This member is a joke. He bothered me for weeks to ship him a transmission dipstick that I really was about to throw away. But I kept my word and decided to ship it to him when he randomly sent me a $10 paypal payment. Said that should cover it.

Shipping from USA to CAN isn't easy. Not to mention the papers you have to sign and what not to ship the package. It was a small package and it was light.

He paid me $2 for the part and $8 for shipping thinking it was going to cover it. Shipping was $21 and I've made a gesture to get in touch with him but he hasn't responded and I'm still out the $13 he owes me for shipping him what he wanted.

Don't buy from him or sell to him. He's a joke.

Giving everyone the heads up.

Oh he already got his negative feedback... That's a given. I've given it til over the weekend for him to get online and PM me back... He was last active 19hours ago.

He's been online since and has seen my PM.

Grow a pair of nuts Chris and send me my money.

I took the time to box it, bubble wrap it, ship it internationally, deal with customs bullsh!t papers.... I think you owe me more than what you actually do.

"Cheers Chris"..... Bastard.

It's one thing if it's like Trent, Beard, Shane, Justin, Ben.... People I talk to everyday... For me not to care about a measly $13 ($2 part, $21 shipping... Paid me $10)... But for some schmuck to jipp me like that is just stupid.

Well, he didn't PM me but posted on my feedback I left him.

He claimed dial-up was the problem of why he hadn't checked his PM, but how hard is it to take 5-10 mins and let me know whats up even if it is slow. Seriously.

I since have PM'd him that and still no added funds to my paypal or reply.

Thanks Ben! You are as well. I try to give people time and space, but it's since been about 4-5 days and still nothing has happened from it. As far as shipping goes, it usually doesn't cost more than $10 to ship items, I never figured it being that much to ship a small light package. Reason for not checking first is the lines at USPS locations are ridiculous. Even then, most of the time when it costs more, people usually are ok with the difference and just credit me what I had to fork out.

Sellers/Buyers beware of this flake. Thanks.

Well after a few PM's some words were said, I was blamed of course...

But he sent the money and issue has been resolved.

Could have been handled different by both parties. Lesson learned folks.

How is that Tre's fault? You never really know until you go ship the actually item, I had it happen on the F150 board the other day something I bought actually cost 3 more dollars to send than he though. Wasn't a lot of money but its the principle of the matter to compensate him for his time and make sure he's not losing money in the deal.

with paypal, it is always better to send a few more dollars than requested because paypal takes their fees and the seller gets shorted.

Also tre, how did you ship it? i shipped Lazlers corner lights to canada and it was $9 for both of them from USPS

I'm usually ok with frontin the money, but only to the people that I know will I do that again.

**** happens and sometimes it's more, but people want their parts. So I don't mind covering it knowing they'll pay me back.
