Anybody know STW member Watsontony?
wow guys i have had NO internet access for nearly a week! The pedals have been sent! Two of you have paid for the bars so do one of you want a refund or both? and the pinkbike ban was from selling a bike and then the buyer wanting a refund after two months because a crack had appeared. I could of probs used a friends or public computer to contact you guys but to be honest i didn’t think it was such an issue. wow how i was wrong. Bit of an over reaction! i defo ain’t a scamer why the **** would try and rip the stw massive off for some freaking pedals and some bars. let me know weather u want bars or refunds!

You have to admit there was a ‘perfect storm’ brewing indicating that you were up to no good.
or just loads of people jumping to the wrong conclusions becasue they had the expectations that they were dealing with a mailorder shop rather than a bloke with other things going on in his life?
post up the emails watsontony!Posted 4 years agotomhowardSubscriber
No comms for a week (weve only just got to a week now) is fine to maybe send the seller a polite mail asking if there had been any hold ups, not running on here snooping around for addresses and phone numbers. The
blind panictwitching started after 3 working days.
Remember you are dealing with people, not online megashops.Posted 4 years ago
I sent Tony several emails, tried his phone, tried to contact him through ebay all to no avail. I’m sorry that it has come to this but think that there was sufficient evidence for me to become concerned. There is culpability on all sides, while I understand that the double payment may have caused a bit of confusion his end (although I have to ask why a double payment was allowed to happen, poor comms?)but we both got emails saying that payment had been revieved and the goods would be dispatched asap! I can also think of no reason why the at least the pedals could not have been dispatched when promised. All this, plus the Pinkbike information did make me think something was wrong. For this reason I aired my thoughts on the forum, rightly or wrongly, but it was posted in good faith by Chopchop, i.e. if you know Tony ask him to get in touch. Up until this afternoon I was of the belief that I was being scammed, for the reasons above, and for that reason i placed a winning bid on his shocks advertised on ebay, my rational being that I didn’t want anyone else to get stung. In retrospect, and with the value of hindsite not with me, I appreciate that this was wrong, but again, to me it was a well intentioned action. I have emailed tony asking him to get in touch so that I can speak to him in person re this.Posted 4 years agotoys19Member
Yup me too, I had a bloke do the exact same to me on another forum a few years ago. It was a month old advert, I had gone away for two weeks. He posted on my thread that he wanted it, already had my pp from a previous transaction so he paid without any reply from me, then three days later started a witch hunt. When I came back from hols, checked my emails (yes remember those days, this was only 5 years ago) and found a shit storm. I refunded him straight away, he said he wanted the headset anyway, but no way would I deal with him again.Posted 4 years ago

But why did two people get emails saying they would be posted?
I’m confused, if I paid for something and then found out so did someone else id be pretty miffed too.
Watsup this isnt aimed at you specifically just to say I think the op and exup acted on what evidence they have.
The pinkbike ban is coincidental but wouldn’t have felt like that to me as the buyer.Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
All this over a few quids worth of stuff? ‘ave a word, the lot of you.
STW towers must be getting a wee bit cheesed off with all the Classified hassle, and I would guess that they see very little return from it.
I would guess the clock is ticking, and pay for access to the Classifieds is only a short while away.Posted 4 years ago
