I’m no dummy

And I really don’t like it when people try to treat me as such.

I bought a ‘replacement battery charger’ for my Canon 7D. I looked carefully at the photos posted and noted it was a Genuine Canon product.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the parcel, and not only found no cord for the charger, the charger rattled… and then when I looked at the back of it, I noticed it wasn’t the same one I had seen on seller site. It was Counterfeit Canon product, flimsy, and poorly made. I said so to the seller. This is his reply and reason for canceling the sale’ and my rebuttal.

This case has been opened by the seller with the following reason: Other.
Additional information provided by the seller: Hi,

It is a replacement charger as I described in my listing.

I think it may be damaged during transportation. That is why it has rattle sound. Anyway, refund was made in full via paypal

Please agree to cancel this transaction.

Best regards,

Item was Counterfeit Canon product. Not only that, what good is a battery charger without the cord, and with parts rattling around inside of it. Disappointed in the shell game of selling from “Adelaide” but not selling Genuine Canon product.

If you try to screw me, you should at least kiss me first, or maybe dinner and a movie. I did get my money back.
