Never use EBUYER

I have spent a fortune with them in the past - even pushed them on this site.

Never again.

High end motherboard and chip bought Christmas time. Motherboard developed a fault. Sent it back with the CPU for testing - they returned it saying no fault found - refused delivery and it went straight back - they said they would sort it.

It has taken 15 days in total - phoned them to hurry them up only to be told they have given a full refund. No authorisation from me or anything else. They refunded the money to my ex girlfriends card!!! I went beserk with them - they don't care a damn!!! The CPU was a special edition - no longer available and the replacement is 2x the price.

No money and no computer - not amused - any suggestions.

They have refunded the purchaser, your ex. Thats all they could do. Merchant accounts would not allow them to refund onto another card plus that way they do not pay the transaction charges. Piss poor luck though.

Incidently was having a read on legal aspects of forums yesterday, a long story, but very worrying. See here Sheffield UTD v Neil Hargreaves Proxy server time?

I wonder whether they actually identified anyone from their email address or IP address. If they did, I wonder if they actually took libel action against them - it looks like they'd still have a long way to go to prove that anything posted was actually actionable.
