K0WVL - I'll Not Deal with Again

Post by WB5HAK » Mon Sep 19, 2011 4:26 pm

Without the gory details, I replied to his post on 9/15, sent a check for the item as requested that day, then saw evidence that he had broken the item and was looking for a manual to fix it. I emailed, no response. Never another email response, but the item is back for sale today. I stopped pay on the check, so he can deal with that, but thought others should know about his poor dealings. There may be a reason for all this, but one simple email would have cleared it. The fee I'm out for stop pay is a lesson for me to avoid this guy, look up my feedback then decide for yourself.

Thanks for the heads up.

I just attempted to buy a homebrew xmtr from this guy. Something didn't feel right. He replied in short spurts. Never seemed to concentrate on how or where to get the money to him.

So I came here. I noted your post as of this past MONDAY! Thanks for the heads up!

He sent me an e-mail stating that the mix-up was because of two people who had close names: Cunningham and Cummings. He said he got both checks the same day. Well then why weren't YOU contacted????

The whole e-mail didn't make sense and then he told me the xmtr I inquired about was already sold....after telling me just an e-mail prior that he still had it and could accept a check or m.o. (But he gave no name, address, callsign, etc.)

Ditto all the above, He advertised, I agreed, then sent a check priority with tracking, he renigged, unrenigged, renigged again (I think he got a better deal offer elsewhere so jacked me around.) I'm out @$6 postage and cancelled check fees, He needs to be barred from trading on line. DON'T waste your time with this guy !
