Ebay Justice Delayed, Undeniable

Amir says, "I'm one hot playa!"

If you've ever had an unfortunate incident with an auction site or online classified, you'll love this story (via Tim Blair) of a buyer who had to wait two months to receive his misrepresented purchase.

However, the computer- which was not only underspecified but broken- still had a hard drive that the buyer was able to mine for the personals and photos of the seller, one Amir Massoud Tofangsazan who apparently has a fetish for cell phone pics of ladies' legs on public transport and a highly inflated CV.

No court resolution would amount to the kind of payback spanking administered in The Broken Laptop I Sold on eBay (not totally work-safe, but blacked-out nethers) set up by our hero, the intrepid buyer who refused to be victimized.
