Is it name and shame time – no item, no replies, no refund
Hi all, bought something from here on 21st Dec, item has not shown up which is fair enough due to xmas and bank holidays etc but the seller refuses to respond to emails.
He is still trading on here buying and posting even up till a few minutes ago but wont answer emails or explain when the item was posted or if there are any problems.
Should I name and shame ????????? but what else can one do?Posted 7 years agonukeSubscriber
It’s only been just over a week…and that’s been over the Christmas week with 2 bank holidays. So, IMO, no, it’s not time to name and shame.
Plus from the looks of it the seller has been on STW for quite some time with plenty of posts and not just on the classifieds. Personally I’d give them benefit of the doubt.Posted 7 years agonukeSubscriber
Agreed…comms is key to an easy transaction and a few seconds to answer an email can save a whole load of grief so yes I think its unfortunate that they haven’t taken the time to respond to you. However, at this time, don’t think it can be said you’ve been ripped off.Posted 7 years ago
yup, mailed direct few times over last 5 days and guess what – NO REPLY !
like I say, unless you cant get access to email then fair enough but to be posting on here clearly demonstrates access to www so can only conclude something is not right – rip off / con or just out of order / playing games ???
I just want the item or my money nothing more !Posted 7 years agoMoseyMTBMember
I’m confused, I’ve got things still due from mid December as the post isn’t caught up yet.
Also maybe like mr they have been off work since the 23rd and been away with family hence no Internet.
If I had bought something on the 21st I wouldn’t be expecting it till early January.Posted 7 years agoSTATOMember
guess so, then I will have to conclude that the item never was for sale and to advertise such was a way to obtain money by deception !
Nothing else one can do.
Well reading that I conclude your an idiot.
If they are the sort of person who sells items they dont have why would they still be trading? sensible thing for them to do would be rip everyone off using a fake email and then do a runner, not hang around.Posted 7 years ago
From that id suggest they are the reputable ones in this deal and youve just annoyed him by e-mailing him everyday over christmas so he has just decided to ignore you. The item is probabaly in the post and he just dosnt want anything more to do with you.ChrisAMember
Just in the interest of balance, I ordered an X0 rear mech on 22nd dec from crc and bought something off eBay and paid on the 22nd Neither of which are here yet that I thought might have been. The crc order was dispatched pre Christmas though so the post definitely hasn’t caught up yet.
It does seem on the classifieds these days that these posts are coming up more frequently though.Posted 7 years agoiaincSubscriber
I sold something on the classifieds the other week and posted it to the seller on 13th Dec and he’s still not got it.
We are however in regular email contact and if it’s not with him this weekend I’ll be refunding him ‘cos it’s not his fault if it’s lost (low value item at £18)Posted 7 years ago
Thanks for this Chris, strong words, much appreciated. No e-mail btw.
I got your money in my account on the 24th, around the time of a significant event…
I also see you didn’t see fit to tell everyone about the seatpost clamp that took you completely forgot about and took weeks to send to me 😳 , which has a certain irony 😈
It’s Christmas, (yes, really!) the post is slow, I may not have had a chance to get it off to you straight away.
Calm down dear, it’s only a seatpost!Posted 7 years ago
Exactly legend ! Quite rightly as so many of you have posted,I’m not really expecting it but its the communication issue which is just rude,lazy or deceitful given the ‘seller’is posting this eve on stw.Posted 7 years ago
So why no replies to my mails,what is there to hide……

Bit embarrassing for seller as its been aired in the open but can see why OP has felt it necessary to as a last resort open this thread. Just one word of warning you have sent him the cash as a ‘gift’ in order to evade fees one would assume. Gift=given of free will therfore not dishonetly obtained? Sorry to be devils advocate but proves the value of paying Paypal fees sometimes.Posted 7 years agoChunkyMTBMember
I must admit, I don’t have CRC/Wiggle type dispatch services – no packing dept, post dept… It’s a few clicks to advertise an item, but a bit more work to get it on it’s way to the buyer, plus there is having a job and life also…
These kinds of hissy fit threads seem to be very trendy at the moment..Posted 7 years ago
