Deadbeat: 509thPara

Post by ancientsociety » Tue Nov 17, 2015 9:24 pm

TL;DR: Had a deal with 50thPara that basically boils down to me asking for a MO from a him, him agreeing but sending me a personal check (which wasn't completely filled out either). When I asked about it and told him to send me an MO, he made excuses for how he couldn't get one and basically said I have to deposit it and wait. I did end this deal as it was too much hassle and I absolutely don't take checks. I ended up sending him his voided check back via certified, so now I'm out money

The Maxim and Partisans are NIB. The ATG is 3-man crew ONLY, no ATG (I used it elsewhere). The Italian Sniper and Flamethrower are single figures from the Italian Airborne Special Weapons blister.

Did you want to send a postal money order? I'd prefer Paypal honestly

Actually just saw your post - any chance you'd want to trade the Brit Airborne Jeeps for my stuff?

Just following up on this. I'm assuming you didn't want to trade, but did you send out the MO? Thanks

Jeremy ,

The funds were sent Monday , and it was not in my mail box Monday
evening when I picked up my mail . Thats the US Postal system , sometimes
it takes two weeks for a letter to reach the other side of town . We say here the
postal carriers pick up the mail and sleep with it for a week before the take it
back to the main Office .

Any way , please give it a few more days . Also I do not look a this site every day ,
you can reach me at (EMAIL DELETED) its faster .

Thanks ,

Thomas

It was meant as an FYI to keep you updated, not an accusation, which is why I began it "just letting you know"

Thomas,

Received your letter today. However, you included a personal check which I don't accept. I state clearly in my signature that I only accept Paypal and USPS money orders and I also asked you to send a money order in our PMs. I will void this check and return it to you but you need to send me a USPS money order for these miniatures.

Never agreed to take a check and I mentioned a MO several times via PM and you mentioned nothing about your inability to provide me with one. If we have had deals before, I have no refs to reference and don't recall it. In any case, I no longer accept checks as I have had checks bounce for trades online which costs me money. At this point, this deal is way too much hassle than its worth. I've returned your voided check to you and will move on to another party.
Trading Guidelines:
1. Lower rating ships first - even if I am purchasing.
2. If you agree to buy something, you have 72hrs. in which to pay. If payment is not received in 72hrs., I will automatically post a Non-Payment/Backout thread.
3. Refs are left upon positive receipt of goods, NEVER beforehand!
4. I accept Paypal & USPS money orders and charge for shipping AT COST. I make no profit from it.
5. I trade NIB/new models at retail.
