This thread isn't really calling him out, and I'm reluctant to post this, but I just would like someone who knew him personally to let me know what was going on or to tell him to get back to me. I need my boots to ski.
I sent my payment to him for the boots on October 28th, and I still don't know for sure if they have actually shipped or not. From what I was told, there were delays in shipping it, but he assured me that they were shipped. However, I haven't received the tracking number he said he would give me.
His last login was November 15th, and his last response was November 12th. In between that, I sent him a PM about the tracking number on Nov. 13th, which was marked as read but not responded to.
Hopefully it's just a miscommunication/legitimate delay and not him trying to pull something, as that would be a hassle and something I wouldn't want to deal with.
