    I wouldn't disagree with ya, and honestly don't blame ya at all for being upset, hell I would be too. I was just saying that the embarrassment may do more harm than good, that's all.

    I hope you get it resolved soon...

    A man is only as good as his word. I hope this one makes good for his sake.

    I recently sold an item here. I received the postal money order and before I deposited it, the item was in the mail with delivery confirmation and a tracking number was PMed to the buyer. That is the ONLY way to do business.

    I sincerely hope there is a legit reason things happened the way they did and that you will get what is due to you, but so far I would not divulge private info until you know for sure what the story is.

    I sell a lot and I mean a lot of stuff. I make every effort to make the transaction perfect, including tracking numbers, a heads up for the delivery date. I include my business and cell numbers, photos and any special information that may be necessary. I also gladly provide references if requested. Asking for references in no slap in the face to a seller you have never done business with. $5.00 or $5000.00, it makes no difference.

    When crap like this happens it makes the buyers leary of those of us who go the distence to make sure a positive transaction takes place.

    Something about "Buyer beware" comes to mind here.

    Buyer Beware has to do with buying an item "as is" and then finding problems after the transaction,buying something you never receive is theft and possibly grand larceny.

    You always expect people to be on the up and up. Hopefully it's not an intentional scam, and it gets straightened out. The guy should have provided a tracking # as 'proof'. Hearing stories like this always stirs feelings of 'never again'.

    I have a Harley and ran across this guy that makes a bracket to move the tour pack back. The guy is older and has no website or any advertising. He doesn't even own a computer. They said if you catch him on his shipping day, he will go ahead and put it in the mail to you. I called him, and it was his shipping day. He said to just send him a check, but I'll go ahead and ship,it to you. He's a great guy and was fun to chat with. You don't run across many like that today, and I couldn't believe there was someone doing business on the honor system. My point in sharing that was you will run across good guys after this, and I hope you can pick them out. I'm sure 'George' has had a few people over the years take advantage of him, but if he did, he didn't let it change who he was.

    Welcome to the 21st Century. Shooters have always been the most straight up people around. Last few years no shooters but 'punks with guns' started crawling out from under rocks.

    This is exactly why I quit going to gun shows. They have become crowded with rude self centered folks. I enjoyed it better when the me crowd didn't go.

    I found your transaction, I'll be on the look out for postings from ((( MP9NEWMEXICO))) Perhaps if we all send him a personal email and overload his mailbox he would respond to you! Say the word and I'll start it...
