So I bought an undergravel filter with a powerhead for my little ten gallon aqarium off of ebay last week. I recieved it today. The packaging was terrible, and he didn't include the powerhead! Plus, this guy had the gall to enclose a note that said "This set just has 1 riser tube, but that's all you need for your tank." I paid this jerk $25.00 for this item, and the only reason I bought it from him is because it said it INCLUDED the powerhead! I could have went to petco and picked up the filter part for $6.00. There is no way I would have spent $25.00 for that crappy little piece of plastic he sent me. I sent him a nice note which said that I recieved the item, but the powerhead was missing. I told him that I REALLY NEED the powerhead. I wasn't rude at all. So we will see if he even writes back. This is my first bad ebay experience. If he doesn't respond, should I report him to ebay for false advertising? I made sure that my email was very polite, because if I end up reporting him, I'm pretty sure ebay will want copies of my emails. I haven't left him feedback yet, I've never left anyone a negative feedback before. I hate confrontation, but I really feel like I was screwed. It's only $25.00, but still! I guess you live and you learn.
