Attempted fraud by private seller on this forum?
I agreed to purchase 13 boxes of .380 ammo from a private seller one month ago, who I won't mention in this thread but you can read in my buyer/seller feedback.
The guy had a previous positive feedback so I figured it was a cool deal. I sent payment, he confirmed he received it. Well over three weeks have gone by, no ammo has shown up, nothing.
Two weeks ago, the seller PMed me and said he received a delivery exception from UPS and that the ammo was damaged. Last week, he sent another message claiming UPS was able to recover most of the package and asked me if I would take it. I said yes, granted he refunded me for what was lost.
This week, I have emailed him several times (without a response) asking for a tracking number which he never provided from the start. I find this very suspicious. I called UPS, and they said they had no record of a package being sent!
Am I overreacting here? Any suggestions?
