Still waiting on the Quake, 15 days since “Shipped”, and 17 days since payment sent.

No tracking…

To his credit, supposedly coming from overseas.

I really try to avoid international shipping, it is a bear.

Still waiting on the Quake, 15 days since “Shipped”, and 17 days since payment sent.

No tracking…

Same, I have asked for a picture of the receipt for shipment proof and have not received anything yet. I did send my money Goods and Services, so I can request a refund if needed. I am giving it some more time before I jump to any conclusions. I did purchase a Banshee and Cadence at 140 for the two. I know that international can take some time, but I am also wondering how long is appropriate to wait without any proof of shipment. I have asked for a copy of the receipt a few times now (he says he has it on record though)


(Mathias) #12

Same, he told me something along the lines of “you probably wouldn’t be able to read it anyways” … guess I’m just a dumb American.

Staying positive though. Quoted me 2-5 week ship time.


(Brian Datz) #13

Yeah, I’ll give it another week or so myself.

For other’s stopping by, I’m not trying to say he didn’t ship the item, but just sharing my current experience. He probably did ship it. I would just feel a little better seeing a receipt for a purchase of that level (esp. given that there is no tracking).


(Mathias) #14

Same, even if I cannot read it; Or a picture of the package with our shipping address on it. Something reassuring.


#15

I’ll be honest with you, this is not looking good to me at the moment. However, I’m very surprised that @rockstar got paid to send a yoyo and that’s inconsistent with scammer behavior… so…


(Brian Datz) #16

I have sent him a pm asking (now for the third time) for some kind of proof of shipment. I will initiate a refund request to PayPal if he is unable to provide anything by the end of the week. @Applepooh I recommend you do the same.

I should also add that the first two PayPal’s that he gave me would not accept money for some reason. I’ll keep you updated on what happens.


(Mathias) #17

This doesn’t sound good, the name on the PayPal I sent to is Allen A. (I put just the first initial of the last name in this post as to not give out his identity Incase he’s legit) BUT he signed his corrrspondences with Leon…


#18

I’d recommend not dealing with swain. There are back channel discussions regarding this matter.


#19

It sounds like one variation of a possible scam is to get a scammed buyer to pay another scammed seller? @rockstar who was your payment from (just first name and initial to preserve privacy)?


(Brian Datz) #20

My payment was also sent to Allen a. on August 27.
