BAD Trader: damascusxie

Post by Tyrius » Thu Dec 10, 2020 2:15 am

I had chalked this up to bad communication or language barrier but this has been the worst experience I have had in my years of btown and I don't want anyone else have to deal with this. Summary, I posted a want of 2x old style monoliths, seller said he had some, he left out details that parts were missing(he did provide pictures) but that was to me what he was confirming was missing not that was all that was included as I specifically told him I needed them complete. I found some replacements to the things he told me were missing and agreed to take his stuff as he said it was only missing certain things. The package arrived damaged and poorly packaged(energy drink shrink wrap) and missing more parts than originally I was told. I told him I would ship it back but it was at his expense as these are not what we agreed to. He proposed buying the replacement parts I had picked up to complete the models. I attempted to ship his items back and the address he gave didnt exist (post office wouldn't let me ship it). I contacted him again and got several addresses to try. (I think he runs a business because his paypal payment was from a game store and it was several different addresses in Texas). I then shipped to one of the addresses he picked gave him tracking. He thanked me for the tracking. Now he is claiming I never gave him tracking and never got the tracking and package never came. The tracking shows it was attempted to be delivered and he needed to call the post office to pick it up because there was no secure location to leave it at.

Hello, I have 2x old Monoliths for trade and am interested in the Dreamforged Knight you had listed as a straight trade. They are assembled and primed black and I can get pics for you tomorrow if you're interested.

Sounds good. If everything is there for sure. I think we can make it happen. It looked like only the guns were black in the pictures so it might just be lighting but primed is fine no matter what.

I had to check everything on my end. I have had this for awhile boxed up from another trade.

The leviathan is all on sprue. It has an assembly instructions. It builds the leviathan with sword/gatling and has a base. I then have the left hand gatling gun(so you can build 2), 2x grendal/beowulf guns and capacitor cooler(changes the smokestack on back to look like vents). These parts all new in box.

I am asking around if anyone I know has the pieces that are missing. If they were the regular rods it would have been no issue but the guys that do replacements for the bigger ones only sell a full replacement in different colors for $35.

Yeah, I didn't even think to ask around but I have a buddy who bought the replacement set of purple ones for his monolith. So he had a set of that size rods laying around.

Package arrived today. I will be mailing them back. That packaging is the worst I have seen. They were wrapped in energy drink wrapper. Half the guns were broken or bent upon arrival(3 barrels did not have the gun tips at all and these were never mentioned)The picture you sent seems to deliberately not show the completely broken off gun. The steps were broken off the monolith one was in the box one wasn't present at all(also never mentioned). This is in addition to the already issue that you didn't know was missing(40 small green rods).

I suggest looking into better packaging and finding out what a complete model is for what you are selling.

These are the way they arrived. https://imgur.com/a/hpfba0s

The address you gave me doesn't exist in that zip code. And the zip code doesn't belong to Edinburg tx. Your return address on box is nothing like the address you sent me. I need the right address. The shipping for return is $12.60 for the zip code to actual Edinburg which is 78542 not 79549.



I won't be able to get back to post office again until the beginning of the next week. I wasted half an hour at post office today trying to figure out where to send these.

No rush on your end feel free to take your time. I understand this has been a pretty poor experience for you. I saw your post, I had the monoliths as they are left over from the lot and post and picked something on your list of stuff which I figure would be a close but favorable trade for you. Feel free to proceed in whichever way you feel ends up fair to your time and effort.

In their condition I don't know. Nothing i have is broken or missing parts. The monoliths are missing 2 parts that I can't find replacements for. 1x step and 1x barrel. Then 3 other barrels all have the spikey pieces bent and almost broken off. That is in addition to the rods I did buy to replace parts on.

I already said I'm mailing it back. Its $12.60 I'm not paying to ship it. The damages are due to bad packaging and the missing parts (gun and stairs and 40x small rods were never mentioned).

I edited my message earlier but if you want me to paypal you shipping then sure just send paypal. If you want me to pay for the rods you purchased just include them in the package and I'll buy them. Or you can just send me literally anything you want instead of whatever value you wish from from the list of items you have posted.

I can pay you but it would be around $25 but I will send it as payment owed and it will have no fees. We can be done or I can send them back to you and it would be $20 for the rods I paid +12.60. Im fine with whatever. The missing parts are out of stock but are still around $25 more if they can be found.

At this point I have directed him to the BTR. He doesn't seem to read what I have written him about the tracking and now has confirmed it was a business address. The business is open 5-10pm Mon-Thurs and 3-10 Fri & Sat. The package was delivered on a Wednesday at 10:45 AM. As these are business and not personal addresses I have now left them in the post. These are 2 addresses he had sent. The third address was a mix of these two mixing up the street address and the zip codes of both. I have spent way too much time fixing his mistakes making multiple trips to the post office and he doesn't seem to actually check the information he was given or give me the information I had asked originally. I have been on btown for 12 years and this is the 1st time I have had to do anything like this or deal with a "business" that doesn't seem to know what they are selling.

Was it sent to an address I provided second? Both are business address with set package receipt and people there to make sure packages are received.

For the first address -
2322 East Freddy Gonzalez
Edinburg, TX 78542.
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=2322+East+Fre ... 0623970788

For the second address -
6900 N 10th street
McAllen, TX 78504
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=6900+N+Tenth+ ... etatoken=0

Address, zip code and everything is correct. I miss-typed the address zip code the first time in the trade every other address after that has been correct.

Which address of the two did you send to the package to? Did you have issues mailing out the second package to the address or were you able to find that the addresses were valid?

This is a reminder to arrange for redelivery of your item or your item will be returned to sender.

That is the 3rd time I have sent you it. It shows they tried to deliver to you. It looks like it is a business address and not a personal and they left a delivery notice but had you looked at tracking you would see they have a notice for you to pick it up or call.

I googled the address/business it appears your business hours are very limited 5-10pm most days and the delivery was at 10:45 am. I am figuring whomever was in charge of picking up packages or being in the store that day was not there. The package was sent/delivered and is waiting at your post office. IF you had checked tracking you would have seen this 3 weeks ago.

I shipped first without questions. I even paid for the rods you purchased independent of me and for shipping. I mistyped the first address to you and got your follow up PM on tracking with another PM at the same time, but otherwise everything I’ve done has been has been pretty much bending over backwards for this transaction to resolve. I don’t think you can say messaging someone passive aggressively after buying something of your own. You could have easily had the shipment return to sender after finding about the lack of rods. You could have sent the package back to the return address after being displeased with the packaging.

The 2322 address has shipping receipt in the mail pack shop next door for any packages coming in before open time and has had that for almost 2 years.

At the end of this I shipped out 2 of monoliths just to pay to have this shipped back to me and not arrive. Oh yeah and the rods that I ever even purchased myself.

Go to the BTR for further transactions with this trade. I have provided tracking it made it to you. You didn't pick it up from the post office after they were unable to deliver. It's on you to get the package or be available for it to be delivered not me. YOU have had the information needed to claim the package for 3 weeks.
