I read that those who know Steve said plain as day that they would PERSONALLY give him a call to see whats up with him. The least that you could do is wait 1 day for a response from them as to their findings.
We have all been burnt in some way or another when dealing with selling/buying slots. But This guy (whom I do not know) must have a good reputation if others here are vouching for him.
A word of recommendation ...Do not send merchandise UNTIL you have payment in hand..or PAYPAL account.
My 2 cents
That's why I love this forum: full of kind and caring people.
I have nothing to say against GB or BRPHO: I've made a nice trade in the past with the first and I can understand the impatience of the second (even if this board is not like the ePay resolution center...).
Anyway, my hats off to Fordcowboy
I am in no way looking to make anyone look bad here.
I understand people get busy and distracted in life with other things.
I for one know it with 2 little ones myself.
I just want to resolve my swap with gear buster and move on. No harm no foul.
I'm officially out of slots now since selling off my collection on the boards to many of you. I just don't have the time for them in my life now....
I can honestly say I have met or swapped with many of you in the past and had very good experiences with many of you.
NOW, this is where I have become lost????
Somehow paypal got brought up here?
I don't have a paypal account as I originally posted in my for sale posting.
I specifically stated check or money order as payment.
Now I get a PM last night from gear buster stating he sent payment to my paypal.
I don't have one!
A check or money order for $35 is what I have been asking for sent to me for the last 3-4 weeks to resolve this deal....
I don't care who pays gear busters bill, himself or one of his friends here on the board.
I would like to get this resolved already and put it behind me.....
I'm sure Steve is a nice guy and is busy but you don't go and eat at a restaurant and then tell the owner sorry I'm to busy to pay the bill and walk away or tell the owner I sent payment to your paypal account which is nonexistent on the owners end.
I just want to be paid so we can put this silliness to sleep already......
This issue still has not been resolved between Steve(gear buster and myself).
If one of you, his many friends wants to pay his way for him, I don't care where the $35 payment comes from in check,money order or cash,but I come from the school of paying your own way and a handshake is held with respect. I shouldn't of had to question this persons reputation based off all of your resonses holding Steve in such high regards here on the boards.
Thats why I went ahead and sent him the cars before payment was sent by him. This is where I faultered on my end of being to trusting of individuals here.......
