    How long before you know you been scammed?

    I am not here to slam his name or accuse him of scamming me.....yet. However its almost been two weeks since I bought this sub http://www.caraudio.com/forums/subwo...12-*mint*.html

    He said it was suppose to be shipped out by last weekend and I pm'd him a few times but his mailbox is full and he hasnt cleared them yet. I paid through paypal and when negotiating he said yes to my offer but said I send as gift, of course I told him no so I paid a little extra to cover pp fees. Just wondering how long before should I wait before I file a claim? Thanks guys

    this raises a red flag. did the seller sent you any type of tracking info? i'd wait another day unless you got good reason he's scamming you

    Do you have any way of contacting him other than PMs? PayPal is usually pretty good about making refunds even a while after the deal has been made, so I wouldn't worry about it too much just yet.

    no other way except through here, and his box is still full. Im not that worried about it because I didnt send as gift , just wondering how much longer to wait before I file a claim. This ***** too because I really want this sub

    Smart idea about not sending as a gift, if you had you would be SOL. Pretty sure paypal gives you 30 days to file a claim, I would give him another week maximum.

    I can't stand sellers who don't make it their priority to ship your item out when you paid for it immediately. When someone pays me or I pay someone. I expect the item to go out the next day if not another day at the most with updated tracking information.

    It said he was last on here 2 days ago. When was the last time you got in contact with him?

    Re: How long before you know you been scammed?

    PayPal gives you 90 days to dispute. Do not open a dispute a week after a transaction is made. Life happens and people may get busy. Not everyone makes the internet a daily part of life. For all you know his computer may have died, internet is out. May have gotten sick, been in an accident etc. Unless you are just completely hard up for your money back, just be a bit patient. I know that is asking a lot as im super impatient myself, but try.I sold a few things to people here last week and offered free shipping, sadly to my surprise shipping turned out to cost a TON on both items. $45 to ship sound dampener and like $40 to ship a radio. So i lost out a ton on those sales, but i advertised free same day shipping and i had them out within minutes of receiving payment. Not everyone has that luxury or ability. My vote goes for being patient unless as i said your hard up for the $$ which means your shouldnt have bought the item to begin with. What happens in the future if you sell something and life happens that puts you behind and your buyers are opening disputes? You would wish they would be patient with you.

    I understand your points and where you are coming from however as someone else pointed out he was signed in on here 2 days ago so everything you just said has no valid point.
