This is kind of irrelevant now I suppose because ebay have rejected all my complaints/appeals etc, but just interested to know people's opinions of whether I am being unreasonable.
I bought an airbed which was classified as 'new without tags' - I read as far in the description as it saying the item had been checked and was in good condition. Being new I assumed there would be no issues.
Further down in the description, it says 'the item is damaged and has a hole in it' - I didn't notice this.
Now, I guess lots of you will say it's my fault for not reading the full description (which it sort of is), but should you be able to call something new when it's got a fault (and a pretty serious one for an airbed). It wasn't mentioned in the item title like people often do (e.g. 'for spares or repair').
I could return the item, but postage when I bought it was £7.99 which I won't get back, plus I'd have to pay postage to send it back again. I suggested to the seller that he might like to make some contribution, seeing as his ad was a little misleading, but he was having none of it.
The really sneaky part is that as it was a continuous listing with several of the same item available - he has now changed the category to 'new with defects', and ebay are seemingly too stupid to realise or don't care that that isn't what it was classified as when I bought it.
I know we're not talking much money at all here - but I still feel slightly aggrieved.
Any right to be or all my own fault?
