Default Re: maggied6.0ranger - Buyers beware

I have no allegiance to either party. In fact I've never heard of the buyer before this and only found out about the seller with his ads posted around Halloween. My thoughts...

For Sale ad up: 10/31/13
'SOLD' post on ad: 11/06/13
Buyer received parts: 11/9/13 or 11/11/13 (weekend...OP says 3 days)
This "buyer beware" thread: 11/13/13

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that adds up to be approx 4 days or heavens forbid 2 days to work out this problem prior to this threads existence.

Websites that deal with transactions for goods like eBay, has a 5 day waiting period after issues come up. If you open a dispute or a claim, the seller has 5 days to respond to the buyer. Paypal may have the same sort of process. I honestly believe this thread was popped up VERY prematurely. It's obviously better to work things out privately....and if weeks go by (NOT HOURS), definitely post a thread. I think the OP has jumped the gun on posting this thread.

It may boil down to lack of patience on the buyers side.


Parts condition complaint...

It is obvious in the for sale ad that you are purchasing used goods with the exception of the rotors and pads. You cannot expect brand new parts...or even usable parts if it's clear the parts are used. I see nothing in the ads description about any mounting bolts or any hardware...only brake line stuff. Many who choose to do this swap buy new hardware...including other hardware you've not brought up like the brackets to axle tube or securing the soft lines or the parking brake. Many who choose to do this swap buy new or rebuilt calipers for peace of mind and safety's sake. Your complaints on the calipers sound right in line with used calipers. Your complaints on the rotors could be from simple shelf life and being outside their plastic shipping/shelf bags...allowing contact to moisture.

Posting a copy/paste of this thread's lead post in another one of his for sale ads is a little immature. I don't see anyone leaving negative feedback on eBay when the seller wasn't given an acceptable amount of time to respond to the problem at hand. No patience and jumping to conclusions never works for anyone in any transaction.


I hope this problem gets resolved. Buyer and Seller, keep this thread updated. And thank you for letting me write this novel.

We should all stay out if we have no immediate knowledge of this deal

Hope everything works out amicably

Thanks for everyone's thoughts and opinions. And I do apologize for escalating the situation to an emotional level, its only $200 at the end of the day, but I felt ripped off. Paypal rep has advised me to close all means of communication except through them. I will keep everyone updated after the situation is resolved.

Default Re: maggied6.0ranger - Buyers beware

Well Ive decided especially after talking w/ many people about situation,that I dont think I should have to refund the buyers money. The ad clearly states what was for sale and that I never said anything about including all the necessary install hardware.

Am I wrong in thinkin this since my post clearly states whats included and that I stated what was there per the OP post for reference also? I posted a picture and anyone could look at the original post by the other person for more pics also. Feedback and not critisism would be ok to post to see what people think.

As for my opinion....only given the evidence.....I don't think a refund is in order. But....that's just going off what I've seen and what's been presented

Buyer beware is always a good thing to remember. I'm sure this situation could of had a good resolve if this thread wasn't started and calmer heads were used to deal with the situation. I'm by no means taking sided let's just put an end to this. Split the difference for shipping refund and resell or use the parts bought and learn from said misfortune.

I know that if Fed Ex damages a shipment, a claim can be filed as late as 10 - 14 days later. Since you were away when UPS dropped off the package, I'm sure that you can either call them or use their website to file a claim.

OP was not home when the shipment arrived, and I suggested to him also that it isn't too late to file a claim with UPS.

Well unfortunately he wants be more trouble then its worth. Ive told him to send parts back to me and once I receive it I will make sure everything is there and I will refund his money! Hes more trouble then its worth and I hope noone else deals w/ him so they dont have problems and complaints about parts either. I will be relisting the parts for sale w/ more then likely almost all new parts so the next person has no supposed complaints like this noob had! Like I said I told him send me parts back and IF everything is there as I sent it I will be giving refund. Hes just not worth the time or effort!!! Hope everyone learns from his overexagerated post. And he can kindly delete all his other posts in my for sale ads too like he said hes goin too!!

Have yet to hear back from the buyer in 5 days now on tracking info on returned parts. Waiting to get parts back so I can give refund. I have sent message thru Paypal that if he doesnt contact me about returning parts by Thurs night I will ask Paypal to close this claim. I will keep this updated if I ever hear back from him.

Obviously not resolved yet? Even if paypal is involved from day one, dont think it would be taking this long
