2 weeks & still waiting!!!

I purchased an ecu from G*Star69 3 weeks ago.

It has not been delivered yet, last time I spoke with him (last week) he said he would post ASAP.

He is now not returning phone calls or sms's.

The funny thing is, his got a pretty good trader rating (that's why I bought it from him in the first place).

Does anyone on here know him personally?

Tks

If things don't work out, remember to use the trader rating system so others can see there have been problems with the seller. Might save another members wallet. Hopefully it does end up well.

Ok guys, I have been speaking with auspost and they offer a COD method.
Basically here is the link check it out:
http://auspost.com.au/business/bill-...-delivery.html

For mine, this is the only way I will purchase anything from here again.
Goods come, inspect & buy, simple as that.

What you guys reckon?

COD isnt realy any safer they could just send you a box with a brick in it and you cant open it before you pay.

Sometimes it will be just easier buying it through ebay and using paypal then your covered by paypal protection.

Also always get sent stuff with registerd post then you can track your parcel ots only $3 extra to have this option beats my why people dont use it

I had look at his feedback he seems legit and maybe there might be a problem on his side but still atleast he should update you with what is going on.

I know what its like. Ive lost money a couple of times on ebay and another forum, the latter being $400. Pay for the goods, they keep the money, and you get nothing. They're b*******s.

Has not happened to me for quite a while now thankfully.

keep hearing the same story, people getting fried on here by scum... idea, why don't you just ring the workshops directly, especially for something like a standard ecu, the guys would have a million laying around at the same if not cheaper price.

whats this blokes name? lalor aint that big you know

C.O.D is shocking for sellers because what happens if the buyer changes his mind and you then have have to pay return postage to get the item back

I would be ashamed if I even thought I had dudded someone. Even stuff that isn't my fault I try and fix. The only thing worth anything is your reputation as a decent person.

pls stop asking people, myself incl, to call or go see this bloke.

YOU keep calling him and when you get through have a decent talk and find out what's happening to your parts

That's no excuse to just ignore the guy, if he was having 'issues' the least he could do was pick up the phone and explain to it to his customers.

It's bad business, I say give it another week and if it still hasn't arrived I'd be asking for a refund PLUS whatever you paid for.

No offence, but it's pretty hard to get scammed on eBay or you're doing something wrong, their feedback system is excellent and with PayPal Buyer Protection you really can't lose...

It's not? Recently got a roadworthy inspection done, the mechanics ****ed it up twice so I went back and got a refund plus a new roadworthy.

At the end of the day it's his reputation he is ruining, 4 weeks is a joke, nobody should have to wait that long for a part without an explaination.
