Beware of member named - brianandGail

This member sold me a becker radio the Beginning of March 2013. It is now April 18th and this member said he shipped my radio April 5th. I still do not have it and he has my money via paypal. I have sent him over four emails since April5th and he has not responded.I searched other posts (classified) and found another member that he misrepresented wheels for $500.00.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS MEMBER listed as GARYANDGAIL.

Sorry to hear about that Terry. Make sure you also look under the Help section on the Paypal site and look for the Resolution Center. You can start a case and may be qualified for a refund.

Good luck.

FYI, you can request your seller to ship COD. They get paid via the shipper and you get the merchandise. Certainly worth the fee.

Thanks for the information W140 and tankNoir. Since I have notified another classified thread regarding (brianandgail) two other members (arira and wellfarewagon have come forth telling how the fellow has ripped them off as well. I have sent private pms to them suggesting they may wish to add their experiences here.

Sincerely

Terry Borth

Sorry to hear that. I got screwed over buying a pair of W201 Bosch Euro headlights that had been photographed to hide a missing trim tab. Different seller. He was super friendly on the phone but would NOT communicate once they had been sent out. After that I got into the habit of just calculating the Paypal seller fee since you can't file a dispute if the money is sent as a "gift" (far as I know anyway).

It's a shame these forums don't have a rating system for buyers/sellers like eBay!



Wanted
W201: Late model cladding clips, mushroom leather seat covers

For Sale
W123: Parts from 1982 300TD wagon
W201: Signal lamps, SRS airbag, mushroom rear seat
