I was just telling someone that often people post with a complaint and leave out details to make themselves look better. This is one of those times.

If you called eBay and let them read the messages (assuming they were in the eBay system), tell them it was never paid for or even looked at prior to the negative feedback, someone reasonable might remove it. If it means anything to ya.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I think the only thing we can all agree on is that eBay is just awful now.

Huh? eBay had nothing to do with this.... OH YOU'RE RIGHT, BURN IN HELL EBAY!!!!

Quoted from Jdawg4422:

SEE thats it!! You can not do that on ebay!

You certainly "can"! And people do. Just because it's against some rule doesn't mean it can't happen.

Quoted from Code_Blue:

But if the buyer paid in cash then he is going against ebay rules. Even if you pick up in person you must still pay through ebay/paypal.

Totally incorrect. TOTALLY. Sellers have to offer PayPal *or* some type of credit card, but they are not banned against taking cash.

Quoted from vid1900:

He was not afraid of paying cash until he was told that he would have to buy the game without being allowed to turn it on.

Wait now, that's not right. The listing said "If picking up in person this item MUST be payed for in cash at pickup.....NO EXCEPTIONS!". The pushy buyer said he'd pay PayPal so he'd have protection, which to me as a seller would indicate if there was a light bulb out, he'd file a claim.

For me I'd not hand the cash over until I saw the game running and in great shape. As many have pointed out this transaction could have gone a lot differently, but it's not as simple as the seller demanding cash and refuses to let the buyer power on the game. It never got so far as they were in the same room. Buyer was pushy and demanding, literally threatening, and the seller so "bite me".
