    Of course I would never refund moneys before receiving a return, but this was a reply to one of the feedbacks he left a previous seller.

    Refunded buyer+ shipping, he emailed refusing to ship item back after I refunded

    Hello Mike,

    I am sorry you are unhappy with your purchase, but I am unsure where your accusations carry any merit. The suit in the photos is indeed the exact suit that was sent. It is listed as a vintage suit. Vintage means Old. If you study the photos and description more closely, you will see that this is the case. I never stated that the suit was new, I also disclosed that the pants were not the original match to the jacket. You can even see the union tag inside the pocket, which indicates that the suit is from the 60's or 70's. I'm not sure what you want me to do about this, I have been completely honest and upfront about the age and condition of the suit.

    Thanks for your business,
    Wesley



    OF COURSE THIS IS NOT WHAT I WAS THINKING

    I am still awaiting his reply...perhaps he is still looking up some of the 3 and 4 syllable words in the dictionary. I assume I will be getting a Neg FB no matter what I do at this point. I guess after 1600 possitive (and 1 neutral), I'm due for one...whether I deserve it or not.

    Think about them this way, its how I look at it. Imagine you are serving food in a restaurant and you have 1600 customers. Have you ever heard of ALL 1600 customers walking out the door saying "ZOMG! That food was amazing, the service faster than ever and I loved every second of it!"?

    If any of you answered yes, make me a reservation.

    LOL...was a restaurant manager for 12 years. That happened every day.


    Herre is the much anticipated reply.

    Dear weso0119,

    I typed the word VINTAGE into google and it came back many many different ways "classy" "expensive" "unique" "rare"
    IT DOES NOT SAY VINTAGE ANYTHING VINTAGE IS 50 YEARS OLD FROM THE 1960, SO FOR ME TO ARGUE WITH YOU IS USELESS,
    I 100% WANT MY MONEY BACK, BY THE WAY YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO PROFESSIONALLY PACKAGE AND SHIP IT, YOU PUT IT IN A GARBAGE
    BAG AND A BROWN BOX THAT WAS CRUSHED A LITTLE, WHAT YOU SAID AND DID NOT SAY ON THIS SALE WAS WRONG AND FOR THAT I WANT MY MONEY BACK 100% ............



    - mikeb.716



    Those of you who have dealt with me know I do not use garbage bags for shipping. I use brand new/ unused thankyou branded shopping bags.

    Why'd you crush the box before shipping it, Wes? :lol:

    This guy sounds like a real winner -- already made it to my blocked list.

    My reply...

    Dear mikeb.716,

    Hello again, Thank you for your amicable reply. It has certainly been a pleasure to deal with you. That said, I would like to extend an invitation for you to return my vintage suit. Being both old and classy, it is evidently not the appropriate garment for you. Once my suit arrives in the condition in which it was sent to you, I will refund your original payment. A return based on buyer's remorse is subject to a 10% restocking fee ($4.25).

    I only use brand new boxes and shopping bags for shipment, no used boxes from the trash or garbage bags. I appologize, that the box was a little crushed upon arrival. I'm sure the suit was undamaged by the dented carton, but if you are concerned about the box damage, please feel free to contact your local post office about their handling procedures.

    Please read the return policy in the listing.
    You may return it in the original packaging.
    Please place it back in the shopping bag to avoid any unforseen damage from heavy rain.
    Please use the USPS delivery confirmation and send me the tracking number upon shipment.
    You may ship it to me at the following address,
    xxxxx
    xxx
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxx

    A tip for your future dealings on ebay: The next time you are interested in purchasing an item clearly listed USED, be sure to send the seller a message asking them if it is NEW. That will save you a lot of time.

    Thanks again for your business, all the best.
    Wesley

    Maybe I am missing the big picture here, besides him being a complete idiot. You seems to accept returns with in 14 days. Why dosnet he just ask to return it which is his right per the listing and send it back.
