After my wanted post in dakka dakka swap shop I was contact by member Foster who had 3 drop pods for sale, few messages where passed between us and I asked for pictures which I got and all looked ok, I ALWAYS ask for pictures on forums (hence why I didnt buy anything from Damonlewis). I paid for them in full (45GBP) on the 3rd and at first foster sounded like he was untrusting of me, which given as I was a new dakka user I can understand. Anyways he sent them on the 6th of this month and I waited quite a while as I know what the post is like, I waited till the 10th to ask about them and got a tracking number which doesnt track anything as it is recorded delivery (only confirms a signature when the parcel is recieved).

I was told on the 13th Foster will start a claim with Royal Mail for lost parcel I sent a message saying I dont believe I should wait for Royal Mail to refund Foster then for him to refund me but never got a reply, it is now nearly 2 weeks later and I am sitting here 45pounds down wit no drop pods (I have today ordered 3 brand new from 4tk to go with the two I already have). I started a paypal dispute around the 17th iirc but only escalted it to a claim on the 20th as I had no reply from Foster about me waiting for RM to refund him then me.

I had a msg back last night saying he will refund me after his dinner, so I waited, and waited and sent him another message asking whats happening, no reply, I have even sent him a message before posting this as lost in the post isnt exactly him being a bad seller but the lack of commiuncation and me having to wait 3 weeks for a refund is imo, if I was Foster he would have been refunded the moment the Royal Mail claim was put in.

If he doesn't respond to the paypal claim you'll get your money back.

Others should be wary of buying from him until this is resolved of course.

Yes I understand that I am sometimes a big ebay seller of car parts, so I take pride in selling to a certain level and act the same for when I am buying. Just leaving it to automatically refund me is not a good sales performance.

Yeah "pay when paid" (i.e. the RM claim problem) is pretty much a no-no legally speaking here so you were right to ask fr the refund immediately.

I would put the boot in (set credit-card and paypal on to them). There really isn't any excuse for this sort of shoddy selling in this day and age.

I'm sure it was all an unfortunate confluence of events but it shouldn't leave you out of pocket.

You can not claim on the parcel insurance after all. I had something similar but the seller dithered for so long that they missed the claim window on the insurance and had to refund from their own pocket.

All now resolved, shame it had to get this far but it does seem to be a unfortunate set of events

Did paypal resolve it or did foster resolve it without paypal?

Trade rules: lower rep trades ships 1st. - I ship within 2 business days, if it will be longer I will contact you & explain. - I will NOT lie on customs forms, it's a felony, do not ask me to mark sales as "gifts". Free shipping applies to contiguous US states.

I resolved it without paypal. The reason it was delayed was due to a misassumption on my part when paypal said they were going to take the money from my bank account as opposed to the money they were holding for the transaction. This was not the case and Mark now has his money back.

Yes foster has resolved this himself, so kudos to him, I did recieve a tracking number and it was for recorded delivery which only tracks where it was posted and after it has been signed for so the only tracking info it showed was it being posted, it is a shame as I have now bought 3 new drop pods for 25quid more and have to put them together, I hate putting pods together,,,,

This can be deleted now as it has been resolved to my statisfaction

These were delivered back to myself yesterday, 3 months after they were originally shipped. Not sure why they never made it to their destination.

I had an issue like that. I put the street number on the package wrong and it ended up getting sent back to me. Luckly the guy I was trading with was understanding about it.

If this hadn't taken 3 months to get back to me I'm sure Mark would have still wanted them.

Foster and I agreed to swap buildings for Gaunts.

I sent the buildings - he claimed to be ready to send my gaunts but they never were sent. He was dissatisfied with the exchange as the building was not complete. As a result we agreed to terminate the exchange and for Foster to return my building.

After several snippy messages I ended up without a building and without any gaunts. He never answered this issue.

How can I answer the issue? Your building was sent back to you. I only have your word that the building was never received back and now you are trying to make an issue of it months after it happened. I'm not in the habit of trying to screw over forum members.

Mark and I had an issue but Mark got his money back and the Drop Pods were eventually returned to me. I have had no issues with anyone I have traded with on any other forum which leads me to believe the issue is you not me.

No I didn't it was returned the same way it was sent to me, Royal Mail 1st class. I wasn't willing to be out of pocket due to someone miss informing me on what they had to trade.

Ive just finished a trade with Foster and it went smoothly. I couldn't have asked to trade with someone better.
