BTR Brother Ranz: Scott Barber - Resolved

Post by UvulaBob » Sun Jun 19, 2005 5:02 am

I don't want to post this in the Bad Trader area, but I've seem to have lost all contact with the user named Brother Ranz. We're in the middle of a trade, and the goods I sent him were delivered this past Tuesday, the 14th. The last message I got from him was on Wednesday, June 8th. I've sent him two messages, and have yet to hear back from him.

Is anyone else in the middle of a trade with this person who can verify that they have or have not heard from him in over a week and a half?

6/27/05 Update: I've received the goods after tracking Ranz down on another forum. He sent me the items agreed upon and is even willing to send an extra model to make up for it. I'm not one to turn down free stuff. :)

Mods, you can delete this if you feel like it. I feel the situation was resolved well enough to make permanent negative feedback unneccesary.

Update: I've now sent him a total of three messages. The e-mail address I had for him is apparently bad as well. At what point should I officially consider him a "bad trader"?

Now.

A week and a half of no contact is unacceptable, in my opinion.

Start compiling your email correspondence betwixt you two.

On Thursday, June 02, I received a message from Brother Ranz regarding my Hybrid box setI had for sale or trade. He was willing to trade me some Cygnar minis for the box set. We had done a trade before so I didn't think twice about another trade.

I have some WM Cygnar left, some Overlords and Necropolis for Warlord and everything for Clan War. Any of that tickle your fancy?

I will also be shipping out on Monday. Thanks for the trade.
On Tuesday, I sent him a message stating that the package was away.

The package is away!

It should be there in one week. I packed it the best I could and even put a big Fragile sticker on it. Hopefully the stuff will arrived unscathed.

What say you?

I'm actually waiting until tomorrow for a fig I thought I had for you but must have lost or traded. Would you like me to wait until I get your lot with the card and simply send the card with the WM stuff. I should get Nemo either thursday or Friday. Alternately, I could send a Butcher instead of Nemo if you don't want to wait. LMK,

Scott
That's the last message I received from him. I've sent him three messages since then, all of which have gone unanswered.

I found an e-mail address for him, smiorgan@hotmail.com, but messages to it are returned.

Hi there,

It's been over a week and a half since I last heard from you and a week
since the Hybrid box set I sent you was delivered. I still have yet to hear
any word about the shipping of the Cygnar WarMachine items we agreed on.

I've left you multiple message which have yet to be returned. Please let me
know when I can expect to receive the WarMachine items.

Thank You,
Paul Springer

Perhaps he'll see this message and get back to me. The last trade I had with him was good, so I hope he's just forgotten about me or somehow unable to reach his computer.

If a mod could move this to the "Bad Trader Area" I'd appreciate it. Also, if more info is needed, I'll do the best I can.

Thanks.

I've managed to get in contact with Ranz on another forum While I think it's kind of lame that I had to track him down in such a way, he's told me that the WarMachine minis are on their way. We'll see.

Sorry mate. In getting ready for a long vacation, I hadn't been around Bartertwon. I bought the missing Cygnar piece and sent the lot off to you. I had overtraded the Cygnar as I broke up the collection. I sent you and Joker each additional pieces to make good on it.

I appreciate you getting back us, Ranz. As soon as the stuff arrives, I'd be happy to ask the mods to delete this thread. I didn't want to be hasty and post a bad reference or anything that I couldn't take back in case we were able to resolve this situation.

Thanks,
Paul
