Oy vey.

I feel a great disappointment when I receive a $30 torch that has scratches in the anodizing, or other shipping marks.

I cannot imagine how gutted you feel after dropping a ton on that.

Start Ebay dispute ASAP.
Also, did the package have visible damage when you signed for it? If it did, you shouldnt have signed in the first place.

Hopefully you’ll come out on top. Ebay does tend to come down on the side of the buyer.

Good luck.

Are those different colors?^^

Let me guess… UPS was the carrier, they made no effort to reject the senders pack-job and the sender didn’t ship the OEM box in an over-pack container with sufficient padding?

Items will get thrown and jostled around in transit, regardless of shipping carrier. Its the carriers responsibility to scrutinize the senders pack-job and reject any that are poorly equipped for the journey. Cant tell you how many damaged goods I have received via UPS, where neither they nor the sender adequately packed the item.

+1, I’m quite sure it was shipping carrier fault, they screwed it |( (unless the box wasn’t damaged, then —> sellers fault)

So they must be repackaged? Otherwise, it seems the manufacturer would have sufficient protection for those obviously delicate corners.

Hard to classify it as a con unless the seller sent it damaged and was hoping to pin the blame on the carrier. However, that’s a risky move, even for a scammer. Either way you got screwed, whether it be from a shady seller or insufficient packing. I feel your frustration, especially after waiting so long.

There is no need for goods to ne poorly handled during shipping, definitely a problem with the shipping Co.
