OLD THREAD ALERT I saw a post in the for sale section here about a year ago for a pair of nice looking doors. I PMed the seller indicating that I wanted them and we came to an agreement of $250 for the set including shipping. So I go to the post office the next day, get a money order and send it off to him. The next day I get a PM from him wondering if he gave me his correct address, nope he miss typed it. So now my MO went to the wrong address and it had to be returned to me. I should have known at this point that this was going to be a problem deal. Anyways, I get it back and send it out again. I also told him I didn’t need them right away so he didn’t have to rush to get them sent to me. What a mistake that was. So a few months go by ( now 1/25) and I haven’t heard anything from him about when he is going to send my doors. He says that he needs to move them from where they are stored to his place so he can crate them. March 22, he still hasn’t picked them up. April 15, I tell him I’m in need of them now so I can put them on my truck. He says that he can get them to me by the end of the month otherwise if he can’t then he’ll refund my money as I requested, he’ll update me in a week. May 10, after he hasn’t made his end of the month promise I asked for my money back. “I just got the doors up here, my loss I guess” is his response. So I said I’d rather have the doors than the money, how soon can you get them to me. He says “By the end of the month” (May 30). Fine then ship them to me. May 30 comes and goes, no PMs about him sending them to me. So after a few more weeks go by and I hear nothing from him I ask for my money back, I’m done dealing with him and no longer want the doors, I don’t care if he could ship them the next day. He says fine, I’ll PM you this week to let you know when I can send the money. Yeah, right. Just like all the other times I had to prod him to get a response from him. I then called him to find out when I’m getting my money back, I’m tired of waiting. Again, he says that finances are tight and he’ll have to check when he can get a commission check. I asked if he could borrow money from his parents or friends, cash advance on his credit card etc. because I didn’t want to wait any longer, I needed the money to go find other doors. His response is that he’s tapped out on borrowing from his mother and his father was in another state, and his credit cards were maxed out. I’d have to wait for his check to come in and then he’d send out my money the next day. A few days later I see him posting a wanted add for a transmission and transfer case. So again, after his commission check is suppose to arrive, no word from him. I call him to find out where my money is, he say’s that he doesn’t know if it’s been sent out yet because his father (who if you recall is in another state) is handling his finances. I’ve tried calling MANY times since then and he’s been ignoring my calls and sending them off to his voicemail. But once he made a mistake and hit the wrong button and accidentally answered, just in time to hear him start up his Cherokee. So here it is, a year later …. No doors and where is my money? By the way, this seller use to be very active on here until I started pressuring him, now he just lurks here. And several people on here know him personally and live in the same city, including a moderator. So here’s the question. I’ve been more than patient, what would you do? I’m thinking I should just report this to the postal inspector to see how they like their money orders used in mail fraud. Or since he is located in another state should I report this to someone else?
