I think the fact that he told me the items were posted almost 3 weeks ago now, (a week after i sent him the stuff he wanted first)
Failure to forward on the tracking number as promised,
Then it turns out his girlfriend was told to post the gear when he was abroad, but he isnt sure if she has managed to do it yet.
Sounds like he has fallen into a black hole and lost contact with the whole world & his next of kin (not just retrobike users)
This sounds very similar to my story having paid for the item on December 12th and still not yet received it.
I've been watching this thread to see the outcome whilst also waiting for my pm to him to be read. However now that it's becoming increasingly likely that the story may have an unhappy ending I figured I'd speak up as well.
I was pretty confident in dealing with mazdaman as he seems to be an 'established name' on here, much more so than I am. This led me to give him the benefit of the doubt but as it's now a month and a half I wonder if I have been nieve.
I know we all have things that happen which cause us delays in either posting or responding, I have been guilty of this myself at times.
I still hold out hope that this will end well for me and any other people in my position.
As has been said before, a little communication is all we're asking.
Fingers on both hands crossed !
