    Bad Trader

    Hi,
    Can you give me your opinion. I purchased some memory for a member. I paid him via paypal then he said he would ship it the next day. Then he refund me the money and said that the price was too low and he wanted more. Is this appropriate and is he following the rules?
    I just want the members of the this forum to watch out for this person.

    Mods: I didn't know which forum to post this in so you are welcome to move it.

    Here is his email:
    erowe@mchsi.com

    His address is:

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    This is way inappropriate. Its inappropriate to agree to one price then raise it, it is even more inappropriate to accept payment and then refund it due to raising the price. PM one of the mods, specifically Tigsman and Tenax with the trader's name and info

    whoa whoa whoa.. he cant do that.. if he agreed on a price that you BOTH agreed on.. he shoulda sold it. Its his fault for not thinking about it.

    Re: Bad Trader

    Flaming hamster, I apologized to you profusely and was even willing to give you 5-10 bucks extra for your troubles to try and make good for my mistake. I wasnt raising the price on you either, I said that it would be greatly appreciated if you sent more money as I made a mistake on the pricing but that you didnt have to. I refunded the money to you promptly and was going to go further by giving you extra money but now you have smeared my name and all you get is what you gave me and nothing more. The mods will do what they may but i tried to make this deal gone bad as smooth as possible and flaminghamster did not want to go that route, he would rather smear me and make out to be a bad trader when all i did was make a mistake and had no bad intentions.

    You made no mistake according to your posts in your thread. Someone asked you specifically if the price was correct and you responded that it was correct.

    I do commend you for refunding the money. However this is a bad start to trading on the forum.

    Re: Bad Trader

    I understand it is a bad start and I will most likely not trade in the future. Im sorry that i screwed up and I assure you I had no bad intentions. If i had bad intentions i wouldve taken longer to refund the money or not refunded the money, and i certainly wouldnt offer more money back like i did. Ive done as much as i can do to try and make this better with no avail. Flaminghamster is just mad that he didnt get the killer deal on the ram which i understand, but i was looking on the wrong product and got the wrong price and had to unwind the deal. I know it was my stupidity for not double checking the product but im not going to screw myself over either. I would rather have this name smeared than to sell my ram that is worth more than 140 bucks.

    Eric,
    You never offered more money and you nevered emailed me!!!!! There are rules and regulations that must be followed. Imagine Ebay, selling forums, and even internet stores agree to a price then decides that the item was worth more. Would there be Ebay or trading forums with sellers such as yourself present? Your attitude and your actions are unacceptable because buying second hand is base on good faith and you have tarnish the trust. Eric, if you do not understand the definition of integrity then perhaps the following link can help you.

    Yes, I tried to offer him $190 for the Mushkins but he would not sell it because it was already sold for $125. That is a man with honor and integrity. I am not posting because I want your memory but I want to inform other members to becareful of you.
    Thanks and goodbye from the forum because we don't need people like you tarnishing the trading faith of the thousands of members present in this forum.

    You are a complete Liar hamster boy. I did email you and i did offer you money after i refunded you the 140 bucks. You need to check your mail or stop your lies. Quit being such an azz about this. I said i was sorry and tried to make good and all you want to do is make this anthill into a molehill.
