Your apology is accepted.
Yes, I do believe that we still have a host of shady sellers here who have no morals or scruples about lying and cheating and the ‘check is in the mail’ sort of thing and in general you can pick most of them out by seeing their feedback. There are also a host of shady buyers who have no morals or scruples about lying and cheating to pocket some extra money.
Then we have the PO, UPS and Fedex that has some drivers that have no morals or scruples and I can see that by noting when and where my packages show up. I ship only with the PO as it is a trip into town to reach the UPS store which is part of a bike shop and I have no idea where a Fedex place would be. I know I only have trouble with substitute PO drivers, including once finding a package that had supposedly been delivered on Sunday but didn’t show up until Tuesday and left in a pouring rain and I had been out and passed the area it was left in several times the day before - and it was not there. It wasn’t delivered on Sunday. The driver lied. I have a great PO and I think it helps. Some sellers from the sounds of things, their PO employees hate them for some reason. Who knows what they are doing in the back room when getting mail ready to take to the main sorting center.
Most of the problems with INR comes about by people that are lying and cheating. Other than knowing you yourself as a seller have morals and isn’t lying to your customer, then you know that the breakdown happened further along the line. And of course somethings get messed up by accident, and most of those things we can’t fix.
In the example of my order taking a month to show up, when I saw that my FB disappeared, I took screen shots of the feedback and then came back an hour or so later and took another screen shot showing that the negatives had disappeared. I send them in to Amazon. Every single response back to me was those “I understand your problem is this” where they go on to prove that they have no clue. Eventually I pushed it up the ladder and sent a very detailed report to Jeff. Never heard back. The guy has not changed his ways. Only last I looked his FB was up to 99%. And he still had feedback stating items were lost in the mail, etc. I truly believe that an Amazon employee was helping make those FB disappear, or it was an Amazon account in disguise or he was an Amazon employee that was in a position to ‘fix’ his feedback. I don’t know but he makes all sellers look really bad.
