Thread Title: "You could have sent it back. We offered to take it back."
I really gets me when a seller advertises a "CADDY" and delivers a clunker, then says "You could have sent it back. We offered to take it back". I am not in the business to send stuff back. Let's get it right the first time. I received a shotgun from shamrockpawn that had a split in the forearm that had a poor excuse for a glue job on it. Then, when a customer tried to shoot the shotgun, it malfunctioned. I found a broken part in the shotgun. I tried to get shamrockpawn to at least pay half of the cost of the part. They wouldn't hear of it. They said "send the shotgun back". I had already bought a part and fixed the shotgun. It would have cost more to send it back than keep it. I had to cut my losses. I thought it was inconsiderate of shamrockpawn to take that stance. Had the shoe been on the other foot, I would have been happy to pay for the whole replacement part. After all, it was $12, not a lot to argue over.
Let's keep everybody happy and describe the merchandise fully. Thank you.
Am I correct that this happened in Nov. of 2007?....If you sold it as good after you received it sounds like you didn't inspect it any better than they did.
I am confused as to why you would not bring this to everyone's attention much sooner?!! 18 Months? I don't want to sound mean but this makes you look like the one in the wrong to me. So please pardon me if I am way off base here but it reads to me like you are trying to turn something quick to make a buck and then expecting someone else to cover any loss you may face!?
I don't pretend to know you or your business and don't want to offend anyone but reading what you wrote this is the impression I get. If I am the only one then any following responses may prove me a unique thinker.
I am new at this computer market place stuff but in all my years of buying and selling the old fashioned way I take full responsibility for every thing I sell no matter how, where or who I got it from.
If I could fix the problem for $12, It is cheaper than sending it back. I have had to spend more than that to fix a problem on a gun I bought on a face to face deal and just missed a problem. For $12 I would not complain.
This happens all the time....it is the main thing that bugs me about buying anything on line....
