Saying "because you have bought before I will give you and F&F discount" is a con.

Saying "I want to send you a different item than what is shown and one that is damaged and disfunctional, so I am offering an F&F discount" would have been truthful and would not have been a con.

Actually all the seller had to do was show the correct photos, and say he's not sure if it works. Then it wouldn't have been a con to sell and ask for F&F. No surprise he didn't go that route.

Greed is when someone who gets a lot of money from people here has no issue with completely burning someone.
Seems least excusable for a pro seller to try to sell asking for PP gift behind the scenes and burn people. Not exactly the same thing as the returning new member who says they know someone who has what you placed a wanted ad for, and wants PP gift payment.

Agreed, but I have less love for a scammer than someone who falls for the scam, in any case. Again this ad wasn't placed by the reoccurring new guy that wants F&F.

Iíve had one non purchasing experience with Jessie and that was when the ďpilotĒ in residence jumped one of his posts by accident and he demanded an apology which was given. Jessie wasnít at all gracious in his response. He splits hairs and demands perfection but doesnít perform in kind. This incident is out and out deception and Iím glad someone is holding him accountable.

This has nothing to do with empathy.... Nothing...
The OP started this post to call out the seller and rightfully so. I don't care if he sent a MO, cash, or F&F. The seller ripped him off and needs to make it right.

I highly suggest sending the seller a link to this thread if you did not already.
Also if you get no reply you can keep posting in his for sale threads mentioning he will not reply to your issue.

So let me get this straight. Member comes here and reports a bad deal and admits where he made mistakes so we can all learn and he gets criticized in return? Did I read this right? wow

OP, I hope it works out for you. Thank you for the heads up on this seller.

Regardless of the payment method, the buyer states he didn't receive what was advertised. Important information for the rest of us.
Curiously, hadawayj has never left feedback for the OP, yet the claim is that the OP was offered a discount because of past dealings. I'm inclined to believe that hadawayj is more concerned about his end of a deal than the buyer's (including leaving a rating for buyers). Just my opinion, but I wouldn't deal with him based on what has been presented here.

I can't believe there are still people dumb enough to do FF with a stranger.

Did you happen to pay with a credit card through paypal (even a debit). They don't have to adhere to paypal's FF no coverage. File a claim with them
