The only mention you made of packaging was when you said..
That statement is unambiguous.That's the kind of statement I would make to let buyers know that the item in question is a "virgin" and the lucky buyer will be the first person, outside of the manufacturer's QC department, to lay hands on it.Never used or even taken out of the packaging.
Words mean things. Never means never. If you had said "only removed from packaging to test it" that would have a different meaning then what you wrote.
And that's in a thread that you titled
The only thing we know for sure is that your FS thread contained false information regarding the condition of the amp.BNIB Rockford R1000-1D
Intentional or not, the amp you sold as BNIB and "Never used or even taken out of the packaging".... was neither.
I'm not saying I trust redit. (He could very well be a scammer) I'm just saying he hasn't made statements that have been proven false. (yet)
