Title: eBayer "locke-richa" - NOT RECOMMENDED
Post by: W4IJ on October 22, 2017, 01:30:04 PM
eBay seller "locke-richa" was unhappy with the selling price of his Henry 3KA, eBay item  #222678362761 and cancelled the sale.    He then relisted it with a higher reserve price.

Well that's one way to lose a customer, raise the price. Right Radio Shack?

No matter how high the price, always go higher. Right Radio Shack.

I have to see this amplifier.

How about that. He's in Macon, Georgia just sixteen miles north of Warner Robins.

Perhaps, I should pay him a visit. Naw! I don't need an amplifier. I have an EB-104 and
an EB-27A. CW doesn't require a lot of power anyway.

He claims it to a 3,600 watt amplifier.

Whaa!

Give him negative feedback on ebay if you can. The world needs to be warned.

He has a feedback thingy of 66%.

I too wonder what 'unable to test' means. The individual doesn't know how?
I shall avoid.

No 160 meters tonight. We're an inch and a half from full system calibration.

Wow! What a week.

I DID give him negative feedback.  eBay said they would give him a warning and watch his account.

His amplifier auction ended last night. Zero bids.

Another gentleman is offering an ALS-1300. Current bid at $670.00.

He says the power suppply doesn't work. Hmmm..Name a ham who doesn't
have a power supply or ten laying around the shack.

I cannot. I only have seven.

sounds like my recent experience with Wayne Skaggs, aka  hobowayon Escam.
Sold me an item he listed as parts/needs repair but works fine.  I get the caveat about returns.  However, when I sent the shipping instructions about packing it properly and added "item to be working fine upon receipt", cancelled the transaction and listed it as "buyer desired to cancel" which it untrue to start with.  Bottom line, he likely never tested the item, has no idea if it works, etc. so hides behind the parts/needs repair, but stating it works fine.  Either it works or it doesn't. 

Lying about why the transaction is cancelled (by the seller) doesn't mean anything to me other than it is untrue, and then to pull out of the contract because he is nervous the item is likely burned up/junk and doesn't want to get caught, is strictly his issue.

So you run into this on Escam also, not just the for sale postings/forums...
