I was stupid enough to buy a FT-221R from him that was advertised to be 
in "mint", "perfect", "brand new" [ad nauseum] condition.

When it arrived, it was the dirtiest, smelliest piece of junk I'd ever 
laid eyes on. The case screws were stripped out and someone had added a 
3rd-party front-end board that was laying loose in the bottom of the 
case, "insulated" by a folded piece of paper. Even under the dirt, the 
case looked like it had been through a threshing machine. I could go on 
for some time, but you probably get the idea by now.

When he received my adjective-laden email he immediately offered to 
refund my money, which is probably how he stays in business without a 
horrible feedback rating.
