WTB - Philips Fidelio L1 (Lesson Learned)
Will Ship To: Anywhere
[Edit - Nov 25, 2013]
I just want to post this information about a lesson learned. I know this is not the right place, but I think this is a way to reach the most members on Head-fi.
I posted the below Wanted ads on Nov 9th, 2013. I was looking for a pair of Fidelio L1. Shortly after the ads went online, a member 'iemguy66' contacted me and said he had a pair of L1 for sale. The price he agreed to was real attractive, he also sent me the photo of the phones. So I never had a doubt and sent him the money through PayPal the same day.
It has been 3 weeks now and I have not received the item. I just checked on his profile and found he has been banned by Head-fi. It was unfortunate that my purchase probably just took place right before he was banned. So I am not sure if I could ever get my money back.
I don't know if I am against any Head-fi policy by posting this information. But I just want everyone to be aware that those scammers are out there. I know Head-fi has strongly recommended not to send payments by gifts. There is a reason for that. I learned my hard lesson. I will never use gift payment again, I would rather pay the fees.
I have filed a complaint through PayPal. But I am not holding my hope high.
I am interested in a pair of Philips Fidelio L1 in good condition. If you have a pair that you are willing to part with please let me know. I am located in Houston Texas.
