I bought a 20 dollar steam gift card which the seller failed to mention that it was Canadian dollars and not American. So I opened a dispute. Due to the idiotic insistence of gameflip to force seller and buyer to resolve it themselves, me and the seller talked. He said he needed me to close the case so he could refund me, because the funds were on hold on paypal. So I closed the case. But at this point, I was fed up cause he wouldn’t refund me. I offered that he merely offer me 3 dollars back in my original purchase and I will keep the Canadian steam gift card. He agreed and sent me 3 dollars and asked that I rate a positive purchase since he still had money on hold in paypal. So I rated positive. And he did send me the 3 dollars and asked me if I have used the code. I said no. I was going to do it once I get home.
I got home and and tried it and steam said it was already redeemed.
I have the whole chat log.
Now I can’t reopen a case back up. Gameflip has a stupid policy of forcing buyers and sellers to work togather just so that the seller can cheat the buyer.
I give my warning to gameflip that if they don’t get me my money back in full. I will decline on my credit card(and I am legally justified to do so, chat logs are the evidence). This legally ignores all silliness of gameflip. Because it is clearly fraudulent policy. I had my lawyer friend look at this and what the seller made me do was akin to signing a contract(rating him positive/closing the case) under false pretenses. The card was supposed to work.
I will go the credit card company, even the courts. I will go to any lengths to get my 12 dollars back(buyer sent me 3 already. This is the principle of how wrong your policies are gameflip.
I sent gameflip about 4 tickets and they don’t respond.
