    Default warning trick photography being employed

    I have recently received a razor I purchased in an auction The seller is Aka_Fuji99. Look at the pice below and you will see the difference in what was advertised and what was received. I am putting this up as a warning and I am not really interested in discussing it. This is a simple BEWARE.

    The top picture shows the front of the razor which I presume is what was advertised. The second picture shows the back of the razor. So unless the seller didn't list a picture of the back we can't really compare. I personally have never bought a razor without seeing several pictures from both front and back of the razor.

    You are correct. That is my error. I just went back through the add and you are right, although the shots all change they are all of the front. The front of the razor looks very similar, not quite as Dremeld as the back, but obviously Dremeled. I will add a photo later.

    Unfortunately that's usually always a first sign of warning when a seller only shows pictures from one side of the razor and tries to hide the rest. Not to mention the weird angles to hide any imperfection. One of my biggest pet peeves is a seller showing 2 pics of the razor itself but a dozen close-ups of the scales and cardboard box. Seriously?

    If I see an ad with only pictures of one side I usually assume that there is something wrong with the other that they don't want to show. Granted that isn't always the case, but sometimes its better to be safe than sorry. If you found marks on both sides when the photos show only one side, but that one side is without marks I would think something isn't quite right. Might have to open a case. I always liked the dozen pics of the boxes like the box is the most important thing. Maybe to some it is.

    If I view a listing with pics of only one side or a listing with just one pic I close it and move on to the next. If the seller isn't confident or honest enough to list more than one pic or pics of only one side I'm not interested in spending my hard earned cash (PayPal) with him/her.

    I have seen this seller before and noticed he is very tricky flipping the razor end for end which looks like it's the other side when in fact it's the same side. Tricky.

    Why would you even pull that crap when you know ebay would rule in your favor on something like that virtually every time.... Just put in a claim... He must be thick... Personally, I always use the full 12 photos and provide an hd video. I have had very nice luck on the bay treating buyers with respect and assuming they would appreciate the overabundance of data.

    That's pretty weak. Hope you got it cheap.
