Its $4.99, not $0.99, that’s the ink cartridges, old eBay trick.

Actually, the ink cartridges are $1.99 - it's the spare nib that's $0.99!

Please explain; I've carefully read the vendor's description and fail to see how it is anything other than a legitimate offer. Also, I see that the vendor has a 100% rating.

Silly and naive me, I clicked onto "Buy Now"and instantly became aware of the scam!

Having been greatly annoyed by the vendor's (jiangkg2009) deceptive practice, I decided to file a report only to find that the page containing the report form would not download. Could this be how the vendor has maintained a 100% rating?

That would be my suggestion, "try to buy a pen for $0.99 then we talk about it”.

I've reported the vendor's deceptive price-listing to eBay. And now question for those who may have in the past filed similar reports: does eBay investigate and do you think that any action will be taken in this instance?

In my experience...

I have contacted eBay via phone to file complaints about deceptive listings.

These contacts result in the eBay rep talking a good story,

BUT NOTHING EVER HAPPENS with the vendor or the vendors' listings.

 

Pretty much the same results with third party listings on Amazon.
