    Craig that was this weeks question, I know it seems harsh but I had not heard anything back from the guy after repeatedly emailing him. I am not a beat around the bush guy, I like to be direct and open, and when there is a problem I come out and ask questions. My relentless attitude is something I value as a strength, and I only use it when needed. Whew On a much nicer note, I did finally get a reply that he sent it, and fingers crossed it arrives okay. Only one state over should be quick and safe. If the guy would have just been honest that he hadn't sent it yet, instead of telling me it was returned and then keeping me in the dark, I would be out shooting film instead of writing about it :P

    Been a month today, no film or reply back from this guy. I requested the Admins consider a classified feedback system. I think also a good lesson I learned it don't send money order, with a paypal or similar I can file a claim. In this case I am out my $20 and he is ignoring any messages. I also personally talked to my mail man and he confirmed that no packages have been returned or held for me.

    I feel yer pain pardner, I've been ripped off too. These days I look at join date and number of posts before I decide if I want to chance it. I sell to newbies, but never buy from one.

    We've deleted all his posts in the classifieds until this is resolved. If anyone else has had problem transactions with user "DSK," please notify the moderators.

    Thanks. The terms of use are such that these are just transactions between individuals, and APUG can't be responsible for what happens, but nonetheless, we try to do what we can to resolve the few problems that we hear about. We can't guarantee transactions, but we can weed out the sellers and buyers who for whatever reason, can't seem to do business in a straightforward way. Also, if we have access to personal contact information that isn't part of the user's public profile, we can try to contact them on behalf of the other party in the transaction, if they haven't been able to contact them themselves.

    Well, David... This makes me feel very good about buying or selling here on APUG. I think we all understand that the Mods can't spend all their time Moderating "deals between individuals" but we really do appreciate your efforts. I have a boat-load of stuff I need to sell but I'll never take advantage here and expect to be "called-out" if I ever make a mistake. That's only fair. BTW, I'm not looking to buy. I think I have all I want now. I just need to sell a bunch of stuff to leave my son a few bucks. That's many years from now (I hope) so I expect to be bothering APUG for a few years. I value my reputation so... well... there you have it.
