I sympathize with you, I've been waiting for two months for some Ilford paper and Rollei film purchased from a member. I used paypal, and still havent gotten my money back. I guess he shut his PP account down.
File a Paypal complaint and that might get things moving along better.
Threads merged, but I think it makes the most sense to post in the thread where the camera was advertised originally.
This is the reason why i dont want to buy from the classifieds. We need a feedback option for sellers so we know if they are trustworthy.
I agree. If the seller does not resolve the problem in one week, this thread should then be moved to the original ad. Then we would all know who the bad guy is.

Really sorry to hear about this. Very disappointing. Hope all works out well in spite of the delay. I've always had pretty good luck selling on this type of "special interest" board, but I guess it's always a bit of a risk.
I agree, move it to the original sale post if this isn't resolved soon so we can all know who to avoid in the future. It's a shame to have to worry about that.
if the deadbeat seller doesn't respond to email,
i have a feeling he won't care about posts in his/her for sale thread ..
( added 1hr later )
sometimes there are legit reasons for long delays &C.
have you tried an alternate email address or
making contact by telephone ?

When dirt gets thrown on the internet, it takes on a life of its own and never really dies. It is always there some place.
I'd suggest that you:
1) communicate the details with the moderators;
2) if they cannot resolve the matter to your satisfaction, request that they re-open the original thread (I'm assuming that it is closed) and allow you to post the details of the problem to that thread.
I might suggest that the moderators/Sean/Council consider making this approach a policy.
It is the lack of communication that is the concern - delays happen for a myriad of good and bad reasons.
