Yea...the auction picture with all that equipment in the background and the seller says he's "unable to test" so selling as-is. I run like the wind from those auctions.

You know that doesn't seem to matter anymore. I think ebay changed policy again and even items listed as For Parts or Not Working are tagged with "covered by ebay buyer protection."


So maybe you can force a return of any non working junk now.

I'll buy non working junk for parts, I just want the seller to be forthcoming.
Years ago I sold a 2M Yaesu all mode that the VFO would not lock on. I listed it just as it was and someone still paid $90 for it.

Yep....if it sez non working and you buy it.....then I do not see why it would be covered.....but if it sez "Used" and working...but does not work when you get it....then you deserve to get your $$ back.

I like the dudes that post a popular style of radio and sell it as is, or untested and sold for parts, but they'll put a big BIN or a high reserve price.

They warn you it may not work, but yet, place a "working" price on it.

TOOLS!

So ... what is the Problem ??? If you're trying to sell something, you want to get the most $$$ for it, without misrepresenting what it is. As a buyer, you need to read between the lines and determine what it REALLY is and what it's worth to you. It's just a game of give and take, and if you can't play the game ... well that's your problem.

You and I are obviously worlds apart.

When I sell something, I am not looking to get the most out of it that I can. I will ask a fair price based on what I feel it's worth. I have plenty of experience reading between the lines. I can also spot a greedy ass f**k a mile away.

You can buy and sell your trinkets as you see fit, It's no business of mine.

If I can't test or verify an item is working or not, I'll price it accordingly and not make it a crap shoot. I surely will not put a "working" price on it.

IAW, when you buy something from me, you won't get hosed, and I won't shake your hand with a smirk knowing I just ripped you off.

When eBay was very strict with amp sales,

I sold a Cobra 450XL amp

I sold it as is not working, parts only.

It listed for $200 buy it now

I said the amp worked just fine BEFORE I took the fuse out. I needed the fuse for another project. It would no longer work without the fuse so you had to buy a new fuse. For this reason it is being sold as a part amp.

It sold

I even included the fuse when I shipped it

I got positive feedback
