Question for other forum members - end thread... - Page 3

post #31 of 105
I agree - there should be a refund (or at least a partial refund so you can flip it and make some profit)...
If he knew that it was altered to a new size that's outright fraud...
Sounds like something that would happen on ebay!

I think the seller should give a refund.

I don't agree with you on the latter. I think we hold each other to higher standards than e-Bay. I would fully expect a seller to acknowledge that the suit was altered a full size, even if measurements galore were listed.

If only the seller would agree.

I think this is pretty shady, but what do I know? I only have 165 posts!

Would it help to know that I have an ebay rating of 450 positive feedback and no negative or neutral?

The seller should've known better. A higher standard is expected here, whether written/obviously stated or not.

Oust the seller, I want to know the name.

His name is Ryan Bedel - who was previously banned for spanning (at which time I actually stood up for him!). He got himself back into styleforum. So, caveat emptor.

as a fairly frequent seller on this forum and as someone who buys from this forum because it's a better environment than eBay, I agree that full disclosure of a drastic alteration is imperative
Unless there's more to the story, there's something sneaky here
I've held on to merchandise that I expected to sell, that didnt' and wished it were a different size, but wishing it doesn't make it so

I am pretty sure, in retrospect, that another buyer(s) might have had a similar issue. Maybe he/they will post. Either way, I will swallow it. But not without having said that the seller also said he had the suit/jacket dry cleaned when clearly he hadn't.

While I don't disagree that SF should have a higher listing standard than eBay, the size variations between brands/cuts can be illusional thus measurements should always be inquired especially on used items.

Clearly a valuable lesson - I think that there's some extra goodwill, or trust, on the Forum which has been in my experience generally warranted. But I guess you never know.
