It surprises me that sellers who act like this maintain 100% feedback. Of course he escaped OK by giving you a refund, but if he keeps doing it with the description he has listed?




Mike,

he just explained me that he didn't know that the board wasn't ok...the refund twas fast and without problems. That is why I gave him a positive feedback.

But he got a positive feedback for the second auction too...maybe the same thing happened there...he send the board, it arrived non-working, refund and so on...

Could be just bad luck...
But anyway...I would keep clear of this auction too...

All the best

Many thanks for explaining that. I have been looking for the right Munchen board for some time. To put the Resurrection in. In fact I was poised to bid on the auction you won until your name appeared. 

Then when the Munchen came up again I was interested until I realised it was a rerun of the previous auction and wondered what had happened. I was too polite to ask. Anyway I kept clear of the auction.

It surprises me that sellers who act like this maintain 100% feedback. Of course he escaped OK by giving you a refund, but if he keeps doing it with the description he has listed?

Hi All,

several months ago I bought a Munich board at ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=40855&item=5215847975

It arrived at my home and did not work. I send it back to the seller, and got my money back. No problem there.

Some weeks later I got an email from a guy who bought this one:

http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=40855&item=5233703048

After having won the auction, he saw that I already bought the Munich board several weeks ago...he was worried about his purchase now. I explained him the facts...maybe the seller did repair the board after the first auction.

But now this one:

Hmmmm.
