Hope not. I'll be a very unhappy bunny if so..
Had a lovely result on ebay today. It was the first time I had reason to not complain exactly but point out that goods received were not quite so. Up until then everything I'd bought had been absolutely as expected.
I bought a cruise ECU described as brand new. It was but at some point in its existence the aluminium box had taken a real big impact and it was dented badly in two places - so badly so I couldn't risk trying it as I was fearful the dent may have gone so far as to short against the printed circuit. The damage did not occur through poor packing on the part of the seller.
Long story short, I contacted the seller last Thursday and told him most politely and factually the situation as I saw it. He instantly offered me my money back or a negotiation for a discount. I wanted the ECU so being very cheeky asked for 50% off. This was instantly agreed but he advised he could not do an immediate refund and promised it today. I was a little bit dubious but I needn’t have been for come 10AM there was a 50% refund sitting in my paypal account
That's fair restored my faith in human nature and in buying things on the 'bay.. No argument, no fuss, no bother. I gave him excellent feedback.
The irony of it all is that his username on ebay is Impact_Repair_Centre
