Documentation of a Poor Transaction and Bogus Feedback


Recommended Posts

Wanted to share with the community a recent transaction that went poorly with @Jamboy72.

He responded to my WTB about a Lab Broomstick, and we worked out a deal on a trade + cash.

We shipped putters (the Mezz arrived in great shape).  Since the headcover was damaged and identified prior to the transaction, he agreed to obtain and ship a new one separately.

I followed up asking for an update on the headcover on May 13 (since there may have been color options), May 16, May 22, June 3, June 5 with no response.

 

I opened a Paypal case on June 5, received no response, then escalated to a claim on June 11 asking for $65 to cover the cost of a new headcover.

 

Surprisingly Paypal denied the case on June 14 stating "This decision was made because we have found no evidence that the item was misrepresented."  I received no partial refund.

 

In 19 years of GolfWRX BST, I can't remember ever leaving negative feedback for a member, but I did that today:

He responded soon after with the following.  Also my first negative feedback received in 19 years of GolfWRX BST 😞.  I don't think I earned this one.

If a partial refund had been made, the deal would have been satisfactory.

Be careful out there in your dealings.  My perfect feedback is probably worth more than $65, so I should have considered retaliatory feedback as a possibility.

Sent the item(s) as described including the putter with a perfectly functional headcover- And ordered a replacement headcover to ship when it arrived - 

 

Said I would update when I had more info...before that could happen, a paypal claim was opened and escalated (found in my favor, which is interesting given how they overprotect consumers and bogus claims - 

 

Still happy to refund a reasonable amount for the headcover or ship a replacement if that resolves things for both parties and negates the negative feedback

First, I would like the negative feedback left for me removed since it is clearly a different story than your response here. 
 

Secondly, I’d like to be made whole on the transaction (either a headcover or $65).

 

Once those are completed, I will consider asking mods to modify the negative feedback I’ve left.

If there was no response to messages for almost a month then @zwhitworth’s negative feedback should be removed. What else could he do besides file dispute and leave negative feedback. Leave @Jamboy72’s feedback as it seems that he has been careless with his recent transactions lately and honestly it warranted the negative feedback on this and other transactions unless he can show that he had timely responses over the last month…just my thoughts. 
 

***On a side note crazy to see two long standing members come to this point…***

Your negative feedback should not be removed for @Jamboy72 at this point just because he completeld the deal finally. It should not take mod involvement to complete a transaction.

I want to clarify my details in the original post.  Rereading my details on the dates and follow ups, my summary and attempt to limit screenshots may have been misleading and did not capture two responses.  The queries on May 22, June 3, and June 5 received no response, but the queries on May 13 and May 16 did receive a response.  Out of fairness, these should have been included in my initial post, but do not change the outcome or experience:

Buyer escalated needlessly to PayPal claim which was denied - in spite of that, I'm still happy to make him hole provided we both remove negative feedback. Otherwise, there's no reason to keep discussing

You didn’t complete your end of the deal and didn’t respond for over two weeks. Who cares what some idiot at PayPal thinks about it? It’s clear you tried to ignore the OP to save a few bucks.

So you're resorting to blackmail to honour the deal?

Your feedback was earned, it needs to stay.

 

The feedback you left is retaliatory and should be removed. 

 

You need to send the money for the headcover or the actual headcover. 

 

It's that simple.

You said in your PM to the other party that you ordered a new headcover on May 16th.  If that is the case where is it?  Surely it would have been delivered by now?

I get that you feel justified here but when the entire community is trying to tell you that you are in the wrong, maybe it’s time to put pride aside and do the right thing. You are the sole person who can put an end to this.

All you had to do was communicate, it really isn't that hard.

PayPal changed the decision on the case this morning. So I have been made whole on the deal. 

Love to hear that. Such an unnecessary situation. It’s not hard to just do the right thing, shouldn’t need PayPal to do it but I’m glad you’re made whole. Hope the staff can remove the negative blemish for you.

That's even better cause he kept hanging his hat on the PayPal decision. Oops

PayPal change the decision because I called in and asked them to do so. So you can get off your high horse and move on about your day.

PayPal didn’t change the outcome, I did. I asked PayPal to send the refund even though they already ruled in my favor. Have a great day.

Please absolutely do not remove your negative feedback or change it to neutral.  It should remain negative.

Noble you asked to send the refund.  You are still 100% wrong.

I’d bet anything you don’t have an order confirmation prior to you posting this
