Drama Queen, no Crap Second Hand Dealers Lies.

Unread post by Colin Wonfor » Fri Mar 08, 2019 6:22 pm

I have just been dealing yet again unknowingly with a dealer in second hand Hifi. Who told me his beloved Claymore was duff, I upgraded it and sent it back insured via Hermes, Now Hermes have told me it was delivered and sign for, end of subject you may think, no way. This human then tell me his has not got it, and after a few weak starts to threaten me by txt. Oh the police have been informed as this txting is illegal.

This is going to stop, I will now not fix any Claymores and will certainly not deal with quick buck merchants that have told big lies.

And Dave Brooks said I was a Drama Queen, :Bllocks: yer but he's got plenty of money me I live on a state pension.

I suspect these few are the only one's I have caught, so beware lads, beware, or you could be a Drama Queen. :evil: :angry-screaming: :angry-fire:

David is acting like an ass. He needs to learn to be more sensitive. He could find himself in similar position if the taste for expensive accessories dies.

I have no idea who the dealer is or how trustworthy they are but there are more possible outcomes here.

A. The Hermes guy signed for it and dumped it and the dealer doesn't have it. Hermes have form for signing for stuff like this and leaving it at the delivery location.

B. The Hermes guy signed for it and dumped it and the dealer does have it, he knows he didn't actually sign for them so is willing to lie about it knowing Hermes don't actually have him on paper.

C. Someone else at the premises signed for them, mmm unlikely.

D. The Hermes guy is enjoying beautiful music on your amps and signed for it himself.

I think A and B are the most likely option and I'd wager they are equally likely.

Well, for better or worst, that just is not going to happen.

Unlikely. David’s hi-fi business is not his only source of occupational income.

By the way, karatestu (and plenty of others), he’s David Brook, not Brooks.

I don't think David would be too concerned about that Stu.

Davids a nice bloke, a bit blunt at times, he is a Yorkshire man, and has a genuine like of hi-fi. He realises that "us" DIY bods are never going to buy much (if anything) from him,but still enjoys running the Yorkshire Hi-fi club from his premises in Huddersfield for our benefit.

Judge ye not people who you don't know.

TBH, I don’t understand why Colin has brought David into the story. Was he in some way connected with the amp return? Or is it just a chance to have a pop at him while you have a platform?

I think David had a pop at Colin when he reported this on another forum. Tit for tat? Obviously he got under Colin's skin. I don't think anyone appreciated his comment on there.
