January this year I posted that I need a new armrest. Someone came along claiming to have one, and the sale was made pretty fast (thru PayPal).

The weeks went by, nothing came in the post. I contacted the seller again and he said it had been shipped back to the US, and that he would ship it again next day (this was in the middle of February). Still no package, and seller want respond to PM's.

Of course there may be many reasons for why this has happend, but I think it's fair that when buying from people you act honest and complete the deal.

Anybody know this seller or have some more details on how to contact him?

Unfortunately that can happen even here, although it is EXTREMELY rare. There may be a good reason that he hasn't responded to you, perhaps he has moved or just lost your address.
Keep trying, and hope for the best. This is not typical for the caliber of members we have here......

Myzt,

I think that you're pretty cool for leaving open the possibility that there just might be a mistake. Too many people would have stated that that they WERE ripped off instead of they "may have been ripped off"....speaks volumes of your character.

I think that Bruce might be giving us too much credit for being such "High Caliber" people...but I hope that you and the seller get things straightened out.

If it makes you feel better, I bought some parts last summer and for one reason or another, I still haven't seen any of them but I think in my case, it's just a matter of kicking someone in the butt, not that they are trying to steal from me<LOL>!

He lives in Ramona which is north north-east of San Diego. Get me an address and I will go there. He was emailing me a while back. I think Bruce is right and he is still around. This post reminds me to mail Jeff his throtle body. Busy with buying a home. Jeff, we spent almost 600K for a 2 bdrm townhome in San Diego!

Honestly, with that much time having passed, I'm pretty sure you did get ripped off. No matter what level of status a message board may or may not have, you are always going to have people out there looking to make a quick buck and rip someone off.

It'd be really nice if I'm wrong about this, but I think we all know I'm not.

File a complaint / refund with Paypal.

They will freeze the funds in his bank until it is resolved. Then suck the money back from his account if he refuses to pay you back.

Thanks guys. I know 99.9% of the people here aren't like that, so no worries. Just bad when things like this happens. It's a principle in my mind.

The member has not been active for months, so I guess something may have happend. Very strange if a person takes a small amount of money and leave the board for good. I don't think thats worth it... not unless it's a higher amount thou.

Well well, things like this will always happen sometimes, so just gotta let it go. May try contacting PayPal.

No, but too many times, people jump to conclusions rather then waiting and finding out the real facts......I was just acknowledging their openness
