Hi all,

Although this post seems to be better suited for the general discussion, I post it here since it has to do with Ferrari memorabilia which is sold by this guy quite often (scaledetails).

I bought from him twice and twice the packaging was severly damaged. He keeps blaming te postal services over and over again. However, he puts his merchandise (im my case around 4 kilo) in a paper package of maybe 5mm thin to sent it to Europe :nuts: :nuts: and then is very surprised it will not make it.

Since I received anything I ordered I did not want him to leave negative feedback. Instead of the two items I left one positive and one neutral explaining the packaging thing. As always I pay the items as soon as possible, just as in this case. I receive a positive and neutral feedback on my account. I have checked his profile a little better and he only seems to leave positive feedback as he receives it himself. Very childish behavior and very unprofessional in my opinion!! :stupid:

I am not really upset with it, but he is the first feedback I have that is not positive (of over 300!) and I did not do anything to deserve that. I mean my profile is not 100% positive anymore since such a weak person cannot stand criticism. I mailed him before I left the feedback and his response kept blaiming the postal services and stating he had never received any complaints before. Well, check his profile and see for yourself.

Just thought you might want to know what you might get into dealing with this guy. I am not saying he is a bad seller, but he definately is not a gentleman to deal with and you might end up with broken or damaged merchandise. On top of that the reaction you get is very childish. Why I post it here? He has many Ferrari memorabilia for sale!

Well, just needed to get that out of my system

Bummer Niels

I have had pretty good luck with Ebay - Just bought a 2001 Wrangler from Boston on there (I am in California) and a 1987 328 GTS from New York that got put on the truck yesterday.

Once I ordered backgammon pieces and they shipped them without letting the varnish dry. The pieces were stuck together and the mosiac came apart while unsticking them. Since the item was only $15, I didn't try & send them back or contact the seller. I left neutral feedback explaining the problem. Of course the seller then gave me neutral feedback with the explanation "Buyer didn't give me a chance to correct problem." Not sure why I get neutral feedback for a prompt payment and then not even returning the item to them!

Like you Niels, it is my only non-positive feedback.

Well,

I got a reaction from the guy which is just too pathatic for words. He said I left him feedback without contacting him first. Of course I did! He then said he had gladly worked something out. Like I said this was the second time with him and he had never offered anything to solve it. And last but not least:

His exact words: "I have thousands of happy customers worldwide and 2 Ferraris in my garage, so i don't think I will miss your bids....."

This guy is not the smartest I ever dealt with. It seems he does not understand what it is all about. It is not about the package that arrived damaged, it has all to do about his 'unfair' use of the feedback feature and after sales.

Received another email containing this statement:

"I was only pointing out the fact that my business ethics can't be that bad if they can allow me to drive my dream cars....Successful business people don't drive Nissans......"

Well, I only have one word for this kind of comments: looser!

Please tell me this is a joke. I would love to see the whole email. WTF? Since when was a NISSAN a sign of success? I'm not knocking the car (well maybe I am) but it is a NISSAN!

Niels you said it. Looowhooo whooser.

No no Andrew,

He was pointing two his two Ferraris. I have a Nissan, but since I am still a student I cannot worry about that. I am no businessman either so.. Anyway, this whole mud throwing was all beside the point I was making so a very lame excuse.

He said DON'T drive Nissans. Right I would hate to be the owner of a new 350Z! I agree with your looser assessment.

Those 350Z cars are way cool!!!!! They are not yet available here, only within one or two weeks and I heard they already sold 30.000 of them in the rest of the world!

Man I love the looks of that car. And being Japanese it won't be technically weak too. One of the very few new affordable cars that are actually cool!

Niels, thanks for informing us of this "bad" Ebay'er: "scaledetails". I will keep an eye out for him and if I see any auction of his, no matter how tempting the item may be, or its price, I won't buy. I imagine you'll do the same.

By-the-way, the 350Z has been on sale here for quite some time. In fact, this past weekend I saw a convertible 350Z... Gorgeous!

Umm, well, I would be willing to bet that the CEO of Nissan has at least one or two in his garage! :wink: :wink:

And, for his information, Sam Walton, the man who started Wal-Mart, drove an old Ford pick-up truck everyday of his BILLION DOLLAR career!!
Fact, his widow and children are numbers 4-8 on Forbes richest people list this year.

Successful people don't drive Nissans...they drive what they want!! :D

i've looked up that guys feedbback, he has a few negative feedbacks and he always respondes very lame to it
i used him once, and didn't had a problem, but that where also only 2-3 cavallino's


that 350z isn't bad looking, especially since it's japanese
