Can I get my money back??

davidhurn Avatar
banned8y, 1w agoPosted 8 years, 1 week ago
I still haven't received a phone I bought in a thread a few weeks back. Is there anything I can do to get my money back? £105 for nothing is a bit of a con, I know I should have waited for feedback or reputation elsewhere but I just wanted the phone badly. See the original thread for the agreed deal:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/270075/sony-ericsson-c902/

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
David

lesson learnt huh :?

just hope theres been some kinda delay or something and youll get it

all u can do is bug him until u get a answer but debit cards have no protection if u used it willingly and hukd wont get involved so good luck mate

SUGGESTED GUIDELINES FOR BUYERS

(1) Check the traders HUKD trading feedback. Please read details posted here: HUKD FS/FT feedback

(2) Outside of this you can use the poster's eBay feedback to establish some kind of trust level. If you do so make sure you contact the user through eBay to make sure the account they state as theirs is indeed theirs.

(3) Use PayPal. We would recommend only buying from Verified PayPal Members. You can see this status on the second PayPal screen when you go to make a payment, you do not have to complete the payment to view this. PayPal is far from perfect but at least it gives you the chance of recourse if things go pear shaped.

(4) Receive and validate the following information:

1. Landline telephone number Make a CALL to check out the area code and number are correct too!
2. Name and address including postcode
3. Valid e-mail address.
4. Make a small payment to and from each other to validate the PayPal e-mail address.

*PayPal Advice:
If paying by PayPal's 'Gift' option to save on fees, you won't be able to raise a regular dispute with PayPal if a transaction goes wrong. For protection make a normal payment and pay the fees...

(5) If possible, collect and pay for items in person.

[COLOR="DarkRed"]Caveat Emptor. Do NOT proceed with a deal until you are completely satisfied with all details being correct. It's in your best interest to check out these details yourself. This forum is equivalent to a newspaper's classified section, HotUKDeals is not responsible for and does not vouch for any listings or sales/trades in this forum! Use your head, follow the guidelines, evaluate the risk and make your own decision.[/COLOR]


All we can suggest at this point it to try & contact the Seller by PM & by telephone to try & find out what has happened to your mobile. You can also use the button to supply any information you feel is relevant, but other than that I'm afraid I can't offer any other advice. I am sorry however that you haven't received your phone as yet.

Well he's still about which is a good sign. He also has a pic on his profile. If you dont get anywhere you could always go to the police as a last resort.

I paid using my debit card.


Just to add, you did mention that you paid by Debit Card. I'm unsure if it applies here, but there is a Visa Debit Chargeback scheme which you can ask your card provider about - it may be one way to get a refund.

More information here >http://whatconsumer.co.uk/visa-debit-chargeback/

Good luck :thumbsup:

have you tried contacting the seller via pm?

Yes numerous times. He replies saying he has been busy at work. 2 weeks is enough time though don't you think to send out an item???

So is he saying that he hasn't gotten around to sending it or it's lost?

If he hasn't sent it demand shipping today or a refund.
No Joy there then message him every hour until you get him to confirm a time he will send it and insist on a tracking number do not let up if someone thinks they can get away with not sending it then some will, threaten him with the small claims court if necessary.

if he says he's sent it ask for proof of postage, failing that ask for IMEI number which can then be reported as stolen to make the phone unusable, not a lot of comfort but at least no thieving little angels can benefit from it any more

Let us know how it works out

Right well fair enough but having sent payment on the 7th of November, it does kind of highlight you might be a scammer. I will give you till Thursday to send the phone and then I'm afraid I want a refund.

Well prove you're an honest guy by sending the phone. This issue wouldn't have come to light if you'd have sent the phone.

You knew 16 days ago that he wanted it ASAP, and you still haven't gotten around to sending it out. Unless you're somehow unable to get to a post office at any point throughout the week, that says a lot about your respect for your buyers, and that's what gives you a bad reputation. This thread just brings it to light.

Still not received anything. Surely this guy is a scammer...

nope just decided not to sell to you for giving me bad rep give me your details and youll get a ferund ;)
