Gave me negative feedback without giving me a chance to make ammends - bad enough but this is his last message to me.

(note about the other copy was because I had suggested sending him an another copy of the same book from my own collection)

So, well balanced individual or not - you decide

My feedback was left before this chap left his - and was true - paid quickly after waiting for a combined invoice, shame I can't change my f/b now. Needless to say I have reported him to ebay (Message was sent through their system :roll: ). Anyone had any experience on what, if anything, ebay are likely to do? After all these kind of comments don't leave much in the way of 'grey area', though perhaps I am being a bit oversensitive :D .


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Guess I can add myself to this list (not the first time).

This arrived today:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


After staring at Badmike's copy for a couple of weeks, I decided to go for the s/w one in this auction (just wanted a really nice 1st print S3; I already have a battered reading/playing 1st print copy).  The fucking thing arrived TAPED TO A PIECE OF CARDBOARD that necessitated an attempt to surgically remove it from the tape, to no avail.  There was just no way to save the shrink.  

Come to think of it, didn't the seller unload a bunch of s/w mods?  Anyone else here have a similar experience with them?


Let mirth prevail!

If the taping wasn't accidental, that's inexcusable. I'd email the seller and try to work out a partial refund.

I purchased two of the shrink modules from this seller's round of shrink auctions and they arrived yesterday wrapped with a piece of cardboard from a USPS Priority Box.  Essentially the section of cardboard was folded over and the three open sides were taped shut with packing tape.  As I removed the cardboard from the mailing envelope, I feared the worst but only on one side were the modules actually touching the tape.  I was able to cut the tape carefully on all three sides.  (Where the modules actually touched the tape, only one was touching so I was able to slice the cardboard open.)  Since the shrink was nice and tight, I was able to slowly pry the tape away.  Unfortunately, this is not the first seller that has used this process to send shrink.  8O

I would definitely contact the seller for a discount or a refund.  Most people outside of this forum lack the appreciation of shrink.  He probably thought he was doing the right thing but never considered the damage to the goods.

Good luck.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

I bought the shrinked Monster Cards from him.  They came in a small priority box - no problems.  Sorry to hear that he wasn't as careful with yours.  That sucks.

I bought a couple of those modules, too. (I wanted that early S3 print, though!) My two modules arrived without any problem and were packed quite well I recall. Sorry that yours came in like that. Hopefully the seller will offer some sort of partial refund to you.

Hi,

good grief! Last night I put some rare HeroQuest box sets on Ebay - and the number of people who've made me low, stupid offers for them!

Talk about sharks!  8O

Hi,

aww. touched a nerve, did I?   :lol:

For the record, I haven't asked ANY ebay (or other auction) seller if they "have a buy it now" or "would accept an offer" or anything similar for about 5 or 6 years now.

Just because YOU do it doesn't mean everyone else is tarred with the same stinky brush.  :jocolor:

Cheers,
Malc

no not at all. is still put up or shut up :) :)
did not say anything about bins but that you do nothing to tell ppl when selling far too cheap as if somehow them slitting own throats is ok when you have knowledge that is worth much much more. asking bin around full market price very very rarely when already have other purchases lined up from seller + looking to send together is hardly same as stealing candy from kids
your ongoing business offers to buy from others far too cheap ARE bins by any other name anyhow so is splitting hairs. +making as if st1 is worth very little if has any faults is sharp practice at best
given you thought i am cougar would advise not talking about things you do not know about + quit the usual behind scenes rumormongering circuit ^^

so what if you get some low offers on heroquest. talk about sharks! 8O makes as if you are whiter than white

pax ^^

Hi,

1) I have no idea what you are talking about - type English, or get a translator.

2) did you say I thought you were Cougar? Well, you're English is considerably worse than his.

Hi,

and now my item has reached £31 and some bloke has offered me £23 for it.

And someone else has asked what "shrinkwrap" is...  :D

Now I know why I don't usually bother to sell on Ebay!

Cheers,
Malc
