Angry Marblekg orchid vendor in Florida

Beware of this seller. He does not stand behind his plants. I bought a cattleya percivaliana ‘Summit ‘ and it finally bloomed. Obviously not a percivaliana. I contacted him and he refuses to do anything about it. I have been growing orchids for over 40 years and this is the most disreputable vendor I have ever dealt with. I urge you to avoid them.

On the bright side, he won't ever sell to you again after you you criticise him.

Yeah, very unfortunate and I agree, he's not someone that I would ever deal with. This forum and others have repeated warnings about this seller, but unfortunately, folks still get burned.

Ebay is opening up fraud charges against this seller. If mire people would notify eBay about being burned he would get banned from selling on eBay and it would save future customers from having to deal with him

I bough a C perci 'Summit' from him also, and it bloomed out to be a different plant entirely. I wrote a post about it here with pictures, maybe about a year ago. I bought another plant from him a year or so before that, and it was the wrong plant too. The first time I got the wrong plant from him, I didn't directly ask him to do anything to make it right, I just asked him if he might know what plant it actually was. He didn't offer to make it right, so the second time it happened, I didn't contact him about it. I just won't be buying anything else from him again.

You need to contact eBay there is an open investigation right now. Help get him banned so he stops doing this to people. He is disreputable.

Is there any way to submit a written complaint to Ebay (I have 4 points I want to raise)?

When I checked, it looks like you have to complain about a specific transaction, or call them.

I contacted them on the chat line. If you look on your transaction history page you can fin all your purchases for about five years. Give them whatever info you have and they can find the purchase. Even though it is past the timeline on their money back guarantee you can insist on a fraud investigation. Mine is in the fraud investigation department. This seller knows that by the time you bloom his plants and find out they are not what was advertised that the time limit will be up. He is laughing at all of us. If enough people notify eBay and insist on a fraud investigation he will be banned from selling.

It's unlikely eBay will do a fraud investigation and even if they do then they won't tell anyone except the seller and that will only be after the investigation is complete.

The only way he will be removed is if people don't just leave negative feedback but also open Item Not as Described (INAD) cases. If he doesn't respond or if Ebay needs to get involved then he will get a defect on his account. If there are enough defects, then he will be removed either temporarily or permanently.

Late Edit

I want to say I am not advocating for or against his removal, just explaining how EBay works in this regard.

Since you are both from Florida, why don't you drive over and confront him face to face about this? If you are still dissatisfied after the confrontation then bring a policeman with you and file a complaint not only to the municipal court but also the small business bureau. Ebay is definitely not the place to make Marblekg pay for his deceits.
