Sell It Here Buy It Here Inc Complaint - Damaged Bass Clarinet

Review by Anonymous on 2007-07-19
ELKHART, INDIANA -- I purchased a bass clarinet from sell here buy here inc of indiana via EBAY. After several weeks, apparently owing to a snowboard accident I eventually received the instrument very badly damaged (and insufficiently packaged) which requires over $2300 to repair. I also paid for insurance but have received nothing at all from the seller to confirm that insurance was actually put in place.

I have sent many tens of emails and phoned the seller almost daily, despite living in France. I even did a check on the owner of this company DANA LOCKWOOD, which cost further dollars, and sent him a telegram to his home address. Eventually he answered a call to his home, not having acknowledged the telegram! but has yet to send me the insurance information.

Due to the delays, I have missed the 60 day deadline with EBAY and therefore cannot even make a complaint on their feedback forum.
So this guy suckers people into buying damaged goods on ebay and does not reply to emails or phone calls.

I am particularly annoyed as it appears that I have no comeback against this dealer of woe.
