View Full Version : Deal between mjbailey21 and hyybrid89crx_si

12-02-2004, 07:34 PM
Matt(mjbailey21) is buying Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas off me. He is sending me 35.00 and upon reciept I am shipping the game. I am posting this so he feels more comfortable buying from me. I will update this thread when I recieve the payment and he will update it when he gets the game.

12-02-2004, 08:41 PM
So people send you money first for product, but you wont send first for product? Seems very unfair? Not flamming, just wondering

12-02-2004, 08:51 PM
that aint right. If u wait for people to send you the product. I can see if u both sent it at the same time....but dude thats lame,

12-02-2004, 09:01 PM
I always had that problem when buying or selling. What me and my dad always did was C.O.D.

12-02-2004, 09:21 PM
He was interested in my TV/DVD player, he said paypal is a no. I said ok Ill do COD, then at first he was like OK!!!! "wait for my money 2 come back from paypal" so it came back then magically he's never home during the day. Paypal has excellent coverage, I even said halfup front and it will work. But still, no go....and he says "Only way we will do it is if you send first, thats the only way".

12-02-2004, 09:26 PM
i always recieve payment first, just the safest way for me :)

12-02-2004, 09:36 PM
it's always money first then ship product for me. does sounddomain or crutchfield ship the product and then you pay them?

12-02-2004, 10:06 PM
Yea its always money. Why wouldnt you do that?

12-02-2004, 10:42 PM
ive sent money first....i get products there just Fu(cked bnot working, blown or i never get them period. great method for me i call it the SMILE! gaurntee, screw mike internationally, locally, Everywere!
Patents pending.

12-02-2004, 10:42 PM
Look, for everyone who doesnt get it. I will ONLY send first if I have dealt with you before. Is that such a FU**ing hard thing to grasp?. Not trying to sound like a **** but ****. Paypal has screwed me before. Over 2000.00 **** dollars. I cant do COD because I am NOT HOME during the day. If anyone does not believe me they can call my work at 802-878-6868 and ask what hours David works and how often I am actually in the shop. As for the deal with getloudspl I didnt even think about not being here for COD because I was kinda excited about getting the **** thing. As for half up front I aint gonna do that either. What is to stop him from ****ing me out of half my money?. Sure, his rep is ruined on here but it doesnt take much to make another name and scam again or go to another forum and scam someone else. Not saying he is a scammer but I refuse to take the chance. I hope this answers everyones questions. If not feel free to ask some more.

12-02-2004, 10:52 PM
ive sent my money first every time. ebay is the same way. you dont BUY IT NOW, then get the item and then pay.

nor does it work that way in a physical store. you pay them, then you walk with the stuff. thats how it will awlways work.

paypal with a credit card is the safest trasnaction. IMO

12-02-2004, 10:55 PM
That is is but I have no credit card. Plus I just cant stand paypal and refuse to use them unless I absolutely have to

12-02-2004, 10:56 PM
Also, you dont actually lose sight of your money at a store. You are holding the merchandise IN YOUR HANDS when you pay for it. You arent trusting them to mail it to you. Besides, you will have more luck getting money back from like best buy than you do a person.

12-02-2004, 10:59 PM
It's $35.00 here people...

Why would you pay half, then the other half? I could understand if it was a few 100- but not 35.... C'mon. Use common sense.

12-02-2004, 11:44 PM
This wasnt a thread to flame hybrid...
He felt it would make me feel better if everybody understood the terms so he didnt try to make a get away with my cash.

I will keep yall up to date.

Thanks, Matt

12-03-2004, 12:00 AM
Thank you for posting mj. Hopefully everyone understands now.

12-03-2004, 12:43 AM
Im not new, I have references. Ask Mr Lokie or Pro-Rabbit

12-03-2004, 10:07 AM

Bdiddy and I did that. It took a little longer, but it works.

12-03-2004, 04:33 PM
I always insist on payment first, and respectably do the same thing. The only excpetion to that is if the person is real new (like I am here) and has no other feedback, then its product first. For instance, I am new here and a seller is too. Then we go to feedback. I have about 150+ positive via eBay, OCF and heatware. If the other has less, than I want product before I send ca$h.

****** ive been visting these forums for about 8 months (recently registered) and screwed up my perfect 0 posts.

12-03-2004, 05:40 PM
I can vouch for Hybrid. Me and him have a deal goin on that and have always been quick to respond and very understanding. BTW: have you recievd it yet? If not I'll scan and send you a copy of the receipt. Email me when you get a chance, [email protected] Thanx and MJ you should have no problems.

12-03-2004, 07:37 PM
Not yet man, please email me a copy of the reciept so I can talk to someone on my end. Like I said though man, double check the address.

12-03-2004, 08:28 PM
sent Hybrid

12-04-2004, 12:44 PM
That is is but I have no credit card. Plus I just cant stand paypal and refuse to use them unless I absolutely have to

You don't have to have a CC to use paypal, you can set it up using your bank account. And when you send him the payment through Paypal the funds will be debited from your account and tranferred into his.

As a buyer i always send money first as well, and as a seller I only accept payment first before I ship.

12-05-2004, 12:30 AM
Well, everyone is different. I do things my way and you do things your way.

12-05-2004, 08:26 AM

12-13-2004, 11:20 PM
Nothing to worry about yet, but sent the money order out about 5 days ago. Hybrid has yet to get online in a few days.
Just an update!

12-13-2004, 11:29 PM
i'm currently in middle of a transaction also. but with something a little bit more expensive than a video game ;)

hopefully he doesnt bail out on us. hopefully there is still some good ol people out there that can still follow through on thier end of a bargain.

12-14-2004, 12:13 AM
Hehehe, a video game i REALLY WANT, haha jk.

....i hope he doesnt bail...

good thing it was a money order, I'll hit up the post office here in a few days if I get itchy, he seems like a good guy though...

dont they all?


12-14-2004, 09:36 AM
No worries guys. I am still around. I went to maine to pick up my girlfriends sister for christmas. Which FUC**NG ******. I ended up hitting a rock on a **** road I was told was not that bad. Now I have a hole in my transmission, a bent shifting rod thingy, and a broken CV joint. Not to mention my car is still there and I am 2 states away. So, anyway I have not seen a money order here yet. I will double check though. Maybe it will get here today. As for the other deal, I will be checking it out some more today. I will keep you posted man.

12-14-2004, 09:43 AM
i can pledge for bailey......:)

12-17-2004, 02:19 PM
Some weird things going on with Hyybrid... money order is no where to be found~!


12-17-2004, 02:53 PM
oh dear god this is still going on , yeah ive been screwed money orders never a safe way to send money....<been screwed many times sending money!
good luck thou

12-17-2004, 03:10 PM
naw its prolly just the holiday RUSH!!!. or did he recieve it then disapear? :)

12-17-2004, 03:16 PM
I'll give him another day or two. I just suggest everybody steer clear of him till he ships me my game.
I know he also owes a few other people somethings as well....

12-20-2004, 05:36 PM
Still no game!

Believe that or not.

12-20-2004, 05:49 PM
easily believable :D

12-20-2004, 05:58 PM
:( sorry to hear that did he say hge finally got the MO?

hopefully ou still get it its a great game ;)

12-20-2004, 06:14 PM
im currently doing a deal with him as we speak, i traded him a ps2 w/san andreas and some extra's for a 3rd gen 15gb ipod.

i thoght my ps2 was a newer model, but it turns out it was one of the 1st gens, so he said that i either need to send him some more money or he'll ship it back, i just sent out the extra money yesterday, hopefully ill get the ipod soon. ill let you know.

i dont think he's being all that shady, it just seems he has a hard schedule.

ill let you know how the deal go's through

*he's had my ps2 for a week already*

12-20-2004, 07:01 PM
^^^sounds like thats also the game thats originally in question^^^^


12-20-2004, 07:03 PM
Still no game!

Believe that or not.

Still no money order. Amazing, obviously I am not gonna send the **** game without the **** money. Like I told him. Spend the 3.00 to do a trace on it at the post office and he can figure exactly what is going on. They will tell him if it was cashed or not and if it was they will send him a copy of the front and back of it.

12-20-2004, 07:04 PM
^^^sounds like thats also the game thats originally in question^^^^


Yup, that would be the one.

12-20-2004, 07:05 PM
easily believable :D

And that is easily believable why?

12-20-2004, 07:32 PM
Well, he came back from the dead and did try to contact me.

Although his email was nothing more than cuss words and lack there of-maturity, he swears on his life he never recieved my money order.

I wish I could post his email but that would just be rude.

I believe somewhere in there said something like "now you are left with nothing!"


Hopefully he is being honest and will chase after USPS.


12-20-2004, 11:07 PM
Believe me I will get to the bottom of this. I already talked to the post office. They said if anyone other than me cashed the money order that it is mail fraud and forgery. One is a federal offense and the other a felony. If I find out someone here forged my sig and cashed it then I will be pressing charges. Like I said though it takes up to 60 days but hopefully it will come through sooner. As for the email, what do you expect after the email you sent me?. I was mad as hell. I can normally hold my temper but that just didnt happen. I apologize to an extent but you should have asked for an update instead of a threat about calling my local PD. Which, by the way their number is 802-658-2700 in case you really want to go that route. While I am at it, my cell is 802-343-6899 and my home phone is 802-864-5712 and my work is 802-878-6868. Now you cant say you couldnt get ahold of me. And for one, I have not "Come back from the dead" as you put it. I have answered all of your emails and pm's. Anyway, any other questions you can either pm me, email me or CALL ME!!!!

12-20-2004, 11:21 PM
heh... you too fight like you are married...

just kiddin.

12-20-2004, 11:35 PM
how old hyybrid? you're yelling... it's so... it's so uneccesary.

12-21-2004, 07:36 PM
Isnt a federal offense a felony?

12-21-2004, 07:40 PM
yeah...just wasn't thinking clearly. Both are felonies.

12-23-2004, 10:47 PM
Got it today. Was under the **** porch soaking wet. Sorry matt for all the bullshit

12-24-2004, 01:42 AM
I cant belive this is still going on.... money order is probably one of the slowest and least secure methods of payment.

12-24-2004, 01:45 AM
He didnt accept paypal.


12-28-2004, 01:44 PM
Game was sent monday via priority mail and should be in his hands by wednesday.

12-29-2004, 08:06 AM
all that over 35$ and a game what are they like 45 new if it was that big of a deal spring for the extra 10 bux and get it from the store

12-29-2004, 08:42 AM
Hey **** face,
who would have known that it would have fell and landed on the ground?
Why not save $10 on a like new game?
You must be a fool. $10 on a game is a lot. That's like what, do the math, 25% off?
I feel bad for your parents.

12-29-2004, 09:33 AM
your the one that had to wait a month for some thing that could have been taken care of for extra 10 bux or 25% how ever you wanna look at it in my eye's it wasn't worth the fight no need to get all pissy cause your cheap and why feel bad for my parents my mommy and daddy don't pay for any of my toys

12-29-2004, 01:42 PM
I'm not really that cheap if you knew me.
That has nothing to do with getting a good deal.
When I purchased this game, did you think that I knew it would take one month to get?
Did you think that I knew that he would not find the money order?
Did you think that to save $10 of course I would make the deal since I would have to buy it anyways?


12-29-2004, 02:45 PM
lol i love mr.bailey, very insightful! :)

12-30-2004, 06:18 AM
I've dealth with Hybird89crx-si before, no problems, stand up guy!!
