On April 9 2011 I inquired to SHORTY!!! about some guard items that he had up on a thread in the swap shop. Specifically, I was most interested in his autocannons bitz. He stated that he had two autocannons available for sale and accepted my offer of $10 (USD) shipped for the two. On the morning of April 11 I transferred to his paypal the $10 agreed upon and sent him a PM stating such.

Two weeks later on April 26, and having not yet received the package, I sent him a PM asking when it had been shipped out. I received no response. Some red flags went up in my head. In 9 years of shipping things to myself internationally I have never had a package take this long. But people get busy and perhaps he shipped a little late?

So I waited until the next week on May 2. Still with no response from SHORTY!!! I sent him another PM asking when the package had been shipped. Still no response. With two sent messages and no responses I was fairly certain the package would not be ever heading my way, I waited one more week.

On May 6 I sent him yet another PM giving him a rundown of our communication and explaining that I would be reclaiming my money on PayPal as well a posting a transaction report about him. Well, having read this you know that he did not respond to the latest PM either.

It really pains me to have to make this report about a fellow dakkadakka user. Consdidering that SHORTY!!! was online and was able to post in another thread http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/364556.page#2736557 after I sent to him PMs asking when my package had been shipped, reveals to me this user has no intention of fulfilling his obligations. Quite a shame, though not a suprise, that some users do this sort of thing.

In summary, funds were transferred April 11 2011. On this date communication from SHORTY!!! also ceased. As of this morning I am yet to receive the package.
Below please find the log of our PMs edited to remove personal details.

Hi,

I am interested in your any and all autocannons and autocannon ammo bitz that you have. I will give you a very good price and will pay for international airmail via verified PayPal. Let me know how much your looking for and we can work something out.


SHORTY!!! to Barksdale 2011/04/09 13:38:23

I have 2 autocannons and 2 tripods, but I do not have any AC teams


Thanks


Barksdale to SHORTY!!! 2011/04/09 13:43:15

I am interested in the autocannons only. No need for the tripods! I am in Netherlands so airmail is essential. It won't be much for this weight. How does $10 shipped sound?

Appreciate the time


SHORTY!!! to Barksdale 2011/04/09 13:48:00

Man its such a small package, Im not really sure if if would be worth it for you.


Barksdale to SHORTY!!! 2011/04/09 13:50:42

Totally up to you man. $10 verified PayPal for the two autocannons and airmail to the Netherlands.


SHORTY!!! to Barksdale 2011/04/09 18:02:39

I can do it.

paypal is ..../.com


Barksdale to SHORTY!!! 2011/04/11 03:20:16

Excellent! Please send it to the following:

Appreciate the help.... I need all the autocannons I can get!


SHORTY!!! to Barksdale 2011/04/11 16:28:07

No problem man!


Barksdale to SHORTY!!! 2011/04/26 08:26:32

Hey ....!

Just wondering when you sent out those autocannons? I am yet to receive them! It usually does not take this long with airmail. Let me know and thanks again!


Barksdale to SHORTY!!! 2011/05/02 16:38:27

Hey,

Last week I pm'd you about those autocannons. I have had no response from you yet. When did they go out? Looking forward to getting them as I need them for a tourney at the end of the month! Let me know... Thanks!


Barksdale to SHORTY!!! 2011/05/06 04:31:05

On April 11 you confirmed that you would send me two IG autocannons with airmail to the Netherlands in exchange for 10 (USD). On this date I also transferred the total amount to the PayPal address that you provided to me. On April 26, having received no autocannons from you, I sent you a PM asking when they had been sent out. No response. On May 2, still with no autocannons or word from you, I sent you another PM asking when they had been sent out. No response.

This is the final message I will send to you. If they do not arrive by May 9 I am going to file a claim on PayPal in order to recover my money. I will also be making a transaction report here on dakkadakka.com. If there has been some sort of problem you need to let me know. With no response from you all I can conclude is that you will not be sending these items. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi.

Just a quick update and a small question.

SHORTY!!! has credited me the amount owed on PayPal. However, he just transferred it directly, with no other communication, and did not do it through the dispute process.

My question is: should I end the dispute? Is it possible to just run a counter dispute after I close down mine? I am unsure how to proceed.

Thanks for any help!

I am not sure... is it possible to update the dispute noting that the seller has refunded the money?

Perhaps others can weigh in here...

It is good that he finally refunded you- however as it took the starting of a Paypal dispute to do it, this TR will be marked as "unresolved" in the list (as it was a forced resolution).

Shorty, it would be good if you could post here as well stating your reason for not following through on the trade.

In the end you got what you wanted and were happy with that so why would you not end the dispute?

Just end the dispute through Resolution Centre and be done with it.

How did he send the refund exactly, as in what payment reason was given, if it was a gift then it cant be taken back and i would say close the dispute...otherwise im not sure.

Would be carful got scammed like this last year if the payment was send and a basic payment and you end the dispute he can then start his own dispute for the money and there is nothing you can do about it and paypal will give him his money back and you cannot resart your dispute for the money.

Juat be carful either way its a difficult situation get somthing in writing from him to say the payment is a refund or better still give him this money back and ask him to got through the official dispute refund process that way you are covered

hope this helps and good luck
