I don’t recall if I mentioned it, but despite getting one of the Intel SR1450′s, I never did receive the second one I ordered. After spending a week or two trying to contact the seller (and getting no response), I filed a claim with Paypal about not receiving the item.
I checked my email today, and Paypal ruled in my favor, returning half of the payment made for the two cases ($35). I’m kind of sad I didn’t get both of them in the mail, but kind of relieved at the same time that the fiasco is finally concluded. I’m not really sure what the hell happened, haven’t heard from the seller since he sent me a mail to resolve the Fedex address confusion. Honestly, I don’t really care anymore, I’m just happy to have my money back without having to deal with a painful process.
Almost concerned me how little I had to do to get my money back.
Despite all the horror stories I’ve heard about Paypal (and I guess, in this case, I’m on the delivering end of such a story), I honestly don’t mind using them for all my transactions, as a buyer. I don’t think I’d even consider accepting Paypal as a seller – it really seems too easy to get screwed over by a malicious user, since the system seems like it’s designed to always favor the buyer. lawds.No comments
