Ive bought too with no problems. their returns are not too friendly but then again if you know what you need before you order then it seems to save hassle.

there are better sellers out there though

Why on earth should the seller pay for your labour costs? That is consequencial losses and so your responsibility not his.

No I don't work for them.

So have I got this straight?

You order the filter and it is wrong.
You send it back for a refund?? Thats all fine and normal so long as they refund and you've sent if back in a sellable condition.

Are you also trying to get them to pay for another filter that you have source seperately? If so then that is unreasonable.

Good god he has alot of negative rep for a big seller.

If its the wrong part, its the sellers fault for supplying it.
If you are out of pocket due to His mistake, dispute it with Ebay.

This guy looks like a cowboy seller, and I'm glad you pointed him out. By the looks of things he waits ages to reply to most people in the hope they forget about it. He has more neg rep than I have ever seen from any large scale Ebay seller.

Forget the seller for a moment. (although 99.6% positive isn't usually a cause to worry to be honest).

Are you trying to get the seller to pay for consequential losses because he has sent the wrong filter?

Has the seller refused to refund the original (incorrect) filter?

Could you answer the direct questions above.

If he is refusing to refund the original filter then yes he should be slated. If not and you are trying to get him to pay for consequential losses I'm afraid you are the one who is being unreasonable not him.

99.6% positive feedback is pretty reasonable considering the volume of feeback he has. OK there are better out there but if you are making unreasonable requests and he is refusing I can understand why.

I'm sorry,there are those who sometimes just can't see the wood for the trees.Your defense of this seller is to me,worrying.Any matter of law or costs or blame or whatever is no longer in my interests to expand upon.However,I suggest that all members should remember this seller and READ THE FEEDBACK

Under UK law he has to provide a refund for the incorrectly supplied item.

He is under NO obligation to pay for consequential losses.

I know enough about the law to know when someone is trying it on and won't get very far.

I notice you are still avoiding my original questions...........

To be fair, you haven't given much info at all on the matter.

If he has refunded the item and any postage costs due to his mistake, then thats him done. He doesn't have to do anything else.
If you are trying to claim a labour charge from the mechanic you hired who couldn't do the work due to the incorrect part, thats a grey area. But your lack of response to ETV's questions really isn't helping anyone.

Update all you like and type as many things is CAPS as you want too. You still haven't answered my questions which makes it look like you have something to hide.

If, as I suspect, you are trying to claim for consequential losses then good luck as no court in the UK will uphold your claim. Please feedback on your results of trying!

I agree that people should read feedback before buying from anyone. And even on here I also suggest people do the same before choosing who to take advice from. Its a shame the rep system was abandonned as it showed who could really be trusted.

People can choose to buy from mrsilicone or not buy, and people should read the feedback before buying I don't disagree.

Sellers make mistakes and it isn't always their fault. They should rectify as quickly and easily as possible but you can't expect the seller to foot the bill for costs they haven't been responsible for such as you sourcing other parts.
