    Kinda OT, but i need opinions on this!

    I sent payment for a part in december and i know it was recieved (certified mail w/ return of sig. tag) it has now been over 2 weeks, not a word from the person.
    I sent a fair amount of money, and i am a broke college student, this was a present from Rita and Me to Me. We really scimpped to get this part. can it really take that long from the east coast over to the west coast?
    a week I can see, but this is getting weird...

    Call and email that person everyday.

    Usually things get worked out here. Only a few true scammers - therest have been bs and misunderstandings....

    People are human...they forget things. Maybe it got lost in the mail? I would call the person,and e-mail them.

    I'm always leery of this sort of thing. No way would I send someone money without talking to them on the phone. That way, at least I can harass the @#$ out of them if they don't follow through. Much harder to ignore phone calls and I can have my computer call them every 10 minutes 24 hours a day if they jerk me around. [​IMG] Good luck, I hope it works out.

    my roommate ordered a set of shocks off of a guy on ebay...he got the returned check and still nothing...3 months later after emailing the guy 2-3 times a week he mailed him a letter from his lawyer.
    got an email shortly after saying the parts were being overnighted to him.
    sometimes it just takes a little "reminding"

    I have requested the persons fone number and it was never given. I am a trusting person, i thought with that kind of money going it would be boxed and ready to go. It was a Postal Money Order so i KNOW it has gone through. i have the recipt and info to prove it. I have the persons signiture to take the letter and all info is correct. I even paid extra for the shipping. It does not take 2 weeks to get from the east coast to the west coast.

    I am going to wait until this Friday's UPS drop. If it is not there, I will file with the USPS, get my money back, and that person can deal with the Federal Gov't in regards to Mail Fraud. I hate to have this happen but the item is/was time sensitive for my truck to run.

    I was just wondering if anyone has had problems going coast to coast or like that. i do not want to think it of the person as a crook.

    BTW, i have been trying to contact them but to no avail.
