False Advertising

Trying to find what the rules are on false advertising here. I recently purchased a preamp here and the ad stated it came with the power cable that connects to a battery and a remote for volume control which neither showed up when I received the item. I have tried sending messages to both the account of the seller and phone to which I have received no reply. The email of the seller that was listed after the transaction says it has been disabled.

I have since been able to put together a power cable which consists of using a powercon connector so I could at least see if the preamp works and it does. I really like the preamp but am pretty bummed that it did not come with a) the original power cable and more importantly b) the remote.

Is there any recourse for this? Could I get some money back via Paypal for falsely advertising that this unit would be coming with all the accessories that was listed in the ad?

Any thought?

Just to play Devil's Advocate, did you really, really look through ALL of the packaging?  Sometimes these accessories are located inside the foam/styrofoam inserts and might even be in it's own little compartment.

I bought a piece of gear and couldn't find some of the accessories.  The seller swore he included them.  I went back several times through the packaging and finally found them buried inside the inserts.

Might be worth another look?
