Tired of playing ring around the rosie with phone calls that do nothing except have the other person on the line apease me with "I'm so sorry you are having this trouble". They don't give a rat's ass if I am having trouble or not. A customer can extort, lie and leave negative feedback that impacts not only your eBay status, but can hold up your Paypal funds! Even if you win a dispute where eBay sides with you, the low scores and negative feedback remain and count against your score. If there were a Paypal alternative, I'd take it in a heart beat since eBay's paws are ALL OVER paypal.
