So I agreed to buy a fishing rod from a member June 10th. Since I was going through southern cal to San Diego for a 3 day trip, we agreed I would pick up the rod at his place.
Four days prior to pickup (trip was July 24th), he notified me the rod was locked up in his moms storage locker and he had no way of getting it. He offered to loan me a rod, ship the rod to me although it would be two weeks after my trip or a refund. I chose a refund and he agreed.
It took me until Sept 4th to get a partial refund after 4 request, each time a different excuse. Im still owed $125 and that was promised a couple days after September 4th and have yet to see anything. Text message went unanswered.
Just want to get some feedback ..I think 2 months to get repaid is not ok..Im not going to out him on here yet.

Save another member from the hassle...

If he stopped responding on the 4th... and its already the 21st...

Odds are you're going to be out $125...

If you paid with PayPal I’d have them repo your $. They seem to like doing it. Then they get another fee when you spend the money again. Bummer about the $ though.

Why did you pay for the rod before getting the rod in your hands. Out the clown with contact info. I hope you get your money back.

I had an issue similar to this with a jig purchase. It was finally resolved when I got the BD’s community involved. It is absolutely amazing how much pressure the membership can exert on those not fulfilling their obligations.

Enough is enough already......post him up and get him recognized.

I totally understand some situations that just plain happen that we almost never anticipate.

Like the time my kid took a reel I had sold and threw it in the recycle bin because I had it in a plain brown box ready to ship. It was recycle day and by the time it was figured out the truck had already come through. At that point I became a crook. But, the money should be returned ASAP no matter what.

We are actually a small community that eventually deal with one another if we are active in the sport, so we need to not burn any bridges.

What did you think would happen when you started the thread? Mercy? Shame him with the threat of outing his behavior? Has it worked yet? Did you get your money?
