Angry Getting ripped off - Discuss

If this isn't an appropriate section, mods could you kindly move it please and thank you. I figured it was since it has to do with someone on this board.

I have a problem with someone on this forum. They owe me money and for what I believe for a long time. Now the fact is, I don't need it right away and can do without it, but its mine and I want it back. It isn't a lot of money when looking at how much airsoft costs and. Personally since this person has never taken the initiative to contact me, as it has always been me pursuing the issue, it makes me believe that he does not care to pay me back, although saying otherwise which is a blatant lie. I have seen him post about spending money or attempting to, although he obviously has a debt to pay off, now personally when I saw this, it pissed me off. I mean honestly, its almost been over 2 months, IMHO thats more than enough time to pay off $100. I have contacted him in early November regarding the status of the money and have gotten reinsurance that he will have it although he hasn't gotten back to me since. I mean sure, I understand shit can hit the fan, unexpected bills come, you trash your car, ect. I'm a nice guy, I don't want to be nasty but I have no problem doing it. I gave him time, 1 week, 2 weeks, a month, and now its been over two. I mean how long is someone suppose to wait? I'm not going to name names, at least not yet and If I knew who this person was, I would have never done business with him to begin with, although he used someone else's account. Now if "you" are reading this, I have sent you a pm and expect a reply promptly or my money in my account. If neither has happened, I'm calling you out, and Im pretty sure your friends and team mates won't be too happy with you being associated with them as I know some of them and they are great people. You sir, are frankly an asshole, and I will burn you faster than hell itself.


I have done probably a lot of transactions, probably in the hundreds as I do a lot of buying and re-selling and I jump on good deal I know I can make money on and I get bored of things quick. Many face to face and many shipped, ranging from $5 to well over $1000. Now, I have been burned twice, however both cases the other party not local, in this case he is. I mean for the guys that do a lot of buying and selling, how often do you get burned and have a transaction went sour? ever feel that you get the shit end of the deal? I mean personally I believe you can get a lot of info based on how someone has shipped a package to you.

My big beef is, I hate it when I pay a lot of money for something and when it arrives the package job is a piece of shit, I mean really, how much does paper stuffing and double taping cost? I will take too much tape over too little, any day.

Anyways Its getting late and I need to sleep.

Discuss - My situation, (what would you do, what do you think about what I;ve done?) Biggest piss offs when doing transactions and transactions form hell.

Throw out a name man...2 months is more than enough if you have been diligent in contacting and asking for payment.

If I can't make a payment, the person knows right away.

No Comms = Fuck You

If someone can't take the time to even update me, they are ripping me off, end of story.

Well you already have 2 of the 5 required steps

1- Try to contact him - check

2- Post a thread about the incident - check

3- Give his name to the community -

4- Give his name to the local mafia as a snitch -

5- Kiss the kids before bedtime -

Or hunt him down and take a finger for a deposit lol. But looks like you've done everything you could to keep it low key and he hasn't caught on, so pressure would be the next step.

What does he owe you $100 for? Not double taping or something? Need a little more info before I can get on the "Head-on-a-Spike" Bandwagon.

You are doing the right things I think so far. You could also contact his teams captain, especially if it's a Snowdragon.

I've done a few transactions in my early times on here. I was very trusting and never got ripped off from out of province. I try to only buy face to face now, from someone I know, after seeing some of the horror stories on here.

Irrelevant. Debts must be settled as a priority, particularly the interest-free variety.

i have been scammed before ($300 lost) and it was a deal too good to be true, i was too excited and forgot to ask for his contact info. He got banned on ASC and lost contact of him since. think twice before buying from non age-verified members.

now i had learned from my mistakes and everytime i make a purhase, I need to get that person's contact info. (address, phone number, real name). All things aside, 99.9% all ASC members here are a pleasure to deal with.

I've dealt with TANK so I can vouche for his character.
He's too nice and too patient, to have this kind of crap
happen to him.

If you need to borrow my m500 8mm shotty to extract
payment via sack shots, let me know
