I can't even believe I'm writing this it's all too weird

I was selling a baby monitor on here a while ago which then sold elsewhere.. (http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/349999/price-reduced-to-45-00-philips-baby/) The lady who bought it from me, then sold it on.. now the person who she sold it onto is claiming that the goods are faulty..

the low down:

she wrote:
HI I AM JUST GOING THROUGH MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT WHAT DID I BUY FROM YOU FOR ABOUT £50 SORRY? LOL

i wrote:
hi *******
you bought the baby monitor from me, philips one!
lol

she wrote:
oH tHANKS... oh I have aproblem with it in the fact it does not work. ***** is now 17 weeks and we tried it for the first time last week when we popped him in his room on his own and we could not get it to work at all but it all looked very complicated so decided to ebay it! Anyway the lady I sold to has just emailed me to say it is not working either so just wondering what to do please... so sorry to bother you. I ended up buy a cheap Tomy one for 325 i the end and have my receipt to show you if needed. I just thought the other monitors were too complex for me that is all.
Thanks in advance ********

I haven't written back yet cos i was gobsmacked...and also cos I'm writing this!-

Eeeek!! (Gasp) Just got this now!

she wrote:
pLEASE WHAY HAVE YOU NOT REPLIED.. i AM SORRY BUT i AM UNABLE TO LOOSE such alot of money. I will be contacting the internet police if this matter is not sorted. I no longer have that email address for paypal and my payapl address is as follows
*******@****.com for a refund. on receipt of the refund I will get the lady to post the monitors back. I only sold them for £17 so lost greatly there also but honestly thought it was me that could not get them working. I am sorry if I sound harsh but I am not working due to being onmaternity leave so funds are very low at the moment and think you would feel bitter also in this situation.
Regards *********


What do I do?! It was an unwanted present (plugged in and tested I'm pretty sure of it) they need a phone line in the room which we didn't have so no use keeping em as my previous ones were still good-anyway- its 3months on and she is saying they're not working- I'm confused as to why she hadn't contacted me a week or even a month after- surely if you bought sommat off someone you don't really know, you'd test the goods! I started to think maybe she's going through the 'big spending amounts' and is now wanting to claim a few bob back.. i really don't know what to think

And anyway..is there an 'internet police?!' I definately in all honesty feel for her, but obviously don't wanna hand back the money cos how do I know for sure they didn't get damaged whilst in her posession or the ebayers posession - or even in transit?!

***Just called the family who gave us the monitor- said they'd developed a fault and if she still has the receipt. She pretty much said it's impossible as they moved house 2months ago and said she wouldn't even know where to start looking for it.. said she bought it from Boots though (I didn't pressure her as she's quite ditsy anyway)***

***called Boots, said product has to have receipt in order for warranty to be valid***

What would you do- what should I do?

So you (A) sold something to person B, who then sold it to person C, and this person C is saying it's faulty and expects you A to fix it?

Er, nope. You have no liability to person B, let alone person C !

if she thought it was faulty she shouldnt have sold it on in the first place!!!

While i can understand her position to find it not working, i wouldnt be giving any refunds after so long anyways she should have tested it when she got it like any sensible person would.

Dont worry, sounds like either a scam or a fool!!

If they sold on something without knowing if it worked or not then thats their problem, person B should have sold it as 'not working' so whoever bought knew it needed fixing

i'ld tell her to F*** OFF, she should have tested them before selling them on.
deffinetly not up to you to replace them, tell her that the product you sent was in fully working condition, and that if she found any problem with them she should have informed you before selling them to somebody else.

not bad but I'd change the 'ip provider' bit at the end to the 'internet police' - shes obviously scared of them!

Imo its not your problem. Your A, person who bough it B now the one complaining C?
It should be B's responsability, wasnt faulty when you sold it to them.

Internet police ?? :w00t:

There are no internet police, don't worry !! As for the whole situation, it's the buyer fault (the one you initially sold them to) that they didn't check the item worked when they bought it. If money is so tight, then she shouldn't just be spending £50 on a monitor and throwing it aside without using it. If she sold it for £17 after, that's her fault, not yours.

I'd reply advising that due to the amount of time passed since she bought it off you, you're unwilling to refund as anything could have happened to them in that 3 months, she should have tested them when she recieved them and contacted you then if there were any issues, not 3 months down the line and only after she'd then sold them on to someone else

thanks guys, I think we have a general consensus :thumbsup:

I'm going to email her back- maybe mention it was originally bought from Boots and she can deal with it. Will be polite (as always;-)) Really appreciate all your help..

REP TO ALL! I'm celebrating! (might as well before the 'internet police' arrive and take me away:shock:)

As all of the above. It is common sence if you buy something second hand the 1st thing you do is test it. If they contacted you to say if was faulty or asked for advice on how to getting working then that is prob different. But to sell it on and expect you to sort it, i dont think they have a leg to stand on. Keep all of the emails etc for your records.
Email them back and say sorry you are not prepared to do anything at all about it.

dont bother with anymore replies if she emails back unless you want a laugh, you could even post her responce on here id love to see it lol

email her back and tell her you have just discovered that she paid you with forged money and have called the "money police"-should keep her confused for a bit.
#25
I'd call the internet police and report her.

EDIT - I'm being silly here, you can't call the internet police, e-mail them.

I smells a scam.
It's simple - buyer beware.

Tell her to send you a picture of the item together with her dressed as an internet policewoman and then you'll send her the money back.

Reading this just cheered me up!
#31
this thread is making me laff! I was actually worried before (!)

*post #12 onwards- your 'rep' is owed and will be given when 'allowed'.. the internet police have just contacted me and stated that I can't give out any more as i've given out too much (ok- so it was the HUKD pop up wotsit..)
#32
scam scam scam scam.

Sounds me to me like the lady you sold it to may have had her account hacked. If she was looking for the seller she would know how much she paid for the baby monitor and would be able to work out the name from the amount, she would then email you and say "was it you I bought the baby monitor from?" not "what did I buy from you?"

Oh and they want the money paying to a different account? seriously, tell them to bog off.

scam scammmmm
#33
This totally sounds like a scam to me.

I agree with chipsticks, sounds like the person has had there paypal account hacked or maybe even just some scammer looking through someones feedback on ebay to see what they've bought and how much for.

I'd maybe get in touch with paypal and have them investigate the email addy they gave you as it definetly sounds dodgy and wouldn't be fair if someone else didnt realise it was a scam and fell for it.

It is funny though!
#35
it was sold on here wasnt it? or have i read wrong?

deffo a scam tho

so she said it was faulty then sold it on? well then its her own fault for trying to sell faulty stuff... Dont worry about it hunny, shes just trying to get some extra money! If the buyer (c) has said its faulty then its the seller who is at fault which in this case person b for selling it to person c!
#39
cant believe u are asking this, common sense would tell u that its thier problem not yours, they sold it on so liability lies with them
tell the person to do 1, the cheek of it!
