For all intensive purposes he has been good, and his reputation has been good. I just feel like this has been dragging on to long and now he's giving me the cold shoulder. I hope it can resolved.
As far as his commitment after being done when he ships it until there's a transfer of goods, the responsibility still dwells in the seller, (I know he didn't) but what if the person ships a box of rocks to some bogus address?
The original deal was $300 shipped, so no insurance was discussed unfortunately.
