    My first internet rip off
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I was high bidder on a auction for a single shot 22. The only thing that was supposed to be wrong with the gun was a missing rear sight ramp.

    Just got back from my FFL guy. The bolt is stripped on the gun making it inoperable. Also it is rusty. I sent the seller a message and am waiting to hear back from him.

    Is it customary for him to refund the selling price and shipping both ways or only shipping one way?


    This clown better do the right thing

    Hey WP, IMHO ... you shouldn't be out anything, you should be made whole. But be thankful if you get your money back

    Yep! But if he does the right thing, change the feedback to make folks aware of what he did, and then made right. LTS

    I have not left feedback yet. I am waiting on his reply. It is not a big $ amount only $40.00 for the rifle and then the shipping.

    If I do not get an email from him soon I am going to call. I got his phone number from GB.

    He has said he will refund the selling price and the initial shipping and wants me to send the gun back. This is fair and what I wanted.

    Should I have to pay for the shipping to send it back to him????


    At first he said tough s**t the gun was sold as is. I replied to him and quoted his description from the auction and told him if he was selling the gun in good faith he would back up the description of the gun.

    It was only $40.00 + $18.00 for shipping. Single shot .22.

    I suppose I will have to eat the shipping for sending it back.

    Pig, that seems fair to me. I always refund shipping too, if the item is not as described. Though I have never had one returned. Paying to ship it back is just part of doing business, BUT!.....since this was a lemon to start with, he could have also paid for return shipping......this would earn him a star in my book. Time will tell, what was his feedback to start with??

    The shipping was only $9.00. That is cheap enough and I will not complain about the shipping. But when you add that $9.00 to the $10.00 FFL fee i am out $19.00 and that aggravates me.

    He charged me $18 for the original shipping and it only cost him $9.00 as well.

    He is supposed to be sending all my money back. I hope he does.


    I learned a lesson on this one.

    what comes to mind is...

    "if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is"

    I can say my last 2 on-line buys, were much better than expected. Pistols, both received better than described

    the way it looks all of his feedbacks are positive......i would ask for shipping both ways,,,,,,,,,if not....i say we give him 19.00 worth a negative feedback.

    Still no money yet. I fired off am email and left him no doubt about my feelings. I will wait for his reply. I don't want to slam him on the feedback and ruin any chance I have for getting my money.

    Well I finally got my money back. They did not pay me for the shipping but it was only a $8.00 loss. Guess I will stay clear of these guys and their bad business practices in the future.

    Glad to hear it worked out for you, Piggie -

    Usually those things turn a definate shade of brown when dealing with someone who doesn't describe accurately and for lesser amount articles.
