “regular” people would never know if the car was repainted, especially if it was disassembled for the paint job and dealers know that. I have a suggestion. Buyer: borrow a paint thickness-measuring tool somewhere, measure the car’s paint thickness while videotaping it and send the tape to the seller (if the car was repainted, the paint coat will be too thick; clear pictures of the paint might help too if you have a good camera). I think that this will work nicely for the seller too.

I think that the buyer’s e-mail message to the seller was very polite, courteous and straight to the point. I too believe that paint job should always be disclosed (especially here, on eBay when people sometimes buy cars without looking at them). I know that I would never buy a car without being able to inspect it myself.

Feedback is a whole different story altogether – neither buyer nor seller gets my sympathy vote here.

Happy buying and selling to everybody :)

DOC, I think the way to go is selling junk! No seriously, I recently listed/sold 2 "junk" [in my eyes] vehicles. One was a Dodge Shelby Charger that I listed as junk/parts and bidder gave me some troubles throughout the transaction. I finally got paid and the guy drove it home [to Ohio!], against my recommendation, then e-mails letting me know how appreciative he was and leaves me a positive praise feedback [his first feedback left out of 9 transactions/with 4 negs!]. The other was that damn Honda Magna motorcycle that I had a deadbeat on and re-listed. The buyer was from Arkansas which had me nervous buying a parts bike from that far away. He sent the $ overnight and picked it up this past Saturday, an 1800 mile round trip.

He e-mailed today:

"Hey just wanted to let you know that I made it home
> Sunday morning. Slept all day Sunday, worked all
> night on the carbs on it.
> I finally got her back together this afternoon. I
> boosted it from my car and viola. Sounds great.
> Got it running but will take some tlc to get it road
> ready.
> Just wanted to say thanks"

and left me positive praise feedback just minutes ago.

I don't like selling "junk" but it seems that's what people want and those types definately are the best customers [not to mention profitable, $800 on the pair].

Maybe I'll start buying what I consider "junk" and make myself and others happy?

Best of luck DOC and don't take those YOYO's to heart, we know better!

"offered new st of wheels, wouldn't take them threaten me if i left neg. feedback"

Yep, I paid for something as advertised [for a friend actually] and he got the wrong wheels for the wrong vehicle and definately not 1st quality. The seller admitted the mistake but insisted he pay to return them + the shipping [not cheap to ship a set of wheels!] on the correct ones and before he sent them to boot! Well, I/we did "threaten" him I guess after not getting thru to the idiot.

I got the charge reversed and he's no longer a seller, end of story.

Don't believe everything you read!

As for DOC, I don't doubt his word for a second!

"It is really not my business but honestly, I don’t understand why would this buyer lie about the car being repainted."

Because a friend said, "That can not be the original paint for 30 years old. It Must have been re-painted".

I am beginning to think the way to do business here is to buy crappy cars, use a cheap camera, take 6 crappy photos and use eBays Ipix feature to make them look even worse, Say they are perfect, get a negative and then give the buyer a retaliatory neg saying the car was perfect!

Think like eBay, Profit before customer satisfaction! The next one will not be that nice!!

I do! I've got a cheap digital camera and I use iPix. I don't however make it sound better, I make it sound worse. I also include photos via e-mail for nearly every serious inquiry, they show up better and larger via e-mail and it usually prompts them to ask for more.

I'd reply as "See you in court" and leave it at that. You have the photos and the bill of lading. You opened a "can of worms" suggesting to take it back. He apparently can't read nor understand terms of sale, typical gov't employee [sorry if I offend anyone but it's true in my opinion]. It's clear he's a fraud and after his touch ups it's NOT in the same condition it was in. Why would someone go through the trouble to wash/wax/touch up something they were unhappy with, you'd think they would want to retain the way in which it was rec'd. A total nut case in my opinion, all talk and no action. Maybe he'll take his medication and come back to reality. I'd report him to the gov't ISP as well for threats, they wont take it lightly.

Good Luck on this one DOC!

Exact quote - "You want it back you pay for it first just like I had to
do ."

Doesn't that sound like he's accepted delivery? You are not "buying" it back, you are/were attempting to offer a refund. Does Walmart or any retail business give you a refund first but let you bring the item back next week? It's only fair and REASONABLE to expect the merchandise returned in same condition.

It sounds like this one can go on and on... 'Sorry to hear about yer trouble.

My last Neg about 1 1/2 years ago was the same kind of person. We sent him 250.00 if i can recall it correctly for 2 hood support struts and headliner that had a 1 inch snag in it. Gave me a neg the same day he received the check. Bought a 50k mile Cougar for roughly 1/2 of book retail.

The guy with the Jag had some minor concerns and i feel the compensation paid was fair under the circumstance.

But MR XXXX here is clearly out to scam me. Let him give me a neg. I have the photos, auction description, and other professional automobile people that looked at the car as witnesses, one even drove it and offered me a profit that i declined. I will have my attorney file suit for whatever damages he feels is warranted.

I'd also remind him since he said he did the touch ups not a body shop, that since he has altered the car itself, and still wants you to take it back he first has to pay to have the paint fixed. many "touch ups" look no where near good, and lessen the value even more. Hmm guess it needs a new paint job now lol.

He has files a Square Trade complaint. In his complaint under the tab "what do you feel the seller should do to resolve this dispute" He is asking for that same 1000.00

It is plain to see what his angle is. If the car was as bad as he said he would return it.

Ed: I might have missed the answer to this question, because it's still pre-coffee time...BUT:

Did this guy have the car inspected prior to bidding - either personally, or by an inspection service???

If not -- CASE CLOSED.

Maybe it's time for sellers to include the following statement in their auctions:


For the life of me, I still cannot fathom buying a car sight unseen, even if a hundred questions are asked. With all the grief sellers go through - it might be worth weeding out the chaff and sticking with the wheat! JUst one (wo)man's opinion....!

Ed , I have decided to keep the car none of this is worth it . I will spend the money myself to have it repainted I can do most of the work myself, this is what you get when you bye an item like this without checking out first. Its a beautifully car and and with a little more TLC I will probably make money on it when I sell it . Did not mean for you to feel like I was trying to extort anything from anyone. Ive leaned my lesson . YOU DONT BY CARS OF E-BAY.

IF NOT-CASE CLOSED. Not nearly. What about when the vehicle is 500, 800 or more miles away and may not be the highest bidder?
Example: Earlier this year I bid on seven vehicles(all were 500 and more miles away) of which six of them I was not the highest bidder. If I would have had an inspection co. inspect all seven at $200, or $300, I would have paid $1,400.00 to $2,100.00 or more (if it would have been more then seven vehicles)just on inspections alone. Well, to me, this kind of $$$ is just too much.
I only had two options. Either, buy a car close to me, or trust the seller on the questions I asked.

Below is Mostly MY Original Description, And MY Photos taken at the now closed MCI Call Center in Pinellas Park Florida!

Vehicle Description

Needs Some Very Minor TLC To Be A 10! But Is A Solid 9 All Day Long! It Is All Original With The Exception Of The Deck Lid Has Been Painted. Original Top In Excellent Condition!  It Has Been Serviced By The Local Lincoln Dealer Since New! All The Belts, Hoses, Etc, Look To Be Excellent! Cooling System Is Mint With Fresh Antifreeze! And The Air Will Freeze You Out! I Am Confident You Could Fly Here And Drive This Baby Home With No Problems! I bought this car from a Florida Dealer . The Car is is fantastic condition for a 30 year old car. I have not seen one in this condition The engine has been detailed and the back seet looks like it has never been sat in. The drivers side seat shows some normal wear but has no holes or rips. Tires are in good shape with only about 40 % wear I would say. The two interior arm rest of a couple of cracks But I have been told you can find them from a parts store that carries them. The Clock even still works and keeps perfect time.

Vehicle Condition

This 1973 Lincoln Mark IV Was Just Traded On A New Cadillac,I was told by the Dealer I bought the car from. They Tell Me The Retiree Owner Was 91! And Had To Have One Last New Car! It Is A 1 Owner!! And In Unbelievable Condition! EVERYTHING Works Including The Clock And Radio Antenna! I Have Been Driving It For Close To 4 Months Now And What An Attention Getter It Is!

Below is an email i received after contacting the buyer in LINC92's Auction, And some photos he took of the car in Norway. 


Hi Doc
I recived the car friday and it is just such a baby we all want. It runs very nice, the ride is exelent and the condition of the car is to my liking.
I have however found rust under the vinylroof covering in the lower left corner of rearwindow. It has been there a while. That is a shame in such a nice car.
The color is so wrong here in Norway , so I really love it for this . It is so American in style.
This car is a keeper in my collection of cars. I will sell of my 74 Mark4 Golden Luxury Group.
`Do you think the old gentleman that owned the car is still around. I would love to have some photos and history from the years he had it.
Car will be displayed at an big indoor carshow here at the 17-18 of april, and I will make some display telling the story of the car.
What cars do you have for sale at the moment?
Enclosing some photos of the car taken this friday  in the Port of Drammen . 
Stay in touch
Best Regards
Jon Grasto
