I've sold a few phones this is the first time I've had any grief, tho
this is the first (and probably the last) I've sold since the feedback
rules changed.

I usually sell parts for 4x4's, seem to attract a better class of punter
:)

Yup.

Had this a while back with a camera grip. I was suspicious from the off
as he had paid twice the market value for it.

Was working perfectly when sent and buyer claimed that it was DOA. When
he returned it, it was quite obvious that it was a different item.

The returned item was heavily scratched and dead as a dodo.

I had lots of detailed pics, as I always do, and even had a pic of the
serial number.

Neither ebay nor paypal would accept that it was a different unit and
refunded the buyer and I got a neg.

The biggest lesson I learned from that was never sell to someone who
keeps their feedback private.

This is EBay and PayPal you're dealing with, not an organisation with any
sense of reason.

That's quite a good tip.

But can you block people with private feedback from bidding ?

Does anyone know if the time limit for leaving feedback is still three
months ?
