Today I asked an ebay seller this question:

Quote:
Item: 1984 Datsun Nissan 300zx window switches both doors (8004027436)

Just wondering if you know that the window switches work or
not. Smile Thanks.

His reply:

Quote:
yes

Yes??? If he is answering my question he is saying "yes, I know that the switches work or they don't but I'm not telling you".
:roll:

I guess it is my fault for wording the questions so badly. Laughing out loud

I just want my windows to go down. Sad

Surely if you're selling something on eBay it either has to work 100% as you'd expect or you'd have to state as such, wouldn't you?

Only if it is stated as "in working condition". Some items are sold as "cosmetic" as in not working.

I would've thought that you'd have to specify 'cosmetic' rather than 'in working condition' as you'd naturally assume something was going to work rather than the other way around.

You'd think that, wouldn't you? Unfortunately, you have to be suspicious of everyone on ebay. There is absolutely no recourse if you are a buyer because ebay makes money from sellers so they favor bad sellers as long as they pay their fees.
