Weirdness with auction I won(O/T)

773 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  manley
I was the high bidder on some seat belts for my Mach on June 6th. I'm still waiting for a reply from the seller. This has NEVER happened to me before. Doesn't the guy want his money? He has a good feedback profile.

I'm impatient because my car is almost ready to be put on the road and I would like to have seat belts before I drive it around...

I've sent at least 4 emails with no response. What to do?

I like to get on with transactions too....that does suck!!

Never been burned either....of course, I have the sense to know stuff happens......

I guess I've waited that long for a reply
It get real irritating doesn't it. I won some craftsman tools one time, and it took 2 weeks for the seller to respond. He was on vacation, and didn't think about that when he listed the tools. I had pretty much written it off when he responded. He was real nice, even paid the shipping on the items for me. Hang in there for a little while longer.
You can contact ehay and request his personal info. They will email his phone # etc. to you and give yours to him as well.

At least this way you can try contacting him by phone.
I'm going to give it a little while longer as I understand(and have heard) that unexpected situations can occur. It just seems like the closer I get to driving my car, the longer I end up waiting for little things! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Oh well, the wait should be worth it!
I had a similar situation about a year ago. After about a week-and-a-half, the seller replied explaining that her computer had gone belly-up on her, and she had just got it back.
Yeah, things go wrong from time to time. If you never hear anything make a neutral feedback saying no contact. You may hear from them down the road and if they are apologetic and try to work with you on it I say go for it. If a week goes by and you have heard nothing I would say move on. You have not paid them so you are lucker than most.
Be careful what you say in the e-mails. Maybe an emergency came up, like a death in the family or an accident. Or something like that
I received at reply today. He said his computer went down.

No problem here...just glad to get things moving! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Thanks for helping me bide my time, guys. It's all good.
