    Need Your help APUG

    Hey guys,

    So a couple of weeks ago I saw a great deal on film here in the Classified section. I contacted the seller, offered a price and mailed my Postal Money order for $20. He has been giving me the run around, and said last time that the package returned undeliverable. My apartment complex has big locked boxes for packages and the postal service will also give a post card if its still to big. I was checking the mail daily, so his story isn't adding up. I will post his email exchange, and I hope someway we can get a resolution. It's not a lot of money either, I upheld my end of the deal, I think I was doing the guy a favor by buying his expired film. Advice, a rag to cry with, or something useful requested.

    Email exchange:
    Daniel,

    What's the story? Did you scam me for $20 bucks? I didn't have to buy your film, I upheld my side of the deal. I think I have absolutely 100% fair and also communicated clearly as well. I need a response as to whats going on. I will be notifying the admins on Apug of this issue.

    First I think it would be good to delete your address and his phone number from the message above. Have you tried calling him and talking about what is happening instead of playing email tag. You can also have the package delivered with confirmation to make sure it gets delivered or an attempted delivery was made.

    I have nothing to hide, I have been waiting since Thursday for any response from him, yet he posted a new ad to sell stuff in the Classified section.

    I've taken the liberty of deleting the personal info from the first post. Even if you have nothing to hide, and your address is probably public information, it's not really such a great idea to expose it to search engines, and whatever your interaction with the other party, posting his phone number is in bad form.

    Did you call him?

    If it gets returned again, ask for a tracking number. The fee for delivery confirmation is nominal at the post office, and I think it's free if you use USPS.com.

    In my area USPS is going through some serious changes.
    Personel cuts etc.

    Your route may have had a sub so it's possible something happened especially at an apt complex.
    I wouldn't light the stakes just yet.

    Bruce,

    Had no trouble getting any mail this whole 2 weeks, even ordered stuff of ebay and the likes, plus I live in a big complex, 500 units, so the mail guy is consistent. I know mistakes happen and I need to be a bit more patient but I am still concerned for the outcome. I used up the rest of my film waiting for his to arrive

    talk to the person who delivers your mail, go to the post office
    and see if they can HOLD the package at the post office
    instead of trying to deliver it ...

    of tell the guy who is shipping it, to write HOLD AT PO FOR PICK UP on the box

    good luck !

    Is the above really how you started dialogue? If so it may have some bearing on the outcome.
