Well folks I was wondering about some of you bad trading/buying experiences....heres mine and unfortunately was the second trade i did on this board
This all started back in early JUNE
I’ve had a unfortunate and extremely bad trade with someone that frequents forums. He is known at SSG as Wonderboy and at RS as Wonderboy79. He had a post up at SSG about wanting a R2D2 holographic leia Commtech figure. here is a link to that thread
I responded to this thread and we worked out a trade on AOL instant messenger. Unfortunately I don’t have any emails actually confirming the trade we set up. But here is the story as it goes. I caught wonderboy79 on AOL instant messenger and worked out a trade for my Commtech r2d2 momc and luke commtech
moc for his POTJ Amanaman, Saga Chancellor Palpatine plus i sent a money order for $11.00 for a Luke Bespin and Darth Vader Bespin Figures. I sent out the next day and he told me that he sent out the package the very next day also. Well he didn’t use a tracking number or insure my package as i did his. He recieved mine. But the next day he claims his package that was sent to me
got returned by mistake because he put 418 instead of 413 on my address. Well that at first made me suspious. So he said I’ll send it out the next day which was Saturday.So I wait patiently all week and NO PACKAGE now keep in mind i’ve made trades with people in Wonderboy’s area who sent out the packages after he “claims” he sent mine out.Yet I still recieved the other
people’s packages but still haven’t got Wonderboys package. So this made me more suspicious. Then one night I IM him 9 times to ask about the situation he ignores my IM’s so i go onto another name and IM him and he immedietly responds and to his surprise it was me. Then I ask him if he has a Tatooine
Skiff and Skiff guards. He tells me he can aquire one for $15! Which as you know is a awesome price for the skiff plus 7 bucks for the guards. He kept promising that all was well and reassuringme he was not ripping me off and it was the post office fault.. I thought “well maybe”..then he asks me if i have any sneak preview clonetroopers. I tell him i can buy some at wal mart
where i purchased 12 of them for him I also picked up 2 han endors. He wanted all 14 figures. Well I told him to just pay me the price minus $25 for the skiff and guards. So he owed me $67 . He told me the next day on AOL instant messenger that he was going to pay me using pay pal that night. Then he did
it again the next night and then again the next night. He was online a long time each time we talked and never paid me like he promised. Also I tried to get his address and telephone number and it was ignored. I asked him 6 different times to email me his address and telephone number but it never happened. Next he tells me he is going to FED EX next day deliver with
saturday delivery my Skiff and Guards, Saturday came and NO package. Monday came today NO PACKAGE. Well I kept repeatedly asking him three things in emails. I kept sending him emails and when checking the status i saw that
someone had read them. He claims someone else using his account. I kept email him the same request hoping to get some kind of answer. 1 for his address and telephone number(as i had lost them in an IM) 2. When was He going to pay me for the 12 clonetroopers he asked me to pick up and 3. When was he going to send the Tatooine Skiff and Skiff Guards . I went to the forum threads he was on at rebelscum and SSG and repeatedly posted in them how i need this info and for him to answer me and asking if he was a good trader.. Well my persistance in trying to aquire my stuff from the trade supposedly ****ed him off very much as I was bugging him. He was very bad with communication and
constantly made false promises and reassuring that was very misleading and none of what he said every got done. I have absolutely no RESULTS at all. He claims i ruined his thread as RS. Where after he posted a email from another person(who emailed him) i've had serious trouble with in the flesh everyone started jumping on me in posts thinking i was a scalper. So I told them off and if they had a problem pm me for my address and number. I got depicted over there as a Emenim Wanna be because I work for a record label that has Rap Artists signed and some of them are from Long Beach/ Compton. Of coarse i'm friends with these people. So when i said something along the lines of next time i'm out there in LA to make some moves I'll come over and get my figures back and I never threatened him or even type anything like that. I said some mean stuff and it was when i got mad so I edited them all blank later when i had a cool head. He seems to think this was a admission of guilt...i was just thinking better and decided i shouldn't have been mean. Well he blew all up saying his dad and mom who are "cops" said my butt would be in a sling and that what i had done was a "Federal Offense". So all his buddies on his bandwagon thread starting bashing on me (which they still do to this day seeing as i don't post there anymore cause its a waste) Truth is none of them knew any of the story except that I wanted a skiff. They didn't care no matter what I was in the wrong and thats it. According to them I’m obessive for being persistant.Well I was only trying to get himto address the stuff i repeatedly ask that he wouldn’t do. Well we seem to have gotten back to a status of "cool" in the IMs after all this. He told me he was sending the skiff first and yadda yadda yadda. I guess he's busy cause its hard to get any email response at all after days....even through he posts at forums still at RS every once in awhile. I still haven't recieved one item...This has been a tremendous headache and I've hated every second of it. I really hope i could get a skiff and amanaman but my intuition(spelling?) tells me that I probably won't.....but i wish i could..I was suppose to get something in the mail this week...but haven't and as for the "first" "sent" package I guess he's calling it lost but i've been trading years and never lost a package and always have insurance.I'm not posting this to bash Wonderboy which he'll probably take it as he seems really cool in the IMs and all but nothing is worth this...well maybe a skiff... but just to share a big headache. I have two more i'll put on this thread later....
Any of you ever have a headache of a problem like this share your story.
