Issue with seller

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I bought a J. Crew jacket from freewilliee. I sent payment via PayPal on October 13. The jacket has yet to arrive. I have contacted him multiple times via email and SF PM, but he does not respond. Advice on how to proceed?

Is international shipping involved ?

I should also mention that he requested I mark the payment as "gift" so, in the event that I got hosed, I'm basically without recourse unless this guy decides to man up and do the right thing.

^^ You sent a gift payment to a guy you have never dealt with before ?

Yep. I figured he'd been selling on the board and I saw that he had a good eBay feedback score... dumb move, in hindsight.

Persist - also, you might try contacting him via eBay. Maybe he's having tech or personal probs - you never know.

I wouldn't call 97.7% good but I hope things work out for you.

Something about dood's "Business History/backround" suggests a Harvard MBA will not play a part in the future he's planned for himself:

Business Information

History/background
It all started out in high school when I used to want what I couldnt get. To get these things I needed money. Do I sell drugs? Nope, though theres mad money in it, I had a future planned for myself. What I did was help out my fellow classmates with homeworks and test answers when they were stumped. I then started selling soda, chips, and cookies. By senior year I was making a name for myself, always out with the latest shit like those Entermann's Little Bites. Now in college, there's no business in that. So I move on up and sell stuff on eBay...
..........
PS: sorry to be of no help; good luck w/ resolution.

Thanks for the feedback. I did contact him through eBay a few times, so we'll see how it goes. If worst comes to worst, I lost $65. Not a big deal.

35 positive transactions and 0 negative transactions in the past 6 months, I figured that was pretty good.

I only pay as a personal transfer if it is a trusted member, someone I've dealt with before or I'd be willing to eat the amount, which is always less than $100. As for advice, all you can do is wait if he contacts you.

That's a good policy. My transaction met your third criteria, so that's why I don't care too much if I got hosed. It's just a matter of principle. How do people sleep at night knowing they took what isn't theirs (assuming that's what happened here)?

An overall positive score of 97.7 % on only 700 or so feedback is pretty low. Really anything lower than 99.0% and you are rolling the dice in some way. Also the request for Gift is pretty suspicious. Perhaps he is not the shadiest of individuals but one that takes advantage of opportunities. Maybe if you didn't send gift as requested he wouldn't have felt he could get away with it.
