picked up a TV last night which I had hoped would solve my probs with my son and his telly antics, it was put on the offered as being in "perfect working order", it is unwatchable, 1st time i have been "had" on freecycle, quite cross about it actually, she prob couldn't get it to tip and didn't want to pay for removal

Re: pulled a fast one!!!

Hello Jaqui, sorry to hear of this.

Can you please email the Freecycle group owner address and let them know.
Also letting them know the email address of the person that you got it off (please do not mention it here).

I have an idea who its from & ISTR that it wasn't actually from her but a friend.
(who's phone number you may well have).
Its not nice when people do this, I have had it done to me once too.

BTW, what model of TV is it & whats wrong with it?
If it looks perfect otherwise dont put it outside just yet, they can be repaired.

It may just be that something has come loose during the journey.

Re: Pulled a fast one!!!

How can you get a piano that does not work?

Did you not try it before you put it on wizzy's back to drag away?
