We Agree

Gary, There are about 1/2 dozen hams on this site that I would ship to prior to receiving money. I dont want to list them because I will probably forget someone and hurt their feelings. We only have our reputation and that allows us to swap and sell here. Steve is not a crook. He simply made a numbe...

Agree (almost)

Gary, You are right on with all but one issue. If an international buyer asks me to list a rig as "gift" or "parts", that negates the ability to insure it. I am willing to do so, however, if the rig is lost, damaged or destroyed, I cannot make a claim. If the buyer is willing to risk "losing it all"...

Jail

Edgar,
If he is a convicted felon, check his record. The possibility exists that he may be on probation or have a probation officer he reports to. Get that persons name and report your incident to him.

Steve, It's Time

Steve, It's going on two months since you shipped Adrians rig. Everyone has stood by you up until now. You need to initiate an insurance claim with the USPS. They will trace it and advise you as to its status. The post office works slow and it may turn up. They keep records on all international ship...

Steve Speak Up

Steve, We are on the edge of the delivery time line. I believe that the majority of hams are still holding off passing judgement.

Easy Answer

Nate, Everyone was telling you the same thing. You just decided not to listen. Steve may or may not have shipped the rig. I can understand his situation. I sent a pmo to a Ca. ham. Before it arrived, he sold it locally for a few extra $$. I sent it regular mail. I didnt even think to get tracking nu...

Reaction

Nate, There are a number on hams on this forum who aggressively attack cheats, lowlifes, crooks, miscreants, riff-raff and conmen. You have attacked honest hams, hams who disagree with you and in general approached this issue as badly as you could have. All of the people who would have actively supp...

The Truth

What he really meant was "Give me your thoughts if you agree with me." Now, Steve may or may not have sent the rig. No one is defending him. Everyone has simply said it's too early to pass judgement.

Hey Guys, Unfortunately, my experience with international shipping indicates two weeks is not a reasonable amount of time. I know you dont want to hear this, but I would say that 12 weeks is the "lost in space" time line. Two lessons: never ship usps overseas and never buy or sell overseas. At this ...
