Bismarck Sunk!


Bismarck in action. Allegedly....

The 6 sets are no more! I have been refunded in full and to be honest I am unconvinced they were even sent in the first place! Why would you have a listing on ebay as a buy it now with a quantity of 80 plus available yet when phoning the customer service centre for the trader in question I was told that they are currently out of stock and are awaiting a new shipment!? Why would they have refunded me so quickly for an item that was supposedly 'lost in the post?' I get the distinct aroma of a rodent here - and it is not either of our Guinea Pigs!

Not happy....:-(

Very disappointing! Who is the eBay trader? I think we should be told.

Hi Tim,

So as to avoid any possible legal entanglements I shall decline to comment other than to say that when you 'purchase for not as much on the world wide web' then you will be disappointed - even if each set is less than £14 but more than £13.95.

Miffed is the word....;-)

All the best,

DC

Distinct disappointment - on the plus side however there was a full refund - that in itself is a rare occurrence... re-order immediately! :o)

Miffed and bummed out, but a least not out of pocket, which is great news.

Hi Steve,

I guess the price was too good to be true which invariably means that it is! I may have to scale the 6 sets back by a set or two but the re order is in hand!

All the best,

DC

Hi Paul,

I am now convinced that the trader in question actually did not have any stock to begin with but was relying on the same to arrive in due course.

Disappointing but pleased to get the refund!

All the best,

DC

Hard luck old chum.

Hi CK,

It is a temporary setback but what what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. Allegedly....;-)

All the best,
