I don't think so. I get contacted all the time by people I have blocked, wondering why they can't place a bid in my auctions.

As a seller, you have to draw the line somewhere. If certain people on Ebay realized they could get stuff for free no matter what the tracking said, things would get ugly really quick.

As it is, there are definitely people out there who make sure the tracking checks out on all their packages, and will file a claim the second they receive something in the mail that the mailman forgot to scan when he dropped it off.

This guy Bobby is dealing with, definitely sounds like somebody inclined to do something like this if he could get away with it.

Agreed. If some people think they can get stuff for free, they will try to take advantage of the situation. I have seen it enough to realize, sad but true, that that is a fact. I wasn't raised that way, but money trumps all I guess.

If so, that would be while you're signed in at eBay. If you're looking while not signed in, you would see everything.

Not true, every once in a while I find something from a football seller that catches my eye, and he's blocked me. For the life of me, I can't ever remember dealing with him before, but I can't even send him a message asking why he blocked me. But, while logged in, I can certainly see his stuff.

From any user's feedback profile page, you can use the "contact member" option to contact a user, even one who has blocked your account. A blocked member is just not able to contact a seller via an item listing question.

I ALWAYS use signature confirmation for any items over 200.00. Some may even choose to use signature confirmation on items for less. I have even done it on 100.00 items if I am getting a bad vibe due to discussion, feedback, or what ever. This cost can be passed on to the buyer as long as you advertise it that way otherwise you may eat this cost yourself.

If you use Paypal shipping, there is a box you can check for signature confirmation and it adds the cost. Very simple and easy to do for own peace of mind.

I have no doubt that signature confirmation has saved me a ton of headaches and also saved me hundreds of dollars dealing with people I do not know who may have otherwise tried to take advantage of the situation.

That's a good idea if you get a bad vibe from somebody.

That said, I have still had people say they haven't received a package that was sent with signature confirmation. When I point out the USPS records say otherwise, they say there must be a mistake, it certainly wasn't their signature.

Then I tell them I would be happy to help them file a Mail Theft report with their local post office......and then........................................cricke ts.

I had a problem one time when I sent a Pete Rose rookie card via Signature Confirmation and the postal clerk handed it to the person without obtaining a signature. The tracking showed it in limbo, and NOT delivered. The tracking probably still shows it in limbo years later!! The buyer could have really screwed me over on that one if they wanted to. So I will add, if you are willing to put signature confirmation on the card, you best put insurance on it as well.
