Never saw the movie, but I could improvise.




Maybe tell him I found his number in the M4M section in our local Craigslist and that I'm clean and discrete?

Cancel your order buddy, this is taking way way way too long...

Listen, I've ordered numerous IK's out of either Idaho or California, paid by cc, had the tracking number like a couple of hours later AND the boat in my front yard within 7 days via u.p.s. and I'm out in New England!!
And believe me, I'm dealing with a person who is just really into IK's and Rafts - not a huge company or anything like that.

Good Luck, and God Be With You !!

finally got him on the phone. he says he had someone else drop it off at ups a week ago and they did not fill out any paperwork so it is still sitting there. he has promised me again that he will get it shipped tomorrow and i will have a tracking number. he swears that he is not try to scam me. he says he has been in and out of the hospital. i do not know if any of it is true. if i do not have a tracking number tomorrow, i must assume that he is a deadbeat.
UPS doesn't let people drop off items without filling out paperwork

hard to "cancel" an order from somebody that is just a rip off artist.

i will get the money back from my credit card company, but they get ripped off.

he just answered his phone and says that he sent the tracking number, that i should check my spam folder. while on the phone with him, i checked the spam. no, not there. he says he will call me back in 15 minutes with the tracking #.

i dont know why the email would go to spam, all he had to do was reply to one of my many emails, or he could have texted it, or left it in a voicemail.

maybe, just maybe i will have a tracking number today. i wont hold my breath.

Do you really think they get ripped off? He doesn't get paid for the disputed transaction. They also go after him for fraud and ruin his credit history. Too much to risk

He's probably just an idiot. A true scammer only accepts payment in a method that you have little hopes of recovery

what's the guys phone number??
perhaps a friendly chat from some buzzards might help convince him to do the right thing

that is not the number i have for him, perhaps that is a home phone.

i called the credit card company a few days after he got paid and asked about how to proceed in the event he did not follow through. at that point i had been lied to a few times already. the credit card company took it off my bill immediately, but said that there was no way to "stop payment", that he had already gotten the money.

still no response from him now a few hours after he said i would have the tracking number in 15 minutes.

i am not certain if it is a scam or if he is just a deadbeat, but the listing for the boat is still up on craigslist.

Disputing a credit charge has pretty tight rules. They hope you don't follow them, then they can just tell you tough luck. Check the rules for your card and get moving. If you don't follow their process, they could reinstate the charge. They likely just took it off for amount due, and if you are unsuccessful they will put it back on.

If you have his information, I would simply tell him to comply with the sale or you'll turn him into the state attorney general's office, and/or initiate full suit against him for which he will responsible for all court costs and attorney fees.

I would take your money back and not take any sort of object from this dude. Chances are its not worth what you are paying! Good luck

i sent a couple more emails today. i left a couple more voice mails today, ones that were very to the point. as in, get this thing shipped, or refund my money NOW.

i got 2 emails back in the last 45 minutes, one had a photo of a ups tracking number! HOWEVER, ups tracking shows that a label has been created, but that the package has not been accepted by ups!
until they have the package it and i have a delivery date, it means NOTHING!

It's hard to get reimbursed for porn you "supposedly" didn't order ....
