My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: KS
I REALLY hope someone here will be willing to help me! In 1/2020, I sold a piece of construction equipment on ebay. It was CLEARLY noted in the listing that the machine is complete but engine needs and and does not run. It was listed as "pick up only". It was also CLEARLY written in my description that any buyer should contact me BEFORE bidding to discuss the machine, loading, etc. the buyer never contacted before buying but after purchase contacted me within days wanting to "come work on it and try to make it run". I informed that I am not covered for such liability and it just needs picked up. He said he would be coming within the next couple weeks and would let me know. This happened a couple times, but he never once made a plan to come get it.
As asked several times to be advised 'how' the machine was going to be loaded and transported. He never answered. This is a very heavy machine and I don't want shady, unsafe stuff going on to get it loaded. I also don't want my place torn up.
he contacted just days ago saying he could come get it within the next couple weeks and asked for a phone number. I gave him that and again advised that I just need to know how it will be removed. Then today I get a paypal dispute and apparently he filed a chargeback through his card company so paypal says they are "excluded from the situation"....
I talked with ebay and they indicate listings are removed from their system after 90 days so of course all I have now our message communications, which CLEARLY indicate he knows good and well he is to come get this machine.
Ebay was zero help, and gave me a physical address to their legal dept and claims "they don't have a phone number"....lol
To be honest, this deal smells very scammish to me. I have been storing the machine free for months, did everything I was to do, and even contact paypal after the transaction to ensure everything was legit and covered. I realize what is going to happen is the chargback will be approved, paypal will come after me.
I could REALLY use some help guys! Not insults or negativity. I have had plenty of that from all these people I paid to sell my equipment. I want to get in touch with the card company directly and communicate with them on this. The breached his own contract and will get to walk off scott free, and I get hosed on this!
