Trade Backout-Macphearson

Post by JayLikesSKaven » Thu Apr 17, 2008 8:38 pm

Well I hate to be the first one to do this but seeing as there is a proper forum for this now, I feel like I should.

Around mid March I pm'ed Macphearson about some Vespros Vendetta(9 models I think) that he had up for trade. We agreed that in exchange for the vendetta, I would send him a few NIb empire things. After a few days he informed me had the flu and it was taking him longer to get them out but he would get them out in the next day or so. After that I lost contact with him. I pm'ed him a few times to see if he had shipped but they just sat in my outbox. Finally they moved from outbox to sentbox but I have yet to get a reply.

Here are the Pm's:

Its been over 2 weeks since you said you'd ship. You have not read my other Pm so I'll wait 1 more week to get a response from you, if not I will consider this a trade back out.

,Jay

These last 2 messages sat in my outbox for a week or so until they finally went to the sentbox, meaning he had read them. I waited a week for another response but haven't gotten one(even though he's read my messages).

I hate to post this as he is a new trader and I probably will not leave him bad feedback as it would pretty much ruin his Btown career. I just wanted to post this so everyone would know what to expect when dealing with this trader.

,Jay

Ps.First time doing this so I hope I did everything right.

3 weeks with no contact, and you still haven't received anything? With the information you have I'd consider it a backout as well. You've done the right thing posting the PMs right off the bat, although the time stamps on them are difficult to decypher (for me anyway).

:-| Hope this gets resolved for you!

Just a little update:

A day or so after I posted this, Macphearson pmed saying the package was on its way. I got the package today and I was somewhat dissapointed. As soon as I picked it up I could hear/feel models moving around. Once I opened it, the packaging was basicly the 9 models thrown in a mailing box and then 2 small plastic bags put inside. This caused a few broken/bent swords.

Vespero was also missing one of his arms. I have Pmed Macphearson about this and hopefully I can get the missing arm and be done with this trade.

backout

Sounds like a rather poor trader by all accounts :| Not only did he maintain very poor communication, he took forever and a day to post the item. And then, the models arrived in poor condition :| I will avoid this one, cheers! :)
