I hope you can lodge a chargeback with your CC Company. Good luck Mr. B.... oh and yes please by all means out this person.

Whoever it is either in some kind of mess (no excuse) or they are a thief. Have you heard from them recently? The only leverage you have is the threat of disclosure, but I can see you would rather have the goods, and have been holding on to that possibility. Good luck!

Wow, that's bizarre man! Hope you get your money back, or the pedals. There's no excuse for that kind of crap... :gripe:

I have nothing but good deals here. If it's an active member they should really man up and send you the pedals but after three months unfortunately at this point they're trying and succeeding in ripping you off. Contact paypal, try and make arrangements to get your money back, and at the very least let the captain know what's happened so appropriate measures can be taken. Sorry this happened. Such a great place we have here so that's extra lame if a regular member has decided to be a crook.

Sounds like Ultraboreal. But he's long long gone. That guy was a turd.

Man, sorry to hear about that situation, Ben. Even though you used Paypal gift option you do have options to file a claim, though they may be limited. If you used a credit card I believe you can go directly to the card issuer and file for a chargeback. I hope it works out because losing any amount of money sucks.

This is why the PayPal Gift option has always been a little scary...we always want to think the best of people (especially likeminded fellow fuzzheads!), but there are always a few unscrupulous assholes out there trying to take advantage of the rest of us and an honor system that works 99% of the time...it’s just that 1% that’s the problem. I’ve had problems also on some other forums (unsurprisingly, but where the gift option has now been banned), but I really wouldn’t expect that kind of thing here...and it’s a shame, because this is generally a pretty tight nit group where we shouldn’t have to worry about that sort of bullshit. Ben is one of the best guys to deal with and a really good dude in general...I hope the seller makes it right, otherwise I would out his ass publicly so he doesn’t burn anyone else. Hope it doesn’t come to that, but ya’ gotta do what ya’ gotta do...and if he doesn’t do the right thing, I’d still try to PayPal dispute it despite the gift option. I’ve heard about buyers who’ve been burned still winning...

Shit. Hope it works out and you don’t need to name and shame. Not nice if there’s a dodgy seller lurking though.

Name them incase others try to buy, give the credit card route a go. :paranoid:

So sorry to hear this happened to you Ben. Yes that’s a lot of money. I hope everything works out for you

From what you said it’s been 4 months since you paid the seller? I hope you can get your money back at least
