I was taken by an HF member :(

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Long story short- Purchased a pair of Diesel Zathan 8BEs from HF member Aevis on May 30th, 2009; for 33 days following, his communication via PM was sporadic, and of course, no jeans sent. In one PM on Jun 20th, he actually stated:

"Holy shit bro, I am soooo sorry. I've been so caught up with school that I forgot to ship out the jeans. I'm a med student and clinical rotations are a bitch. I'm going to ship them out ASAP. Please forgive me, I know it's inexcusable but I will ship them out rest assured."

And then all communication stopped after that.

33 days passed from original purchase date, and since he wasn't replying anymore, I opened a Paypal dispute as my window of opportunity was drawing to a close. He failed to acknowledge the dispute and Paypal closed the claim in my favor, but... Surprise! No funds to recover, of course.

So, it's a $200 lesson learned for me, which is fine; it's not a huge amount of money, nor is it the end of the world. However, I'm still not too pleased none the less. I am posting this here and passing this along in hopes of saving someone else from making the same mistake.

Thanks,

Randy

Sorry to hear about this. Let's see if we can clear this up. I have sent Aevis a pm and I have forwarded it to you.
