I would like to seek opinion;
Around 3 weeks ago, I saw someone put an ad in hardwarezone, selling P4 cpu + motherboard + memory + HDD. I called up the seller, and after some negotiation, we agreed on the deal. The seller confirmed that everything are in working order and giving one week personal warranty. We met at the seller's housing block lobby.
But after I got back home and tested the items, only the memory is fine. The motherboard problem, mouse and keyboard can not functioning, while the HDD is totally die (not even detected by BIOS). The next morning, I immediately called the seller, and he promised to replaced it. The next day I called him again, and again almost everyday. He always gave many reasons, and avoiding to settle the problem. And until today, he never honor all of his promises to settle, nor he accept my suggestion for a refund.
In this kind of buy-n-sell, must a buyer take all of the risk? (in other word: can I sell a spoilt item, describing it as working and giving personal warranty without honoring it?)
Should I make a police report?
