Buying stuff on pages like eBay or Amazon, you rarely get to interact with the seller. But texabilly71 did. And it was a nightmare.
The man spotted a vintage jacket he really liked and decided to get it. It was a Carhartt. He was cool with waiting through some inconveniences the seller had to go through before shipping the item as well. But all good things come to an end, including patience.
When the seller started insisting on interacting with him, texabilly71 knew something was up. “He claimed he had been trying to call me and text me because he wanted to talk to me about the order. No such missed calls, voicemails or texts showed up on my phone. It was very odd. My phone was working fine,” he told Bored Panda. “I had calls and texts from other people at the same time. So that all seemed a little odd to me. I’m glad the rest of the exchange happened through eBay so that there was proof he was trying to extort me for more money.”
