I know eBuyer deals are banned, but i'm sure horror stories aren't. Well this hasn't turned into a complete horror movie but it's looking that way.
I purchased the Htachi Deskstar 1TB Hard Drive (now i know why they call it deathstar, because you get so unlucky with buying it) from eBuyer and i paid £10 for the next day delivery.
I REALLY need this hard drive as my current is full and i need to balance my data out. Anyway, that's beside the point. I paid for next day delivery and expected it this morning.
I opened my front door only to find a card saying 'we called to deliver your parcel'. And that was it. He'd ALLEDGEDLY knocked on the door and left a card. No attempt to deliver to a neighbours house on the off chance i had genuinely missed the delivery. No nothing.
I paid £10 and didn't recieve the item (and i can assure you, if he knocked on my door, it must have been the most gentle knock ever) and even so, there was no attempt to leave it with a neighbour.
I phoned up eBuyer and explained i had booked a day off work because i needed this item and the lady was actually very helpful, she phoned CityLink, but Citylink said the guy delivering the goods didnt have his mobile phone on him so there was no way of contacting him. They've sent him a text message to another known mobile he has saying to attempt delivery this afternoon.
So i'm in limbo at the moment. will i or will i not get the item?
Citylink are a bit of a joke if you ask me.
