Yes, but the seller must be a “merchant,” not an isolated seller.

Well he finally left feedback, and the seller left feedback saying the buyer damaged the item, when he already admitted sending a different item than the one in the photo.

Likely could have figured he could push the guy into sending it to him afterward. Seriously, do people expect to get the girl in the photo with the model aircraft? Could at least ask, since it's unlikely.

Yep. Never understood the "one of the good guys" feedbacks they get either. I simply give feedback based on the deal. I'm not promoting people as trustworthy when I don't even know them. I've sent a bunch of free stuff and not one person left feedback saying so, as I guess they must be embarrassed about it. Maybe they're afraid it would make me look trustworthy and I'd then rip someone off. Fair enough, but they how do they not seem to have a problem promoting people as trustworthy with hero level feedback, who are here for the money.

Still at it. F&F discounts available. Wonder if you actually get the one in the photo: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...-carrying-Case

WOW so this character is still listing the same listing over and over even though he is not sending the items in the pics. This should not be allowed on RCG. Wonder if we can just keep reporting his listings as we already know the buyer will not receive the exact items in the pics but similar items. On RCG's end we do not have proof that the buyer will not receive the items in the pics even though we know that is the case.

A word of warning for everyone who sells and has a large number of positive feedback, it does not mean anything, when one low feedback newbie person can post something like these lies and everyone believes them.
Calling the OP a liar after you admit sending an item that was not what was listed for sale?? Based on your own words, as supplied by that lying OP, THIS ONE IS ON YOU.

He has been a member here for over 4 years and a trader rating of 23. I think posting generic pictures of a relatively expensive used item and failing to disclose such after questions are asked is a pretty newbie move.

You admit you did not send the item pictured. You should refund his money and admit your mistake.

I agree. Not sending the actual drone from the pics is shady, and cheating PayPal by asking for friends and family is double shady.

Give the guy his money back and admit you made an error.

Pics of for sale items should be of what is actually being sold .Buyer will actually see what he is buying with his hard earned $$$$. You cannot substitute another item

Agree with the others here. You advertised a "cheese burger royal", then sent the guy a slider! You think it's okay because you "should've, but didn't, add a disclaimer"! Really! So the OP is the liar? Man up and pony up!

F&F mistake aside, this is a definite "refund his money" situation.

I'll throw in my 2 cents as well. The seller made a HUGE HUGE HUGE mistake by not disclosing that the item in the pic isn't what he would ship. I suspect the buyer could file mail fraud charges and win on this one. Better suck it up and make this right is my advice. And oh by the way, making it right doesn't including calling the guy a liar, hiding behind trader ratings, or saying he damaged it. You are the one who didn't disclose the bait and switch so as someone else said, this one is on you. Correct it, learn, and move on.

It's a perfect example of saying goodbye to your money when using F&F.. Are you really $25 ahead of the game now ?

After all this , Paypal would have you whole again, in no time, with the 'Item not as described' clause....

A rather old saying, "two wrongs don't make it right".
