THR Advice needed!!


February 4, 2009, 12:32 PM
I purchase something from a member here about a month ago. No product and no PM in 3 weeks. I don't want to slander someone's name but at what point do I do something about this? I've written him 3-4 times without a reply. I hope nothing is wrong but I'm at a loss of what to do.

3 weeks with no contact is long enough to assume that it is a fraud. At this point I wouldn't call it slanderous to make the bad deal public.

I would agree. No contact in 3 weeks is too long.

Have they been on the board since then?

I think I would run a search on his profile to see when he last logged on to THR. My next step would be to notify the moderators and pm him with your messages. If I still did not get a response then I would make it public. Just try and keep it somewhat civil just in case something has happened. This seems to happen all to often!

Yeah get with a mod and see if they can contact the guy through an alternate email address, and confirm when he last logged on.

Tell a Moderator I'm shure they can contact him somehow. Or a Administrator

I am not the type to make rash moves. I did check a week or so ago and he had "not been" on THR. I just now re-checked and "February 1st, 2009 09:46 AM". So he could have PM'd me back. My PM were all polite just asking for a tracking number and update.

PM a mod if the member's email isn't public, and the mod can forward an email for you.

unless possibly, they are in Kentucky and buried in ice with no power or phones (or water or food or gas)

If I remeber correctly he was in Cali. I just sent another PM as a last ditch effort to keep the peace. My main concern is his profile has "Last Activity: February 1st, 2009 09:46 AM "

Please PM me with the name of the member. If it is who I think it is, I don't see any public record of a pending sale between you two. Did you make the deal in private?

I sent you a PM. Thanks for the help.

He did all he could to resolve this issue for me, but I think I am out the money. This is the first time ever being screwed by someone in the Gun hobby. I have to take the good with the bad 300 good experiences to 1 bad.
