    Beste Leen1950,

    Omdat het object beschadigingen had opgelopen kon ik het niet verzenden aan u. Ik heb u dat correct uitgelegd en u de dag erop direct 30 keer uw aankoopbedrag ter compensatie overgemaakt naar uw bankrekening. Desondanks bent u nog steeds niet "blij".

    Een rendement van 300 % is niet slecht in 1 dag.... U had dan ook een positieve review kunnen geven omdat ik u uiterst correct en integer tegemoet ben gekomen.

    Het spijt me dan ook dat ik u niet tevreden heb kunnen stellen met mijn compensatie.

    Het is echter uw pad. Op Google view en de KvK zag ik echter dat het u goed gaat. Daarom verbaast het mij ook dat u "Nog steeds niet "blij" was.

    Ik wens u veel succes op uw gekozen pad.

    Amor Fati
