Bad Seller! EvilSaint!!!
Ben Schaefer, aka- EvilSaint, is among one of the most disasterous transactions I have ever dealt with.
Over a month in a half ago we had a deal for an Alpine HU and 2 12" eD K subs for cash.
For the first two weeks while we were working details out, he was a professional and answered all my questions in a timely manner. He was polite and everything.
I send him the 2nd payment (1st payment was to reserve the products) and days turned into weeks into a month why he was too busy to ship out. Well he ships out the H/U with no wiring harness which he promised, which was another thing I had to buy. I recieve the subs a few days later crammed into a box. As soon as I open it I figured they would be destroyed. I knew it was not fedex's fault but his fault for poor packaging. I filed a claim anyways and fedex picked up a few days later. It only took fedex about three days to look at it and immediatly identify the horrid packaging.
I asked Ben back for partial money return, hoping for at least half, around $100-$125 would be respectable. His respond email says:
I've done everything required of me (even by law) regarding our transaction. I'm sorry that FedEx is a bunch of cheap assholes that obviously can't handle packages, but *you* asked me to ship them via FedEx. I'm also still willing to give you $30-40 WHEN I HAVE IT AVAILABLE, but it won't be until the middle of March. That, however, is all that i'm willing to give you.
And BTW, when you say that you're not going to "waste your time or mine with a silly threat", please don't. You have no recourse, as i've fulfilled my part of the deal, as have I. Let me know if you have any further questions.
So now its my fault because I asked him to ship Fedex, which I think we all know doesn't have nearly as many problems as UPS or USPS. Apparently shipping some broke subs is all that is required of him.
Its really just the way he presents himself. He does not care about anybody but himself. He tries to find a way to blame anybody but himself, Fedex and even me!
Just a fore-warning for you guys.
