Re: Fleb*y Feedback, What do I Do?
Lefty Rob hit the nail on the head.
research the guy's feedback rating.
I was looking at iPod videos this morning and the guy had a + 10 feedback all positive. Then I looked atht the people leaving the feedback, all 0's with no feedback themselves and the auctions were all listed with ?????????????'s and no descriptions. Completely bogus listings with bogus comments. Think I'll be sending this person my money?
One of my earliest transactions was for a Roland Groovebox for around $300.00, going rate, seemed ok. The unit arrives, won't power up. I inspect it and find the problem, a bum power jack. The bum, speaking of sellers, wouldn't reply to my emails and canned his user ID. I was able to fix the problem rather easily, but he touted it as minty-new. I consider it a lesson learned and make more careful decisions. The bay is still a good place to find a deal, you just have to keep your eyes open, and if you don't trust the listing, you have the right to request more info, if they won't comply, move along.
I'd file against the guy for your time and money spent on repairing the Digitech, I'm sure it cost around 30-50 for the encoders from Digitech, and then say a couple hours of labour. I'd hit the guy up for a refund of $150.00 or tell him that you are filing a complaint against him for the full amount and he'll have to pay all of it back. F**K him, he knew what he was doing when he sold it to you.
