a lot of members got themselves some bargains. I was just wondering if items were as described, or do you feel you were sold a lemon..I have dealt with many UK auction houses and its almost tantamount to legalized fraud.
All our consumer rights go out the window as soon as you agree to their terms..
I bought 11 items in my last auction...1/2 didnt work 1 described as mint had the battery cover missing and so wouldnt work
another described as mint in box and japanese was actually a taiwanese version in a repro box and the worst repaint job ever, with a fork by the looks of it..
so did anyone get caught up in the euphoria at the time and now feel they didnt get value for money, or B, have they seen a better / identical one on ebay going cheaper.
Yeah I think you took a verbal battering there and to be honest I think it was unfair, hopefully you will not be put off by this and continue to use the forum... and welcome by the way.
As for the descriptions go they have gotten slightly better at describing but are still way off as some have said a full detailed report, if I was spending big money I would go to the auction itself and view the items but for the cheaper stuff I usually just send an email and ask for further details.
