Looks like I jumped to conclusions Re: late payment.

    I sent a K5er some FREE parts and fronted him the $7.85 shipping with his promise that he would send me a check. I even enclosed the UPS receipt to show I had put it on my wife's VISA. It has been 2 weeks and I have no money here. He said he was going to mail a check immediately, but I haven't gotten it or gotten an email saying it would be late. I would advise others against fronting others the shipping charges if you can't afford to lose it. How long should I wait before I get ornery? I will announce his name in about 2 days if I don't hear from him. Am I out of line here? UPDATE 3/31 2:30 PM: Buyer informed me that payments was returned to sender for an improper ZIP code. That being the case, I admit that I jumped the gun in panicking and apologize to this K5er if he is reading this. Bigerik stands corrected.

    A promise is a promise. I'd give another week. Sometimes people get real busy and this can serve as a last reminder. Then you can get onery. [​IMG]

    Re: A K5er is not sending money owed or emailing.

    I'd wait another week like what Muddin said...stuff comes up. I spent a lot of the day yesterday and today at the hospital due to my g-ma feel and broke her thumb...stuff like that happens and you have no control and you have to sometimes leave things up in the air. It sucks, but you can't help it. If they don't email you to let you know what's up or pay up then I think you would be justified in naming them. After all a deal is a deal and if you can't follow through then there is a consequence in that. I don't think anyone would consider you out of line since none of us that I can think of can afford to lose money even if it's not a lot. It all adds up in the end....

    Have you contacted this person and asked what's up? There may very well be a legitimate reason for their tardiness. Contact them and ask.

    Re: A K5er is not sending money owed or emailing.

    I'd say 2 weeks is plenty of time to at least email.. Hell, in the time it takes for my puter to boot up, I could write the dang check, addy the envelope, and stick it in the mailbox out front. The money ain't the issue. All any of us have in this forum (or anywhere else) is our good word. I believe a person should do what they say they will do, when they say they will do it. When you get down to it, the only thing anyone has of any value is personal integrity. I would email the person in question and tell them that is you haven't received a reply in 2 days, you are gonna post their name in the forum. Just my .02. JD

    I'm at 10th and Plum....10 miles from nowhere, and Plum out in the sticks....Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..

    Re: A K5er is not sending money owed or emailing.

    I for one would be interested in knowing who's not playing by the rules...........I've had dealings with a few of the CK5 brotherhood and the results have always been positive. When people start to take advantage of other's generosity it takes away from the family feeling we have here.

    This has happened before and probably will happen again, but don't worry bigerik, a huge majority of us here can be counted on to stand behind our words...........

    That's a good thing about K5jimmy...he's straight forward and does what he says he'll do. He's someone you can feel good about dealing with (speaking from personal experiance). Thanks k5jimmy!!!

    I have to kiss his butt, cause I practically stole his blazer from him..he he!

    Re: A K5er is not sending money owed or emailing.

    When I do business by email with strangers (eBay, etc), I always get their phone numbers...home, work & cell. It eliminates most of the frustration you are experiencing. Good Luck.

    Bryan,
    Sorry for the delay. I still have your intake, camshaft and timing chain in 3 boxes in my truck. I had a delay because the truck took 5 days to smog (needed a new intake manifold(this is my other truck)) and the boxes were in the truck when it was in the shop. $500 and 5 days later, I am back on track and will get you a quote to Raleigh today. Sorry for the delay.

    Hey bud. It's cool. I was just a little confused and thought I had missed an email or something! Sorry to hear about your truck. I've had emissions problems with mine too. Would never pass and I couldn't get it inspected. A friend's dad "fixed" mine so it would pass if ya catch my drift! Just let me know what I owe you when ever you get the chance. Thanks!
