    stratus5000 (eBay) - Seller - BAD!

    stratus5000

    I'd be very wary of doing business with this guy, was trying to work out a deal with him on an Arc Audio 4050XXK he is selling on eBay. Asked him if he would take a deposit to hold it for me until I could transfer the rest of the funds to my PayPal account. Here is the breakdown:


    After back and forth emails discussing details, and deciding upon a price of $350.00+shpping here is what he had to say:

I will ship it to you for $20.00 hope your funds come in soon God bless, Steve

    After finding out he wants to raise the price, here was my response:

    Your loss I guess. Thanks anyway. I'll have to find another seller who knows what they are doing.
    His less-than-polite response to mine:

I told you I was fairly new to ebay. be careful the way you talk to people it could come back and haunt you. Get a back bone and don't use the web to talk **** and least be face to face coward.
    I just paid for my Iraggi alternator Friday via PayPal so I didnt have the full $400+ he was asking for, of course I have more than $100.00 in my PayPal account, but I was unwilling to send him a deposit of more thatn $75 since he was a new seller, and had no feedback on this forum. Thank God I didnt send him a single penny.

    He does business online under the alias "stratus5000".

    Although I did not purchase anything from him (thank the Lord I didn't) I'd highly reccommend against doing business with this character. Obviously he doesn't know how to handle himself. Resorting to threats is never a good business practice.

    Here is another email I sent to him:

I didn't say anything that wasn't true to you, and I was being honest as well. I can get the amp for $25.00 more, brand new in the box, with a warranty, and from a reputable seller with over 500 transactions on eBay. Why would I spend more, and take the risk buying from you? I made an offer, no one said you had to accept it. I was trying to work out a satisfactory solution. I have more than $100.00 in my PayPal account, I could make give you a $300.00 deposit if I wanted to, but since you are a new seller, why should I take the chance and give you more? I guess you wont be getting any of my money now.

    Good luck with your business online. I would suggest not responding to emails in the manner you just did, its not going to help your reputation at all.
    His response:

    Interestingly, I manage having a day job, and am an active seller on eBay and this forum. I dont see what is so difficult. I promise none of my buyers will ever have to deal with this poor example of behaviour as long as they are dealing with me.
