    Time to ask for your money back, (good luck, Charlie), and name him in this thread so others don't get suckered in.

    I think the real measure of the problem is the distance between promises and actual deeds. If John Sexton says that it will take a year to deliver a print, and if you actually get his print within about a year, then nothing's wrong. If he tells me that it will take five years, but that he delivers in five years, I don't see the harm.

    But if some bozo tells you "next week" and three months down the road you have got nothing, then it's just time to say chuck you Farley, and ask for your money back.

    Personally, if someone purchases a print from me for money (print exchanges are a different story), I usually get it out within a month and don't cash the check until it's about ready to go out.

    I've bought a few prints from people on APUG, and generally they've taken a few months. I just don't get worked up about such things. I put up money for amidol that took two years with no clear timetable at any point. I think I waited a year for my first issue of _Emulsion_ after subscribing. I've got some cash up for the Ilford ULF film order that is supposed to arrive in May, but if it doesn't, I'll manage.

    If a check is sent and once cleared I send the print ASAP. If anything delays the print from sending I email the person as well as call them on the phone to explain the situation.

    But that is just me.

    I send prints the day or if its too late, the day after recieving payment. I make sure to have at least the amount of prints on hand as I am auctioning. My current problem is getting people to pay on time - I've got one customer that bought a print on feb 15th that still hasn't paid. But I've got a few good customers since then, paying the same day, or the day after committing to purchase. I'm always so happy that someone likes my work that I even upgrade them to airmail at my cost; I'm not too great of a businessman...

    I think you should ask for your money back and probably buy a print from me

    Are you auctioning on eBay? I believe there are rules about when payment is due, beyond which, you're not obligated to honor the auction. Then you can leave the buyer negative feedback and relist the print.

    When I sell a print and if cannot send out within 2 weeks I consider that customer is gone. I ship my prints within three days-to-two weeks (two weeks take prints painted with oils).
    However I aslo know photographers that ship in three months, but it is about "large" number of prints (say 100 prints).

    If you wait for one single print that long time (months) someting is wrong.
