IMO youre lucky you got anything. I had to fight to get my refund on something that he didnt ship (the link to my problem was posted on page 1 or 2). I stand behind everything I said in my post. He seemed like an honest guy both via phone, pm and email. My problem was the lack of communication and shady excuses.
You at least are getting a straight answer with him saying he will NOT refund your money.
IMO you were mis-lead, I cant decide if it is his fault for wording his ad the way he did, or yours for not drilling him with questions before you bought. I believe we are all enthousiasts here and should all be making an honest effort to help each other out and not sell products with mis-leading descriptions, so for that I blame Golan.
I believe since this system is "such a good deal" at a grand shipped that the purchase price minus shipping should be refunded once the system is shipped back to Golan.
As I said in my post, my problem with Golan was resolved, but it was a headache and I really did not think I was going to get my money back at all. I researched him a little on the boards before I bought and given his previous track record I was comfortable buying from him.
Looks like this is the third person he has had shady dealings with: the OP, the guy who posted about the KW V1 and myself. My advise to Golan is to stop selling things on here, its not going well for you. Your two sets of wheels will likely not sell, not after this post and the others out there.
And my advise to anyone looking to buy from him. If it needs to be shipped, do not buy. If you can pick it up, knock yourself out.
Thats just my opinion, its not meant to offend anyone, just an expression of what I thought when my buddy messaged me saying someone else was ripped off by "imballintoday"
Im not willing to give a refund because a refund is not deserved. You had the right to a refund and I gave you one. If I was a "scammer" I would have NEVER given you one but I did. The shipping to get you the wheel was too much and paypal messed up the first refund as you saw I requested one. I cannot be more clear that a refund here is not necessary at all. I cannot believe how many gullible people there are here. Everyone believes everything they hear its pretty funny. Im gonna go now and go drive my Ferrari on the track I have in my backyard. You guys should believe that too.
And Edit: Theres a reason why BOTH of my wheel threads now say LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. I don't want to have to deal with whiners. Come take a look at them, if you like them fine, if you don't thats cool. My shipping days are OVER.
