    Unhappy Damaged AT800 DE, what now?

    I am probably the most pissed off I have ever been. A few of you who have read my threads and know that I purchased a supposedly fake AT800 DE off of ebay. I got a notice from the post office to pick it up yesterday. Today I went to the postal office to pick it up. During the drive back to school for badminton practice where I would discuss with other members the authenticity of the racquet, I was opening the package. The next few moments consisted of me filling the car with profanities. The racquet was indeed fake, the paint job was all wrong, PLUS!, the racquet was broken at the shaft. I am in a predicament, I have no idea what to do. I can't certainly get a refund because the racquet is broken. I can't get money from the courier company because apparently there is no insurance. In fact, I dont have a clue in the world what to do right now. So overview of my crap ass day. I bought a racquet that was fake and damaged with no insurance and i'm screwed. Can anyone help me?

    u can ask for the seller to send u a new one if he's kind enough.
    it depends on how much he valued his account and how much he made off ya.
    if broken in transit, it's really the carrier's fault but u didnt bot insurance so your case is quite hopeless against the carrier

    well, look on the bright side:

    you'd feel a whole lot worse if your racket was real, right? =)

    oh that sucks big ... anyways ... my friends and I bought 3 rackets of ebay MP99, 800 OF and 800 DE. Obviously they were fake since we pay like ... 1/3 of the price. It's been a few months now and so far ... the 800 DE is holding up fine, the MP99 cracked a bit at the cone under stress but i contained that with electric tape lol. I can't say too much about the 800 OF because i didn't get to use it much... i broke the strings during the first 45 min that i play with it lol. Anyways ... ours look amazing ... just like the real thing. Guess you just got it from a bad dealer
