I bought an inexpensive air dryer off of Ebay recently. Well a few weeks
ago. Its billed as NIB. A refirgeration style Harbor Freight model. The
price was right anyway. Figured if it turned out to be a turd atleast it
didn't cost me much. If I put a filter seperator right after the drier
atleast I'll know if it works or not. After quite longer than I expected I
hadn't seen it arrive so I sent the seller a message asking if it had
shipped yet. They told me to wait the full time listed in their
advertisement. (15 days) A couple days later three of them showed up at my
shop. The return address is Harbor Freight in Chicago.
Not being to much of an opportunist I sent them a message asking if it was
their intent to send me three of them. I never heard back from them, but a
couple days later a fourth one showed up at my shop.
Of course I sent them another message asking if it was their intent to send
me three.... er I mean now four of them. I still haven't heard back from
Other than being a Harbor Freight product is it a scam? How? I bought
through Ebay using PayPal so they don't have access to my credit card info.
The listing is for one item at about the highest discount level HF offers.
I let them know they over shipped. I guess if they don't claim their air
dryers back I'll have three of them to sell in a month or so. LOL.
Actually if the one I hook up works I had planned to buy a second one as a
backup, so only two.
