Terrible Seller: unglert10
I left a "WTB Rearsets" ad in my forum Signature for a few weeks.
Was subsequently contacted by unglert10 notifying me that he had a pair of Chinese aftermarket rearsets for sale. He sent me pictures and offered me a great deal so I quickly bit and decided to pay him. Immediately there was a problem, he said there was a hold on his paypal account and that he could not send or receive money.
So then I said..."Ok how should we proceed with this.." and he quickly offered a solution by giving me his brother's paypal account and telling me to pay that one. It seemed fishy but the paypal info did seem to indicate that it was actually his brother so I went ahead and sent payment on 07/24/12.
After that I did not hear from him at all. I was patient and waited a full week before messaging him on 07/31/12 asking what the deal was. He immediately responded and gave some excuse about shipping from a hotel and that it would be out immediately.
I continued to worry, but then finally I received the rearsets on 08/03/12.
GOOD right? So I message him telling him that I finally received them and thanked him for the business.
The very next day I get around to start installing them and I realize that there are pieces missing.
1. Brake side pedal tip
2. Shifter side pedal tip
3. Two black 'joint' pieces that fit into both ends of the shifter rod which allow for rotation (I didn't notice these pieces missing until later)
I immediately PM him about the brake and shifter pedal tips on 08/04/12.
Like last time...not response. I go to his username 'homepage' and see that he's actually been online since I messaged him, so he's been avoiding my PM.
I message him a second time with a little harsher tone in my message and he responds saying this:
"that's how i got em, i didn't touch anything or take anything away from them. i guess i never really took the time to inspect em. lookin back on the pics tho it seems like it could be an easy fix"
No sorry or anything, basically just a "screw you figure it out yourself".
At this point I'm just annoyed with the guy, but I'm still willing to figure it out on my end. I go on Ebay and find the same pair of rearsets for sale and contact them about trying to buy my missing pieces only to get the response "Sorry we only sell them as a set and do not sell individual pieces"
Screw China, of course I expected them to say this.
As for the pedal tips, these are a standard replacement part and I've already looked online to see that I can use replacement Woodcraft pedal tips with my rearsets.
But the two joint pieces are unique pieces that I won't be able to find anywhere, so I'm out of luck. I just spent $100 for some rearsets that won't let me brake or shift.
Tell me I'm in the wrong.
Should I dispute this on Paypal?
