Buying chainsaws/parts on Ebarf has turned into a hemorrhoid
Bought a Cannon guide bar, with two Husky and one Dolmar chain for 117 with shipping. Did not really care about the chains but the bar alone with shipping is 120.
Box arrived, three chains no bar. Dude who sold it was not responding so I contacted Ebay, they said if he did not respond for x days they would take action.
He finally responded and by his attitude he does not believe the bar did not arrive but my buying onsite rank is high so he could not float that boat. (I have boughten four figure items on Ebay)
He offered to refund 70 bucks and I keep the chains, not new chains. that would mean I paid 47 bucks for three used chains.
He also offered to send me, some how, money to return the chains, and then he would give me a full refund. I did not want to deal with the chinese fire drill so I offered if he refunded 85 I would call the case closed.
He did not like that and turned it over to Ebay , whose method of determination, auto-method, is to check if the package was delivered which it obviously was so they said case closed no refund, which meant I paid 117 dollars for three chains.
I immediately got on the phone and surprisingly when I told the auto phome person to give me a real person it did.
I told her what bs was going on, she saw my first online message to him about no bar in the box, and she reopened the case saying if he did not take care of returning, him paying postage and refund by Nov. 20, they would send me post-paid return label and refund my money.
Yesterday I bought a Stihl PRO .026 for 300 dollars plus 50 bucks shipping. As the dude is only 70 miles from me I said I could pick it up .
He had a snit fit about that and said he could not stop the 50 bucks shipping charge, bs, FedEx does not charge till it is shipped, and he would charge me 25 bucks handling and give me 25 bucks when I picked it up, which meant due to price for gasoline going there I would save at most 5 bucks.
The A-- hole in his post said once he mails it, no matter what happens, he is no longer responsible without exceptions.
The guy is a total dick, so today he said where I could meet him, at his other job, but I told him I had already paid through Ebay just mail the da-- thing.
His, and the other dude who commented they worked hard to get a perfect feedback rating are going to get a truly negative one from me.
They earned it.
