I’ve had a similar incident on 24 hr Campfire but over a $2200 Blaser rifle, and I didn’t have a phone number (and he was in Maine). I ended up getting the gun eventually and didn’t trash his reputation on the message board. He’s tried to sell me a couple more guns since, and I told him flat out he sucked as a seller.

If you’re still just relying on PM and haven’t reached out via call or text, in my opinion, this is partly on you. Not every gets on to check PM’s regularly, but most everyone lives and dies by their cell phone. :anyone:
I do the first parts of my deals thru PMs so there is a written record. If they do not respond to PMs, I figure something is wrong.

Well I'm just saying that I was wrong in the way I jumped the gun . As far as telling him. communication goes a long way, I did that before I originally created the original thread. The phone number is a text subscription service. It a way to communicate via the web without using a phone.

I had reservations on the deal from the get go, I decided to take a chance. It went down hill shortly after the payment. He did not answer any more messages and did not send me any tracking information like he said he would. But it showed up today. Would I do business with him again, Nope. Very poor way to do business.

dlbleak was very helpful, a stand up guy in my book. As a moderator his concern was for the members of this site and has their back as much as he can if there is any shady business. So I say thank you Mr. dlbleak in your effort to see this through.

Yep. Darren is one stand-up guy. One of the best.
