post #28966 of 30428

I have just called and been told by ebay that the below feedback cannot be removed. Is this correct?

That is the classic opinion review that eBay typically won't remove.

If your going o leave a neg, thats the way to do it, no contact and short opinion. Not much you can do about it. I would reach out to the buyer and see if you can make amends with offering a return or finding out why they are unhappy with the item.

I bought a NWT Zegna tie that I believed to be a quindici tie based on the box that was in the pictures that the seller listed it with.  However, once I received it, I realized the tie was actually just a regular mainline tie.  I paid up a bit for this one and she didn't have it anywhere in her listing (her listing title literally was "tie") whether or not it was quindici or not.  She also doesn't accept returns.  

 

How would you guys proceed with this type of scenario?


You bought the tie under the assumption that it was a Quindici. The seller didn't mislead you. She didn't cleverly word the description in any deceptive manner. You took a gamble and lost. In my opinion, it would be a dick move to try to get her to accept the return.

Fair enough. I did reach out to her but I'll probably just let it go and chalk it up as a lesson.

Looking back, the tie isn't really a crazy enough print to be a quindici (at least the ones I've seen) so that should have been my red flag. oh well.

I see what the tricky bitch did now. I can fully understand why you were interested. Visually, it doesn't look anything like a quindici. I would still let it go.

 

By the way, if she mailed the box with the tie, you can probably get around $20 for the empty box.

Did she ship it as show in that box?

That is a good question as she listed it as NWT (in its original packaging).

She asked me prior to shipping if I wanted the box to which I replied yes.

Yeah I figured that's what I'd do. But yeah, shoulda been more careful.

It's a bit deceptive. It's like if she put a Z Zegna tie (without showing the labels) in a zegna couture box for the pics. You would assume it's a Zegna couture tie.

If you're not happy with the tie, return it. It also might discourage the seller from doing that in the future since it would effect her ratings.

At best, it's ignorance on the sellers part that she doesn't know the difference between regular and quindici ties. But that doesn't excuse creating a listing that will confuse potential buyers.

In the seller's defense, she might not know a Quindici from a Couture from a mainline. Her listing was about as bare bones as you can get. She probably saw Zegna on the tie and Zegna on the box and assumed they went together. For all we know, she may have acquired it that way. Who knows?

Yeah, I edited my response to account for that. That said, if it was an innocent mistake, the buyer could politely ask for some sort of compromise short of a return. It really depends on how much he likes the tie he got.
