Avoid Sydney-based seller bargainsgalore2oo9. I bought a Versace belt off this guy on the weekend in a BIN auction, and paid on the spot. After I had paid, he changed the photo in the ad and claimed the sale was for an Armani belt, not a Versace. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....#ht_936wt_1167 I told him I expected him to send me the belt and he refused. He refunded my payment, but that was not the outcome I wanted. It is clear that he either placed this ad without having the goods in stock (in which case how did he get the photos?) or he had a fit of seller's remorse and felt he should get more money for a Versace belt.

Don't ever purchase from castingyou2. They have a listing for some loafers that they claimed were shell cordovan. The loafers they had for sale were some cheap glued-sole RLs. They were clearly not shell cordovan, and I emailed the to inform them. After a very rude response, the indicated that they were not going to investigate what I was saying. Essentially, they indicated that they didn't care if their customer got screwed. I would never buy from this seller, and I suggest you refrain as well.

If it wasn't so common that people commit to buying something and then back out or don't respond, situations like this probably wouldn't happen. Sorry you missed out on a deal. When I send over a msg w/ my paypal info as a seller, I will start including a "pay within an hour" clause.

+1, everyone has a life outside of SF and would rather not be sitting around waiting for PMs/payment... i just want to get paid and ship it off the same day or next day and forget about it

btw lots of australian sellers sell fakes sent from hk/china, i think a more likely explanation is that he ordered a bunch of fake versace belts, used the photo provided from his source, and then when he actually opened the package it was armani belts...

you lucked out!

I want to give a big shout-out to Queensland-based seller tedster13. I bought a vintage watch off Ted for about $250. It was running slow when I got it. Since he'd described it as "running strongly" I queried it. Ted said take it to a watchmaker for calibrating, and he'd pay the cost. I did that, and the watchmaker said the watch was past it, could never be repaired and hope I hadn't paid much for it. When I drew this to Ted's attention, he said send it back and he'd have it checked by his own jeweller. A short while later, he give me a full refund, including shipping. I cannot recommend this guy highly enough - a truly ethical person in a morass of shady dealers.

I gave him a negative over it so, if he was selling fakes, he got what he deserved.

I collect old watches and had great experience with:

goldensunjewelers
watchmania_il
decowatches

I bought some John Lobbs from cencoast and found them very pleasant to deal with.

I agreed to buy them. I was at work so I could not paypal immediately.


Skikar has been an active community member for a long time. Did you let shikar know that you were at work and wouldn't paypal for a couple of hours? Or did you agree to buy them and then go silent on him?

I was pretty annoyed at the breach of the deal and asked him to renege on the deal with the buyer as he had not sent the shoes and had contracted with me.

IMO, this is an unreasonable expectation. The deal is done at this point and getting someone else angry just complicates matters.

.

Pretty strong words to be tossing about over a pair of shoes. You think people were "duped"? I would reserve that word for when there is real loss of money or goods. I would agree, you were owed a quick word of apology as a common courtesy but IMO, you're overreacting. Its not like you lost money, just wait for the next B&S deal to come around.

Is there a list of the top 30 or so sellers in the B&S forums through members' experiences?

Has anyone had any experience with the number of Allen Edmond's label shoes which are "seconds" on Ebay?
post #581 of 659
I purchased a pair of Allen Edmonds "Westchester" shell cordovan loafers. They are new this year and I' saw a photo of them in a thread by ld111134 where he related and posted photos of this years new shoes (See Visit to Allen Edmonds) of a trip made by G-Man The shoes were posted as new at $250. or Best Offer. I knew they were seconds, by the price and the small mark AE puts on each second's sole in front of the heel. Nevertheless, I made a best offer of $199.00 and the seller, Dabondo1, took it. When I received the shoes, I could find no reason for calling them seconds and felt like I'd eaten the canary. What amazed me more was the time it took to ship the shoes to my house, South Carolina to Riverside California in a bit less than three days. I had seen a lot of feedback about Dabondo1's quick shipments and have no idea how he did this. The bad news of the story is that he also had a pair of 13Ds in the same shoe (not my size) for sale for the same money, but within a week, I see they were sold for $90.00 on a "best offer" sale. I guess it is human nature that causes people to feel bad after they have received a deal they would have taken any day of the week, . . only to see someone else get them for less. My mistake was thinking that if I went lower than $199.00 I would have offended him. So much for projecting your own ideas into a situation. In any event, it appears that Dabondo1 has a link to AE seconds and is moving some very good stuff for exceptionally good prices. I would highly recommend him.

I sent a pr of shoes from MI on 1/15 and the buyer got delivery in Japan on 1/19 - so 3 days from SC to CA: pretty normal.

If you bought a common size then you'd expect to pay more than a size that's near the top of the scale, I'd think.

He must have measured it at a different point. The way you measured it is obviously the standard way though.

antonyshop26 seems to be a fraud- one month after ordering Kiton shoes, no replies or shoes.
