Topic review - VERY BAD TRADER ALERT
Author Message
  Post subject:  BAD TRADER ALERT ?  Reply with quote
hello,

did someone had one day an error in modelkits sent by hobbyeasy ? if yes, how did that resolved ?

here is a copy of a mail I sent to them, hoping for a good resolution :

Quote:
Dear sirs,

I contact you concerning order # (CUT BY MYSELF).

This order has been placed by my girlfriend to make me a birthday gift, and her account has been created at this occasion (username "(CUT BY MYSELF)"; password "(CUT BY MYSELF)").

As you can see, I am myself a very regular customer, placing orders at least since 2011 and did never had the least problem with your service (username "(CUT BY MYSELF)"; password "(CUT BY MYSELF)"). Just to explain you that I am not here to try to scam you or obtain a kit that wasn't paid for.

We already wrote to you the 5th of october but didn't received a response yet.


So here is the problem :

I suppose you did a mistake while packaging our order, because we received the wrong kit :
In parcel # (CUT BY MYSELF), we received Tamiya model # 78007 (1/350 USS ENTERPRISE) but we ordered Tamiya model # 78025 (1/350 YAMATO (new mold)).
As you can see, the ordered model was also a lot more expensive than the one received and I have no interest in the sent model.

Can you tell us what we have to do or what you plan to do for us to receive the correct ordered item (Tamiya # 78025) ? Do you want or need a picture of the box of the model received by us ?

Thank you.

Andre BRANDT & Sonia JOTZ


Does this mail seems clear and correct ? I am not really an English spoker...
And I really hope this will resolve at best.
If I receive a response or some news of any kind, I will report here back.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT : high quality customer service : replacement kit is already en route !

Though this is closing the barn door after the horses have escaped, I would suggest that you consider setting up a PayPal account for transactions like this. PayPal provides protections for both buyer and seller. I have always required pre-payment via PayPal on anything I've sold and every transaction has gone like clockwork.

Just a thought, but I do hope you pursue this and get satisfaction. This guy is nothing but the most base kind of thief.

Bob,

It was all sent US Mail. I tried opening a fraud complaint and I never heard back. With everything that happened afterwards with my daughter, it became an afterthought.

I do try and send Ole Gerry an email everyday, letting him know I'm thinking of him and asking where my money (or models) are.


Martin, I certainly understand your proper placement of your priorities in this matter. But, I would not give up on the Postal Inspector's office quite yet. I'm sure you've heard the old adage that "the squeaky wheel gets the grease". If I were in your position I would make a pest of myself with the postal inspector's office and see if being that proverbial squeaky wheel gets them motivated to come to your assistance. After all, what have you to loose.

I've been e-mailing him (but not viruses). He had the audacity to tell me to stop harassing him, or he'd call the police. Ahahahahahahaha! That's rich. The thief calling the cops because I'm harassing him. Pay up, you piece of sh*t, and I'll stop e-mailing him.

I told him to call the cops, because I wasn't going to leave him alone until he paid up. Feel free to send him a note and tell him he's a crook: gerrymarks1959@hotmail.com



Normally I just whistle past the graveyard over issues like this, BUT.... when a man is deliberately insolent after being so blatantly in the wrong it is as if he just walked in, grabbed your property, gets in your face and says, "this is now mine, what are you going to do about it"? That kind of behavior sends me into ORBIT!

At your behest, I think I'll also have a little "talk" with him.

So the Corner Brook Detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police did all they could, but were not able to retrieve from me the missing kits or money that Mr. Marks stole from me. I thank them for their efforts.

I e-mailed Mr Marks and told him that this wasn't over and that one day, he'd turn around and find me there, looking to resolve this peacefully. He had the nerve to email me back, curse me out in all CAPS and call me a piece of sh*t. What a despicable human being.

For those of you who have been defrauded by Mr Marks, maybe you want to call him and tell him to make things right. The police told me he lives in Irishtown. A google search turned up this phone number: Marks, Gerald Jr 709-783-2425

He is allegedly married, I wonder if his wife knows what a fine, upstanding community man her husband is?

I'm thinking about a complete ban for him even viewing this site and the others. I keep hoping he will make good on the bad deals first.

What amazes me is that the original perpetrator is still wanting to hang around in this community. That takes some real nerve. Or a complete lack of ethics, which I guess is consistent with what we've heard.

I lived in Nfld for 8 years and all I can say is this guy is not a typical Newf. At all. Of all the places I've lived, that province has the most down-to-earth, optimistic and honest folks I ever met.

All it takes is one I guess. Good luck and I hope you get your remedy from him.
