Claimed errors may be excuses to avoid admitting another error. Failing to ship the filters that were part of the sale is an intentional error. Admitting to an obvious error is fine if you are willing to right that error. Asking to subvert the fees is an error that works against a third party, the b...

Maybe the "I am not a thief" should now become a double "Indian giver" and get the "Gifted" filters back from the "Gifted" party that his "conscience" guided him to. He can then forward the filters to the party that paid for them in good faith. Let's see, send the filters to the people who used me ...

Nate's handling IMHO was far more thoughtful than the packaging job. Even triple boxing with no internal padding to take up clearance leaves room for problems. The stuff seems to have survived so be it. From what is shown here, the seller's own offer to sell shows that the filters are included in th...

Re: Is my choice not to use Paypal ever again.

Be very wary of any buyer wanting to use Paypal. Of course not all but some will take this opportunity to swap parts, board or even the entire radio and let me tell you again, you will end up with a broken radio and the buyer will get a refund. Sooner or later it will happen to you too. I am very h...

The burden of proof

The buyer cannot, need not prove the items were not shipped. The seller needs to prove that point. I think a big part of the problem many see here is the fact Steve for whatever reason cannot or will not produce proper documentation / proof of shipping. As the seller, this is his responsibility. If ...

I am always a bit skeptical of sellers complaining over their perception that eBAy did not protect them. They start to sound a lot like N3DG and a few of the other "Iam fine , the world cheated me" dealers. There are two sides to each story . A common response from scammer sellers is to claim that t...
