    Arrow Can't make this up

    Here's the deal, bought a ps1 game off Half.com it was Armored core one...It was mint condition in a double 2 disc case for 18.00 shipped, after I order it started thinking way a minute wasn't the first Armored core a single disc? Look it up, it sure was and the 2 disc version is Armored core master of Arena which goes for brand new for 9.99 Anyway e-mail him 3 times in the first hour to make sure and to cancel this.Well, one hour later he ships it? last Friday night .He then Answers the next day after my 4th e-mail the next day saying he didn't get the other e-mails.But still assures me this is the first one that's in the picture.So, it comes today and yup you guess it! its the Armored core master of Arena. So, I e-mail him and he calls me a Liar! I sent him a Picture of the said game, He said that ain't the one he sent! I was trying to scam him? I said look it up, this guy has over 1000 positive feedback, no neg at all.I've even offer to keep the game for few dollars off, save shipping it back..He then goes all off on me that he sent me the right game ect..YOU are a LIAR!!!! Kind of funny, He now answers all my e-mails right away? Has this happen to you? Somebody sends you the wrong game and says your full of crap?

    I had a game sent to me from Ebay before. This was when sellers could rate buyers down. The booklet and insert were missing and the game was scratched all to hell. I messaged the person, who in turn called me a liar, that all his games were in mint condition and I was trying to screw him over. I have 100% feedback and I sometimes sell, although rarely, so I didn't want to get a negative feedback. It's bs how dishonest some people are.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    If Half.com is just like eBay, you should be able to force a return by filing an item not as described complaint.

    I've had similar experiences as a buyer. I've ALSO been on the other end of that where a person is claiming that I sent them an empty box, wrong game, etc. It's no fun on either end when someone else is lying. It really blows as a seller because you're pretty much at the mercy of Amazon/eBay/Paypal when it comes to a customer complaint, and we all know that they favor the buyer a lot more often than the seller (at least in my experience).

    This doesn't really belong in classic gaming.

    Yeah last I checked you could file a complaint with eBay nowadays (and IIRC, Half.com is an eBay service). As dude above said, they usually side with the buyer.

    So, does this mean you have a spare complete Armored Core: Master of Arena that you don't want?

    I only had this happen once with a lot of games. I sent one wrong game. I messaged him back with an apology, sent him the right game and he sent me back the game and we both left each other positive feedback. Sorry to hear about your problem.

    Smile PROTOTYPE do you ever just have a good day?

    Yes sometimes, but when it comes with buying games on-line or selling anything can be hell! This seller swore he sold me the first game in the series.He must of finally check it out, and refund me 4.00 but he didn't apologize or anything. I didn't have this game and will keep it, but you can buy this new off e-bay for 9.99 + 4.00 shipped if anybody interested? Just another day buying on-line..
