    How Long?

    How long do you wait to get something before you start looking at it as a possible scam? 1 month? 2? Just curious, think I may have a potential situation, just waiting now to see how it plays out...

    All depends on communication with the seller, but at the 1 month mark there better be some **** good communication to explain why your stuff isn't there yet.

    Re: How Long?

    i'd say 2 weeks unless the person said it may be a little bit.....think about it, if you sold something to someone, you might be busy for a few days-a week, but after that you gotta be thinkin, "man this guy is gonna be pissed if I don't tell him whats up"

    Eh...communication has been decent...product was supposedly shipped, and was supposed to have been recv'd by middle of last week. Still have not seen it, and now it may have been sent to the wrong address. I'm getting a bit suspicous as the seller hasn't been on in the last 4 days, so unless i hear something, or see my purchase soon, I'll have little choice but to post some negative feedback...

    i've waited six weeks for group buy stuff. but for anything else, one week of bad communication is good enough for a forum callout IMO

    Yup, I agree, which is why I haven't been pressing the issue too hard...everyone has things in life that get in the way, its happened to me before too.

    Yeah, payment was via a money order. So....took me a few days to get it, then had to mail it, then had to wait for it to clear his bank. All understandable delays really, but they are starting to add up a bit. I think if I don't have some form of resolution by the end of the week, I'll say enough is enough...

    Sometimes it takes a thread for a seller to get their *** in gear. Especially if they value their presence on the forum.

    At 40 bucks I'd think its just somebody bein slow not a scam. If I was gonna scam I'd make it worthwhile, not just 40 bucks.

    Some people think that on small sales they aren't important and they can drag their feet. Sometimes that *****.

    Yeah, good point...if it was a scam, then it woulda been something worthwhile. I'll continue to wait and see for a bit longer, and might make a thread if need be. Thanks everyone!
