Most demanding buyer EVER


Recommended Posts

I recieved this message from the buyer...10 days after the auction ended and I had to file 18 seperate payment requests. This buyer has to fucking be kidding.

 

Dear Seller

 

This is very Important

 

I do not understand why did you not send me the 2 invoices like i request.

 

Please do not ship my cds, and hold them.

Second package only silver cd.

 

The 2 packages should not be shipped at the same time, second package should be shipped 10 days after the first package.

 

For the First package, i want you join all the booklets and sandwich them with 2 pieces of a very hard strong flat sturdy cardboard box (bigger then the size of the booklets),then tape it for the booklets did not get out. and do the same for back covers, join all the back covers and sandwich them with 2 pieces of a very hard strong flat sturdy cardboard box (bigger then the size of the back covers),then tape it for the back covers did not get out.

Then tape together the 2 cardboard sandwich, (the booklets cardboard sandwich and the back cover cardboard sandwich) and cover them with a plastic air bobble film and put it inside of a very hard strong sturdy cardboard box.

 

For the second package Package, please make a pile of the silver cd, and between each silver cd put a soft plastic film (that are normaly used to protect food in the refrigerator)this will avoid the cd get friction and by this way avoid to get wear and scratched, then cover all that pile of cd with a soft plastic film between each cd, with a plastic air bobble, and put it inside of a very hard strong sturdy cardboard box, and fill the empty space with some plastic protections or papers.

 

Each of the 2 packages send has "Gift" declare $20 and for the package of the booklets and covers, write "used inserts", and for the package of the silver cd write "used silver cd"

Good Lord. If ever there was anyone begging to be shipped a box full of dead cockroaches and dog poo, it's this guy.

Sounds like this buyer is taking life and those little silver coasters WAY too seriously...

 

 

And nicely put Mr. Butt, nicely put.

Yeah, I think Mike's offered the only possible solution for this transaction. What a f*cking clown this dude is.

If he's prepared to pay what's the problem (remembering to add a service fee)? I guess after 16 years of trading online I have seen more than a few hardcore requests.

If by service fee you mean at least an extra $20 or so, I'd agree. That's the only way I'd bother with all that rubbish; if there was adequate reimbursement. Purely for the fact that there are a billion better ways to spend one's time than going through all that shit for a couple of CDs. ;)

Here are his latest demands. What a dork! I want to cancel the damn transactions.

 

Dear Seller

 

Why did you not send the invoices like i request ?

 

Please do like i explain in my last message, because every time, the seller had told me that they do like you say and never had problems by the way of shipping without jewel cases, i had received the booklets and the back covers very damage.

 

You know today the international delivery is very brutal, and if the items are not very well protect, they will arrived damage for sure.

 

So the way i had explain is the better way, the only save way, this will avoid problems of receive the items damage, and to make complains to paypal, and you received the items back with damage, and we chare negative feedbacks.

 

About the sandwich cardboards, is very easy you only have to cut 2 pieaces of a used very strong sturdy cardboard box (i can that free, they are used to protect TV, washing machines etc)

 

About to ship in 2 packages of course i pay you a extra shipping rate.

 

About the strong cardboard boxes you can get one used box for free, but should be a very hard strong sturdy cardboard box.

 

i can pay you more $15 for this way of packing, for more one package and for the 2 shippings, But remember that is you that should have the concerne to protect very well the items to avoid they get damage when the package get some impacts during the delivery, because is your responsability that i received the items in the conditions i win.

 

about the 2 packages be shipped in 10 diferent days, if to avoid the packages stoped in the costumer service about one month or 2 months, and be opened.

 

Because your delivery is not interest in small packages when small value is declared.

 

I was touched for you told me that you need the money and i`m a person the purchase a lot and i would like this trasaction went well for i could be your client in the future and give you a very big positive feedback.

 

I hope we resolve this in the best way, so please answered me.

 

This is very late in Portugal and i only can be in touched with in 9 hours

Exactly. Take his money, and a bit more for your trouble--tell him it costs more due to size and weight (not entirely a lie)--and complete the transaction. He gets his CDs; you get his money, and a story.

He's probably a decent chap, but man, it must be said... what an absolute freak. Taking his hobby way, waaaaay to serious.

"sandwich them"???? :christmas:

 

Yeah... I like that.

 

You should put the CDs between 2 pieces of bread... just tell him it was the softest thing you could pack them with.

A couple of thoughts.

 

Maybe the customer has just had his fill of crappy packaging in overseas shipments?

 

OR

 

With his detailed description of how everything is to be done, is he setting up a bogus claim against Dave if instructions are not followed to the exact detail?

 

Just wondering.....

Can you take a few hours out of your day tomorrow and find me some 'free boxes' and cut out perfectly shaped sturdy squares to protect the cd's...you must have nothing better to do? ;) Way too much work to protect used cd's.

I wrote back and said I didn't have the time and patience to find and cut out boxes and meet all of his demands. I gave him 3 options and that he had to choose one.

 

1) Send it the way I've been sending for 8 years, with 4000 positive feedback and lots of returning customers I can't be doing too much wrong.

 

2) I ship the 18 cd's in 9 seperate jewel cases to protect the cd's. 2 discs and inserts in each jewel case. Ship in a box. The cost will be 22$ more than I had originaly quoted, but the cd's will be protected to his liking.

 

3) I refund him and we cancel all 18 transactions on Ebay.

 

Those cd's were sold on August 8th, we are now the 18th, will this thing ever go away?

Fair enough. Ultimately it's your call. You can also tell him he should have stated his demands before he bid, and ship 'em they way you normally would. Let us know how it goes, either way.

Was this the bastard that outbid me on all your Canadian AOR listings? If so, cancel the transaction and give them to me. ;)

Wow, I missed the part about there being $18 CDs. In that case, ignore my additional $20 request above, and change it to $100. :lol:

What a freak. Having said that I've had to deal with people like that on a regular basis for over 20 years. If you think it's fun dealing with this guy over the e-mail, imagine the days before the internet! Try talking on the phone with some guy from Israel while he spends fifteen minutes breaking down exactly how he wants his records shipped...and busting into Hebrew (probably swearing) in frustration because you need him to repeat something because of his thick accent. Or the customer from France who just spent over $1000 on Beatles collectibles and now thinks he has the right to tell you ALL the reasons why French people hate Americans. Joy. :doh:

 

I like the 3 options you gave him. I would do the same thing.

    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me.
