    i bought it off of ebay, along with Sting, Strider's ranger sword, and Hadafang. it was insured for 4.50, and shipped through FedeX...but the tip of Narsil is bent, from shipping.

    i know it was through shipping, because the 4 swords came in 4 boxes, all in one box...the box with Narsil and the huge box was poked through from Narsil...i e-mailed the guy about 5 times and he has not responded once...so...what should I do? :(

    Do you still have the link to the auction? If you have,, check if the auction
    has buyer protection offered, read more here:

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/confidence/purchase-protection.html

    If your auction has it, then contact eBay and ask them what you should do.
    If your auction doesn't have it, read about standard purchase protection, and contact
    eBay about that. I would also talk with eBay about this seller's lack of responsability
    and try to get him banned.

    Hope this helps :)

    it does...i almost forgot about this thread : )

    i contacted eBay, and they said that although the sword was insured, that i would not be able to get another one :mad:

    but, they assured me that the user has been banned, and they are sorry for the inconvenience :moon1:

    ah well...i might be able to hammer it back into alignment if I really wanted to

    I'd be careful if I were you guys. The rules clearly stipulate that you can't mention certain sites on this forum. You may want to check them out. People have been warned in the past about this, and it's led to nothing but trouble for them. If I were you, I'd edit my post right now, and take out the name of the above mentioned sites with my appologies for ignoorance.

    Jeremiah.l.burns:

    Boomerang created the 'Rants & Scams' forum so that people would have a place to
    discuss eBay problems. It's only allowed to talk about eBay in this forum, not anywhere else...

    You're absolutely right. My mistake. I hadn't looked at the new rules this month. Thanks.


    Just didn't want to see anyone get booted for a stupid reason. But thanks for the info!! :)
