That reminds me, has RealMan refunded that money yet?
No, RealMan point blank refuses to accept anything was wrong with his advert or handling of it. Complete cock-end IMO in almost every aspect of the sale.
I should have been more vigilant in asking for pics and making sure they were as advertised but have had nothing but good experiences of the classifieds in the 8/9 years I've used the forum (other than a known douche who ripped me off 6/7 years ago) so fell into the security trap.
What to do next? Back to basics when buying - pics every time, stand up for yourself as a buyer and don't pay more than you think its worth. Formal or informal, I think a feedback mechanism would be good.
The galling aspect is the sheer arrogance of the boy. He's young and naiive so either he'll learn, or if he carries on like this he'll get massively dumped on at some point.
