Accused eBay Bully Allegedly Terrorizes Online Users - Technology : "Some consumers are discovering that when they bid on eBay, they're opening a portal to problems.
Tina Schimke and her husband, Dwayne, began having trouble with eBay when they placed a bid on a bike from what looked to be a legitimate seller, San Diego television station KGTV reported.
'He had quite an ad on the site -- it had lots of bikes. I admit, I didn't completely read the ad,' Tina Schimke said.
When the Schimkes e-mailed back with a question about the shipping cost, the seller allegedly blasted them with a nasty e-mail.
'As soon as he got my e-mail, he was pounding the keyboard and venting,' Tina Schimke said.
The anger didn't stop there, she said.
The seller allegedly left her a message that said, 'Hey there, schmuck boy -- not answering the phone now?'
The alleged eBay bully was on a roll."
