People I would like to share with you what happened to me while I was trying to buy something from the marketplace on the forum, so you could be a little more careful next time doing business over styleforum. About a month ago, gut called @tokyocean was selling brand new John Elliott Lima shorts in black - size M. I write him I am interested and located in EU. He was selling them for $110 shipped to the States(he bought them on the rule of next sale) so he replied I have to add $23 for international shipping. That was no problem so we make a deal for $130. I also asked him if he can make an invoice for me and set a value on $50 and I will gift him the rest. So I had a proof of purchase with lower value in case I would have to pay import duties and taxes. A day or two later he said he ordered custom shipping label from USPS and still didn't get it. So I was patiently waiting. More than a week later and still no news so I wrote him an email and get no answers. After few email he replied not to be so paranoid and that the package is on the way to me and I will get the tracking number soon. I was already in doubt because when you ship something you get the tracking number immediately. After almost a month he finally admit that he still didn't send them cause he had some problems with international shipping and the package was returned to him. I just replied that I was already waiting for too long to get the shorts so I want my money back. Now he is not replying yo my emails. I will also post his last few replies via email. What do you guys suggest me to do? I already open a dispute on paypal, but in this case I can forget on $80 I sent him as a gift. Until now I had only positive experiences while doing business with people on the forum. I would apprecciate any help and suggestions. In case he won't reply and return the money he will force me to tell you his right identity. And if there is any thread on the forum about abuses on the marketplace, please direct me there. And his few last email from where I can think that he is not planning to return my money. "To be honest with you, what happened was that when I scheduled a USPS pickup so that they could pick up my package, they did pick it up, but the package was returned to me a few days later since USPS does not allow international packages for pickup. Pickups are only available for domestic delivery. I didn't want to disappoint you, so I decided to sort through this situation on my own. Besides, this is something for me to figure out. I know you've already faced your fair share of frustration, so I didn't want to make it worse for you." "I was actually planning on sending you the shorts, still. Are you sure about this?" "It's not big deal, man. I'll gladly refund you the money. I'm sorry everything didn't go as planned. If we had used eBay to complete our transaction, it would have been a lot smoother." "Wait, you need the shorts as soon as possible, so I should refund your money instead of sending you the shorts? How does that work? Haha, I'm just kidding. Anyway, I'm sorry about everything. If you knew me, you would know that I'm not a deceitful person. I believe in and follow the golden rule. Hey, don't look at that one month as a waste, man. At least we were able to get to know each other more. I had a great time talking to you about certain style trends and whatnot. "I would have told you what happened, but I didn't want to disappoint you, seeing that you already seemed quite upset."
