I'll admit that I said I would ship the package on Tuesday, but due to personal issues, I was unable to. I informed Gary of this and decided to wait until the $20 arrived before actually shipping. The conversations following this led me to be suspicious and I did some research and this is what I've discovered. He has a very obvious repeating past of this type of action.
If I hadn't found these other complaints against him, I probably would have chalked it up to miscommunication and bad luck. It's the repeated pattern that prompted me to bring this to the attention of the people on this forum.
Outline of e-mail communications.
7/3, i give you my addresses so you can decide where you want to pick it up. You inform me on the 4th that you will let me know the next day when you will be coming
7/7 - you inform me that you'd rather me ship them (4 days pass before you decide you would rather me ship them)
7/10 - you inform me that the money order has been mailed (3 days pass before you mail the money order)
7/12 - the tracking # you provided is still not valid
7/13 - you inform me about your friend wanting the pegs
7/13 - i finally get the money order
7/17- you tell me the $20 has been mailed. I decide to wait until the $20 arrives before shipping
7/21- still waiting for the $20, but I mail the package anyway on good faith
7/25 - package signed for at 4:47 pm. I called the post office and they claim the package was delivered to the appropriate address
What a way to cover up, you taking 2 weeks to ship out what i have paid for already.
Til now i still have not received what i payed for. Just because you've dug up some dirt, you think you could screw me over.
You should think twice before you act. I have all the proof you need. Don't try to mask your dishonstly by bashing me.
The links you post are stories blown. And i have the police officer in charge to back me.
You've lied to me several times over the course of our whole deal. I was very patient in waiting for you. I just dont like being lied to.
You had the $60 for the rear cowl for almost a week before i told you that i wanted the pegs also. Why didnt you ship then? You also claimed you didnt get the money order. But the tracking shows, they made 1 deliver attempt and left a notice (during this time you claimed to have seen no sign of it) I didnt hear from you for 4 days after you recieved the payment.
Im not here ripping anyone off. If i need references i can call my accusers to aid me.
What kind of scammer does that make me?
So dont even try to ruin my stay here at 600rr.net because your trying to hide all of your dishonestly.
I've sent you $80 total. I've recieved nothing!
Unlike on anandtech, i can defend myself here and i intend to. SOB's on that forum ripped me off for close to $2,000 with their false paypal claims.
Im here on this forum as legit as ever, and your trying to bring up that old stuff to hide the fact that you're getting over on me.
If any mods would like to see every email that i'ved recieved and sent to Mr. Richardson Please pm me. I can also scan the reciepts and money order reciept.
Its funny how you pulled this card after i asked for a refund for you not sending me the stuff i bought from you.
You call me a scammer and i've still not recieved anything.
Plainly put in english in your little timeline that you were waiting for the $20 to ship my stuff. So you must have gotten the $20 because you shipped the stuff.
What gives.... explain yourself.
I told you to call me today so that we can conference call the post office. But you refused. You also said you called the post office last night they told you someone signed for the package. What a lie! who signed for it? who did you speak to?
