    Guys beware of the following on ebay if bidding on cheap DVD-Audio discs example Missy Elliott. He is really a shoddy person. All itmes are overcharged for postage. Fair enough he states that but he says costs also range from 10-40% for packaging. This is bull, he sends everything in a brown paper envelope, no packaging al all. DVD-audio cases arrive broken, and these aren't like cd or dvd cases you can replace.

    his ebay Seller User ID is ali110uk
    his email address is ali1_ebay@hotmail.com

    Please beware for the future, especially coming upto Christmas. You don't need to be disappointed. I know other members have mentiond the cheap dvd-audio and sacd on ebay recently.

    Regards

    Did he offer to exchange the item? I think he did!!! That is, if you bothered to ask him - and if you didn't ask then all fool you.
    There are plenty of satisfied customers, and although I don't agree with his postal charges he makes his policy perfectly clear and is a way of reducing ebay charges.

    Moving to DVD Talk.

    Also I take it your are Ebay Member: aibgl

    I can't see how you can complain when the price was just £0.99 + £1.99 shipping.

    Plus he gave you the chance to replace it. Please don't use this forum to air your grievances with other Ebay members.

    To all,

    yes that is my ebay id, but i don't live in britain and he charged 3.50 for postage. normally this would be 2.00 from ebayers for cd's or dvd's but i was and still am prepared to pay that. I posted so as to make other aware that there goods would arrived damaged and that this ali wouldn't really give a s**t how it arrived. He did offer to exchange if it i sent it back and he'd send another on. But as it took him nearly a week to send it in the first place, i couldn't be bothered to wait and see if he would. I said to him that and then he started to insult me by email and then left negative feedback. I merely posted to make other aware that he is CHEAP for a reason. A padded envolpe can be got for about 30p but he just sent it in a brown envelope with no backing cards around it so he could make another pound or 2 from the postage. Just beware you have been warned.
