So, so far we have:
I just tried to provide all the details they wanted which included receipts, the item i expected to receive and by when and my attempts to communicate with the seller. Surprisingly, I didn't meet much resistance when trying to lodge the dispute but maybe that only occurs during the dispute (?)
Filed my chargeback with my bank and sent in all the details I could provide. Sigh, can't believe it has come to this. All Drew had to do was provide periodic updates in the form of spreadsheet updates but he couldn't even be bothered doing that.
I'm going to the USA on Dec 11th-Jan 13th and am, at the moment basically clueless about what to do and where to go. All I know is that I'll be at Los Angeles first but from then on is still pretty much unplanned.
I have more or less a month, so please recommend me places to stay, must go destinations and activities!
