I would suggest anyone buying from this guy make sure you stipulate ''registered mail''. It seems the price I offered / paid wasn't enough and so when weeks pass and the item doesn't materialize I'm expected to just accept that fact. I've repeatedly asked when it was sent?, where it was sent?, and how much postage cost? I've had answers to none of these questions despite your having ''family that work for the post office''.
As I told you, it's not the amount of money it's the principle. If you're going to use this forum as a place to peddle your goods & services, you have a responsibility to those people who's payments you accept. In my book taking someone's money and saying ''you sent it and that's an end of the matter'' just doesn't cut it. When I sell goods, I assume a responsibility to the buyer that they will a) arrive and b) be as described. If that doesn't happen I do whatever it takes to redress the situation. Obviously, I was naive to expect the same in return.
Fortunately, I have a good reputation that I've maintained for years. There are many people on this very forum who I feel certain would confirm that I have no need to screw anyone over. These people also know me in person, not as a user name on a screen.
MIB's is a very well respected member of this forum and I have no doubts about his honesty. He also doesn't swear or edit his posts to mislead. That's why he isn't having his account suspended and I'm afraid you are.
