Bought a phone in the FS/FTsection on here, and never recieved it
Pm seller and finally got a response saying they had posted it recorded delivery but had now lost/thown out the proof

They are now refusing to refund any funds..

Is there anything i can do ?

Never had a bad trade on here until now

They have to refund you, or face the wrath of the mods. Simple.

Thanks Junkenstein73, we'll take a look...

Perhaps they give a little more consideration when you call them. It's easy to fob off via PM and hide behind responsibilities.

Let us know how you get on, I'll try to get in touch meantime.

I'm curious though, as it's no excuse for the other seller to not complete the refund.

Failure to follow FS/FT rules in full leads to an increased risk of trades being unresolved. No stats to back it up, but it's fairly well appreciated.

Delay's and lost parcels do happen, but there's no excuse not to try and rectify the situation....

Don't give up - he's taking the mick. You deserve your money back.
I had it recently with a wifi card on here, and the seller was absolutely fine about refund - the Royal Mail are cack and thats what the proof of postage is there for

He's offering to return your game and exchange your loss for a couple of games.

The seller seems to ignore the rest of their responsibilities. If you're not happy with an exchange to compensate, let me know and I'll do what needs to be done on the HUKD side of things.

if he doesn't refund take him to small claims, if you get certain benefits it doesn't cost a penny (including working tax credits)

If more people did actually go through with it then people might think twice about ripping others off!

Neither would I, however as it's the best you're appearing to get, I'll close this thread and deal with the member.

We advise you always to follow fs/ft rules to the max should you need to escalate such disputes in the event of the OP not being around.

Good luck.
