BTR-Dennis Brabaron-redbull

Post by psycho7384 » Tue Jan 07, 2014 3:55 pm

I contacted redbull, Dennis, on 11/28/13 about a WoC Chimera he had to trade. He was looking for O&G but I don't have any and asked if he would be willing to sell it. I sent the money via paypal the next day, 11/29/13, and I've been waiting ever since for the Chimera to arrive. I didn't think anything was awry at first, up until 12/22/12 we messaged back and forth about my not receiving anything. But now I find myself here at the suggestion of MagickalMemories. Here are our messages.

Hey Dennis, Do you by chance have a tracking number for that chimera? I'd really appreciate you sharing it with me if you do. I typically get things in 3 days from any where in the country and if you shipped on Wednesday the 4th then it should have gotten here today the 7th, and it hasn't. I realize the mail maybe slowed down because of the Holiday season, but if it doesn't get here by Monday I'd like to see where it is and contact the Post Office, if necessary, to have them track it down. Thanks.

The chimera still hasn't arrived yet. Do you have any more information about the shipping? I ordered another item from ebay that was coming from Philadelphia which looks like it's about 45 miles from you and it was shipped out on the 7th and it got here today the 10th. Did you ship USPS, Smart Post, FedEx, UPS? I'd really appreciate and information you could give me so I can track it down.

Hello. Still no chimera, but good news, if I have to sign for it, then there is a tracking number. I went down to the post office and asked a couple questions today, so if you look on your receipt there'll be a column mixed in with all the charges and it'll say Label #. That's the tracking number, and if you don't still have the receipt, well that's OK too, it's also on the green card you got from them. Not sure where it'll be located on there but just look for the Label # or any other long numbers, sometimes there's letters mixed in there too, and plug them in to the tracking website and see which one brings up the information. I'm not sure what other numbers might be on there and you don't wanna accidentally give me any kind of personal information. I'll be waiting. Thanks.

What's goin on dude? You didn't reply to my message and you've been on at least 3 times since I sent it. Did you rip me off? I hope not but it's kinda feelin that way. If you sent the chimera the way you said you did then it has a tracking number, the post office already told me how it works. So I either need you to get me that tracking number so I can track the package myself and deal with the post office if it's lost in the mail, or I need you to return my $30. I've already gotten 3 items shipped to me from the east coast that were all shipped after you claim to have shipped. I would really hate my second transaction on bartertown to have to end in a BTR.

No I'm 30. You tell me you shipped before work on Wednesday, now your telling me your wife shipped it. You don't get a tracking number, who does that? But you did have a tracking number and didn't have a clue. You don't reply to my message from 2 days ago telling you where the number is. You show no concern what so ever. I've gotten 2 things from Philly and 1 from New Hampshire, all of which got here in 3 days, like I said they would, pretty sure they got the same snow storm you did, and yours has taken longer then a week. I'm not trying to be an ass but what am I suppose to think?

No it hasn't. It's not hate mail and I don't hate you. I hate the fact that I have to place trust in a number next to a user name. All I want is a simple tracking number that lets me know that something is on it's way to my house. Why is that so wrong?

Thank you. I do appreciate it. As long as I have a tracking number I can anticipate it's arrival so I wont miss it. I assumed that if I did miss it they would put in one of those pink cards telling me to pick it up at the post office. I guess I was wrong.

Hey Dennis, I talked to my mail man today and he said there hasn't been any packages that he's needed a signature for in the last 2 weeks and if there had been he would have left a card telling me to come pick it up at the post office, so when you get it back can you double check the address? Thanks.

That's it. He hasn't signed in to BT since 12/23/12.

I messaged the 4 or 5 most recent people who left him good references, asking how their items were shipped and if they got tracking numbers, one said he didn't get a tracking number and was upset by it but his items did arrive. I didn't save those though. Dennis Brabaron was the name left in the references, I found someone on facebook that lives close to where his BT profile says he lives but I'm not 100% sure that they're the same person. The email address he gave me for his paypal, which is verified, was under the name Casey Osthaus, I couldn't find anything for this name.

I call paypal today to open a case. I'm keeping my finger crossed. I hope I did everything right.

I put that email address into Facebook and got this:
https://www.facebook.com/caywood.osthaus

Your trade partner's real name might just be Caywood Osthaus.

Here are a couple people on his Friends list who share the name Osthaus:
https://www.facebook.com/samantha.osthausjonsson
https://www.facebook.com/martine.osthaus

I'd try to message him on Facebook and, if he doesn't respond, reach out to the relatives to see if they can help you get in touch with him.

I received a message today from redbull. He says the chimera has been sitting in his PO Box for a week and that he'll get it in the mail tomorrow with tracking. I'll let you all know if and when it arrives. Hopefully it was all just a mistake.

The Chimera arrived today, so everything is good. I going to include the rest of our communications since posting this report. I feel it's important for anyone else who chooses to deal with him.

Hey there was a package sent don't know what happened but I do you that the package was sent back to my p/o and it has been sitting there for at least a week.... the box it was mail in was damage but the chimera was fine. so I will repack it to day and will go out tomorrow with tracking.

Was waiting on a reply. I see you are saying I never shipped your stuff witch I have proof of first ship. and just for your next trade/sell let person know you want tracking so they bill you for it. you will have tracking and next day tomorrow and would like a good feed back.

Why do you need a reply? I've replied plenty over the last month and still don't have a chimera, so what good does a reply do, just ship. I never said you didn't ship, maybe you should read the report again. I don't know what you've done, I'm not you, and therefore I've never said one way or the other what you've done. All I know is I paid you over a month ago, and I still don't have my stuff. Tracking is standard, I've never had to ask before and no ones had to ask me. It's just something you should do, it's $0.99. As long as I don't get ripped off I have no reason to leave anything but positive feedback, but I will be including a link to the report I've posted. If you feel I've wronged you or that I've been unreasonable in some way, please tell me. I feel I've been very understanding considering the circumstances. Please feel free to add anything you think I've missed or your interpretation of our trade in the report.

The Chimera came today, thank you, I was late though. I'm not complaining, I know it's not your fault, but I wanted to let you know incase you wanted to talk to the post office about it. I know I'd be pissed if I paid for 2 day shipping and it didn't get there in 2 days.

This is crap. A Chimera, built or not, is large enough that every shipping method used would automatically come with a tracking # without any sort of extra payment required, since you're both in the US.

If he had proof of his first shipment, he should provide it to you to prove it.

As you say this is resolved, though, I'm going to lock it up and move it.
