Advice...seller wont respond to PMs after Payment
 
So i worked out a deal with a member on a high-end lot(over $450) Tuesday heres how it went down...


On Monday, while tweaking the deal i asked if he would be shipping next day. He told me he was away from home, and wouldnt be back until thursday to ship them out(something i thought he should have told me in the begining, but whatever)...it took a week to work out the kinks and agree on a price(started negotiating last week).. so i sent an extra 5 for priority flat rate box and another dollar for tracking...

When he sent me his paypal for me to pay he wrote 'I have to dig out the cards'. That phrase had me worried so i asked what do you mean by 'dig out the cards? I pictured him not knowing where they were, and if 1 of the highend cards wasnt there, then the deal would not have been as sweet as it was.

He wrote back i have them in 5-7 shoe boxes, if the deals not going through then hes not going through the boxes.
I was satisfied with the shoe box answer, because it told me he knew where they were and i understood what he meant by digging them up, so i sent the money wednesday the 11th...since then ive wrote to him several times with no responses.
He hasnt told me they were shipped, even though i gave him that extra money for priority.

What should i do? I plan on filing a claim Monday if i dont get a response. Is that what you would do?

Any help/advice you give me would be greatly appreciated.

Have they been online since you started messaging? If so, send another with clear deadlines for receiving shipping info and if not received by your deadline then proceed with a claim.

Also make sure you have the specific list of cards in your communications with the member in case of missing cards.

This is a famous blowout move. I am surprised it took long to happen to you. People are your best friend when you are about to pay for something. Then the second you pay. BOOM..................NO RESPOND MODE KICKS INTO OVERDRIVE. If it makes you feel any better I send free cards to people all the time. 90% of the time I dont even get a thank you.

Carmine 07-14-2012 05:23 PM

I have dealt with people who have taken 3 weeks to deliver cards, but atleast the seller kept in contact with me.

Sometimes folks don't understand how much weight the words thank and you have when used in conjunction with one another. Some people didn't have parents who taught them common manners.

yessir. I treat all members with respect, its always Hey sir, or excuse me sir and always thanks...and i always get back to people if i dont want to purchase a offer. its flat out rude to not have the common curtosy to let someone who offered you something. to not let them know you will have to pass

Has this person been online yet?

mrtysdad 07-14-2012 09:50 PM

sorry to hear this happened, if he doesnt respond by monday I would definately go after him, that is to much money to have to play around with someone. good luck buddy

Carmine 07-16-2012 12:28 AM

I did get in touch with him, i did filed a claim against him...he was mad about the claim filed, if i took it away he will mail tomorrow, so i took away the claim.

cruiserdaddy7 07-16-2012 12:34 AM

So you closed the claim and NOW you cannot open another one. I would have told him to go to hell Ill close the claim ONCE you ship. People on here get worse and worse. There is no punishment for being a pathetic seller and MANY negatives are turned into neutrals. How freakin hard is it to answer PMs and ship something out? Its always so funny how FAST they are to answer when they want your money. I hope you get your stuff because now you no longer can file a non receipt claim.

Carmine 07-16-2012 12:37 AM

cruiser i didnt know you can only open the complaint once...hope he ships...i have faith in people...maybe too much

Please tell me you are kidding.....

Who is this clown?

DanShakespeare 07-16-2012 02:04 AM

This dude just took you of $450 and you cancelled the only chance you had to get our money back ?!?! Oh buuuuuuddddddyyyyyyyyy

DanShakespeare 07-16-2012 02:04 AM

Who is this person?

uberfatty 07-16-2012 02:12 AM

please post this person's ID so other members can be aware.

You seem like a genuinely nice individual. Far too nice and trusting to deal with some of the sellers on here. You should do your fellow members a favor as others have asked and post his user id. Other need to be made aware of his actions. He could have refunded you and instead coerced you into closing the opportunity to get your money back.

If you paid with a credit card you can contact your card issuer and file a charge back. Paypal will no longer help you unfortunately and it appears this creep of a seller knew this. I wish you the best of luck. Judging from your feedback a shady seller has ripped off a very good buyer.

uberfatty 07-16-2012 02:28 AM

The other thing I would do tomorrow ASAP is call PAyPal, calmly explain the situation, and see what they can do to get the case re-opened. Just say you inadvertantly closed it and did not intend to do so. Can't hurt to try.

Carmine 07-20-2012 10:30 AM

update all...since i closed the dispute the guy has not been online and doesnt respond to personal disputes.

the GOOD NEWS...I explained to paypal in detail what was going on, and as a one time curtosy, i have the dispute REOPENED

excellent news - good luck.

Also if you haven't already, please post the user's ID so others can watch out for him.

Carmine 07-20-2012 10:58 AM

gets at me in pms, telling me im getting deals b/c off season prices....

does anyone come on here and say i'll pay $50 for a card thats going for $35 because i know it will go up during season

possom813 07-20-2012 12:54 PM

Edit, nevermind, I overlooked the name on the memberlist

xbignick 07-20-2012 01:25 PM

I suggest leaving a negative now.

houdini 07-20-2012 02:30 PM

If all this is true, why is there no negative? I am not doubting you, but like nick says, the only way you are helping this community is by leaving appropriate feedback.

You should also be forwarding all this information to the mods so that they can suspend or ban this individual.

Glad you got the case re-opened! Thanks

DanShakespeare 07-20-2012 03:33 PM

Yes leave him feedback to warn others please!

purejd86p 07-20-2012 03:40 PM

When are you going to leave a negative for him?
