Thread: Should I or shouldn't I?

    Should I or shouldn't I?

    I need some advice.

    On Oct 9th I made a trade with an individual on this site. The member in question had over 100 positive feedback.

    Fast forward to Oct 28th.

    I had received no cards, despite the fact that this individual live only a couple of hours down the road (same Country and Province). Their end has also not been marked as received.

    Also, I have received no communication from them. I send them a PM asking if there was some kind of delay. No reply. I send 2 more PM's the following week, incluing one on Nov 2nd that says if they don't reply, I will put the trade into dispute.

    ON NOvember 4th I put the trade into dispute and noticed that this individual has another trade in dispute, same time as mine was made.

    I also noticed that the member has not logged in since oct 20th. The trade is in dispute, although it has been over a week and no mods have commented or contacted me about it.

    My first thought would be that I hope nothing happened to this member, but even if it had, he logged in on oct 20th, 11 days after our trade, so those cards would have been shipped already by that time.

    So now I am assuming that I have been ripped off.

    The cards in question are not a huge deal to me, combined book value on the 2 cards is less than $25.

    So here is my question....

    I searched this person on whitepages.ca and was able to find their phone number....

    Should I call, or would I be stepping over a line?
    Looking for Patrick Roy, PK Subban, Carey Price, SPX SHADOWBOXES (ANY YEAR), Black Diamond Cup rings (Any year)

    I'll try again tomorrow.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    You're a far better man than me sir. I'd have been in my car after work and probably in a holding cell three hours after that :D

    Seriously tho, good luck to you, right is right and you deserve an answer at the very least.

    Be patient. The person has good feedback and chances are something happened in his life that's preventing him from sending you your cards. Does he have any other activity on this site?

    I've had a similar situation before I became a mod. I made the call, but didn't come out with guns blazing. Worked out in the end.

    I've also had someone call me from eBay before. I bought something from the USA and paid for USPS shipping. They went ahead and shipped UPS instead. It was a 100$ item, so needless to say, I wasn't too pleased because USPS charges 5$ brokerage fees while UPS charges 50% of the declared value. I contacted them to explain the situation through eBay (no guns blazing), but got a call in return. At first he thought that I was trying to cheat him. We talked about brokerage fees and the like. I sent scans and we worked it out.

    Sometimes a little guilt expressed the right way does a lot. Maybe more so than force, especially if you are dealing with someone who acts like a child. How do you think your parents ever got you to do something that you didn't want to do?

    GL & cheers,
