Had no idea that money is protected for 30 days as I usually have communications way before a 7 day time frame... you did your job boss and as of now I am still planning on buying these fenders just waiting for the next word from our boy trevor.

o.k guys I have let him know that I still intend to buy the fenders, not taking that back, and told him to refund my money so I can re send the money...the reason I want to do it like this is that once I close a dispute I cannot re open or escalate to a claim so I still want to be protected...I think that's fair.

reply has been sent... it's been a horrible week for me and my fiancee. car breaking down last week.. and her grandmother in the springfield regional medical center ICU dying this week. on the plus side finally landing a new job this morning, so no more need to sell off anymore of my focus stuff... don't want to deal with another hassle transaction like this again.

He should have had a little more patience but I completely understand his actions. You start getting freaked out when a user sends messages instantly to you until you pay and then drops off the face of the earth after you send the money. If I was the seller I would have tried anyway possible to send an email or some other form of communication to the buyer to notify him of the situation. Shit happens but you always have to communicate with the buyer no matter the circumstances. The entire thing seems like a misunderstanding that has been resolved.

i had no way of getting ahold of him, if you see my fs thread, my car broke down out of town, and while i did have my phone it didn't have internet access. only text based emails. if he had emailed me questioning the status he would have known. upon arriving back in town on the 23rd (less than 5 business days since purchase) after calling fedex for a pickup (the fenders in question) i see an email is my junk folder from oct23rd 3:34am stating he's reporting me to paypal and did so a few hours later. never before then had he emailed about the fenders, or waited for a reply as paypal even states to do.

the buyer also failed to mention that yes, i did communicate a lot on the date of purchase. only because communication about the fenders had been back and forth for 3 weeks or more. stating he'll get in touch with me no later than the 16th. so i contacted him on the 17th about them. another thing he didn't mention is that due to me not being a daily user, on occasion basic communication regarding the fenders were at times 5+ days apart, he seemed to be patient then.. so what changed?


all in all, patience would have definitely been in everyone's favor as this is still being sorted out.

what's also sad is that he would have either received the fenders today the 25th or tomorrow. now it's being delayed even more.

I was not trying to take sides or start another debate on the issue (in fact I was attempting the opposite). So, I apologize if my previous post offended either party. I only was saying that both parties made mistakes and I can understand why both parties did what they did. I've been on both ends of this situation and was trying to give tips for future transactions to go smoother. Another few days of patience on his part and you contacting him sooner which you could have called someone and had them send a private message to him even in the situation you were in.

PS: I'm glad everything is going better now for you and that this transaction is being resolved.
