I am soo utterly pissed off at eBay that I'm going to attempt a class action lawsuit against them.

    Instead of being a sentence in a written contract most people don't read, it would have been a line of computer code in a smart contract that most people don't read (or can't read) either.

    Except the buyer and eBay didn't agree that you fulfilled the contract. Surely that confirmation would be needed to trigger the contract and get your phat GI Joe stacks released to you. If a 30 day shipping guarantee is part of that contract (however its determined and enforced), then you would not of met the condition.

    "One can argue my auction was delivery of the presale/preorder." is a tough argument to make with an automatically enforced smart contract.

    Your preorder doesn't ship until January 2022. That violates their pre-order policy. When you agree to their terms and services, you are allowing them to enforce their refund policy. That's not theft.

    But here is the trickier issue:

    You advertised as selling a Hasbro pre-order. Did you actually do that? Do you have a pre-order agreement with Hasbro that you actually transferred to him? Or is it still your pre-order and you just changed the shipping name and address to him? Does Hasbro even allow you to do this? Did you guarantee delivery by January 2022 and Hasbro does not? And does EBAY allow you to assign pre-orders (I couldn't find that info)?

    I have no idea what the answers are to any of those questions. I'm just listing off different angles that pop into my head. Obviously, the lawyers you talk to are the more important source of information.

    I honestly don't care about the $80. I just don't like being wronged when I feel I was in the right. I'm soo lazy with money and carefree that I deliberately don't return things because its too much of a hassle. If I bought something the wrong size, oh wellz. my fault. *Here friend you can have this.* I buy $500 festival tickets that I don't feel like going to anymore. "Hey friends, anyone want free tickets to EDC?"

    Your suffering from the same problem people do when they hit the lottery. Their ability to evaluate Risk goes to shit. I know someone who went through the same thing, and it helps to focus on finding a charity and being active in it. You need to see for yourself on a daily basis and receive direct feedback on how much money is worth to even just a few people. Find a family with a bunch of kids and help them get back on their feet. But you need someone to help you who has done this before with limited funds. I know the perfect charity and person to help you with this in my area.

    I think his apathy towards risk is the cause, not the effect, of him now being rich.

    it's a bicausal banking/crypto virtuous cycle

    be p rich -> so apathetic 2 risk -> get LINK rich lul -> care even less about risk -> get even more LINk rich -> wow ur p rich -> so apathetic, until ebay steals your $80 fortnite dolls fortune :redface:

    etc

    this is a very unimpeachable science

    I believe apathy towards risk can also be due to depression.

    I'm not a psychologist, but many people hung up on "getting rich" really just seem unhappy with their current lives and can't or won't see any other way out. For various reasons. Coping, escapism, denial.
