Normally I am the quiet type but I gotta vent this.
My phone microphone died last week so I decided to buy a new one.
Some simple requirements (tri/quad band, skype, text messages and make/recieve calls).
Decided to buy off the 3 network (sorry sir your card is refused!!). Thought something wrong with the card so afterwards I bought an mp3 album - card worked fine.
Next stop ebay (decided on an unblocked Nokia 6300,107.50 english pounds) went through the motions and ebay crashes on the checkout.
Fine... off I go to Paypal, I go to pay the amount and before I finish I notice insurance is included, so i refresh the page.
I remove the insurance and pay (105 pounds).
Next stop hotmail and.......looks like I paid twice
Contact the seller and ask for the lower amount to be refunded.
Next day the seller comes back and says there is an amount owing on my account!!!!!
Huh!!!!! I paid twice. Looks like the seller upped the postage by 5 pounds therefore I owe him 2.50.
As far is ebay is concerned the full amount is paid, paypal shows 2 payments to this joker, yet the seller will not refund me the 105 pounds until the 2.50 is paid.
It seems beyond them to offset the 2.50 against the 105.
Its like dealing with the Taxation Authorities!!!!!
Some good news my application to move to Australia is in the final stages of approval (that was a lot smoother than dealing with sellers on ebay).
Once again a big "Thank You" to all at Truefire for their great customer service
I need a beer and a blues jam.
