    No I had it right. I'm less trusting. I bet I don't get burned as often as you! F/F = Firefighter

    well I for one want to know who it is so I can decide for myself if I want to do business with them or if maybe I have some info I can pass along regarding them. 2 weeks is too long without any communication let alone 2 months. there's a reason I've never been burned on this site having made numerous transactions

    it is - and the seller is foolish if he thinks this is going to fade away - I am wondering if our OP has heard anything in the last day or two from him...? @sonoramic - what's happening with this?

    I agree man, but at the time, and in my "defense" I didn't know the friends and family thing exempted you from being able to file a grievance. I know now though.....

    I don't believe they have. I've looked at their profile, and it has been a while. Yeah, I thought of the possibility that something bad/health wise could have happened to the dude....... not sure though, and yeah, it still sux I don't have what I paid for.

    I haven't heard a peep. As mentioned, I even sent him a link to this thread via the IM (Conversation) thread that I had with him from the beginning of this deal. I also sent an email to the address that was noted on the paypal account. I should mention this also. I did buy something off of this same individual before, and had no problems. It was as he said and it was a clean deal, which is why I had no issue with doing business with him again on this deal...... unfortunately, that didn't work out.... so far.

      I have not given much thought about the friend and family deal, but I have noticed the last several purchases I have made the seller requested to be paid that way. I guess they figured out that I have no recourse if the purchase didn't go well
      Thanks for sharing the information

        You made it pretty easy to figure out who the seller is!

        FF = firefighter,,,, And he gets burned less because he's less trusting and will let a deal go rather then get burnt. 20 years as a Det. in NYC I know what he means....I think....lol

        Yup your probably right. The job has taught me to be suspicious of everyone and not trust anyone, till my trust is earned. Not sure it's a good thing. But it is what it is.

            After seeing your conversation with the seller and the sudden absence of him on the forum there just might
            a legitimate reason you haven't heard from him but that's just a hunch. I hope you get your parts or your cash either way.

              Thanks everyone..... not really sure what to do at this point. Im tearing apart a parts car that has a pair on them....ill just send them to my buddy. I wanted these, because I knew I wouldnt have a chance to get mine off for a little while.....well, a "little while" has passed. Ill wait a little longer, and hope to hear from him.....maybe until the end of the month, after that, ill "out him" and possibly go ahead and give negative seller feedback.....

              Thanks again for all the help and comments.

              Maybe there's a member here close enough to check
              on him and see what's up?

              I noticed someone made the comment, "hope you're feeling better", on his profile.

              Perhaps he is incapacitated.

              My opinion....judging the conversatio, is that there may be a legitimate reason. Get the plates u need from the parts car you got, and get a refund from seller. Its only $40 should be no issues. Hope it gets resolved.

                if you say so - you're both cynical and I am sure you have perfectly valid reasons for it ...I think that it has a lot to do with experiences (obviously) and, to some degree, your location. I grew up in, and moved to, a small town. Maybe I've been really lucky as I really can't remember a deal that went so bad I felt like I had been ripped off - so I haven't learned to be distrusting. Are there people in my past that I wish I had not trusted to start with - you betcha, but I still believe that, by and large, people are mostly good and should be given the benefit of the doubt. To each his own though, viva la differance'.. 'tis what makes the world go 'round.
