Default Need some advice ...

Bought a lot, not expensive ($36), from Terp4life on the 15th. I was told it would be shipped the next business day. It is the 23rd and I haven't received anything and he hasn't been on in 4 days. He seems like a good dude so something came up I'm sure. I don't think he is trying to screw me. However, I could really use the money right now so listing the cards would help or a refund. Do you think I should maybe open a PayPal claim, see if that gets his attention? Like I said I am not mad at all, just want to know what's up so figure this will get his attention. Any suggestions ... ?

No dc?

Shoot him an email, first. One thing not to be here, but most likely checking email.

Just wait till the new year man. You said yourself you don't think he is scamming you. Not only is shipping going to be slower than normal but he probably isn't even at his home base anymore.

365 iTrader experience and you need to ask those rookie questions? By now, you should be able to handle yo' bid-ness without the help of the peanut gallery. If two weeks or so after the stated shipping date nothing has arrived, then be concerned. After three weeks or so of not receiving anything or returned PMs, call that mo' fo' out. Otherwise, just chill, homie. All those fruit cakes being shipped out to poor unsuspecting families are clogging up the system.

No excuse for it. He had no problem contacting you to send Paypal info and make false promises. The guy hasnt come through on his end of the deal and has no problem ignoring you for whatever reason. Im always amazed at how members have all the time in the world to complete a deal and take the money yet things always happen once they have your money. Its the Holidays and we are all busy. You found time to pay him and he should find time to keep his commitment. I appreciate you making us aware of another terribly slow shipper on here.

Agreed. I recieved cards in the mail yesterday and I have cards at my post office now, which means they will be here tomorrow. Not sure why everyone else is having problems. All the cards I have purchased or sold in the last week have arrived safe and sound with no delays what so ever.

Im not mad at this guy at all. And he hasn't even been on to ignore my pms last time I checked. Just think that 8 days after I paid I should have a DC # or been contacted, unless something came up. Hopefully he contacts me soon so I can get my cards. Thanks for the input guys.

You realize the PMs go to his email though right? He doesnt have to log in to see the PMs you are sending to him. Point is you guys had an agreement and he has not held his end.

you can choose not to have emails sent to your email. but i do not agree with holiday shipping...it is slower, but not that slow.

i bought things from the US a week ago, and it all arrived today, via first class intl, the slowest option with tracking. and i shipped last monday for ebay sales and positive feedback has been left for me already.

Just some proof to back up my statements above. I bought these friday night from a member here. I have them in hand already and I live half way across the country from him. Not sure why everyone is having problems.

Talked to the member. It took 4 days to print the label and 6 days to ship. Wasn't what I had hoped but oh well.

I sold a card on Ebay that was paid for on the 21st, sent it out on the 22nd, and it arrived on the 24th. Weird huh?

i purchased a lot on ebay on the 13th and he/she still hasnt even loaded any tracking numbers? i guess when you dont spell superfractor lot correctly and have 4 nice bgs cards in a lot and it sell for 25 bucks i guess that means you dont have to send it? or with this seller anyway
