When considering whether to purchase a property from EBay, potential buyers should understand EBay's posiiton on property sales which is this; unlike its auctions for purses or comic book collectibles, its real estate auctions are not legally binding contracts. When bidding closes, sellers and buyers are expected to contact each other to exchange paperwork and take whatever actions are required by local laws. As its Help section says, "EBay Real Estate is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers and, as a result, has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the properties advertised." BBB is advising consumers who wish to purchase property, especially off the Internet, to at least consult, if not retain, an attorney. Consumers may also wish to file a complaint with the Ohio Department of Real Estate. Their complaint form can be viewed at the following webpage: http://www.com.ohio.gov/real/docs/real_COM_3688_RE_Complaint_Form.pdf

Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I bought property and Scott Burton took the money and never gave the land or a refund.
Desired Settlement: I want at least the amount I gave him ($2,000 plus the cost to wire $19) and I would like to be compensated for the time I spent without this money, for the troubles I have had to deal with, the fact that I expected to be investing in a piece of property with represented value at a much higher price which I depended upon, and for him to be punished for doing this to me and to all the other people.
BBB's Final Determination: Business failed to respond to the BBB to resolve or address the complaint issues.
