Yesterday I ordered a Milwaukee circular saw on Ebay from a guy with a record of just three transactions, the item was 75% of the price of the same at screwfix so I thought why not.
Early today the saw arrived in new condition via parcel force. The weird thing was that the item was shipped direct from Screwfix to me. First up I thought I that I had had a senior moment because I had been looking at the item on the screwfix site and might have ordered from two vendors. I double checked my accounts and found it was good news I had definitely only ordered one saw.
What I found was that the Ebay supplier had arranged for the item to be sent to me direct from Screwfix it cost him (or possibly some one unknowningly via a hacked card?) 25% more than I paid.
Screw fix help desk advised me to contact the supplier direct to check what was doing on - but clearly something is wrong there and frankly I am reluctant to contact the seller. I am not the victim of fraud (as far as I know) but in this case but someone may well be - Is there a way I can inform Ebay of my concern or should I ignore it ?
