Dark side of Ebay - michiganative

99% of my Ebay transactions have gone smoothly, but this is the case of another one that didnt. It always seems to be the ones over $100. This jack nut - michiganative -, sent me a computer that had a bad hard drive, but would power on (supposedly). Well, it didnt. The lights would flash on and turn right back off. After a slow week of emails he finally agrees to a refund. I ship it back and wait a few weeks for him to figure it out. I continuously email him asking for my refund to no avail. After having the computer some time he claims the case is cracked and it is worth less now because of the crack (not that it was worth anything cause it didnt work) and that he can only give a partial refund. It has been over 2 months now and I have not even got a partial refund. I got screwed by ebay and their very short time periods to file a claim because this guy dragged everything out so far. So now thanks to this guy and Ebay, I am out a couple hundred bucks and dont even have the broke computer to show for it.

As much as I like ebay, you have to be very careful who you buy from and be sure to know exactly what all you can do and when you can do it.
