Ebay Woes

ok so i bought a set of mirrors off ebay that were listed for 05-07 and i was told they were exactly as pictured the fold etc. however when i got them they looked like the stock 00-04 mirrors non folding etc. i called the guy last night and he was not in the office. called today and i swear the same guy i talked to last night i talked to today. i told him about the situation and he said that it may have been a rush job and they grabbed the wrong mirrors, he said he will issue a return slip so i can send the mirrors back and when they get them and confirm the mistake they will send me the correct mirrors. has anybody had to do this? any suggestions to get this fixed so that it doesn't become a nightmare? thanks in advance

i would've bought from a local dealership but last time i tried buying stuff even when i showed the guy the parts i needed he looked at me like i was speaking a different language

also i have a day before i can file a complaint with ebay and paypal so i figured i would try to work it out before i take the other route

well as of right now it sounds legit...long as he sends you the slip and then sends you the correct ones...try and get a tracking number

if he is indeed trying to screw you, hopefully you used paypal, in which you can get your money back

i always use paypal because of the buyer protection, and im keeping records of the all the emails as well. and i got an email about the return stuff so he took care of that through ups. i really hope this gets settled the proper way if he used the st/svt mirrors as the profile pic in the ad and only carries stock mirrors im just going to try to get my money back
