Fixr1984 Posted January 19, 2012 Report Share Posted January 19, 2012 I've recently sold something on Ebay and feel I'm getting screwed. Alright, I sold a pedal in December, guy paid right away and I shipped it the following day. USPS said he would recieve it in 3 days (saturday). 8 days later I get a message telling me that it wont work with a battery. I got it from a bandmate and it was always used with a battery and was working fine. I told him I used it with an AC adapter on my board and it was working. He then tells me that it dosn't sound right and wants his money back. He then files a case against me the following day with the message that he will drop the case once he sends the pedal back and gets a refund. Fast forward a week and a half to today, I get the pedal in the mail. Knowing that the pedal was working when I sold it I wanted to make sure that it wasn't just his broken one he was trying to pass off on me. Comparing the pedal to the pictures I took before the sale I can tell that it has for sure been opened up, the screws are all turned to different spots. The battery snap is damaged now, one on the prongs is bent over, not sure if I can bend it back. Now the pedal will not power up thru the AC jack. My buddy used this pedal for a few years and I tested everything out before it shipped, I can guarantee 100% this pedal worked when it left my house. Now for the advice part, I have a few options in the case, I can issue a refund, contact him again or I can escalate the case to ebay support. I dont feel a refund is in order but what should I do? Contact him about the issues or take it to Ebay and let them deal with this? I now have a broken pedal and dont want to be out the money also.
