Default Freakin Ebay

So my brother gave me money for my birthday to buy a chrome grille for my blazer.
I went on ebay and found a bunch of chrome grilles, and i bought one that looked good Listing
They sent me a stock OEM replacement grille, the bar in the middle is chrome, but thats it. So i contacted them, thinking they just accidentally sent me the wrong grille, but they said nope, what i purchased is what i received.
When i read that auction Item description it says "Brand new chrome grille" i'm expecting to receive a CHROME grille.
Now i've been fighting with these losers trying to show them that when i want a chrome grille, i want this not a stock grille. And i asked them why is it that in the auction, nowhere does it say its a Stock OEM Replacement Chrome Grille. That would be a more accurate description then just "chrome grille"
Gotta love ebay.

Brand new chrome grille fits 1998-2004 Chevy S10 truck / S10 Blazer.
which i guess can be twisted to say the oe has chrome, but still, they have a return policy, and they should abide by it.

Yes but they only refund your purchase price. Not what i paid for shipping, and i have to pay shipping back to them. Which means i'm out 50 bucks.

I guess i shouldn't have assumed, but even that pictures (crappy as it is) looks like the entire grille is chrome.

This is why I hate when sellers use Stock pictures instead of pics of the actual item for sale.
