Default Scott Hassel - Be careful before doing business with

His eBay ID is mr.ginter

I purchased an item off of eBay and he insisted on waiting until my check cleared before sending item which i thought was wrong because we were both trying to be trustful of each other. Warning flag #1. I agreed to buy the item and agreed that the only way that I could return was if it was a repro, mistake #2. I received the item and not only was it not described accurately, it had far more damage (water) than he indicated and was repaired in multiple areas of the item. He now refuses to refund money and yes, I know I agreed to the terms (mainly I could only return the item if it was a repro) however, given the condition and many issues of the sign, I feel he should either let me return the item or refund me some of my money. Either way, I would be very careful of him and any of his items.

I have actually never heard of anyone shipping an item before a check clears. Maybe if the two parties know each other well. Other than that, waiting for a check to clear is normal. If someone were to ship and the check bounces, the seller has little recourse. Can't speak to the rest of the transaction though.

Chris, you are correct however, I thought that trust, in this situation is a two way street because now, I have no recourse either. I can certainly understand your point of view however

It happened to me once as well. It was an out-and-out fraud. I tried to resolve the issue several different ways, but ended up calling the person's local police department to have them investigate. It was a long process, but I did get my money back. I have been reluctant to use checks for these types of transactions ever since.

Hey Bob,

you mentioned a sign, but I'm wondering what the item is, if you don't mind me asking?

The title of this thread really got my attention . . .

I've been dabbling in cigarette packs over the last couple years and have gotten to know mr.ginter (Scott Hassel). I've purchased better than a dozen items from him, some over eBay, others directly, and I have had nothing but positive experiences. Of more value than the items I've purchased is the mentoring he has graciously extended. He has gone above and beyond what I would expect. Sorry to hear of your troubles Bob. I hope the two of you will find a fair and mutually satisfying solution.

I think he is an A-hole and he has been banned from this site for a good while.

And I have bought thousands of dollars of packs from him, never again. A real jerk in my book.
I remember when he tried to report me to me LOL. I think he thought we were still hosted by network54 but we were on our new platform. I love it when someone reports yourself to yourself.

Default Don't know any of the parties....

1 - Agree that if you are paying by check and I don;t know you well, I'm holding item till check clears. I would never agree to only return something (presuming digital images exclusively were all I had to go on) if it were fake - even well meaning individuals can take an unusually good picture that misses some relevant defect. I'd sooner agree to disagree and move on if a seller was insistent on that term.

Sorry you had the situation - Hope it works out and sounds like the sellers reputation precedes him.
