eddiemoney what a joke!!!!
« on: December 15, 2010, 06:00:06 AM »
Agreed to purchase this ball
http://www.ballreviews.com/Forum/Replies.asp?TopicID=269796&ForumID=107&CategoryID=12
Didn''t ask for pics because said it was under 10 games, and a single drill. Boy I should have the ball is a second drill. And looks like it was bowled with in a parking lot. I contacted him and he said the thumb had a slug in it. I''m not a genius by any means but iknow what plug and slugs look like. Also the fingers were plugged. Ill post pics a little later so everyone can see them. I contacted him for a refund but he said no, so I submited a dispute with paypal hopfully they get me a refund. Do not buy from this guy.

Here''s the pics

That ball looks about as "new" as Phyllis Diller's pussee.  If the ball has a return address on it, I have a suggestion for you.  Go to the post office and pick up a change of address card.  Write his name and address on it and then write down where you want his mail to go.

That'll teach the lying mo' fo'...

WOW, that sucks.. S.O.B.. looks more like 750 games...

It's sad that there is people like this just waiting to scam somebody.. I can't wait to hear his side of the story..

Just a couple of questions...
Did you check to see if he had any good/bad transactions on the boards..?  
And not wanting to send out pictures is a BIG red flag..
I see he has no profile.. Another red flag..  
Always try and find others who might have done some dealing with a person first.. Sorry to hear you've been had, but this is happening ALL to often on the forums.. Need to do some research before buying...

Good luck..

Sorry that you got scamed, but you do have to be careful on these boards.

Yes the ball looks like it has been used and abused, but hopefully paypal will take care of it.

I have only done a few transaction on these boards, but I have only done it with well known people on this forum. So far so good.

To me that ball does not look to me like new less than 10 games old.If that ball were to be less than 10 games old.It would be in better condition than that.Honestly I believe that you got ripped off by this person and I hope you get your money back providing that you went thru paypal.And also what you need to do is to warn other of this person thru trade feed back.So that some one don"t get in same mess like you went thru.
I hate ten pins but love the game of bowling with just the right ball to take them out.
