In February of 2019 I purchased two records from a seller on Discogs who advertised them as both playing great. Once I got the records I couldn't even get through the first track on side 1 and 2 of one of the records because it had so many skips and jumps. The mistake I made was for the first time in my life I used a credit card for paying opposed to my usual 16 years of using PayPal. ( I believe PayPal would have paid for the return shipping.)

It's been very, very stressful for me since I first let Discogs know of this situation. There's absolutely no backing whatsoever from Discogs and they fully side with the seller. In other words a seller can advertise whatever they want, lie about it and when you, the buyer purchase an item based on what you have read from the seller's description you get something that's complete crap. Then you become a victim and the seller is praised for their lies.

Sure, the seller said he would refund the records once he received them, but I why should I have to pay for shipping them back.

I fully disagree with this! I've purchased something with the understanding that I'm going to get what I've read in the description. If that is very incorrect, I don't see why I should be responsible for paying for shipping on something that was advertised very falsely to begin with.

I got nowhere with Discogs on this matter. I have since filed a complaint with the Attorney General of Oregon.

Tip for consumers: I would suggest paying with PayPal and if you get into any problems don't bother with Discogs' customer service because it's a complete waste of time from my personal experience!




In my opinion the biggest difference between eBay and Amazon is that with eBay you can tell the "truth" about your experience in their feedback system.

With Amazon whenever you tell the truth this is what you get.

"Thank you for submitting a customer review on Amazon. After carefully reviewing your submission, your review could not be posted to the website. While we appreciate your time and comments, reviews must adhere to the following guidelines."

So to me Amazon is a complete farce and they hide behind their lies, so that they look better!
