Wasn't sure where to post this. Thought I would use a form that has a lot of activity. I wanted to make sure that as many members as possible saw this warning. I have bought and sold my fair share of personal boat items through the years using the classifieds form. I have had nothing but positive experiences and met some very nice people with my dealings until my last for sale item. 3 months ago I advertised a drift sox for sale. Kevin Jamie, Bloodydecks member name "BigK" answered my ad. He said he would like to buy it and would pay for shipping. I was out of town for several weeks and upon my return called him. We agreed on the terms and sent him the drift sox. He text me several days later and said that he had received the drift sox and that he would have the check in the mail asap. It has been over the 3 months now without any payment. I text him several times over the coarse of this time and questioned his word. His answer has been my word is golden and that the check would be in the mail tonight. This post will not be a surprise to Kevin as I told him that I would be warning the members if I didn't receive the payment.

Yeah, I should have got the money upfront. Kevin seemed like a good guy. It's to bad that there are people out there that decide to go down this route. It's not really about the money at this point. I guess I have a little less faith in this world after this experience.

Happy holidays, Outerbanks

There's always 2 sides of a story, but I will say…………..I'm not fronting anyone goods till I'm paid first. I know I'm honest, but I don't know you. You know what I'm saying!

    What you need to do is make a fake Craigslist ad for a really nice boat and list the price for 20k below market value. Put his cell phone number on the ad and say call anytime. My buddies would to do this to my work cell about once a month. It ould drive me crazy but I did appreciate the cleverness.

    I have never had an issue. Seems to be honest people here. I have always sent or recieved without $ and never had a problem. Thanks for calling this guy out. I sure hope he has a really good excuse. Keep us posted. Got anymore Socks? I need one for a 15ton boat. Ill send you the check when I receive it. ;-).
