You can't arbitrarily make demands, however.
You must make every effort to clear it up with him. If he doesn't make any effort to respond, state his position, and negotiate a reasonable settlement, we can take certain actions although it's generally limited to revoking AV status.
Also, please provide a link to the original sales thread so that it can be marked / preserved as part of a trade dispute.
Thanks for your advice.
In the past few days, I have made tremendous effort via PMs and e-mails to clear this case up with the seller. But despite it was clearly indicated he was on the ASC forum for most of the time, no response was received from him.
So there is actually no room for any negotiation or settlement at all.
