I purchased a Soundstream XXX Motor from Parker G on December 6th and all correspondence were great. His asking price was $205. and after asing him if he could go any lower he said he could do $195 if I sent it as a gift. Accidentally I sent the $195. as payment at first and he refunded my money and requested me to send it again as a gift according to our agreement. I resent the money as a gift and he confirmed that he received it. He was very good about responding to all my questions and talking to me about technical aspects of my build and on Friday December 9th I messaged him asking when it would ship and he said
"I just called my bank and the funds still haven't been added. So if it clears tomorrow before post office closes ill ship tomorrow if not it should go monday."
I wasn't in a huge hurry to receive the motor, but after getting that response I expected it to be in transit and at my doorstep soon.
A few weeks went by and still no motor, so I messaged him about it and noticed that he hadn't been online since the day I sent the payment. I thought it may be a coincidence and waited a little longer and once again no motor arrived. It has been 6 weeks since I sent him the money and have not heard from him or received the motor. He seemed to have positive itrader feedback and after talking to him he didn't seem to be a shady guy. I don't know what to do, I can't contact him and I can't contact paypal about a claim since the money was sent as a gift. If any of you know Parker G could you contact him and see if he forgot or at least do me the favor of telling me that I got ripped off. I would just like to stop hoping and expecting for the motor to arrive every time I check the mail.
Any feedback would be great, thanks.
