Apparently PayPal only lets you file claims within 45 days of the transaction. Oh well.

 

Yes.  Add me to the list.  He still has my mint Atari 2600 Vader for component mod.  Never got my paypal payment back either as I was willing to give a chance until after the window closed to make a complaint.

I think at this point everyone who had/has any money or hardware invested into this shmuck and has not received a refund or their hardware back has to expect that they will never get these things back. It's over. The time to file for chargebacks has likely lapsed and getting law enforcement involved is less likely as so much time has passed and he's apparently on the move. Just have to deal with it and learn from this experience. Keep dealings in check. Do not let months pass with the assumption that someone is just going to make it right out of nowhere. Remember the time frame that you have for paypal chargebacks should things go south...and for the love of God contact the police if someone blatantly steals from you. 

 

And for the original thread starter (SwampFox), you are a POS and should not only be ashamed of yourself but you should have been actively making good attempt to reimburse these folks rather than providing stories that frankly nobody gives a sh*t about. We all have tough lives...man up and pay your dues.

Yeah as much as you want to trust someone NEVER let chargeback time pass. Open the case and let it go. The case has like 7 days for an update anyhow.... If you go long enough to require a chargeback and still can't commit within that time AND the chargeback time then you obviously deserve the chargeback.

 

One more thing STOP GIFTING people lol. I have many people gift to me and that's fine they trust me that much but I will never encourage anybody to gift even to people you trust. It is not worth it. Look at it this way $100 payment is $3.20 in fees. Is it really worth that? If someone wants $100 profit I would rather fork out $104 and pay the fees for ins. That's just how I do things though.

 

Unfortunately for me ebay over the past 15 years has made me the most untrusting person out there regardless of who you are.

I'm going to be selling off some of my personal systems to get the money to ship things back to people. I don't want to alarm anyone. That's why I'm telling you all.

how about you shit or get off the pot, it does no one any good telling people that your going to do something after you already failed doing something you told people you were going to do 

 

if you are sincere about selling your own personal stuff to make things good, THEN DO IT, and once you are DONE come back and make things RIGHT, dont just goblin fart in here making more false promises, your entire problem to begin with is just that, do you not comprehend that your word is worthless at this point?

 

people want actions, not more promises, Its really simple

Pardon me, but get the f*** out of here. Nobody is going to buy anything from you here buddy. If someone actually does I would not only be surprised, but would also think they would need their head examined.

 

Here's an idea. Get a JOB and use the income to send things back to people. Stop being a leach on your parents and others and straighten your shit out already.

I don't get it, so everyone is mad this guy stole from people right? Yet there is other members here who have stolen money from many people here for years and very few even seem to care? Of course if i mention their names then my post magically gets deleted and i get banned from the topic lol. Seems a bit absurd, theft is theft is it not or is it ok when its a longtime member?

If you're ending your modding services at least edit your posts on various sites stating so. The first post mentions nothing.

If you have a bunch of peoples stuff and for so darn long and your so darn broke why not just offer to let them to pay for the shipping(not that they should have to) and them send you the labels in the mail so you can send the stuff back to them.  Then you could pay them back the shipping when you get the money from selling your stuff if you ever do.  If it were me and you had my stuff and the shipping was maybe $5 to $10 or so I'd rather just pay and send you the label and get my stuff back and then worry about getting the money for the shipping I shouldn't have had to pay for back, instead of waiting and waiting after hearing excuse after excuse.  Of course I would not send you any money what so ever to ship, just a prepaid label with my ship to address on it.

^ agreed

 

if I had a childhood memory held hostage by a junkie id pay to get it back, even if its in baggies, cause at least someone who is not a complete fuckup could screw it back together and hope they only lost 10$ and not whatever the price was + buying a whole new system  + postage 

 

doesnt matter, he already said months ago he was all settled up, and here he is begging more forgiveness on even more systems, its a flubbing joke

 

ps I said flubbing cause my 2 year old repeated me saying "FUCKING chunk of dog shit on the side of a west Baltimore ghetto storm sewer ass head turd eating shitpile express twatwaffle" , so im making a habit to not say that

So why is the title still implying the service is available when it's been established the service is much slower than a typical bill through USA government? And on top of that the person needs more money to ship stuff back??

 

I'd change the title to "not accepting" until this person cleans up his act.

To be fair, he did change his sig quite a while ago to note that.

This entire episode has become legend around here anyway. And any "Service/Mods/Etc.!" thread that's into its 20th page is probably going to throw some red flags, even without reading it--no marketplace thread runs that long without devolving into controversy (unless it's a sticky or an otherwise long-running sale thread).

Even if somebody managed to bypass those defense lines of community lore, common sense, and the contents of this thread entirely and contacts SwampFox about a job, I'd like to think he'd have the good sense to decline.

Don't worry, he is selling off your(I mean his) personal items to get some money send everyone's stuff back, like a month and a half ago.  Sure it won't be much longer.  It is about time for him to come back on here and provide another excuse or sob story.
