Seller Dispute 4 months SERENITY NOW!

If this isn't an right section, mods could you kindly move it please and thank you in advance. As this directly involves a member of the forum I thought it was the right section.

***Seller has IM'd with a tracking number will hold off on name and pic till tracking/delivery are confirmed***

**correction to 3 month dispute rather than 4**
Back on April 15th of this year I purchased a custom battery and a charger from a member from the forum. Initially communications were great and it was a relief to know I could now charge my own batteries.

Well now it's July 14th and I still have yet to receive the battery/ charger or my money back.

Most Communications now have been initiated by me and to hear back from seller comes as a surprise.

So here you will see all the reasoning I've been given by the seller as to not having received either my money back or what I had purchased.

- I've lost count if it was twice or three times that Canada post was not aware of my address *according to seller* (even though this has been my primary address for over 10 yrs (including all bills and all packages)
- Place of work was broken into causing inability to ship
- MOved to new address package was buried and not able to find
- Direct quote "I have everything you paid for. I can't explain why I still have it."
- Both of us attended the Rawdon event where we finaly met for the first time and I was once again told "I forgot it at home I was in a rush"

I don't mind stating that:
It took a few members of my team to help focus my frustrations to the forum vs. having an altercation at the event. As this is my first season I've grown quite fond of the Honor system in airsoft and given the respect I have for the sport as a whole and my fellow team mates and players

The Seller has once again committed to having shipped the package today Monday July 14th and provide a tracking number. However I still don't see how so much time can pass without having a resolution to this issue. This being my first season out gaming and the seller being a respected member of the community, I'm feeling a bit out gunned.

I've asked for assistance and received some helpful advice from two local players and the mods have locked one of his threads.

I have all communications between the seller and myself and timestamped chat logs of every conversation with the seller, which I will release upon request after 9pm tonight if no tracking number is provided by the seller.

Now I'm posting to both air out this dirty laundry and also ask the community for their thoughts on the situation and for any and all advice to find a resolution to this issue.

At the request of mods or seller I will remove this post if and when the issue is resolved, as it stands I'm running out of options for the return of my money or delivery of my purchase

swatt that's a pretty shit position to be in. I wouldn't know what to say however as I'm still a newer player I can tell you that in all my dealings I've paid in full for any items purchased from the boards well in advance to them being shipped to me. I believe both buyers and sellers enter each transaction with a level uncertainty, hence the trader rating. Given the state you and I are both in I've opened it to the community for their thoughts and suggestions. Honor is the cornerstone of our sport and I believe that people much like your buyer and my seller will be seen by the community for their dishonest ways and leave it to the community to hold these people responsible for their actions. i.e. threads locked, accounts suspended, loss of age verified status. Again as being new to the threads I only look for advice and guidance from the MODS and tenured players

Did you open a trade dispute (contact an admin) and leave negative feedback? At the very least it'd be a heads up to the other members of the community.

No matter how this transaction ends up turning out, this deserves a negative feedback.

I've left negative feedback, and have been in contact with the admins. With any luck this will be resolved soon. As this being my first negative experience I can tell you it really sucks and can say that I will be a more informed buyer moving forward.
