I'm posting this here more for amusement and a bit of a warning.
I won a Mudman from a seller in Thailand (arpusara01) for a nice price (<USD$40). Initially his email about shipping told me it would be shipped to Croatia. I questioned that and he got back to me promptly stating it was a form message and he forgot to change it from the last item he sold.
Well here I am two weeks later and I get the item in the mail. No box, just an envelope with something in it that seems too flat to be a Mudman (I owned one before). I open it and it's this cheap Chinese toy watch fit maybe for a happy meal.
Interestingly it does say "shock resist" and "water resist" on it but I'm sure it's neither. I figure I'm not out a lot of money and I've already filed a claim with paypal to get it back due to fraud.
The question I'd like speculation on here is, why send anything? It's clear that he defrauded me when I get something that obviously doesn't even remotely match the auction. If he didn't send it at all he could claim it got lost in shipping or something and maybe only have to give me a partial refund and keep all the money that he gets in the mix. Might he be thinking that I'd not realize that I didn't order some plastic crap watch and never check being happy with what I got? The chances of me forgetting that I purchased a watch at all seem greater than that. On top if it he didn't get it from Thailand to the US for free and I'm sure the watch wasn't given to him for free, everything costs something right?
I think it'll just be fun to kick around some thoughts and insults about this entire situation. If y'all want to see it I can snap a picture of it too.
