I recently had a really blatant bait and switch situation. Brief scenario:
-Seller showed 1/6 item in old style in the photos. I message to confirm it’s the old style and not the new style. They explicitly say it’s the old.
-I purchase the item (at a premium because I think it’s the old style) and put a note on the purchase for them to check that it’s the old style again before shipping.
-Receive item in the post, and it’s the NEW style. Lol.
-Message seller who wants me to keep it at a ‘slight discount’ and won’t pay shipping to return.

I go to the eBay Concierge chat function with all the info. They were there without any wait. Within a couple hours they told seller to a) transfer me money to pay for shipping on the return or b) fully refund me without any return due to their deceptive business practices. Seller did a refund.

The Concierge thing rocks! Not sure how it counts against the seller though.

I’ve never done a negative review ever on eBay of a seller, and I buy almost everything online. First time for everything I suppose.

Interesting.

I'll need to look into this as well. Far better than what is happening to a fellow collector I know.
