Hi all,

What does one do if no invoice is shared and warranty is less than promised? I approached the seller and was told that they will not be extending it to meet promised date.

This happened a little while ago but I only found this thread now. I found the seller here but this deal was initiated directly.

An extension would leave me R2k+ out of pocket...

Thanks

Perhaps a separate sub-forum for feedback on Sellers in the classifieds section - so it's easy to find a particular seller because the thread heading will be the sellers name and people can freely discuss experiences both good and bad. Especially people like flashgear who sell a lot on an ongoing basis. Also warnings etc. For example, I bought a Dell laptop with a warranty - except I wasn't told the warranty wouldn't be honoured by Dell if it wasn't in my name and in order to get in in my name I needed to supply the name of the previous owner, which flashgear was unable to give me - his solution was for me to just 'chill'. Fortunately that one worked out but people need to know about these sorts of situations before making a purchase and since discussion on the item being sold is not allowed, I don't know any other way except a separate sub-forum...

+1 for Flashgear.

Bought a laptop- arrived day after shipping (to CPT)

Another +1 for Flashgear.

Bought a surface pro 4 last year sometime and the surface book performanced based last week. Smooth transaction process.:)

More votes for Flashgear. Bought 3 laptops from him over the last 2 months, all for collection, and had no issues. Paid EFT in advance, sent him POP, and then went to collect.

Bought a notebook, also paid EFT, sent POP and then went for collection.
No issues. He kept me updated on status, and all went smoothly.

And another +1 For FlashGear!

I bought the exact same from him over a year ago (Surface Pro 4) and then yesterday the surface book performance based i7 16GB version. Same awesome experience and insane fast delivery!

Would highly recommend him any day!

Oh and Ps: I got my invoice :D

Probably related to posting permissions: https://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/562335-PLEASE-READ-Rules-for-Classifieds-section

Before you can post an ad you must be a member for at least a month and have a minimum 30 posts (similar to some other parts of the forum).
Also:
No dealers may post here (we have a dealers section for that).

I bought 4 iPhones from @ZSAYED. A 4s, 2x 6, and a 7. I would not recommend anyone to buy from him.

He promised that all 4 phones would come with chargers. He did not deliver on this promise as he only sent me one charging cable and 2 adapters.

We know that MyBB rules dictate that once you accept an offer the deal stands. However, @ZSAYED wanted more money 2 or 3 days after we initially agreed on a price.




He promised that he'd send the chargers that were outstanding. I contacted him after a week to find out about the situation on the chargers. He accused me of being a liar, said I took him for a ride, and suggested that I send the phones back to him.




I agreed that I think it will be better if I send the phones back and get a refund. However he wanted to refund me R500 less of what I paid him.


I asked him to give me his surname so I can send the phones back to him but he's been ignoring me ever since.

Buy some cheap chargers and move on. I’d be loath to do any further business with him.

@ZSAYED if you agreed on a price then you agree on that priced. Don't try extort more money from someone just because you got a better offer. Just tell the buyer you got a better offer. If you agree to supply accessories then send them or give the buyer a refund. I definitely would never do business with you. And after this I doubt anyone else would.

@ben M and everybody’s else before you get involved he must be honest, he told me he is buying the phones for his family and the usually bs buyers give to get the best price and then he try’s selling the phones. He gave a story of buying phone for his sister and girlfriend etc he knew what he was getting and now he is crying for chargers and I told him I will send them soon as I buy them. I also told him he scored big time so he can buy chargers they cheap and I will refund him but he now puts a post up but forgets about his sweet lies that he sang. Be a man Ben
