    Ebay Issues

    I trade regularly and like the format, have had little in the way of problems with the exception of some soft oxford luggage I bought off a girl about 8 years ago, it was in "immaculate condition".. it certainly wasn't immaculate, lots of stains and signs of fairly heavy use, the killer was the matted Animal hair embedded in the fabric and underneath the inner liners, it was sent back and refunded in full.

    Today the Wurth Vice Grips advertised as "New" arrived, I paid £24.00 inclusive... Can't say I'm happy with the description versus item received.. although they are in good order, in my book New means just that New (unused)..the question is what is your interpretation of New ?... I feel duped to a degree.. had I know they were used I certainly wouldn't have paid £24.00 for them.

    How would you view this ?

    Re: Ebay Issues

    Yea, my thoughts exactly my proposal is thus..reply to my PMs no later than 5pm today, £10.00 refund and I'll keep them with Positive FB for him....if an impasse is reached I'll ask EB to step in..

    Think that's pretty reasonable.

    if a case does get opened,dont close until it's fully resolved,it's a royal pain if you do and it doesn't go as agreed.

    Agree with you. New is new and they defo aren’t. Piss taker in my view. Good shout with the comma and £10 refund offer.

    Those are misdescribed 'new' means unused, perhaps not in original packaging but unused.
    Those are 'used' maybe 'good condition' but not new.
    Discount sounds a good idea otherwise I'd return them.
