    hmm try not to link the guy in HWZ & CS together, althou it really seem like a coincidence...

    really felt sorry for you, i mean, if this is such a case, you have your yahoo bidding record, your conversation log (sms or verbal or email) den with the shop's invoice & such, file a report against bad trader's act. forget which business law, its clearly misrepresentation.

    When I read it yesterday, I really wanted to ask, why then did you still pay the difference. I would have voided the transaction and threatened to make a din if the money was not returned.

    The harm is done and it's too late to do anything, just let it go and go out to shoot more.

    Such shops loves free advertising on HWZ..... and with such transactions i would rather not buy.... but it's abit too late, u've paid for ur good....

    One Thing different, ppl on CS are more real* (up till now those i've dealt) than those on HWZ.

    I think there has been a misunderstanding here and I hope to clear it.

    I was the one who posted the ad for my friend to sell the A95 and I am not Bryan. The camera belongs to Bryan and not me.

    The scenario told by Sinori was correct. The set was supposed to be sold to you at $580 and NO GST was supposed to be included because the sale had nothing to do with the shop. I do not know who Leonard is but he was under the impression that Sinori was recommended by Bryan to buy from his shop. That was why an invoice was opened with GST included. The set that was supposed to be sold had no invoice (lucky draw got invoice with it?). To clear my name, I have asked Bryan to refund you the GST amount of $29 and you will keep that set as it is.

    I am an active member in CS and would definitely not try to cheat in here.
    The yahoo auction post was also put up by me for my friend in hope to sell the camera sooner. (No moderator restrictions on this right?)

    I hope sinori would contact me asap for me to return the $29 to him and to clear my name.

    Sinori should have contacted Bryan on the spot when a discrepancy arose. Maybe he wouldn't have felt cheated. Now my integrity is involved.

    Lesson learnt: Never help friends to sell things online.

    A happy ending to clear the dispute.

    Let me help you, sinori.

    You can do it yourself, on top, go to Thread Tool, click on it, then click close thread, that all.
