I am customer in some turkish meerschaum pipe stores, one of them send me an email telling that i will have 20% discount in my next order due to Christmas holidays so i ordered a meerschaum pipe. The initial price was 110 euros so he told me that the offer was on 85 euro, i agreed and send to him 91 euros [i paid 101 euros in my bank which took 10 euro as a purveyance] which means 6 euro more as a gift and today the turk said to me that in his account arrived only 71 euro and now needs another 15 to complete the order!
Did truly the turkish bank took 20 euros as purveyance? did that turk playing tricks with me? I don't know, all i know is that the finally price for that damned pipe will be 116 euros so where is the f***en discount huh?
Learn a lesson from that and don't step in the same trap as i did,
next time you order from a turkish store be suspicious and take precautions!
