Welcome to Librarium Online!
so..yeah i bid on a 3rd edition carni on ebay...i win it for 22.50 plus shipping.....and an unadvertised paypal fee.....(which sorta pissed me off) for another 1.50 so the total was 29.68 or something...k so i sorta got ripped but my plan was to 'convert' it to be a dakka fex... because the new carni's look so bad a$$ i figured an elite carni would look more like the 3rd edition ones.. (smaller and less scary looking) anyway..... yeah so i get it in the mail like a week later ..i open it up......yeah.... it was deffinatley old one eye...:wacko: .I was pissed...yet again.... anyway..i figure ok cool..no big deal i'll just use him anyway.....So i open him up and start to glue his body together..i get to the legs....HE HAS 2 LEFT LEGS!! OMG are you serious! Now i'm sittin here trying to glue 2 left legs on my retarded, apparent radiation exposed, one eyed freak. ARGH!( any idea what i can do with my old handycapped fex?:cry:
personally, i'd just sent it back and get your money back, seems a bit expensive to pay nearly 30 for him.
If not, then order a right leg, or model him with one, if thats possible...might look good as a conversion to show his regeneration
Step 1. Contact the seller, maybe he would not know a standard carni from a subaru and would he be so kind as to refund your money and postage if you return the item.
If no joy,
Step 2. Leave horrible feedback on the useless tool who auctioned old 1 eye as a standard fex and would not be a decent seller when you brought up his mistake.
Step 3. Contact Ebay with a "Item not as described" complaint.
If nothing else, you will get all the satisfaction screwing his feedback with the potential of having his account deleted (Ebay takes this stuff quite seriously).
If the seller says, "Well, I just said it was a carnifex, not which one." you are going to have a difficult road.
I am going to say, from experience, that your best bet is if you paid for the auction through PayPal. A few years back I won on a huge mass of "Legos" on Ebay. When they arrived the blocks were about 66% Legos and 33% megabloks and other junk blocks. Legos actually have resale value - by weight when in bulk (informal, but what I based my bid on). Megabloks are worthless. What I offered the seller was I wound send her back the Megabloks and she wound refund me 33% of the sale. She refused and offered about 1/2 that, which did not work for me.
Now, despite the fact I had emails from her that agreed many of the blocks were not Legos and the auction listing only said "Legos" - neither Ebay, nor PayPal would do anything. They would only intervene in the case of grossly inaccurate descriptions. (I guess if she had mailed me 80 lbs of bacon, instead of toys.)
My credit card company, on the other hand, was quite helpful. I submitted the fraud report, mailed the fake blocks back to the seller, then Citibank did their thing. They socked PayPal for the 33%, who I would guess passed it on to the seller.

Don't even bother going through either eBay or PayPal (the same company BTW) as neighter of them will care much about a completed auction. eBay only facilitates the auction and the deal is really between the buyer and seller so they typically don't get involved unless the auction broke the law (and they might be liable).Originally Posted by Da Springy Nids
Feedback is a total joke. Once a seller has a feedback rating over 20 one or two negative feedback results doesn't really do anything. Who cares if your feedback is 99.99% or 98.99%? You can yell and complain to both eBay and PayPal until you're blue in the face and you'll get nothing but frustration from either of them.
Just call your credit card company and report the fraud. Your card company will most likely just refund you the money as it isn't worth their trouble to fight for $30. They'll complain if you do this too often but if it's a one-time thing they shouldn't have a problem. Then you can take your money and buy the parts you need.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
the other day i got an onld tyrand and it had 2 left legs also. all i did was call up cames workshop and toldthem what the ploblem was. all they asked for was the box ## but i dont know if u got that but i have had runin to parts problems twice and only once they asked me for the box/product ##. but any way i think GW has awsom costumer servus from what i can tell. and what is the worst that can happen?
I cant spell get over it.
you just called any GW? can i get the number online....you didn't have to mail them anything back or anything like that?
yep i just called them and told em what was wrong. they asked me like what its product code thingy is but i am betting that is just for proof of purches, but in your case if u tell em what happend they might. i just went to "www.games-workshop.com" on the us one and when to something like "Problems.. well i dont remember egsactly i will go check it out
I cant spell get over it.
