So I got a book I badly wanted, only the front and back cover are stained... with what looks like three or 4 different things and what looks like mold... only the book was then laminated so at least I feel only a bit wiggy touching it. LOL Inside, every page got hit with water damage. I was looking at this book I badly wanted and I was just stunned. It came well wrapped, and shipped fast. How could someone send this without even a heads up? So I sent a kind note in the RWAP explaining what makes the book unpostable and how it could have been listed in the book bizaar forum as unpostable and still gotten a credit as it is a book I personally know people are wanting. I kept the option letting the system ask for my credit back because there is just no way these things could have been missed.
I'm sorry the book doesn't measure up. I thought it was good to send - there were a some light stains on the cover but the inside of the book was good and tight. I'm refunding your credit.
The light staining part is what made me giggle.... really now... light? So my question, is this staining considered light to you? (The photo does not give this staining justic either LOL)
And the water damage stain on the left:

I've noticed flash washes out stains so that they don't look as bad. Someone scanned one once and that seemed to preserve their nastiness much better.
The first pic looks like it might have been used to wipe ones backside.
I can see the water damage in the second picture. I received a book yesteday that had water damage exactly like that on the last 200 pages of the book. Only the second time I've had to RWAP in 2 1/2 years here. Of course the response was, "I don't understand. The book was in great condition. Was the wrapper wet?"
No, the wrapper was not wet, did not look like it had ever been wet, and the inkjet ink was not smeared anywhere on the label.
