The following video chronciles my unboxing of what I expect to be as described a 4.2ghz quad core processor pc, and how I get triggered as the seller gets around the promised refund by scamming me for a triple.

So I had been having some issues with my current pc as technology progressed, the main two being that I couldn’t upgrade the ram on my current system and the graphics card at 1gb only reached opengl 3.1 equivalent where more and more games required 3.3 minimum despite being within specifications so I decided if I’m going to upgrade I might as well do it properly, freeing up my other pc to be able to switch between both while one is doing intensive actions like processing or even when uploading to sites which require full persistent use of the system otherwise it cancels and causes problems. So when I found this system for a reasonable price I was happy, and being able to get an 8gb graphics card to go with it made this a really good upgrade which should last for a while.

Of course when first booting up the system I was shocked to discover it was in fact only 3.1ghz quad core (although it says something about 10 when booted up the bios confirms it’s quad) The seller agreed instantly to the refund request, so perhaps you’re thinking at this stage things are fine, of course the seller starts saying how he’ll take it back severely and dangerously overclock the processor to 4.2ghz, such a large leap would burn out the computer in no time and not be good especially with playing intensive games while recording as I planned, this would not be a safe system. So I refused and wanted my refund, still not coming I suggested very specifically a 4.1ghz a10 7890k processor would be ideal as a replacment as it is the closest to 4.2ghz I could find compatible with the system, unsure if it was fm2+ though as I needed that for the graphics card I had also purchased to be able to work.

The seller replies yes we can do that for £50 extra, great you would think I didn’t mind paying an additional £50 to avoid having to do this entire process again and just to get it over with, I would get my 4.1ghz quad core processor and everything would be fine right? Wrong, the seller delays in sending the processor to the point I have to ask where the processor is, before I get a response in my inbox within 10 minutes of each other (I really should’ve added this into the video) the seller has contacted ebay from it being a refund to it instantly being closed, then the seller informs me that because of the delays instead of the a10 7890k processor we agreed upon he would “UPGRADE” to an a10 7860k which is in fact a downgrade at only 3.6ghz quad core, and oh here’s a tracking number which when you enter into royal mail comes up as non existent, so triple scammed.

The seller knows we agreed upon the 7890k I did make another suggestion for a 3.9ghz quad core processor but we agreed upon the 7890k, so to be informed he would send another where he specifically closed the return first before stating the processor would be a different processor was very scumbag behavior. At this point I had been completely triggered, already severely depressed and ill over the situation taking forever and feeling like I’m letting down developers I have made promises to on the assumption this pc would arrive correct I had planned to get some good review on games that would only run on this system, whilst also taking on additional load of smaller games I could do on the old system while things render and upload, of course getting ripped off and scammed has spiraled me into depression so next to nothing has been done other than publishing already uploaded video’s

Being very triggered, angry and depressed I decided it was appropriate to post negative feedback at this point, he had closed my refund somehow in an instant whilst scamming me additionally knowing that not only did my payment mention the specific processor but we had agreed on a specific processor which would put things right and a price for this, where he could’ve named any price and it would be up to me to accept or refuse and continue the refund, the scammer decided he wanted to go for that elusive triple and oh baby a triple did he get.

So I posted my feedback, stating how it was only 3.1ghz not 4.2 as advertised, how the seller promised an a10 7890k for £50 extra but states he’s sending a10 7860k (which I doubt because of the fake tracking, he’s simply fished for agreement words to get the refund closed and keep his scammed funds.)

I’ve tried messaging ebay but ebay are on the scammer’s side, so you cannot trust ebay, oh and my feedback which was correct and showed exactly what happened in the entire process, yeah ebay removed that too instantly for the scammer, so how on earth can you trust any ebay feedback scores if scam artists can do whatever they want to get feedback which is correct and appropriate warning other buyers of exactly what happened removed in an instant? And I will note there are other negative comments besides those I have shown that I saw before which seem to have since been removed by ebay also, so somehow this scammer is getting away with constantly scamming people and getting negative feedback removed which shows the true extent of how much this ebay user scams people

Oh and don’t think they’re just on ebay, a little research shows they have their own website and also do sell as a third party on amazon, so beware what you buy, you cannot trust the item descriptions and you have no protection from ebay when you get scammed, especially when the scammer triple scams you and rips you off additional funds deliberately making the entire situation a mess avoiding sending the very specific processor agreed upon for an agreed price which would have fixed the entire situation, the scammer had to go that extra step to extort extra funds and make this even messier, how hard would it to have simply sent the processor we agreed upon, or got a correct price for whatever they needed to get that processor? I wanted a very specific processor and the scammer could not resist that extra level of scamming.

Users like that need to be banned forever from ebay.

I ordered a new pc off ebay to get around the issues I’ve been having with ram difficulties with some more recent games and decided if I’m going to upgrade I might as well do it completely and get a really reasonable rig for the best price I can find, well I did get a reasonable one but it didn’t come at the specifications it was listed as on ebay, moral of the story is that you should never buy off ebay as this and my last pc both had problems with not being as described… Well you can but expect things to not be as described and have to get around those issues, and my way around this was to pay an extra £50 to get the processor of the standard I expected and not a downgrade but still get a reasonable upgraded rig, which I will do another post on later.

I haven’t got as many updates and articles out as I would have liked, I had intended for this new pc to arrive and make life a lot easier with being able to do other things on the other rig while edited video’s render on this one and vice versa without having to worry about lack of memory issues preventing rendering and causing problems (as 4gb just isn’t enough these days) and it doesn’t help that my camcorder died and has been buggy since I managed to partially revive it (sounding like it’s going to explode with a high pitched whine growing in intensity by the second when you turn it on is not fun, and the troubles connecting it to the pc makes me avoid using it. I will post a review of the camcorder finally at some point too, show how that wasn’t as simple as record and upload as the stupid thing records in mono and very quiet so I need to use the samson microphone separately to record a stereo track and edit this onto the track and then process and render which creates additional problems and editing time.

Anyway with this update I hope to add more content soon, I have a number of reviews I’m working on which on the old pc are of a lower quality than I can provide on the new pc, as I could ideally use full graphical settings on the new system while recording without having input lag or other issues, and hopefully OBS will actually record at 60fps and not need processing as camtasia does reduce everything to 30fps only in output.

I have also been thinking about redesigning the site in some form as it is a little outdated, it has the word blurb I thought was clever when the site started out as simply written articles, and since expanding into video’s I feel maybe I should make things a little more colourful and include pictures of myself even though I don’t feel very photogenic at present and need to get back into shape. But I do feel maybe I should have better more obvious social links on the site and have a nicer looking banner that isn’t word spaghetti, as most people don’t get the joke just as they don’t seem to get the hand drawn logo, but it is good to see some bigger youtubers appreciate the anti troll terrible pun because you can’t please them anyway as pewdiepie has his hand drawn intro and ssohpkc has the hand drawn bioshock thumbnail, and the point is you can never please them anyway and even if you make it look reasonable they say it’s shit so why not make it as shit as you can!

In the meantime do feel free to subscribe to the various channels and social media links as all the youtubers say “it really helps” and shows what you like etc, and is simply the easiest way to know of new content, twitter will post new articles here, subscriptions will show individual video’s of the lets plays etc.

Thanks for your support and if there is something in particular you are looking for more of do let me know, or any particular games or content you’d like me to make I welcome suggestions, I do have some upcoming things I have put off as they need the new system including syndrome which has just been released and the embargo has now passed and I want to play on the better system, clustertruck without any input lag so I wont flop about like a fish, D4 as hopefully it’ll actually work on the new system even though it should on this one lol! Soul axiom as I really like wales interactive and I’ve been looking forward to getting on with that. Along with many more reviews and other indie games I’ve got in the line as well as finishing off the existing series’

Stay tuned very soon for some steam based board games which I have also got under review and are being uploaded very soon.
