DO NOT BUY FROM THIS EBAY USER!!!!!

I "bought" a damaged Washburn rs10v from this "seller" some 2 weeks ago, he replied to my first message before winning the auction, then never replied again except a notification of dispatch date, despite my numerous attempts to contact him via ebay messaging and his home phone ( which I got through ebay)
needless to say the guitar has not arrived!
Guys, do not make the mistake I made which was to fail to read his feedback before bidding, had I done so ( which I do 99% of the time) I would not have gone near this scumbag, 'cept with a nail adorned stick.
Now I have to wait another week for the resolution case to be escalated to Ebay Customer Support....
4 weeks before I see my cash again....


check his neg feedback, you wouldn't believe his postage methods.....

I had similar experience a while ago with an Ebayer selling the same guitar several times. I raised a dispute and got my money, but couldn't figure out the scam..... until it dawned on me.

It is basically a payday loan with no interest. They take your money and by the time Ebay sorts it all out, they have had the advantage of a short term loan with no interest to pay.

I did become abusive with the seller when I worked it out and headed all correspondence with "Dear Wongaboy"(for all non UK members, Wonga is a payday loan company primarily used by our substantial underclass)

Thats the name of my next band sorted. 'Wongaboy' - I'm thinking Oasis Covers.

UPDATE.

"User is no longer a registered seller" didn't see THAT coming!

I got my resolution case sorted and money refunded, weeks later.

funny thing is....I came home one day last week to find a familiar shaped parcel waiting for me.....talk about karma!
