I can't help but speculate or wonder if this guy delays/avoids contact or shipping in hopes you wait past the alloted Paypal dispute time. If a buyer waits to long to take action, then they can be "SOL". Either way this guy plays games or is simply not a responsible & reputable seller.

Being this has happened to numerous members here, HE SHOULD BE BANNED!!! Moderators, please consider this to avoid future drama on behalf of our feller members. This guy is an

Did you pay the seller for a armrest you never received?

Hey Guys,

Lets get things straight. I am not a scammer, just someone who struggles with life. I don't need to rip anyone off, nor do I mean to. I sell a LOT of things all over the internet, every once in a while shit goes wrong for whatever reason, delays, my own forgetfulness, whatever. I won't blame the buyer for any of this, I know its my fault. Selling so many things, my chances of having one or two rough sales is quite high, at least for someone who only does this to clean out his garage, not as a business.

So apologize there, sincerely.

euroamg - I don't claim to have a very good memory, but I really can't remember selling an arm rest. Did you ever get your money back, what arm rest was it? If I still have it, I'd be happy to send it free of any charges, if you need it.

Not to lower the tone, but Trick; maybe you should hang around for a little longer before making harsh accusations. Calling me an ass hat using a animated picture doesn't make it any less apparent.

I've been slowly getting out of the Benz game for a while, I just can't keep feeding my addiction, so anyone that has received less than ideal service from me, please get in touch and I will see what I can do for you. I have a lot of parts which need new homes.

Hopefully, maybe, everyone can understand. Sorry again.

I agree, that his post here is a great first step, and it does seem genuine.

But I just want to point out that bad feelings are usually avoided with simple & basic communication. Even bad news like , "I can't ship right away", or, "I'm out of town for two weeks", etc., is better than getting no feedback at all.

From a buyers point of view, not getting a simple email acknowledging receipt of money etc., or "I haven't forgotten you", is very concerning.

I'm waiting several weeks now for an item, but at least the seller is communicating and giving feedback regularly. So I'm be paitient and not overly concerned yet, because of the communication.

Also a comment about not remembering a sale, basically unexceptable! All sales, ( not done in cash), have a paper trail, emails, postings, PM's, PayPal, canceled checks, etc. and the buyer certainly has all these things at the tip of his fingers.

And as a buyer, I expect the seller to be organized enough to keep track of his acounts receivable.

All the seller needs to do is advertise with an item "hey I'm not too organised and I may forget I sold you this item" ..., right...haha, good luck selling anything at all... kind of a basic requirement, remembering if someone gives you money... If you have too many irons in the fire and can't keep track, then slow down enough to get control of things....

I work in a big "Customer Care" industry, so we are always focused on how the customer feels and how to improve, and the basic answer is always, communication, and more communication...

Don't leave emails, PM's, or Forum Posts unanswered, it all goes downhill quickly without prompt replies......

Anyway, One big thumb up for the public post and explanation, and an almost thumb up for future intentions...

(positive feedback from buyers gets 2 thumbs up every time, try to sell on eBay with negative feedback)

Communication is key

I don't buy that someone is too busy to not answer PMs or posts, especially when they are clearly online.

It takes one minute to answer someone's PM. That is a very very weak excuse.

I think it would be much easier to forgive Jack if there weren't multiple members reporting problems with their transactions.

I echo the previous member's reply. Communication is key and can solve most problems.

I personally met Jack before at a FL GTG and even purchased (onsite) a few of the many MB goodies he has... so he does exist.

I do recommend that every buyer conducting an online/internet transaction procure the seller's phone number(s) so telecommunication is available. That's what we do in the office right? If you can't contact a client or customer, then pickup the phone and dial away (or text away). That way the seller has further responsibility to answer or reply in a prompt manner. And to add, Jack you just simply need to follow-through on your transactions. Following-up and following-through are basic principles in any type of sales.

Oh, well, as long as he's not trying to screw anyone over then I guess it's no harm, no foul, right? His intentions are more important than his actions? He sells a lot online and when neglect creeps in, he says he's not a crook, just lazy (by his own admission - "delays", "forgetfulness", or "whatever"). Weak. And if he's lazy, then he's probably been lazy with what he's selling too - lazy enough to just "patch" a car he's selling rather than fix it properly. Lazy enough to use a Sharpie to fix that little nick rather than get it painted.

His behavior speaks volumes about his personality, and you don't buy things from a guy who practices bad behaviors. He's no scammer, just a bad seller. Apologies are easy, changing behaviors isn't.
