    Na een week wachten, eindelijk aangekomen.
    Keurig en stabiel verpakt en bijna geheel volgens opgave. (Later van bouwjaar.)
    Ik ben er toch blij mee.

    Item arrived damaged; seller would not help, showed no sympathy. I remembered him that this would be mentioned in the feedback, after which I was threatened with legal action by him, unacceptable!

    Mijn medelijden voor diegenen die nog steeds met deze persoon te maken hebben. Gedistribueerde wraakbeoordelingen voor kleine transportschade DHL. In plaats daarvan om te klagen dwingt hij de verkoper en geeft wraakrecensies. Mijn verpakking was eerste klas. Bekijk mijn beoordelingen Helaas kun je jezelf niet beschermen tegen zulke kopers Jammer dat er hier iets is! Kopers merken super slecht op

    Mein Mitleid für alle die mit diesem Menschen hier noch zu tun bekommen.Verteilt Rachebewertungen für kleinen Transportschaden DHL.Statt zu reklamieren nötigt er den Verkäufer und gibt Rachebewertungen.Meine Verpackung war erstklassig.Siehe meine Bewertungen.Leider kann man sich vor solchen Käufern nicht schützen.Schade das es sowas hier gibt.!Käufer Note super schlecht

    My pity for those who are still dealing with this person. Distributed revenge ratings for small transport damage DHL. Instead to complain he compels the seller and gives revenge reviews. My packaging was first class. See my re
