Reply to socrateaser's Post: Would it be a safer bet to cash the checks, then mention that I would be issuing a chargeback for the remaining balance?
I would like to document something in writing by sending him an email.
This is what I plan to write -- I will definitel be paying you the amount stated! Sorry for the extensive response. The amounts have been replaced with $xxx and the name of goods has been replaced with "items". also the company I am referring to was replaced with "Company A"
Thanks so much for your help!
Mr ... :
I just received the check in the mail, but there is a huge problem. Is this the first installment of my refund?
The total amount requested for the refund was ---
$xxx x 6,650 items
$xxx x 1550 items.
$xxx Total Requested for Refund.
I received a check for $xxx. I am curious as to when I will be receiving the other $xxx? This was a generous offer on my part becuase I did not include the shipping fees from you sending these to me, nor did I include the google checkout fees or the APR that was tacked on my account from my AMEX credit card (9.99% broken out daily over the past 30 days equals over $100).
Perhaps I am just better off issuing a chargeback in the full amount to my credit cards?
From my google checkout invoices --
$xxx x 6,650 items = $xxx
$xxx x 1550 items = $xxx
$xxx x Total should have been refunded.
Plus, this does not account for me having to hire an attorney because of this situation and I left this out of the picture entirely. --- hired an attorney to see what to do when the manufacturer contacted me ---
You asked me not to mention your name to "Company A" which really sounds shady to me, but I left your name out of the situation from the beginning becuase I thought you would handle this as a business
man. We have done business together for over a year now and I thought you would handle this amicably. From the beginning you told me that I would make good money on these on ebay and you never once asked if I was an authorized dealer. You mentioned on the phone to keep your name out of this because you were worried about losing your license with "Company A"? I did not do anything wrong in this situation. Why would you be worried if you did not do anything wrong? As a buyer I was not in the wrong, you were by selling these cards to me. You can not charge me a restocking fee for something that was in your fault.
You also told me that 500 additional items were not included which is 100% not true. There were 500 items missing from the original package you sent me and 15 missing pins which I paid for. I did the calculations manually myself to account for the weight of the packages that I sent you and minus the boxes weight, there would be exactly 6,150 items (this was minus the 500 items you forgot to include with the original shipments). I counted out those items with my brother -- he counted them, then I counted them to assure something like this would not happen and I wrote down the items that were included in each box -- 1,150 items in total (I included note of this in each box). The 2 other boxes were never opened and you were quoted as saying they definitely have 2,500 items in each box.
Please let me know what you plan to do about the other $xxx as initially proposed.
