Dear Tommo,

I assure you the Topline Mouthguards I sent are the genuine product. I am an authorized retailer for the entire Topline Sports range, and source my product direct from the factory. That is why I am able to sell it for such a good price. If, however, you are not satisfied with what you have received, as per my terms and conditions, I am happy to refund the full purchase price upon the return of the unused goods.

Thanks,
Aaron

Dear Tommo,

I received your package today, and they are not the Topline Mouthguards that I sent you. I do all the dispatches myself, and what you have sent me is perhaps one of the worst rip-offs I have seen yet. Also it is clear that the mouth guards you returned have been used… extensively. Based on what you have sent me I cannot approve the refund of your money.

Aaron.

Tommo,

I’ve lodged a complaint with PayBuddy and they have frozen your payment while they investigate the transaction. Let’s leave this up to them to sort out.

Listen, you mental degenerate, I’ve had twelve of my VERY satisfied customers contact me asking about the email they received from YOU claiming I sold counterfeit goods.

This is my livelihood, you ignorant ass, how many of my other customers have you contacted? Just leave me alone and let PayBuddy sort it out.

It is safe to say I already regret the day I came across you, Tommo. So congratulations, your little scam has worked. I will release the money to you as soon as you fill in the statutory declaration I have posted to you. I have included a stamped return envelope, so all you need to do is sign it, lick it, stick it and post it back to me. It is important you use the envelope provided. Do you think you can manage that?

As soon as I have received it, I will gladly refund your money and will never do business with you again.

Aaron

Article from ‘The Weekend Post’

Bruce “Tommo” Thompson died unexpectedly on Friday night after ingesting a small quantity of highly poisonous plant toxins. He left no suicide note, and the delayed nature of his death did raise some suspicion, however this was quickly dismissed after a set of interviews with neighbors and colleagues. Bruce was universally painted as an angry, antisocial loner leading authorities to conclude Thompson had taken his own life as the last of a long list of cries for help. The family will not be holding a funeral.

Natalie has worked in everything from Air Traffic Control to Zoology, but writing has always been a constant. She is a member of Melbourne's SuperNOVA writers group and has recently released her first novel, Paragon. Scarily enough, Power Seller is based on a true story! http://www.nataliejepotts.com/

Very unique way of telling the story. I work in customer service and this was every agents dream for unruly, combative customers.

Thomas Pluck said...

Having once sold something on ebay, I loved this...

Erin Cole said...

Loved this format; it really made the piece for me. Felt like a twisted, real life encounter...Pacific Heights-ish.
Great job!
