Subject: [H] 40k Orks, IG, Marines, Fantasy Orcs [W] $$$
1 Ork Tank Bustas unit, [NEW].
Are you willing to trade just one unit? $30 plus shipping for the Tank Bustas (That's 33%, you said between 30-40% and I just rounded to $30)? These are the finecast ones, right? Painted?

No finecast. Brand new unpainted Metal models.
$6 priority shipping with delivery confirmation.
My paypal ID is: firstname.lastname@example.org

The shipping would be to Canada.
Are the bomb squigs included?
This is the set, correct?

I would do $26 for those.
At this point, we have a trade agreement.Lictors_LoveMachine wrote: Sent: Thu Nov 08, 2012 12:10 pm

No response. Warning of BTR:MClark wrote: Sent: Thu Nov 29, 2012 1:25 am
Hey, just wondering when you put those tank bustas in the mail. They haven't made it here yet. Thanks!
MClark wrote: Sent: Fri Nov 30, 2012 10:10 pm
Pretty confused here. You read my message but didn't respond? Not something I would have expected from a 100+ ref person. Even a simple "I shipped it, must be on the way" would have done.
At any rate, consider this your final warning before I begin lodging complaints both here and on paypal tomorrow morning. Hope we can get this settled without that.
Sorry for having to go this route! Hope you understand.

Sorry about the delay Matt, phone got stolen and that was my only internet at the moment.
Package came back undeliverable, my fault, I left off the country code for Canada.
Upstairs at neighbor's using his computer til I get a new phone.
Need to re ship Monday. Extremely sorry for the confusion.
Girlfriend had checked my messages and told me you wrote, but got tied up in finals and didn't respond.
Thanks for your patience, I will get this fixed Monday, I promise.

Cool, no worries. I thought something must be up, so don't sweat.
I understand bad stuff can happen, so no worries. If you need to wait until after that holidays, it's no worries. That would give up my paypal claim timeline but I have a hard time believing you'd give up your good rep here for a minimal amount of money.
Sorry to hear about that, last thing you want is someone bothering you to ship things! So, some time in Jan is cool!

Thanks for not piling more on top of the stress I have already. I appreciate your understanding.
I have a sour disposition to people usually, but the few like you make me change my mind about people for at least a few days.
I don't need to wait until after the holidays, just a couple days to get to the post office again on Monday should be all I need.
Thanks again Matt.

Hey Tim, just wondering if you got a chance to get it shipping this week.
Lictors_LoveMachine wrote:Sent: Fri Dec 07, 2012 4:14 pm
Yes sir, your stuff is in the mail. Went out Tuesday. Finals at school keepin' me busy.
In 90%+ of my previous trades, two weeks is more than enough time to have something get to me, so I was relatively certain I would get it on time, but in this case it didn't.MClark wrote:Sent: Sat Dec 15, 2012 1:33 pm
Still haven't received those orks. I'm going out of the country today, so if the post don't leave them in the mailbox, they'll be going to the store. The store will only hold them for 7 days I believe, so they may end up getting returned to you. I'm back near the end of the month and will let you know what happened.

Hi Matt. Dug through all of my receipts and found the customs slip addressed to you. It went out on the 5th of December. Don't. Know. Why it's not there yet.

Okay, so package finally arrived today. No idea why it took so long.
We have another problem however. What you sent me was not this:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catal ... tid=281057
As we had agreed on in the past, it was (after some searching):
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catal ... od1610060a
I'm going to need you to ship what we originally agreed on and I'll send these back (which you're going to have to pay for).
The package was shipping on the 5th and took almost 4 weeks. Not sure what customs was doing with the package, but that's not the fault of the member.
It's not a total loss if the member never comes back, as I at least have something similar in value, but I was really hoping to get 40k units as I don't play Warhammer and would like to avoid the hassle.
I had hoped to deal with this without a BTR, but due to the large delay in visiting the site, I felt I had no other recourse.
