Warning about buying book on Amazon

I think I mentioned I purchased a couple of Poodle books on Amazon. I received Shirlee Kalstone's book on grooming and really like it. However, I ordered The Complete Poodle by Dell Dahl and recieved a book by Linda Hopkins. At first I figured it was an honest mistake, but the Hopkins book is more common and the price I paid for a used copy was high. I paid over $10, and it can easily be found on Amazon or Ebay for less that $5. I think the seller intentionally listed it in the wrong place to get more money. I did send it back and am waiting for a refund. If I get the refund, it's not a huge deal, but I have to wait that much longer for my book. (I ordered it off of Ebay this afternoon.)

Oh I have nothing against Amazon, although I usually check ebay first. I just wanted everyone to make sure they're careful. I still haven't gotten the refund, but if it's not here by the end of the week I'll post the seller.

Awesome, I want to get another copy of Kalstone's book for my SIL. She's a groomer and has a spoo, so I think she'd really enjoy it. I bought The Complete Poodle off ebay for $13.50 including shipping.

Be careful about buying from International Books and Proquo Books, aparently they have two names. I just got an email from Amazon that my refund has been processed. This came minutes after sending a second email this week telling them that I was considering contacting Amazon directly about the problem. I sent them an email on Tues nicely asking if the book had arrived and when I could expect my refund. I had to threaten them to get a response. If you buy The Complete Poodle make sure the author is listed!
