Situation is getting even strange.

I've mailed him saying that his behavour is not ethical and tricky. He said that he's trading on ebay for years, had no negative feedback ever and sure, he was wrong with listing, but to correct that error, he included another lens in package which I'll like quite much. Furthermore, he stated that he's so confident in himself, that I can pay him after the item arrives!

According to my estimations, the item will arrive here next wedensday. I'm going to film all unboxing procedure, stay tuned :)

Good evening,

I have a different question. I recently won an auction for a new A77 plus 18-135 kit from a UK seller. The item arrived indeed sealed as per the listing complete with European guarantee card. My only concern is with the guarantee: all I have for a receipt/invoice is the paypal packing slip and the ebay/paypal transaction details. DO you think this will be enough for warranty purposes?

Thanks.

Honestly, it's very unlikely that someone with 100% feedback and a score of over 600 is trying to screw you.

If you're not happy, I'm sure you'll be able to negotiate a deal for either partial refund (and keep the item(s)) or a full refund and return.

It should be if you register it with Sony.

Add to that the fact that you haven't paid him yet , and he say's he has sent an extra item with it , and your only to pay AFTER you get it and are happy .
He would seem to be an honest trader with integrity , if your not happy with what you receive , organise a return or renegotiate for the lens that you do want.

So as far as tracking was updated with real shipping info (item dispateched to sort facility, etc.) I've sent the money. I'm not beggar or charity asker in any ways.

A minor point, but if you use paypal you cannot rely on section 75 credit-card protection against seller misconduct because paypal counts as an indirect transaction. More info on: Martin's money website.
