I can’t believe it has been over a week since I posted.
I’ve been meaning to get on here but you all know how it is…. life has other plans!!
I'm going to start off with something I usually never do but it is really weighing on my thoughts and mood.
Maybe I will feel better if I just get it out. So if you don't wont to read my grumbling please skip down a bit. ;)
I’m sorry but I just can’t comprehend dishonest people!!!
Seriously, it boggles my mind how someone can intentionally lie and cheat someone.
That is what has happened to me.
Let me start off with saying it is not the amount of money I was cheated but the fact that it was intentionally done by someone.
Here's the back story….
I've been selling some of my Hubby’s things on eBay.
I listed a D-Link for him.
Some man came in and BIN for $28.00.
I mailed it right out. The night he received it, he emailed me being ETREMELY RUDE. He said it didn't work and that he
wanted demanded a refund.
I knew it did work when I sent it out BUT I chose to give him the benefit of the doubt and I apologized and told him to return it for a full refund.
He proceed to email me again, still being RUDE and started saying someone had tried to load some type of hacker program onto and it had froze up and could not be fix. And then went into detail on how this could be done.
Well, needless to say MAJOR RED FLAGS went off for me because #1 Hubby and I wouldn't have a clue on how to hack anything.
Nor did we even understand what he was talking about. (But obviously this man understood how to do it.)
Once again, I remained polite. Stating I don't how this could be on the machine we sent him. But still offered to refund. I told him to just return it and all its accessories in the condition it was sent and when it arrived I would give him a full refund.
WELL, Yesterday I got the package and the item he sent back to me.
THIS IS WHAT I SOLD HIM and SENT TO HIM:
THIS IS WHAT HE RETURNED TO ME:
IT ISN’T EVEN THE SAME ITEM!!!!!
What he has done is….
He had one of these that didn't work.
He bought mine, then claimed it was broken and demanded a refund.
THEN returned me his old broken one and kept the one I sold him!!!
Can you say…. DISHONEST SCAMMER!!!
I'm sorry, it takes a lot to make me mad…. and I do mean A LOT but this man has done it.
I am furious!!
Yesterday he sent me an email stating he noticed from the DC# that the package had arrived and he wanted his refund NOW!
Can you believe this guy??
Well, I wrote him and stated I did receive his package but that he and I both KNOW it is NOT the item I sold him.
Plus I admit it, in this email I did let my anger show.
Oh heck… I’ll just show what I emailed him back.
Here is my email to him:
“Yes, I received a package today.
But WE BOTH KNOW it is NOT the item I sent you.
The cord is different and the CD is different.
Which leads me to believe that it is also NOT the same DLINK.
Here is what I believe, you obviously already had one of these and it did not work, so you purchased mine and then claimed it defective.
When you knew that was not true.
Then you proceeded to send me your broken one as a return.
I have attached photos of what you sent me.
As you can easily compare the photos to the one in the listing, they are NOT the same item.
The cord is completely different as well as the CD.
And why would you have a different CD and cord, and not an additional DLink. ???
You may choose to deny this but we both know that the item you returned to me is NOT the item I sent you.
I am going to refund your money for the item. You must really need it to go to great lengths to cheat someone.
I truly feel sorry for you.
I will not refund the shipping costs. You have cheated me out of enough money as it is.
I have received 2 emails from him today.
But to be honest, I'm just still to MAD to even read them.
To see who this dishonest eBayer is, just check out my closed auctions. It is the Buy It Now D-Link for $28.00.
As I stated before it isn't the amount of money.
Heck, if he wanted it so badly and couldn't afford it, he could've just emailed me and I would've gave the thing to him.
But to intentionally, CHEAT and LIE that is something I just cant handle.
I guess, I'm just a naive person. I think just because I would never treat someone a certain way…. then no one would.
This is a lesson I need to learn because people have shown me this isn't true too many times than I want to remember.
And just you wait and see this crook will leave me a negative.
I'm sorry but I HATE EBAY!!!
So tell me eBay…. How in the world is this FAIR!!
Okay, I do feel better now!~! :)
Now onto happy things. I have already gave this so-called man more attention and time than he deserves.
Now on to happy things!!!
First off, Guess what???
I was the lucky winner of Folkart From The Harbor giveaway!!
Look at this fabulous stencil I won!!
I cant wait to get this in and make some of these.
Maybe, I’ll include a finished one in my next giveaway!!
Thanks so very much Becca!!
Also this past week I got in some new goodies I had purchased from two very talented ladies we all know and luv!!!
First off, here is my new wonderful wax basket tea light I bought from Pam.
Sorry about the photos. They are pretty bad.
Sometimes I just can’t get a good shot! ;(
But this will give you an idea of where I put it.
Thanks Pam!! I love my little cupboard tea light!!
I also bought some amazing rag tag labels from Susie.
This is the 1st set of rag labels I have ever purchased.
And let me tell you…. I will be buying MORE!!
These are so awesome!! Pictures don't do them justice.
I have purchased Susie’s paper labels before and her work is simply the best!!
Now I must get busy making things to put these baby’s on!! :)
Thanks so much Susie!!
I also did some tweaking this past week in my kitchen.
Once again…. the photos aren't very good but they will have to do.
I have had the same counter display for years and was ready for a change.
Here is what I came up with…. and trust me it does look better in person!! ;)
See that bucket back there??
That is what started me tweakin’.
I purchased it at a local antique store. It is an old bucket with an old tin lid. It has been newly painted an aged red.
I absolutely feel in love with it.
And it was on sale!!! 25% off of $30 bucks!!
Heck, I would've happily paid the $30, even that was a great price. Then to get 25% off… well, that was just icing on the cake! :)
Okay, back to the photos….
I had to move my “Tammy’s Kitchen” plate on to the top of my cabinets.
WHEEZY!!! Broke it!
Yep, I wanted to kill him!! :)
But I restrained myself and just SCREAMED, No Bad Boy!! Get Down!!!
So now it is glued back together until I get another made! :(
Don’t worry, I didn't get rid of my yellow wood box.
I just moved it over to the top of my fireplace in the breakfast nook.
I have also done some tweaking in the dining room.
And a few new new goodies but I’ll save them for my next post.
I think I have already gotten a bit carried away in this one.
It has been a crazy week at work. I have been driving my bottom off lately!! Hehee!
In fact, so much it’s sore!! LOL!!
Hubby and I are planning on getting away sometime this week. Early birthday trip!
I’m not sure where we going or when, but I’ll be sure to post and let you know about it.
I don't care where we go as long as I can SHOP!
I NEED a shopping trip BAD!!
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me.
And for listening to me grumble!! :)
Until Next Time….
Take Care Everyone and Prim Filled Blessings to you ALL!!
