I PM'd him Sunday afternoon, and he didn't respond, although I can clearly see he's been on ASC at least twice now without responding to my PMs. Granted, I'm not worried yet, but I always wonder whenever I see these threads when the appropriate time to complain is.
and the answer is NEVER ... unless it become a trade dispute and the agreement is breached.
Protect yourself.. get full information about the person you are trading with , and call them to discuss the deal ..
make an agreement regarding payment and shipping date. and then confirm it by e-mail.
If you are comfortable at that point , send the money , and then shut the fuck up and wait .. If you don't have a tracking number 2 days after the agreed shipping date.
Send an e-mail requesting the tracking number . A day after that if nothing.. then Call and ask for the tracking number.
2 days after that , if nothing , send an e-mail requesting your money back as at that point the seller is in breach of your agreement.
If you do not immediately receive a tracking number indicating the item is shipped ( and check and make sure it's not a bogus # ) or a refund..
call the police as you have just been scammed
Once you have called the police , then post on here the issue with the seller .. stating that the police have been called , and leave negative feedback indicating that the seller breached your agreement and scammed you.
Doing anything else is akin to pissing into a headwind... you will get pissed on
