In September I tried to buy a QSC PLX3002 off Ebay from "musicgoods" (they have changed their name to "gear-trader" since then - their website is www.muzeekworld.com). The gave me the runaround for a month (they never had the amps, and kept giving me crap about bad shipments from QSC, while a little birdie told me that they weren't ordering squat from QSC), and I finally canceled and left bad feedback. I just noticed that last month they got vindictive and gave me false negative feedback. The *u(%ers. So, for my amusement, your torture, and the possible benefit to anyone else out there who might order from the jerks, I've compiled the whole fiasco into a timeline of events. Enjoy. PS the spelling errors aren't mine. . . ------------- Friday 9/13/2002 10:40 PM I'm the high bidder for a QSC PLX3002 from seller "musicgoods" on Ebay. I send a "Request Payment Information" email to find out how much shipping will be. Saturday 9/14 5:56 PM I receive this email from musicgoods: I send this in reply: Sunday 9/15 5:13 PM I get this email: I reply: 6:20 PM I get this back: And I reply: 6:44 PM this comes in: And my reply: Monday 9/16 My journal entry: I didn't mention, but they also told me on the phone they'd email me a tracking # when it shipped (in a couple of days) Friday 9/20 Haven't heard anything, so I send this email: Monday 9/23 I get this email: Friday 9/27 I have heard nothing since, and send: Monday 9/30 Still no word. I send Journal entry: Tuesday 10/1 I get this email: I call, and leave a message asking exactly when the next shipment will come in. I get this email: Meaning Thursday 10/10. Saturday 10/12 Journal entry: When this was written I had not heard back from them. I wrote the following: Tuesday 10/15 Heard nothing from them. I call and cancel my order. They refund my money. What I haven't mentioned, so far, is that early on in this ordeal I discovered that "Muzeekworld's" QSC suppliers had been shut down for some questionable business practices. So first, they are not an authorized QSC dealer. Second, it seems increasingly likely that I am being given the runaround for some reason or another. Either way, I was completely fed up with the whole thing. They sold something like five other QSC amplifiers in other auctions at the same time as mine. So far, 30 days later, none of the high bidders has left feedback yet. On 10/15 I leave the following feedback for them on Ebay (note that, they have since changed their Ebay account name from "musicgoods" to "gear-trader"): I filed a complaint with Ebay. However, as I got my money back they don't care. I thought the whole thing was behind me, but today I noticed the following in my feedback profile (from "gear-trader", left on 11/18/2002): To which I responded: The last bit is a reference to this feedback left for "gear-trader" by "foamicon" on 11/27: "foamicon" obviously had more patience than me. I feel sorry for them. I still wonder what's going on with the other high bidders. Musicgoods/muzeekworld/musiciansstore.net/gear-trader haven't tried to sell any more QSC amps since then.
