I have no idea on the legal side Elgs, but what were you going to do with 400 cans of out of date polish?

elgin eagle 17-11-2017 02:11 PM

Thanks guys

1 I paid for the varnish with PayPal but the seller has fulfilled their end of the bargain as far as I can see. I paid a 14 pound deposit to the scammer via Shiply site but that has been credited pending a new courier.
2 I need a little varnish but was intending to sell the rest/keep it for future generations.

He saw you alright. He was probably looking for you, to be honest.

Absolutely. I have the same fight over phones and trainers but for some reason others seem to think it acceptable, which causes the inevitable "Well so and so has a pair of Nike XYZ trainers at £150" NO :veryangry

Was reminded of something whilst reading a post elsewhere about having to learn cursive/joined up writing...

handwriting that includes capital letters for no apparent reason e.g. crystAl pAlAce

Oh I see. Don’t know why I read it as polish as i knew it was varnish’s

Anyhow, it’s a tough one and don’t know where you go with that one. I suppose it’s not to do with eBay as such, nor the seller. It’s a form of theft so I suppose the police, although they’ll probably say “we’ll look into it” say goodbye to you and chuck the paperwork in the bin.

I am very much guilty of this, I blame my dad who writes everything in caps.

Here’s a two in one annoyance deal.

1. People who cannot get themselves to the railway station on time for their train but then realise they may get reprimanded for being late for work. Either get up earlier or take the hit for being late.

2. Short trains that pull up many yards away from the entrance to the platform.

I get a train to work but get off before it reaches ‘the Big Smoke’ (as a previous poster hates it being called [emoji23] ). I then have to step aside to avoid the people in 1. Running along the platform to get to 2. Before it departs. Recipe for an accident.

Yeah that's what I think will happen as well Andy.

Got his name and an address of sorts so will try a new courier and go down the police route if more problems occur.

I know it's bad. Soon they will be starting sentences with small letters and asking questions without a question mark.

We head that argument off with a "good for them."
