forgot to mention that this guy left me only his email and when i sent him email about the lens he just ignored my email. So far I have't got any response from this guy.
u should post the guy's nick here to let everyone know bout him
so others can beware
I feel it is both the buyer and the seller who should be responsible for the deal. I symphatise with you for what ever that has happen, no use for me to say things like "you should have find out first from others etc etc...", so just treat this as a learning lesson. I have my fair share of "not so good" experience from Buy & Sell too.
For the seller (in your case), it is nice of you to "protect" the identity of the bad seller. But since he is outright cheating you, you can just put his CS id here to inform the rest of the community. Don't need to "preserve" his image/face, cause not much of an image/face left over. If you decide not to, pls PM me his nick so that I can avoid him, thanks!
Yea I agree with the above poster.. PM me his nick too.
You don't know him well, he's not your friend, he did something dishonest, why bother to protect him? In the end, he gains even more, while you lose.

Better still, PM or post his email... then we can ask him for you (aka disturb him...)
thank you guys for support. Sorry I made a mistake just now. He rated his lens as 10, not mint. Well, I pmed him again and see whether he will response me or not. if still not, then I will post his nick in this thread. I will pm you guys his nick right now.
well just as lypklypk said, i got nothing to lose.

What type of lens you bought from this guy?
1. You read up and do your homework before buying anything not only here, but anywhere in Singapore or this world.
2. In this forum read up the guideline in buy and sell. In case you failed to read up, refer to this thread http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=8466 and especially this post http://forums.clubsnap.org/showpost....80&postcount=2
3. because you failed to do your homework and seek assistance nor make the effort to acquire the knowledge in buying second hand items, DO NOT suggest nor accuse this forum of being bias to sellers. This type of suggestion is not only false and damaging to CS. I am certainly disappointed with such remarks.
D800 | D700|16mm f2.8D|35 f1.4G|50 f1.8G|60mm F2.8D|85mm f1.4G|16-35 f4G|70-200 f2.8 VR2| SB900
... which is why the iTrader must be put back in place ? What happen to it anyway ?
EOS30D|Tamron17-50f2.8|EF50f1.8MkI|EF50f1.4|Cosina28-80f3.5-4.5Macro|Voigtlander APO125f2.5 (sold)
some people are just crooks. always check check and check. dont trust anyone.
Seriously, you should always check the equipment you bought on the spot to ensure that it is what the seller said it was. No point crying over spilled milk.
Moreover, even if the seller had sold you a good piece of stuff, u mentioned that you only looked at the lens some time later to realise that there was dust and fungus. The result could always hv been ur own maintainance of the lens.
This forum is actually much better than some others I know like Yahoo Auction. It is interactive, and people can comment on ur items. You can post more pictures. And last but not least, most buyers and sellers meet up to deal. Yahoo Auction places the onus on the buyer to ask everything tt he/she needs to ask before bidding. Thereafter, you should honour the bid that you placed.
there's not many other decent places to buy 2nd hand gear at least for singapore.
so if one fears as a newbie, perhaps its better to buy new or from shops. CS itself is a good platform, you are getting your money's worth in a free market of supply and demand in 2nd hand equipment and lenses.
This is unlike some shops that i had gone for a look, ready to bargain down the price of taking in your mint lens at a ridiculous price, and selling the similar lense used at a super unscrupulous price aka chopping people who are not familiar with used market prices.
chezburgr i can haz?
Agree. I think you should reveal this guy sooner or later. Anyway, be more careful when you buy lenses. Do some checking before paying and do some homework before buying. I understand how you feel.
