I agreed to purchase this C-19 from SunnyW. I had made an offer on the C-19 on Sept 2/12. Seller refused my offer and counter offered on the same day. I made payment by paypal on Sept 2/12. On Sept 4/12 my money was refunded and was told that he forgot that his youngest wanted a system so he refunded my money but yet the C-19 was sold to another CAM member. What gives???? I have e-mails to support this claim.

That sounds really bad. Does the seller have a credible explanation?
Took your money then renegged? Bad form IMHO...

This is the quote from the e-mail:

"Good morning Mike,
I got a problem here as my youngest one wanted my old system and I completely forgotten about it. For that reason, I will have to cancel the sale and completely reimburse the amount paid to me immediately.

I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Regards,

Name withheld"

How do you know the unit was sold to another CAM member? It's possible, I suppose, that what the seller told you was true, but I'll admit it sounds pretty fishy. More than likely the seller got an offer from someone else for closer to the original asking price, but my point is how do you know for sure? Either way it's a slimeball thing to do but to be absolutely honest the seller has the right to cancel the sale, even at that late point, it's just really scummy to do so.

I checked the seller's feedback and Highendworld had left feedback on this pre-amp.

What gives is your looking for another preamp.

It sucks but the guy changed his mind for whatever reason.

Hmmm yep, don't know why I hadn't thought to check the sellers feedback, good work. This seller had zero feedback prior to this sale and has been a member for less than a year. He's off to an auspicious start here on CAM. Obviously he found a better offer after accepting yours. I would think, considering the fact that an agreement had been reached between you and the seller, and the fact that the money was sent and received, that you would be fully within your rights and fully within the rules of CAM to leave negative feedback for this member and should certainly do so in my opinion.

Bad deal for sure. I think it's important that you brought this seller's slippery move to the attention of the community . I personally would not do what he did its not cool at all but if that's the kind of person he is then thanks for letting the rest of us know. What's that old saying"what goes around ........"

Well, it seems some people have a slightly different sense of obligation... It's bad enough when outside elements contribute to queering up a transaction(**** does indeed happen sometimes) but to cancel a paid for deal? On the strength of a lie? Then resell it on the same site? YIKES!!! This is first class stupidity on the sellers part and deserves a "yellow" feedback as a caution to others that this guy is a tool.
