Bought a book described as in brand new condition from used book seller Deer Run Books, Sioux City, Iowa via Abebooks. Book arrived three weeks late, with scratches and stinking terribly of smoke.
E-mailed Deer Run twice to discuss but no reply.
Initiated return. Two weeks after Deer Run received book, they have not refunded my money. Now, I'm out shipping money both ways and the $60 plus dollars for the book--well over $70.
Deer Run's reviews on Barnes and Noble are terrible--other buyers have had the same problems with fraudulent book descriptions, late shipment, stinking books, failure to refund. See: http://portal.barnesandnoble.com/profile/view.asp? />
Bad review is posted by buyer on Alibris as well:
