This is a long post. Has anybody here ever dealt with this guy? He won my diaclone swoop auction on the 28th of August and just contacted me about the auction yesterday(5th of september), in which he stated he wanted it shipped fed ex other than ems shipping and then I didnt here from him again, so I asked him if he still wanted to do the deal or if he wanted to do a unpaid mutual agreement. He contacted me today with a nasty little email. well, heres how it went down. devilman200x: Oh my goodness!Have you accepted my $1000 offer?You have to excuse me a lot,it's just that when I did it I was in Luxor Egypt and it take me about an hour to do that!Connection was so damn slow!I just back from Egypt,please gimme 1 day or two and I'll recharge my Visa electron,that I use to Paypal as a Verified Member,don't worry at all!!!Just a question....I know that Paypal sometimes covers more than the usual 500 bucks in case something goes wrong with the seller..I guess $2000 even..but I don't know how,can you inform me about that,so I'll feel safe and comfotable to pay you ASAP? nemesis_maelstrom: I believe paypal will cover and ebay will cover everything. I have 100 percent feedback and my feedback is over 225 so paypal will cover everything, and I will insure it at full cost of 1000 when shipped ems. thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.-damon devilman2000x: This is the problem: Just declare that is a gift and that the value is around $5 (F I V E DOLLARS) or the italian customs are gonna charge me with stupid ancient taxes!AND they can even keep the pack for a check FOR MONTHS and opening the boxes with no care or knowledge of what they're handling.I'm not exagerating,just ask around if you don't believe me.And it means that if I'm not gonna see my item I have to open disputes,ask refunds,leave neg feeds,etc.And we wanna avoid all these trouble,right?So I don't think you can insure the ems or you should declare the real value of it.I dunno if Ebay covers $1000 and not sure about Paypal too if not specifically requested by the seller.So please get informed and Let me know ASAp,I'm prompt and willing to pay within the next 2 days nemesis_maelstrom: i know about customs, but didnt realize they were so bad in italy. if you want to be 100% safe, then I think would should go with ups, dhl or fed ex. they guarantee to deliver it and you get a tracking number. I know paypal covers you with buyer protection because like I said my + feedback is over 50 and ebay will also cover up to a certain limit. but I suggest going with ups, dhl, or fed ex. it will cost more to ship(alot more) but its guaranteed to get there. nemesis_maelstrom: hello? do you just want to go ups for an extra $60. so the total would be 1090. how does that sound? its the only way I know how to get it there with no problems at all. and yes you'd be covered by paypal and ebay if something(really far fetched happens).- today I wrote him back because I couldnt tell if he was serious about the auction or if he was pulling my leg. I've had this done numerous times because people didnt want to pay. I wasnt mad or upset I just wanted to know his intentions. plus he didnt email me back for the rest of the day, so I wrote this- nemesis_maelstrom: hey man, are we going to do this or should I relist it and send you a unpaid item agreement so i can get my fees back. or you can just send me 1090 and I'll send him ups. let me know asap. devilman2000x: Hey!Why are you acting like a prick?We are gentlemen here and I have the right to answer EVRYDAY;I wrote you yesterday,so I'm reading your reply RIGHT NOW.I don't like to be threaten,in real life or internet either.So please calm down and stick your arrogance where the sun doesn't beat,thank you sir.OK,so now that you know,I hope we can talk in a decent way,right?YES,I agree,send it via FEDEX,please.I say FEDEX because I know the italian boss of Fedex and he will track my pack securely without any risk of being lost.I'm gonna pay you immediately,once you have shipped,please SCAN the receipt and send it to (his email address)together with some text where you tell me the time of departure and the tracking number,PLEASE.I will give it to my fedex friend,so he can help me at his best.And remember next time,don't treat an italian like shit anymore or it could be a big deal.Trust me he paid via paypal the $1090 while he typed out his resonse. nemesis_maelstrom: just issued you a refund my friend. we are done here. I wasnt treating like shit, or an italian like shit. we will not do buisness anymore. I dont appreciate the way you have talked to me, and i dont need your money or the hassel. thats about as big of a deal as i gets for me and you. my last email was in no way meant to be taken the way you took it. I was merly asking if you wanted to do the deal since you only contacted me just yesterday and before that never heard from you after the auction was won. and an unpaid item mutual agreement just lets both partners go in their seperate ways without any problems or negatives. but apparently you thought I was treating you like shit and talking down to you, which was not the case. we will never do buisness again. TRUST ME nemesis_maelstrom: have refunded your payment of $1090 and sent you an unpaid item mutual agreement. sorry it had to be like this but I will not be talked to the way you talked to me. you had no reason to say the things you said in your message. I dont beleive I was in the wrong here at all. I just asked a question. It seemed like this guy was going to be more trouble than he was worth with his little outburst. so i refunded the money cause I dont need it or his bullshit. what do you guys think?
