Missing Item in purchase, not as described, missing components

So i purchased a Noctua Cooler from a member on RFD. Missing some hardware that made mounting not possible. He keeps saying to email noctua for the hardware. I dont think this is possible as a seconday buyer right?

Italic message is me, Regular is him. Bolded are key points.

He knew my intentions were to mount onto Intel. Item came with three of the four of the top holder. No back plate with post. There was a random thumb screw there with package. Also, no Y splitter and you can see I clearly asked about this many time.

Cooler came without backplate with post, Y splitter

RFD
ME still have the noctua cooler? Let me know thanks

Yes I still have the noctua heatsink
ME how close to markham are you??? also does it have the 115X intel mounting system?

Yes it comes with that bracket. It is this one: https://noctua.at/en/nh-u12p-se2

ME i can come to pmall tomorrow. what time? txt me,

noctua support is pretty stellar. I wanted to use my old noctua cooler on am4 and they said take a picture of the heatsink and we will send you the bracket. Didn't have to pay for shipping or anything. Somehow i lost the fans for my heat sink and needed the clips to reinstall new fans. They were like show us a receipt for the new fans and we will send you the clips. Didn't have to pay for them again. Noctua support has been great to me. You can try contacting them they may send you it. Good luck.

Even if i do get it for free, its the moral of him misrepresenting his item AND lying

That's not the point. They mis represented the item with having. It clearly did not would have negotiated lower price....
