    How would this stand up in court though? Tricky case to prove.

    Contradicting guy. Money is not a problem yet he did not get a new monitor. Obviously money is a problem with this fella as you can see he is doing all he can to get back the refund. I think surely he knows that upholding the "integrity" by suing the seller will cost more than $170.

    The police logo in that police report looks dodgy. Check out the logo.

    the red line does not look red to me,
    faulty digi cam?

    Frankly, if money were not a problem, why would anyone pay $170 for a used 15" LCD panel these days?

    that guy is amazing.
    lodge police report within 2hours after failing to contact the seller. lodge "international" complain on website within 3hours.

    whoever that seller is, he muz have got a shock when he wakes up and on his phone this morning. who knows, could have been the seller went to bed early

    oh yeah, btw, there's a spelling error on the police report. "Afterwich" at line 4 of the report details
    and.... wht does it mean by "I had met up with an unknown male chinese whom I had known from Hardware Zone... "???
    so, does he know him or not?

    Had juz saw it.... Anyway, faking a police report with the intent to mislead and deceive is a chargeable criminal offence.

    Caveat emptor is not a rule of law - its an often used phrase which people throw around when deals go bad, saying that its the buyer's fault and that he has no recourse. Notwithstanding the fact that the buyer should be cautious, it may not always be 100% correct to say that the buyer has NO RECOURSE should a deal go bad - a lot depends on the situation and the facts of each case.

    Why not say "caveat venditor" instead? Both are just latin sayings...

    it's not a rule/law, but it makes prudent sense to check that the items purchased is in good working order before money is handed over.

    also, not all pple provide after-sales service from whatever they sell 2nd hand, so if a deal goes sour, and the seller cannot be contacted, the poor buyer just have to sit there and suck thumb....

    True true, most often what happens is that the amount is so small that even if you are in the right, it makes no sense to take up court proceedings on it. Sad but true.

    I was only writing my first post in response to your post that there's a "slim chance" becuase of caveat emptor - by slim chance I had (whether correctly or incorrectly) assumed that you were referring to the previous post by Kah Heng commenting on the trickiness to prove in court. The success of any court case would not hinge solely on caveat emptor.
