Re: The Promised eBay Negative Feedback Post


Well, I for one am surprised that John has gotten even one negative feedback. I've been both purchasing magic and selling magic to John for over twenty years now, and I've been amazed at how accurate he is in all his dealings. I've joked with him many times about the great lengths he goes to point out any defect or shortcoming in the effects he sells.

Yes, I will pay more to John, because he has proven to me that I will get what I pay for. I don't have to hope that the seller is telling me the truth about a prop. I noticed that Tavita didn't disagree that her prop wasn't in the promised "wonderful," "great quality," "beauty,"
 "excellent" condition her add boasted. Apparently it is more important to her that she didn't make a huge profit then the fact that her add lied about a broken, poorly made prop. In addition, she didn't disagree with the poor wrapping John said she used to send such a "great piece".

It also seems very dishonorable to me, even after a less than optimal transaction, to leave bad feedback after the situation has been resolved and the purchaser has left good feedback.

Tavita, in trying to hurt John's reputation, you've told us a lot about yourself. To use your own argument, I wonder how many people you've threatened into leaving you good feedback, and then vindictively left bad feedback to punnish them.

Straighten up and treat others fairly, or you won't last long in this community.

LOL I really didn't feel the need to defend myself as dose john, but since the peanut gallery seems to be in favor of fantasy I'll do my best to correct the errors in these posts.

First off this whole situation is ridiculous. People get negative feedback on eBay all the time and for all sorts of reasons.

I left Negative feedback for john because he returned the item broken.

He lies about it's condition and how it was sent. If the box was crushed why did he accept delivery.

I might have had recourse with the postal service had he refused delivery.

Fact is it was well packed in bubble and peanuts Styrofoam.

As far as it being junk, well one mans junk is another mans treasure. This is the whole premises of eBay as the worlds largest garage sale.

I stand behind all I sell and that’s why he got a refund.

As far as negatives in my feedback lol none are from buyers the 2 are from sellers who ripped me off, so that's a mute point as well.

Lastly look at all the people who are writing in this thread to support john. It's nice to know that his emails reach so many people.

I'm not at all impressed with his ability to rally people to his side never having had business with me.

My only advice to those who would sing his praises, Be careful as I have seen john buy things on eBay one day for one price and sell them the following week for double or triple what he bought them for.

A less than honorable practice. That’s all for now.

Well, that's a surprise! I am quite sure many of his buyers are fully aware of that. That's what a business is all about. Besides, John always tends to bid low, so anyone who really wants an item can easily outbid him without having John sneak up on you at the last minute.

John 1, Tavita 0 (Final Score)


Tavita, you are quite a piece of work!

I have bought many things from John Mendoza over the years. He may be occasionally blunt but he is a straight shooter, and he does what he says.

The man has THOUSANDS of positive feedback votes. That does not come about by accident. People do business with him repeatedly. That does not come about by accident.

Let's look at you, Tavita. The way you present yourself comes across to me as mean spirited. Your manner cetainly does not support the conduct you claim.

The bottom line:

1. John is a reasonable guy. You sold John a piece of junk. Plain and simple. Using the quote, "one man's junk is another man's treasure" is ridiculous. It isn't a license to describe something in glowing terms, as if that will have a placebo effect on the unknowing recipient. Had you described your offering for what it was, John would not have bid on it. Nor, I am guessing, would anyone else!

2. John said you packaged it poorly and it arrived broken. I believe John. I don't believe you. John knows how to pack a box. Again, look at his feedback. Holding any buyer responsible for not returning something that arrived in a damaged state is inexcusable.

3. What John PAYS for something and what he SELLS it for are not relevant. In fact, I could care less of I pay John $500 for something he got for $10. I only care whether it is worth $500 to me.

On that note Tavita, I would like to request that if you ever find a Picasso at a garage sale and buy it for 50 cents...I will expect you to offer it to us for 50 cents. After all, making money on a transaction just "isn't right." Better start going around to all the stores at the mall as well, and be sure to let them all know that what they are doing "isn't right." After all, they are earning a profit, something it appears you take issue with, right?

I guess you are on ebay as a public service. But I'm not completely convinced the public needs (or wants) your service.

Re: The Promised eBay Negative Feedback Post


Hello,

I wanted to add my comments here. I have known John Mendoza for many years. I have found to be one of the most honest , reliable and fair people I know. He has related the entire story to me personally and I have no doub't of the facts that he has stated.

If you read the feedback comments he has received on Ebay his record speaks for itself. Regarding this Tavita person I noticed now that they have changed their sellers name...Gee Tavita what's that all about???

John you are a first class guy and I am proud to call you my friend. I think that everybody here will agree with me.

Best Regards

Re: The Promised eBay Negative Feedback Post


Tavita,

Who cares over $50?! Is all this 'fallout' and grief really worth it to you? None of this can possibly be worth such a small amount of money. Heck, I couldn't even imagine all of this being worth thousands of dollards, let alone $50.00! Isn't being happy and kind and friendly and giving someone a positive experience and making friends along the way much more appealing to you than being lousy, unreasonable, and ruining someone's long-standing, impeccable score?None of this can possibly be worth the huge amounts of grief and small amounts of money here.

I would think you'd want to put a stop to the magic community rallying against you and in favor of John and start the process of making this right. The longer you let this drag on, the longer you'll experience the 'fallout.' Who really cares if you were wrong or right? Why don't you start the process of retracting your negative feedback right away? Heck, as far as I understand, your negative feedback won't even be removed; however, John's score will reflect this change by jumping back up to 100% where it should be. If you do the 'right thing,' you might just be surprised by how forgiving people can be, but you first need to make this right; all you need to do is simply step up to the plate, sincerely apologize for your mistake, and reverse what should have never been done in the first place. You'll feel much better about yourself the minute you do just this, so why put this off any longer and prolong this disaster for you?

posticon Re: The Promised eBay Negative Feedback Post


I will never retract the feedback because it's the truth.

john will just have to grow up and be a man about it.

Truly there is no fall out I can't handle and that is what his extortion was all about.

I believe there are others who he managed to intimidate with this BS but I won't be intimidated by him or anybody else.

Facts are facts he returned the item broken and I gave him a refund. Nuff said.

Have a nice day.

PS I changed my user id to reflect my character usersupreme as in the best user ever. LOL

Re: The Promised eBay Negative Feedback Post


Tavita, you can make all the claims you want, but what you fail to understand is that John has been extrememly well known in this community for many many years. You have chosen to defame a person who, though he can be grumpy at times, is extremely honest. And the idea of him trying to intimidate anyone is laughable.

Yes, I know John can handle any negative remarks that are thrown at him. But it irks the rest of us who know him so well, to see one of the "good guys" getting slandered.

Please re-read UserNameAnonymous' post. He makes a lot of sense.

I promised not to respond to Tavita any further and will keep that promise, but I do want to take a minute to thank all the posts for the support and to let her know that I have "rallied" nothing; these posts have been unsolicited.

The only two things I will say are that, first, I think the fact that Ms. Cronin (formerly Tavita3, now Usersupreme,) called the members of this forum "the peanut gallery" is evidence to her true character no matter how much she claims otherwise.

And, secondly, the most accurate thing she has written in all this is the "LOL" which she followed her own stated reason for changing her user ID. It is truly laughable.
