Here's a copy/paste of the seller's product description:
- This item works great and is in it's original box. The photo above is the item you are bidding on. Not Happy? Send it back within 7 days for your money back ! (Except on SOLD AS IS Items i.e. Software, Media, Ink & Toner. Please see the RETURNS Section on this auction for more info.)
Here's what the seller left as feedback for me:
Negative feedback rating Condition/Terms are CLEARLY stated in every Auction Seller bargaindepot04 ( 69809Feedback score is 50,000 to 99,999) Mar-25-05 16:10 5176225922
Now, I could careless about the negative feedback, I'm more concern about the dishonesty of this seller. If the items weren't defective, why would I want to complain. Read the product description yourself and you'll see that the description clearly states "- This item works great and is in it's original box." Well, obviously something is wrong here, since I'm complaining now. The item shipped to me defective contrary to the seller's product description. Anyhow, I'm having this seller investigated for product listing violation. BTW: The product listed wasn't "Sold As Is." I clearly read that part as well before making the purchase. I'm also in the process of RMA the defective hubs as well. If you go and read the recent negative feedbacks left for this particular seller, you'll notice a trend of people complaining along the same lines of "Product arrived, but doesn't work or is defective." I thought that a positive feedback of 92% for a seller was acceptable. I guess I was mistaken.
And for those that think that I'm just being a bitch about it all, please keep whatever you have to say to yourselves! If you have nothing of what could be termed "sensible or intelligent" to say, please have the decency to refrain yourselves from posting. I want only to hear from people who can offer insights not criticism. This conversation was only intended as a discussion for help from people who are willing to help rather than criticize. Please don't read more into it than this!!! If there's nothing more that I can possibly do, then that's fine as well. I'll move on. That's all. Yes! I understand the world is full of criminals and other sorts of bad people. Sh*t happens! My conversations are within perspective. If you have a lot of money then you wouldn't care if an item was shipped to you defective, because you could generally just buy another one. Well, for us poorer folks, arguments and means of bargaining are at least some ways of getting things to go in our favors. That's not much to ask.
Again, thanks for any help. Later.
