Why would you want to take ebay to court?  If you have bought something, you didn't buy it from ebay, you bought it from a somebody using ebay to sell their items.  Please give more information on why you believe you have been robbed and you might get some good and useful advice from the experienced ebay sellers and buyers on these boards.


 


Take a deep breath and give some details please :-D

Hmmm - have to say, most of the seller's negs have been for this item.  Alarm bells should have rung......

Why not just open an item not received dispute if you've not received your chainsaw?

Same way as any other business. However, you need to be sure that the fault lies with eBay;-)

It is the trading company that you need to take action against.  If you go to the Companies House website you can enter the company number into the search and you will see the current registered office address.  Take legal advice first.

With a substantial bank account maybe!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Buying or selling in ANY auction envronment is a gamble and Ebay is an auction so if you aren't willing to lose sometimes then why are you gambling?
As an aside If it's so good in the City why doesn't any one smile?

Even that may be of little help.


 


Ebay's services are most likely to be regarded as a 'mere conduit', they are only the transmission of information and as such cannot be held liable for any damages as a result of that transmission.


 


The only way they could be held liable is if it could be shown that they have actual knowledge or should be expected to know, of unlawful activity and fail to remove the offending information.

eBay is treated as an agent only if it does not provide any further service.

 

If it says it has a dispute resolution service and does not provide a service that can be described as such then eBay can be successfully sued in the courts.  In this case t would be prudent to name eBay for their lack of service as well as the seller for ripping you off.

 

The only problem is the address for service as I don't think eBay provide one.

I expect a solicitor would tell him, at the first paid appointment, and at the second or third that it isn't worth trying. Seems perfectly  fair to me, since I think he will find it hard to get clear details from his client.
