    Questionable dealings with audio_phill.

    I'll start off by saying that I've had plenty of smooth deals with Phillip Reedy. Probably a half dozen or more. It pains me to have to bring this to the public eye because of that fact. If it weren't for the dollar amount, I wouldn't bother.

    Anyone who has dealt with Phill will know that he will cut you a great deal and make it worth your while. But, he will also talk around in circles until you are a little confused about what the deal actually is. This happens because he will suggest so many things, different trade values coupled with cash amounts, all great stuff. Par for the course when it comes to these sorts of deals, I'm sure. But it seems when you deal with him, the timelines get smeared and deals overlap, or simply get confused or introduced with each other and it makes for a slightly hectic, but usually fruitful deal. That said, I will cut to the chase.

    Ultimately, my gripe is an incomplete deal that was made, that for a value of $325 I would receive a minty AXIS 12" and a 12" PR to go with it. I have completely fulfilled my end of the deal months ago with both cash and items shipped, and have simply been waiting to take delivery of those items that he agreed to ship to me. Our extensive dealings involved the products listed in the threads below. Both of which were in his hands, long ago. Initially, the deal started with just partial installments of cash for the Soundsplinter motor. Things grew after he took interest in other items I had listed for sale and dealings went back and forth (far too many details to list) until things were squared away on my end.

    I've been waiting since early December (for deals that were initiated on the dates in my For Sale threads below) for my AXIS to be delivered and I don't want to wait any longer. I've gotten a few reasons why he wasn't able to ship. Things such as being busy with work, wife being sick and no babysitter, not enough cash to ship, etc... Now I'm not getting responses, though he is logging regularly enough to get my PM's and know the situation. Actually, both here and CACO.

    I understand people are busy, and I am an extremely patient person. I am also an extremely busy person. I head up two departments at a medical manufacturing company, which leads to long hours within long weeks. But, I still make sure people receive the things they buy form me on forums and I return all messages. It simply doesn't require that much time or effort to make it impossible for months on end. I've even managed to do this from a Navy vessel while underway so it's time for excuses to stop and the deal to be complete.

    Precision Frequency Generator <--- Linky

    Big TC Motor! <--- Linky

    I can provide screenshots of PM's and such. I would just like to hear from Phill on the matter, or anyone who may know or live near Phill that could provide insight into other reasons why this has happened. Leaving open the possibility that this is not yet Negative Feedback.

    Yep, Shane. lol

    I'm holding out hope for the best, simply because things have gone pretty well in the past. Time will tell. I do have his contact info and as time goes by I will consider getting in touch with his local authorities to resolve this. I suppose I could also make a trip to Virginia, ring his doorbell and politely ask for the items.

    Re: Questionable dealings with audio_phill.

    Indeed, I am very happy to report that they have both arrived in perfect working order. Got the PR yesterday and the AXIS today. Literally just finished sweeping the AXIS to verify all four coils were good.

    Didn't like the wait but I am happy to report that everything is on the level and I am satisfied. Thank you, Phil!
