If you are really worried and scared, I would even advise you to stop posting in this thread too.. Just a warning about this should be fine for our members.

First you need to spend time to face such guys & they will give up only, when you are equally upto them on all acts. If the threat is from a individual, he/she usually gives up, if the matter is seriously taken up with cops or by some other legal means. Being from business background, they would not easily give up & try to bring you down to their level.

Anyways, its good you have complained,lesse what the reply is otherwise am staying away from ebay as of now.
Look,actually I am/buyer side benefited,Because-
1.The person will not call me again,as he got positive reputation point.
2.A report against the seller has been made-wait to see what Ebay does
3.I have spotted the culprit in a well renowned forum-buyers will be helped,it is more vivid feedback than marking negetive feedback.

@Cyrus,no,dont take it in that way,an individual company,who sells something online, does a good business.Also,Modelart india has a shop at Ebay,they does a good business.But,yes,the risks of online buying outweighs benefits.
Do you remember,the fact,the previous name of Ebay was Bazee.com?And the owner was behind the bars for some reason?Ebay India GM=old Bazee.com owner as far as I know...so,how can you expect more?
I WILL NEVER BUY FROM EBAY-that goes naturally.Who wants to be threatened after buying a product?

You are absolutely right.

your id is already there if anybody went to the ebay website and read the reviews of kikan.

this is the review that kikan has left for you as a buyer -

A+@+#+$+%+&+A+@+#+$+%+&+A+@+#+$+%+&+A+@+#+$+%+&+A+ @+#+$+%+&+A++++++++

it looks like an abuse to me, even though you have reverted his review to positive.

most of the negative reviewers claim he has either not delivered or his stones are fake. I am sure in ebay (atleast in ebay India), both positive and negative reviews can be manipulated, so I can't trust either one. all the more reason not to trust any online purchase.

I too buy a lot of stuff from eBay, first time I am reading about an incident like this, will ensure that I too spread the word around so that other buyers at least are benefitted from your experience ! Also, do let us know what response eBay makes to your email to them.

Wouldn't it be funny if someone setup an ebay account and bid for everything he has for sale with no intention of paying for it. It would seriously pee him off. I know a few instances in the UK where people on forums have done exactly that (when sellers on ebay have treated customers badly).

I think that is easy in India than in UK.Because,my Ebay account in UK needed a confirmation code,that was sent to my mobile-only one can activate and use the account after having a mobile number,a credit card.
One can easily do it here from a cyber cafe`.

But,we are gentlemen,so,its better to avoid them than to go for a collision.We all have a social position,a sweet family and lots of professional duties everyday to be meet up.

Alas,when I was in the college's hostel and something would happen like this that time....
