I'm sorry to have to report that this transaction resulted in the total loss of the $700 I sent to John Densky for the Toyo 45A. The last time he responded to a personal message here was a few days after I wired the money to him on February 13, he didn't respond at all to email sent to several different accounts. I was never able to get a tracking number from him, the camera never arrived here.
I was able to track him down on FaceBook (where he posts several times a day) in the middle of March and several messages were exchanged, with him agreeing to refund the $700 as the camera had been returned to him by the Canadian postal service. The money was not sent and he has not responded to any messages since March 28.
In the best of times, a certain amount of trust is required to conduct business on the internet through forums like this. I've been buying and selling cameras, guitars, motorcycles and computers in forums for nearly ten years, and while the transactions aren't always 100% positive, this is the first time I've been totally ripped off.
It is said that you can tell a great deal about a person by how they treat someone who is unlikely to be able to do anything to or for them. John Densky's actions speak for themselves.
