* Every effort is made to list my items on accurately, honestly & exactly as I view them when they are in my hands. Mistakes and misunderstanding do however occur, people do have different interpretations of descriptions and sometimes perceive them to be what they want them to be like & don't always look at the complete description & that is when a dispute will come up . In 99.9% of cases the matter can be amicably resolved by a simple exchange of e-mails. I am of the opinion that to revert to using 's adverse response system without first using the e-mail route or calling me is unprofessional and indicates a lack of desire to resolve any differences we may have , communication is always the key to a resolution . Lets be honest we all make mistakes and I will always go that little extra with members who do communicate in an e-mail or telephone call , rather than using neutral or adverse response. If you are new to please send me an Email & I will help you in any way possible to make this a nice experience for you ! Please look at my response & you will agree that I try very hard to do the right thing !
