So, i was explaining Google Voice to a neighbor, and decided to get him an account. I went to ebay, found some being sold for $1.25 and bought 10. I want to give to a few other people too. Moments after i bought it i realized Google Voice is open, and there are no invites. I emailed the seller for a refund.
He sent the invites then responded. Our ebay message conversation went as follows:
Wait a second. Google Voice is open. What are the invites for?
Please refund my purchase.
google voice is NOT open. I waited 8 months for these. I already sent you 10 invites...no refund!
go to voice.google.com
create an account link is active.
google voice for everyone news article.
ill ask in the forums what to do. maybe you just didn't know.
it may be. if it is, it's the first time ever. as i said, i waited 8 months for these. i sent you 10 legit invites. i even stated in the auction, that google voice is a free service, you were paying for my wait time. sorry if you don't need one, but i still waited for them, and they are still good. i can't refund for something i've already sent. sorry.
I replied with:
That's ok, i understand.
I asked in the ebay forums what to do. If i should accept that i made a mistake or that you did. I'm planning on following their advice.
So, i made a stupid mistake. But he was selling bogus invites. I'm thinking this can go either way. I could really use some advice as to what to do. I just don't know. I don't even now who's right anymore.
