Beware of Fastmemoryman on Ebay ( A.K.A. Emartbuy )
This is a warning to all of those who are interested or wants to buy
from this seller.
The items he sell are refurbished parts that have previously been
faulty - they are NOT new!
I recently purchased a 1GB PC2700 DDR333 memory from this guy and not only did two
of the data lines on the PCB have a short making it in operable on my
laptop, it was shipped in a non-antistatic plastic wrapper with what
appears to be a glue like substance smeared across one of the IC chips
on the PCB.
The worst thing of all is that I was told that if I wanted a refund I'll have to return it within 14 days of receiving it (the
item took 15 days to be shipped to me!) + I'll have to pay for
postage (there and back) + lose 15% of purchase cost to "restocking fee" (more like 15% for them to buy another faulty part and con another unsuspecting ebayer!). That is down right unfair and not ethical!
You may be lured in by the fact of number of postive feedback this guy
has (as I was) but the fact of the matter is that he has had over 2000
negative complaints. Moral of the story is not only do you not buy
from Fastmemoryman but be sure to inspect the number of negative
feedbacks of a any seller before commiting to a purchase (regardless
of the number of postive feedbacks).
I hope this will prevent other buyers from falling into the same trap
as I did
PS. Raise a dispute with paypal against this guy to no avail so don't think you'll be safe paying with Paypal either!
