yea but the problem is it's not your job to have to do so. your buddy should take care of his comitments if people are paying him for something. i understand stuff happens but i would at least let my buyer know im going through something and it might take longer than expected to do what is needed. he has not once gotton on here and said anything about it or tried to defend him self. so in my book that just goes to show us he can't be trusted in buying from him. im sure he is a great guy and friend and im not questioning that. just he shouldn't sell something and then not 1. ship it. 2. not contact the buyer. hell how long dose it take to get on here and say sorry im really busy right now but ill get it to you soon. im going to let it go cause i got my money back and im happy i didn't get riped off. but it dose piss me off that i had to go through this and i had to do what i did.. not trying to burn and bridges or any thing. thats all. im done.

people on here might say thats not right do dont that, but if they have your hard earned money, then why not fight to get it back?
Going about this route could be considered stalking and harassment depending on the state laws. All the person would have to do is get their friend's to cooperate with their stories and then the problems turn around back onto you.

BTW: I hope you get this settled and taken care of. Never had to deal with the guy but it just makes people even more leary about doing dealings with others on here.

Sadly, I know of someone else that is trying to sell something he does not have
For the sake of fellow members and our own possibility to sell parts in the future you should report it and avoid any development of similar situations. This is against ourselves.

blackoutSVT i have also had problems with him before. ordered a SVT ORP from him paid in full up frount and never heard from him again. if it wasn't for the fact that i paid him through his friends paypal i might have never gotten my money back. he never returned any of my PM's to him and i still have yet to recieve any kind of message or e-mail or phone call from him. all i kept getting was he had stuff going on at home... he i get that but you got to take care of your buyers first. i would never buy from him again.

FiFoci There have been some big miscomunications between us. I spoke with him on Friday and we are working on getting this figured out.
Eric i left a message with i guess ur mother in law to give me a call tomorrow (7-27) between the times of 3:30 and 4:30. sorry for the small window but i have a VERY busy scheduel coming up.

OneEleven uh im confused... that link was for a kit sold 7 months ago... your saying that you waited 7 months of not recieving the kit before worrying? sounds kinda strange to me...

But yes if you paid through paypal, and better still if you have proof of payments AND proof of emails attempting to communicate to the seller, just file a claim with PAYPAL. I had to do that once through eBay and it was a complicated issue so it took about a month for me to get my money back, but i did get it back.

Just make sure that you send the seller emails THROUGH the paypal website, so that the paypal representatives can see that you tried to establish contact and so they can see that your the victim.

mlbbaseball i've personally bought and sold to Chris. he is NOT a scammer. if you bought the kit from him, he WILL get it to you.
