Trade with "Taniths Only": Not Resolved

Post by Joebungaloe » Wed Jun 16, 2010 5:26 pm

1. Introduction -
In late April I contacted Taniths Only about trading some DoC or LOTR models for some of his OK models he had advertised in his thread. We reached an agreement on April 20, where I would send him a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh, and upon receipt he would send me a butcher and 3 ironguts. I sent the model, and he confirmed receiving it on May 9. For the last two months I have recieved several sets of difficulties in getting my models, wherein Taniths Only was unable to find his ironguts, and instead promised a) to buy a new box of ironguts and ship it with the butcher, or b) send me a check for the value of a new box of ironguts ($40 USD or whatever a new box in Canadian currency costs converted to USD, whichever was lower). When he was unable to find the models, we originally re-agreed that he would send a new box of IGs and the butcher, but apparent difficulties in getting his GW to stock them led to us recently agreeing that he would send a check and the butcher model. This occured on June 5. June 9 was the last I have heard from Taniths Only, in which he promised to send the models and check, and to give me the tracking info as of June 11. No information has since been given to me, and all of my attempts to contact Taniths Only have failed.

I am understanding if Taniths Only has had real life difficulties that have prevented him from either sending me the agreed models and check or PMing me with the details. However, it has been 2 months since he confirmed recieving the Greater Daemon model, during which receipt of the agreed models has been repeated delayed after promises of delivery. Over a week of silence after a promise to send important information has me worried and a bit frusturated. However, I hold out hope that Taniths Only is merely managing the situation as best he can and that unfortunate circumstance has intervened. Regardless, I am filing this BTR to put the Mods and community on notice that this is afoot, as well as to hopefully spur Taniths Only into making good on our agreement. I would much rather have us complete this than mar his good record, but I have given him ample time to respond to my requests, and am forced to pursue this BTR because of his lack of response.

Joebungaloe wrote:It's the full set of the heroes side from the starter box. Included are:

All 4 hobbits: Frodo, Sam, and the other 2
Legolas
Gimli
Gandalf
Strider
The Ring

All of these are still on sprue, and I have the bases for them too.

I don't have a rulebook, however :( Sorry.

If that looks good, then let's figure out what a fair trade for some OK models would be and do this:)

Joebungaloe wrote:I don't generally use paypal (I don't like their fee percentage system), so I would be fine with either sending me a plain old check, or with you buying some IGs and sending them along with the butcher. It's probably better you purchase them and then send the models, as I think the headache of us figuring out the conversion rate for how much that costs between Canadian and USD is more work than it's worth :)

Let me know what you'd like to do, and either way here is my address again for your reference:

Joebungaloe wrote:It's now been a week since I've heard from you about sending that check and the butcher model. It's been over 2 months since you recieved the Lord of Change model. While I don't want to do this, I am going to put in a bad trader report, which I will widthdraw if you contact me and get this all figured out. I understand the complications that have occurred during our transaction on your end, but feel that it's now come to the point that this is necessary in order for me to recieve my figure (1 OK Butcher) and the money that we agreed upon ($40 USD for the OK ironguts from GW, or the value of a new box of ironguts in Canadian currency converted into USD, whichever is less).

I'm not going to put in a bad trader reference on your profile, and won't do so as long as we can get this resolved. However, the mods need to be on notice until this is resolved, and once that has occurred I'll get rid of the BTReport and I'll give you a good review (because I understand about the delays you've experienced). Please get back in touch with me so that we can resolve this :)

3. Supporting Information -
I can dig up the receipt from UPS if the Mods need it, but I think that Taniths Only's confirmation of receipt should be adequate to show I delivered on my end of our deal. Although it is listed above in our chain of PMs, Taniths Only contact information is:

Josh Aikens
2170 sherobbe road. apt 1507
mississauga ontario
l5a 3p8

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Follow Through -
I am hoping to resolve this matter completely within bartertown, as I sincerely hope that this is just an unfortunate series of events. If this is impossible, I will be contacting Canadian authorities, although I do not believe this will be necessary as long as Taniths Only comes around and finishes our deal.

Thank you for taking the time to help me finalize this matter.

Jeff.. other than 2 months being closer to 6 weeks, you have a good BTR. Please expect a PM from me.
