    Thread moved to disputes as it seems the Kindle is not as described with cracked casing and scratched screen.

    Kandinsky, can you please update to move this forward.

    I only received the Kindle this morning.

    This is what I have PM d to the seller.

    This was your description of the Kindle I bought from you.


    This is a used Kindle 3 with keyboard and 4GB storage space. It is in excellent condition and comes from a non smoking home.

    It is far from in excellent condition.
    The screen has lots of scratches and there are 2 cracks at the bottom left and right of the screen corners running to the edge of the body. These were nt apparent in the photos posted and were nt described on the description of the Kindle. I bought one of these on another forum for the same price and it was indeed in excellent condition and the other I bought from this thread is also in excellent condition. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

    I will wait for the selllers reply but reported the post to keep mods up to date as to what is happening.

    :)

    I have offered the buyer a full refund on return of the kindle. It is just very strange to me that the new Kindles are announced and.......:D

    That is unfair. The Kindle keyboard is superior to the newer ones and I have already made an offer for another Kindle keyboard. I am not interested in buying the newer versions or Kindle fires. I already have a KK for myself and my wife and we were looking for a 3rd for my son.

    Yours was not as described in your 1st post.

    Look, you are both senior members, so throwing accusations and casting aspersions at each other does neither of you any favours.

    Pictures of the Kindle in it's current condition since being received would certainly help, but as the OP has already said he will refund then I see no further reason for you both to argue the point.

    Post on thread when the refund has been received/item returned and I will archive.

    The post was indicating I only returned the Kindle because a new cheaper kindle was released this week. This was most certainly not the case. The Kindle was not as described and that was the one and only reason I returned it. I would not have gone ahead with the purchase had it been described as having multiple scratches on the screen and 2 cracks on the bodywork.
