I bought a few items from this guy Ian http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/empire_of_col ... 7675.l2559
Unfortunately I first saw the warnings about him after I bought from him viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11508&p=155444&hilit=Ian+hamilton#p155444
One of the items I bought from him was a Max rebo band microphone, who the FUCK would mail such an item in a envelope ? They can easily break and I have seen a few of them break before. I also bought another item from him and if he have mailed them in a box it would only have costed him £1 more.
In the Feedback I wrote Great seller, but packing could be better and it was positive.
I got an angry mail back from him, here is a copy
So, there was nothing wrong with the items but you just thought you would leave negative comments because of something that may have happened? Any normal human being would just have noted it in a message or even requested beforehand that the items be sent in a box. Do not bother bidding on any of my items again.
I wrote back to him
I would like to ask for an apology from you regarding your last message or I will report you to eBay.
I only tried to be nice and other people should also be allowed to see the packing could be better, that was not negative only a comment that things could be better. You got a positive feedback with a comment that the packing could be better, there is nothing bad in that.
And it is not the buyers job to tell how a seller should pack his items a seller should always pack an item great.
So guys what would you have done ? Is it normal just to drop a microphone down in a envelope without any kind of protection around the microphone ? or is it just me who is to careful when I mail stuff to others ?
Sounds like I am not welcome to bid on his auctions again, not that I wanted to bid on his items after the warnings from you guys. But something inside me can't wait to see what will happen if I bid and win again
I also can't wait to see what Ebay would do about it, because I don't think it is correct of him just to say I may not bid on his stuff just because I told others in his feedback that he did not pack the stuff correct
I also wonder if he do the same to others that write things about him that he does not like ?
