Purchasing Items in Cyprus

Benefits and problems from the EU membership.

I believe that if you were to make a deal prior to purchasing the item you would have not had this problem.

I purchased a mobile phone and said to the seller that if I didn't like it could I change it, finally got a cheaper phone with my money back

Reckon you gotta accept it the way it is Sega. Like others say, technically it was your own fault, and as it wasnt faulty goods, you will have to accept vouchers. The same rule applies everywhere surely?

Sega wrote:I have a problem, it's a query that I hope somebody could clear things up. What it is is that I bought a TV for around £400, but because of it's size it would not fit in the space allocated. So I replaced it in the store for a cheaper TV for around £320, which fitted in like a glove. However when replacing it, the store would not give me my money back (price difference) and instead gave me some vouchers (which to be honest I don't want, I would rather have the money).

Am I not entitled to my money back?

I thought consumers had the right of a full refund if the item was unused and returned within a suitable amount of time. I returned it instantly.

Does the European Union not change things in terms of consumer law?

I would appreciate any sensible feedback.


Which European Union? is your case related to funding a project by EU in Cyprus? If not we do not know what EU is. You have to deal with Afghanistan- they have better rules than the Ottoman afftected rules in Cyprus.
