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.
