Forum purchase problem, what would you do?!?!
paypal gift unfortunately.
Oh FFS. Sorry…but…oh for FFS.
Seems he sold yet another pair that didn’t suit his face
Linked in my post on previous page, mate. Sold the same, or similar, 3 times in last 12 months-ish. Not including if anyone took him up on his replies to their wanted posts.Posted 4 years agorazorrazooMember

Would have expected someone with his job to have a pretty good moral compass so perhaps this is all a big misunderstanding.

Just because someone works at a school does not guarantee a moral compass. Totally different situation but Ian Huntley springs to mind.Posted 4 years agobencooperMember
What a useless article that is. “A small number of unscrupulous local bike shops”? Where – in the UK, in the World, where? Evidence? Load of scaremongering tosh – a LBS pretending to be a dealer for something they’re not would get shut down sharpish, and equally any shop passing off fake goods as genuine when they are a dealer would be in big trouble.Posted 4 years agofalkirk-markMember
OP you can suck it up and learn from your mistake. You bought a pair of sunglasses from someone who almost exlusively posts in the classifieds (with the exception of asking where to buy knockoff oakleys) Ignored the advice of a trusted forum member and then paid by a means that offered you no protection whatsoever. Sorry to be harsh but if you do not learn from this then you will gain nothing whatsoever from this situation. HTHPosted 4 years ago
Just sent him this, don’t expect a reply though;
You may be interested to read this: http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/forum-purchase-problem-what-would-you-do/page/2.
Seeing as your details are splashed all over it, perhaps, and to give you the benefit of the doubt it would be good that if this were a mistake you might clear it up before your name is tarnished any more than it has been. Perhaps an explanation is due in the thread or by to this email which I’ll happily post on your behalf.
However, should it turn out that you have indeed deceived myself and one other by selling us fake Oakley sunglasses, it again may be in your favor to make a gesture relative to their real value to both me and the original poster. Speaking for myself there is a £70 difference between what I paid you, and what typically fake oakleys are selling for on ebay. I’d be happy to give you a paypal address for you to refund me the difference.
In my view, this would present the appropriate moral fibre given the situation and with your apparent position of employment taken into account.
I look forward to your reply.Posted 4 years agoioloMember
Why are you asking for only 70 pounds? You are happy to have fakes?Posted 4 years ago
That kind of defeats the object of your post complaining they are not original.
Get a full refund and send them back and report this guy to Oakley.
If you really want genuine Oakleys go into the nearest dealer and buy some.bikebouyMember
You do know that there are genuine Oakley “seconds” shops don’t you?Posted 4 years ago
Theres one in Portsmouth at Gunwharf Quays and I bought a pair from them, ex display two lenses (g’teed new replacements) frames had been in display cabinets, with a set of old lenses in, cost £75.00.
I’d go to one of these shops before aproaching anyone selling s/h shades on here.
While I’m happy to admit I didn’t make the best purchasing decision in the world, pointing out the idiocy time and time again perhaps isn’t necessary.
Lets remember that regardless of my own naivity, there’s an alleged deceptive bording on daylight robbery thats taken place.Posted 4 years agoJamieMember
On another note, Paypal gift…
I know I shouldn’t, but it was at that point I lost a lot of my righteous indignation at the situation.
I know it’s possibly kicking a man when he is down, but a buyer has to accept a certain amount of responsibility to make sure they have safeguards in place.
It’s not as if there are not blatant warnings on every topic in the classifieds warning users against PP gift. It’s almost tantamount to popping your old chap in a beehive. People are telling you not to do it, there isn’t no benefit to doing it, several others have done it and come off badly….and yet they dip it in honey and have at it.
To address the Oliphant in the room, this obviously doesn’t excuse any alleged wrongdoing by the seller. It’s just these PP Gift incidents do make such scams both possible and pervasive.Posted 4 years agobrassneckSubscriber

So if you have a relative you get them cheap for you can you explain this post to us then please?Posted 4 years agojfletchMember
I know if I sell samples or other gear that I get cheap from work (a major retailer) on eBay, on here or via any other route then I would be swiftly fired. That would include passing them on via a relative.
Mr Oliphant – I wonder if S&R would like to hear about your little side line in Oakleys or if they are totally happy with the situation? Does your relative who works for S&R like their job.
Or are the made up. A quick email to S&R from the OP claiming that he got some knock-off Oakleys which appear to have come from a leak in their supply chain would have them investigating very quickly and they would soon find out if a) your relative has broken their policy and will lose their job or b) your story is bollox and they would inform the police that someone is passing of knock offs as something they got from them.
Giving the OP his money back and dissapearing seems like a tempting option now doesn’t it. Even if they are genuine.Posted 4 years ago
