Thought I would share my dealings with this bloke over the last week. I have been looking for a S&B 8x56 for a while now and last weekend one appeared on *ebay 390601876298 . The listing included the sellers mobile number so I sent him a txt with an offer. My offer was excepted and was told once funds received he would end the auction and post, the sellers bank details where sent via txt to do a bank transfer.
So a couple of days later when I asked if he had received the funds as the scope was still listed he said yes but left the listing as he had 2 identical scopes.
Well the scope arrived today or should I say a scope arrived today. The scope advertised was supposed to be in very good condition and 12 months old, the one I received had a couple of sets of ring marks as well as other marks on the body and had a serial number starting with 302*** so is well over 7 years old as I have another starting 308*** made in 2006. When I put this to him i got the reply "send it back then" So now what do I do?
Send it back to a dishonest person and chance I will end up with no scope a and no refund or keep it and chalk it up to experience.
Well I have decided that I would only return it IF he returns my cash first, after all I sent him cash before receiving goods. That got no reply so I thought I would share my dealings with him in case any one else from the shooting communality should come across him.
So should you come across seller vercs45 or if you have dealings with Simon Wilkins from Wadebridge in Cornwall be cautious as he obviously has no morels. I believe he also is MD of Cornish Game http://cornishgame.co.uk/index.php, I cant comment on how he conducts he business from here as I have had no dealings with his company. But I would not do any business with him full stop, dishonest and untrustworthy.
Now the internet is a big place and I am sure someone on here will no this bloke personally and say the sun shine out of his **se. If so maybe he will think twice before conning someone else.
