Bad Trader - Jason Scheiber (jmsguitars)

Post by cypherl » Thu Nov 14, 2013 6:17 pm

I. Introduction

I traded with Jason Scheiber, aka jmsguitars, in early November. He shipped with very poor packaging and consequently many models broke. Furthermore, 2 models which were agreed to be present were not present. I had sent mine off beforehand. I was cheated of the 2 models which were not included, and the condition in which the models were when delivered was atrocious.

II: Proof

Now I can't very well provide picture evidence as he might claim that I am simply not taking a picture of the missing models, or that I broke the models and then photographed them, so here is the PM thread starting with most recent post at the top:

I was really hoping to get the Hive Guard conversions. If you can't find them, can you think of a means with which to recompense me?
Thanks.

I have looked and looked and the Hive Guard conversions are not present, Can you look to see if you forgot to include them? Thanks for your time.

They are not present. I have to say I am disappointed in the packaging too, a lot of the models broke.

The 2x Hive Guard conversions were not in the box, and are the Tyrant Guard among the unassembled metal bits?

thats fine, i replied to you on there.
if you use a flat rate box, it is included, and otherwise i think it is less than a dollar.

Ok, then. Please, as a note of trustworthiness, respond to the email left at your dakkadakka inbox, AlphariusOmegon. I'm sorry, and this is pretty silly, but I just wanted to double check because it seems your pictures are coming from two different sources. I will weigh everything up tomorrow and hopefully have it shipped by then. In order to get a tracking number, does that require an additional purchase at the post office, and if so how much is it? I wasn't aware of that and was just going to do standard shipping.
Thanks,
James

Ok, so if I understand correctly, you wish to offer all of that for what I mentioned in the previous post? How shall we trade? Shall we each package and ship by the end of the week and cover our own shipping charges?

Ya, you might have to get bitz then. So what exactly did you want to offer for 2x battlesuits, 12x firewarriors w/ rifles, 19x kroot warriors(just counted how many there are, so it'll make one full squad with the shaper), 1x kroot shaper, 4x pathfinders, 3 w/ rail rifles? (there are 4 extra kroot warriors which need gluing; one came off his base and the others need to have their guns reglued).

Thank you for your service.

do you have the bits for the suits? if not, that is not a problem. i can order them from hoard o bits. i can have th enids shipped out friday, as i get my VA disability then.

The battlesuits do not have all missile pods, they have a mix of weaponry. Full squad of fire warrios with rifles is not a problem.Two full kroot squads is doable, as you can see some are painted, some not. The pathfinders also is fine.

III. Supporting Information

His shipping number for what he shipped to me:9114901159818278020039
My shipping number for what I shipped to him:9114901159815053105875

His name is Jason Scheiber, and I am not sure if I am supposed to list his address(although the report format says to) as it seems strange. Possibly a breach of personal information? I am assuming it is legal, or else the administrators would not have recommended it, and I will edit this post if told to provide it. His address is in California.

IV: Follow Through

As can be seen by the last few posts, I let him know that the models were not present and waited three days. He never responded. I approached it as if it were just a mistake and gave him the opportunity to make up for it, but seeing as he made no effort to recompense me for the missing models, nor the broken models, I was definitely ripped off and feel compelled to let the community know. The guy was amicable enough, but I feel people should know in case they trade with him. I submitted a bad reference to his account.
