    Default Ebayer lmb.37

    Thinking of buying Bel Ami Vetiver from 1lmb.371 (3041) 98.2% positive feedbac

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bel-Ami-Vet...cAAOSwukVa~tIS

    All his negative feedback is slow or no delivery, same with neutral. Price is less than half of the offer at Fragrencenet, and less than the lowest full bottle which is about $71

    I know the saying, if it is too good to be true, but sometimes, people are liquidators. This could be a good deal, but thought I would get some feedback and maybe someone else is looking for this, there are 6 bottles

    Thoughts?

    There are actually many "never received" negatives. Why would you take the chance?

    I don't know that particular seller, but I usually don't buy from someone whose feedback is under 99%. It's just a rule of thumb, and there can be all kinds of reasons for lower ratings, not all of them legit - but still, 98.2% would be a warning flag to me, especially because the poor feedback specifically indicates slow or NO delivery. Slow would be acceptable, NO would not!

    Not received, that's easy to dispute
    The fake juice, or it is old and degraded, that is a bit tougher. That is the situation I am concerned about. Not receiving it, heck, I could wait an extra ten days after the end of the range of delivery and after asking for delivery confirmation number and do an ebay dispute.

    There's enough negative feedback within the past 30 days to make me wonder if something has happened with the seller. I think I'd rather pay more and not have to deal with any problems.

    Ah, now that I went back, 23 out of 126 feedbacks over the last month were neutral or negative. That is pause for concern and just the hassle of expecting it, not getting it and then disputing it, not worth it. Wow, I totally overlooked that, thank you

    Any feedback that is less than 99% for someone that has lots of feedback, I would not use.

    It is not a question of disputing the complaints, it is both the number of them and the seller not responding to the no delivery issues. Also, just like something that happened here on Basenotes, sometimes a previously good seller suddenly goes bad for no apparent reason, so early positive feedback causes perhaps a 98-99% rating which then causes many to still trust that person even if there are many bad recent ones.
