In the world of monopoly control, the rules and any claim to a Guarantee, are variable.
With the neo-corporate world of engagement, it is the Buyer that is
victimized, and it is the Buyer that must do-this and do-that and then
settle for the refund of defective or wrong products received, even when at no fault of the Buyer.
As an example, a simple purchase of a 9v battery charger (which is a nominal $3 or $4 purchase at a store), ended up becoming a waste of life.
The lure of an ebay Guarantee had me convinced that spending $19.00+ would be to my advantage, when the ebay description stated the price included 2 chargers and 4 rechargeable batteries, I was sold.
However the ebay purchase from an ebay seller that placed within the item description the words, "For
U.S.", but rather sent European chargers, this ends up becoming a costly unplanned time-waster.
When a purchase goes bad, it's the seller's additional job to "file for a refund", possibly repackage after locating tape and proper packaging, travel time to the post office, etc.
But what happens in the case of the aforementioned purhcase when the seller does not even actually carry
chargers that work in the U.S.?
The ebay answer to this is simply to have IT'S seller refund the buyer's
card, which all sounds quite honest until you add up the variables:
n the following scenario, The fact that it was a pre-paid online credit
card that was purchased utilized to make the original purchase means that
there is a monthly fee of approximately $7 per month + the original
purchase of the card $3 so in effect this online purchase has cost a total
of about $29.00+ only to receive the wrongfully advertised prodcut.
Furthermore, since the original card was destroyed by the last place I
used the card (a quick-mart purchase utilized the last remaining pennies
from the card and the agent disposed of the card), so in effect I now
would have to wait for a replacement card which would invariably be at an
additional $7+ now rendering the refund to belittled even further (and the
purchase of the original item is now costing me $35+ !!!!

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.
