Thread: just a word of warning

    just a word of warning

    Now I'm not one to complain or have a rant. But I purchased a MTC Viper from the following thread
    Sent payment by bank transfer as requested and Monday morning the scope arrived.
    Here's my gripe clearly the scope is described as "like new" when I unpacked it the ocular bell has 3 or 4 chips down to the alloy body the flip ups have worn through the coating to the metal as has some parts of the turrets. Clearly not "like new".
    When you look at Fenlander's profile nearly all of his posts offer an item for sale but he is not a trade member. So just be cautious when buying from this chap and make sure he has described the item accurately.
    And yes I have contacted him about it via PM and he has ignored me and yes he has been online since I sent it. So he had his chance to rectify via PM's and chose not to.
    I just wish people would be honest when selling.

    That's why I insist on using PayPal.

    Does it track and hold Zero?

    Very, very dodgy.
    If you look at his started threads then you will see an identical scope with an identical photo up for sale 9 months previous to your purchase????
    Looks dodgier than a jammy dodger
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Please let me know if you hear nothing back.
