Careful!
Always make sure you clarify functional condition prior to agreeing to buy!!!!!!

I bought a used AR600 from HEATEDHAT: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=385021

in this thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1665076

He told me via pm that he wasn't able to verify it was working as it came from a friend, however he thought it would work just fine.

The receiver arrived completely dead. I contacted the him and politely requested a small $15 refund of the $20 that I paid.

Here was his reply:

If i where you i would let it go. but then again 90.00 is 90.00 and i would consider getting my hands on it......i did have to pay extra for it. And you are entitled to it. Call local post office. makes and difference to you i am just slightly surprised i was dead.
To me, he's attempting blatant mail fraud. He sold a non-functional item, and I think he knew this before hand as he insured a $20 purchase for $90!

So, instead of issuing a $15 refund, he suggested I defraud the postal service out of $90.

BUYER BEWARE!

I'm not going to delete your post. I sent you the link to this thread in the first place.
It's not about the $20... its about try to cheat.

Well he told u that the rx might not work. So u took a gamble u tried to catch the deal of the century n lost. But on the other end heated telling him that was ill advised. I don't think he owes u anything cause it was stated before it was paid for. U decide to roll the dice. As the title says that is mail fraud.. imo. Also imo ur just throwing a fit cause it doesn't work just my 2 cents

Wanted to add that I'm in no way surprised that you quickly came to your friends defense. It appears that you are the only one listed on his page as a "friend"

My supposition is that he called you and asked you to post in his favor.

Now, yes, he did say he couldn't verify it was working. Then why not let me return it for a full refund then?? Don't insure for $90 with intent to defraud the USPS.

I'm still waiting to find out how PayPal is going to handle this claim. At this point, it is not about the money AT ALL! Take a peak at the 70" Slick in my Avatar. A $20 loss isn't going to send me out panhandling. However, I don't like situations where sellers don't stand behind what they sell, and/or attempt to take advantage of people.

I've opened this thread and posted this information to protect the fragile trust that we traders have here on RCGroups. After all, where else do you send sometimes large amounts of money to someone in another state or country and hope that they fulfill their end of the bargain?

Gyro, I hope you have opened a claim with paypal. They should rule in your favor.

heatedhat you need to calm down before you are banned. The moderators here dont play around. As for the receiver it was a 50/50 shot.
