Last Dec. I sent a payment to a forum member for a W124 part he advertized here.

He was insistant that he have the money in his bank before he shipped it.

Understandable from his point of view, but the risk ended up being all mine.

It is now the end of March and he still hasn't shipped the part. About once a month I've been able to get ahold of him at his work phone in Sacramento CA. He's even returned my calls a couple of times, but everytime it's an excuse why he hasn't sent the part, (a front Sportline Sway Bar). Around xmas, he was too busy selling and installing TV's and such.. Most recently it was an operation, I feel bad that he was ill, but he should offer to send the money back if he can't take the part to a shipper.

I do have his name (I sent him a check), and I know he lives, (or works in Sacamento, CA). I don't want to publish it here out of good manners, but he is wearing out my sence of good will.

Is there anything a moderator can do to help me out with this behind the scenes?

It's time to either refund, or send the part to me.

Thanks in advance.
