First off, this isnt an attack on the member. Secondly, the member will remain nameless. Ill refer to the member as "Dave"(not thier actual name or username).
On July 3rd, I put a sale up with some movies.
On July 5th, "Dave" sent me a message wanting 2 movies. We agreed on the price, and exchanged information. "Dave" informed me he was going to send me a money order. I agreed.
On July 8th, I asked if he had sent the money order yet? I was informed, "yes i just got back from putting in the mail box"
I ask him if he has an idea as to how long it will take for the money order to reach Canada. He guesses about a week, then asks, "did i need special postage at all becasue you need it to get stickers on ns"
I tell him I dont know what the postage is for a letter to get from the US to Canada.
He sends me a PM telling me, "i think i messed up on the postage"
I ask him what he plans on doing about it?
He said once he gets it back, he will resend it.
He informs me he hasnt recieved it back. Now he wants to know if I have any posters for sale.
I ask him he he has gotten the money order back yet. I suggest he sends another one out in the mean time, and just cashes back the original when he recieves it back.
I remind him not to forget the postage.
He replies with, "i wont like what postage will i need if yuo don't now i will ask the post office."- In my opinion, this is sounding shady alrady. He shoudl be asking the post office, not me.
*no conversation between the 14th until now.
I ask him whats going on with the money order. No reply.
I ask again.
He claims he just put it in the mail. He tells me if i dont get this one, he will send cash. (Im nott comfortable with cash-gets lost/stolen easliy)
I ask him if he remembered to put on the proper postage?
He says, "uhhhh i dont remember". He then asks me, "i going to smoke weed brb you smoke"
I inform him I dont smoke.
He asks me If i recieved the money order yet.
I tell him no.
He tells me he will pay me 5$ extra for waiting so long. Im thinking, how is he going to pay extra, has ne not sent the money?
I tell him to give it a few more days.
He seems to be getting frantic, always telling me how hes going to pay me because hes "not cheap like that"
I ask if he remembered the proper postage.
He says, "I dont remember"
I inform him I havent recieved payment.
he replies, "no what dude going to the post offiuce and getting it right now"
^Getting what? The money order? I ask for clairification, but no reply.
He asks me how my summer is, and what elevation I live at. Between more random questions, he throws in, "ooo ok so wait till wednesday and if you dont get it are u still going to ship it and i u still get ur money and i pay u like 30 in stead of 25"
so now hes asking me to ship without recieving payment!
I PM him saying no way, im not shipping without a payment.
Im wondering if this seems sketchy to you. Hes not on the good buyers list, or NSTOR file. He doesnt seem to have any references on NS either. There is also a huge communication problem. The majority of his messages are difficult to understand, and require me to ask what he meant, often 2 times. we have exchanged 322 messages over this. It should have only required 20 at most.
Just seems a little odd, how he want me to send the payment, and "forgets" if he put the proper postage on.
Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.
