Is it time to post a BTR?

Post by psycho7384 » Mon Jan 06, 2014 8:50 pm

So I've been waiting for an item that was claimed to be shipped on 12/04/12 and as of 12/22/13 we were in constant contact. A few harsh messages were sent back and forth but we decided that it was just a mistake at the post office and that he would resend the item when it was returned to him. I resent my shipping information to him on 12/24/13 but haven't heard from him since 12/22/12. OK it was the holiday season so he was busy, but the holiday is now over and still nothing. He has been a member since 07/01/09 and has 13 good references and 1 neutral. His profile says that he hasn't signed in since 12/23/12. So do I post a BTR or should I give it more time?

A BTR? That depends. Have you given him something already? If not, then it would be a deadbeat/backout report, at worst.
If you sent your item, keep your tracking #. If you paid, file a claim with PayPal.
PM his information to an Admin (Red User ID's) and we can look into him, give you any feelings we may have on him, and possibly reach out to him via email.

Did you get a tracking # for the first time he sent it? If so, what does it say?

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.

Yes I sent him money via paypal as a friend, even though he wasn't, to save him the fee paypal charges, I thought I was being a nice guy. No he claims that he didn't get a tracking number but that I'll have to sign for it when it gets here.

Don't fall for that. You're using the automated online system. Call them and speak to a person.
Claim ignorance, that you didn't realize it didn't have the same details. It's worked a BUNCH of times in the past.

As for no tracking #? B.S.
Almost every shipping with UPS, FedEx and USPS come with tracking automatically. What was he sending, specifically?

A WoC Chimera. I messaged a few of the people that left him good references and one other did say that he didn't get a tracking number either but still got his items.

Last I saw, First Class didn't automatically get a tracking # (might've changed, now - kturock would know). A Chimera MIGHT be light enough to go First Class, depending on how it's packed.
Otherwise, the "no tracking #" line is BS.

No, it doesn't.

on a side note. I bought a Bolt Action book through Amazon. It was shipped 1st class with a tracking number. It took 2 weeks to be delivered and was only scanned in the originnating city then arrival in my area.
Heh, I was called a Grognard. ;-)
